Countdown Continuity

In an interview the other day with Grant Morrison about Final Crisis, he spent some time discussing the differences between events in his book and in Countdown to Final Crisis. In short, he had nothing to do with Countdown, so any plot differences are editorial’s fault. The funny thing, to me, is how much the joke is on whose who kept buying Countdown week after week even though it was no good just because DC told them it’d feature important events. So now those events need to be ignored for important events in a book that doesn’t suck.
