The best thing would be that they come out the same week for my pleasurable reading. Of course Hine being the writer of both would cause my head to explode. Which head? I'll let you decide.

Booster Gold #39

I cant find any other words to describe this issue other than "redundant". I've lost count of the number of times we've seen an issue where Booster remembers Ted's death and is mad about it. How many years has Beetle been dead? How many times have we seen issues like this in that time, especially in this very title?

The only reason I cant totally hate on this though is that it's as far as I know the only time Giffen and DeMatteis, the guys that started the Booster/Ted Kord friendship, did it this time and hit all the right notes. It should have been good, if this was done years ago instead of today but this is an example of a comic that was published in totally the wrong year. Ironic for a time travel series...

I know Booster Gold's a popular book on here, and I love the series too, I've got every issue. But this one totally missed the mark for me.

Story: 5
Art: 8
Overall: 6.5

I prefer Forbidden Planet for the student discount and no charge for board and plastic.
