Beige Countdown is a Classic LNH miniseries, spinning out of the Infinite Leadership Crisis multi-writer event. It depicts the year between the Infinite Leadership Crisis and Beige Midnight.


The ideas for the series were developed by Arthur Spitzer, Lalo Martins, Martin Phipps, Saxon Brenton, and Rob Rogers, and the series was written by Arthur, Lalo, Martin, and Rob (with a sentence by Dave Van Domelen). The numbering of the series counts down (eh? eh?), starting at issue number twelve and ending with issue number zero.
