Booster Gold #32

Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis brought me into the DCU with the JLI about 20 years ago (or something like that). And I'm happy to say they've still got it. Booster is fun and dopey. Skeets is snarky and sounds like L-Ron reborn. The villains are unique and interesting. Hell, even the bystanders are awesome! I can't really say anything else about it; this is a DCU super-hero book firmly lodged in DC continuity that brings both drama and humor. I loved it.

Chris Batista is perfect for this title. I knew he could handle the action and heroes, but he's good at the humor too. This may end up being my favorite series before long. THIS is what I hoped for when they announced Booster was getting an ongoing series.

Agreed. This was a fantastic--although wordy--read. Of course, that's not a complaint. I just didn't know what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised.
