Overview

Exploding from the pages of 52 and exploring the timeline of the DC Universe comes a new monthly book featuring the greatest super-hero history will never know: Booster Gold!

Following the universe altering conclusion of 52, Booster Gold wants what's due to him -- membership in the Justice League of America! But the timestream's in trouble, and Booster Gold is in the center of it! Now he must make a choice: reclaim his former glory or do the right thing -- and forgo the credit.

In BOOSTER GOLD: 52 PICKUP, someone is exploiting the ravaged time stream, hoping to eliminate the world's greatest heroes -- and only Booster Gold can stop them. But, really -- Booster Gold? Why him? What does time master Rip Hunter truly want? And what shocking figure is behind it all?

This is one of the best ways I've seen a comic company start off a new solo series; and it should come as no surprise Geoff Johns co-wrote it. The book lays out clearly and plainly who Booster is and what he wants, to be a hero and be admired. He comes from the future through means that aren't exactly legal or altruistic but that's not gonna stop him. This book is all you need to grasp the character; BUT if you were so inclined, reading "52" and "Infinite Crisis" would deepen your enjoyment of this book as it picks up threads from rose other two. Once again, it's not necessary to enjoy this book as it makes things nice and simple to follow. Art wise, I think this is where Dan Jurgens belongs; DRAWING characters instead of writing them. I don't care for his writing (Death of Superman and many other medicore titles) at all but as an artist he is usually serviceable. Here he keeps everything dynamic if alittle plan in panel composition compared to some of the younger guys drawing at DC. Overall, this was a fun book to read and I plan on continuing the rest of the series.
