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.
