Order your copy of Countdown To Mystery #1
What had originally been planned as a new Dr. Fate ongoing series by Steve Gerber, has now been scheduled as an 8-part mini. Fate will share the book with Eclipso/Jean Loring for the run of the title.
Over on Steve Gerber's blog, Steve explains some of the reasons for these changes and encouraged readers to go forth and attempt to drum up support for the book so that it may return as an ongoing series (with or without Eclipso). Even if you don't buy a copy of the book, stop by Steve's blog and send him some positive thoughts, prayers or incantations in a get well effort; so that he can continue writing intelligent and entertaining comics for all of us.
Get Well, Steve!
Everyone else, Buy this book...

The Helmet of Fate has landed…on Kent Nelson — a man so far down on his luck, he doesn’t know what luck is! The transformative nature of the helmet grants him powers he can’t begin to comprehend…but will they make his life better, or even worse? Plus, Eclipso becomes the temptress of the DCU, bribing its heroes to the dark side in more ways than one! She succeeds…and the results will shock you!
