I assume you meant to ask Amoebas that, because of course I haven't the faintest idea either, you douchey collegey hipster. You think I'm reading that stuff? :x Let's just put it this way, this is one of Jude's favorite books.

I was on comixology at the time looking at next week's picks and just posted the embed code.

Yikes. Jude and I agree more about race and politics than we do about comics.

Booster Gold rocks! One of the best characters ever created in the DC Universe. Really. I just don't care that this has anything to do with Batman Lost in Time.

It barely has anything to do with it. I like to think of this as Earth 1.5 Booster Gold.

Well, it's really not a complete story on its own, it would make no sense to someone not at least following everything Morrison has written for the last two years in spoilers if nothing else.

I really love reading the old reviews by the Review Group. Some of the critiques are sharp; others are totally mind blowing.

I just read the Review Group's assessment of Criminal #1. It was fun to see how people responded to that book.

Anyway, you don't need to know much about DC - I haven't read any DC really since OYL. Basically, the premise is that Maxwell Lord comes back from the dead and mindwipes the entire DC Universe so that the only people who know he's back are the JLI. They chase after him but he beats them at every turn and eventually reveals in the last issue that

[spoiler]his motive has been to bring them back together, because he feels they will do the world some good[/spoiler]

But of course he's lying, but it's a very good story where a group of heroes has to face their former friend who has gone bad and the entire world think's they're crazy and now they're on the run.

It's fun and it doesn't take itself seriously.

So suck it, Spicy D!

Jude I honestly have no idea what the hell you're talking about. :?

I didn't review your last pick, therefore you shouldn't have to read this.

Not as bad as Yoni's 6/10 for Criminal.
