Comics of the Week part 1 (3/19/08)

Countdown to Final Crisis #6 - an interesting narrative style this week. The entire issue is told through the eyes of this world's Buddy Blank, a tech at Project Cadmus who reports on the release of the virus that killed Karate Kid. In a way, it was good as it spared us a lot of lame dialogue balloons - and allowed the artist to really tell a lot of the story too through the images. As for the story, it looks like the Great Disaster is upon us - and it seems unstoppable.

Justice League of America #19 - this story continues to tie in to Salvation Run but this issue gives us some key details of what might be going on, from the government's angle.

Batman and the Outsiders #5 - I am loving what Chuck Dixon is doing for this team title. First Green Arrow on board last month and then we get confirmation of who the other surprise guests are. Give you a hint - the title of the issue is "Ghosts". I loved this turn of events and can see it make an interesting side mini-series for two favorite characters of mine that I thought might be gone for good a year or so ago (there's the other hint for you).
