If you had read Time Masters, I'm sure you would not have recommended it. :P

Sorry to read that you're busier than a cat covering shit. Hope things slow down for you soon and that you return to your regular reviewing duties.

Yeah, fourthy, there's less comics activity here all the time as people switch to trades & monthly delivery.

Time Masters #1

Just tell the story in the book. A whole story. Everything is broken down into parts now, frankly it works better in a 2 hour movie than a comic book miniseries where you either are or aren't paying $3-$4 per installment. This comic tells the other half of Grant Morrison's RoBW miniseries, unless you're a Booster Gold reader in which case you might choose to view it as a continuation of something there I guess. That's actually one of the big flaws of this book. I would rather they had told this as a back-up or co-feature in RoBW but then I quit reading that already. Why? I am bored with characters "randomly" bouncing through time. It got old about 2 issues into Cap Reborn. But if it's for you, looks like you're in luck, as Rip Hunter is set to pointlessly bounce through a bunch of obscure DC limboland properties they don't want to lose the rights to.

The art is technically competent but doesn't always tell the story in a clear manner--after the panel where Supernova is shoving Per Degaton up against a wall, then the other villain says "hey let's get out of here" and in the next panel Per Degaton is across the room standing next to him. It's bad comic book shorthand, and if you ask me why I should care I will answer that's a question I asked myself a lot while reading this.

Time Masters: Vanishing Point #1
A Live Blog Review

I will review this comic in real time as I read it, stream of consciousness style. Here we go.

Ooh, pedophilia on page one. Is that Booster Gold's dad? Explains a lot.

"Where are we daddy?" "Someplace fun."

Young Booster has replaced his traumatic memories with this fantasy land of dinosaurs and metaphors. When viewed from this perspective, this comic is actually pretty deep.

"He's so much BIGGER than I expected."

Oh that's Rip Hunter? Is Booster Gold his dad? WTF DC?

DC heroes want to cure smallpox. How many times have mainstream DC heroes traveled to the past? I have to imagine Superman has probably been in thousands of time travel stories over the years. So after all that time, he still thinks he can cure smallpox and not fuck up the timeline?

Hey it's that 90s Dr. Strange! What's he doing here?

Morrison may be a wackjob, and his comics may be needlessly strange and annoying, but at least he fools the reader into thinking Bruce Wayne being lost in time makes some kind of sense. Jurgens is no Morrison, and he exposes this concept for the stupidity it is.

Despero is a really stupid looking character.

Booster Gold's sister has a really wide vaginal area. She must date black men.

Dr. Strange to save the day!

A time phone? A "boost from Booster"? Ugh.

And we end on a cliffhanger - Conan the Barbarian.

3/10 The art was ok.
