Default Booster Gold #19 Discussion Thread (with Preview)

Out April 8th, its the aftermath of the "Reality Lost" arc with more of the Booster Gold & Booster Gold team!

Preview at the 'Rama: http://www.newsarama.com/php/multime....php?aid=27055

I love that caption on the cover!

"Now with 100% more Booster Gold!"



SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Interesting opening scene with Rip Hunter and Starfire.

Set up for the upcoming Wolfman-era Teen Titans arc?

Also DC's DCU Blog have a little extra from the issue here: http://dcublog.dccomics.com/2009/04/...oster-gold-19/

I like this issue a lot! Poor Michelle.

Also, Booster having a heart-to-heart with...himself. That was a nice touch.

I think this is fine for writing Michelle out of the story--please, no more killing! I liked the double Booster parts.

I really felt for Michelle in this issue and what she must be going through.

SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
I hope her disappearance doesn't lead to her dying again somewhere else or turning villainous but rather with her finding new meaning and perhaps a new heroic identity for herself.

All the double Booster stuff this issue was cool and the prospect of an army of Boosters is something i'd love to see happen one day, even if just for comedic purposes!

Also...

A Time Sphere for just $399.99? Bargain! I'll take two please!!!!!

I also think Rips mission at the beginning with Starfire might be linked to the upcoming Teen Titans storyline that is supposed to be happening in the book.

Perhaps someone will be trying to prevent the Perez/Wolfman era Titans from forming and Rips mission here was his first in trying to ensure that they do form the team????

And finally.... Rip's Chalkboard is back!

SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
1) Batman & Robin aren't Batman & Robin -- BFTC reference with a new Dynamic Duo!

2) HE is coming back -- Barry Allen? Ted Kord? Earth-2 Superman in Blackest Night?

3) The Immortals will fight side by side -- Interesting and perhaps picking up on that 13 Immortals business from Meltzer's JLA run?

4) Keep Vigilante away from the Titans -- Deathtrap crossover reference

5) The Equation is out there -- The Anti-Life Equation? Possible reference to the Oracle mini?

Good issue.

Probably the strongest issue that Dan has written this go-round. Not perfect but lots of fun and very well paced. Dan's strength is his visual storytelling.
