One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Booster Gold #32

I don't usually get this book, but it was recommended to me most highly.

GOOD THING: After the disappointment of Justice League: Generation Lost, I needed a bit of the Giffen/DeMatteis magic... and damned if this book doesn't give it to us in spades, while still being a damn good action-yarn in its own right, like all the best Dan Jurgens Booster Gold stories.

BAD THING: The last page doesn't really gel too well with the events of Brightest Day and how Maxwell Lord was revealed to the world.

The Final Verdict: Easily The Best Hero Whose Book I Haven't Been Reading! Maybe it's time I changed that...


  1. After Jurgen's run, the humor here feels so forced. It was a good story, but they hit you over the head with the "hey this is funny" stick. Dan just had a very good understated humor to his run, he was picture perfect.
    This wasn't bad, but it doesn't match what it was.

  2. I'll have to take your word for that, having not read any of the series before...
    Personally, I thought this was remarkably understated for a Giffen/DeMatteisstory...
