Booster Gold 1000000 (September 2008)

Journey's End.


A great wrap-up to the Geoff Johns and Jeff Katz era of Booster Gold. Like the other issues in this series, this continues a classic storyline. This book is one of the top series in comics.

Some comments on this issue:

I liked seeing Booster get a break. A surprising return of an old character.

It was interesting to see the effect Booster has on the year 1,000,000. Peter Platinum???

How is that for for a mystery at Kord Industries? Any ideas who the intruder is?

The big surprise is the true identity of Rip Hunter! They caught me off guard with this one.

Batman. That says it all.

This one has it all.


This issue is the end of an era for Booster Gold. Writers Geoff Johns and Jeff Katz are leaving the book. The next two issues will be written by Chuck Dixon(and the previews look good). The new regular writer has not been named yet. I hope the new writer can continue the excellence of Geoff and Jeff.

Fortunately, as far as I know the art team of Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund are staying. The interesting part of this is that Dan was the artist(and writer) of the original Booster Gold series. It would not be the same if he left.

Highly recommended.
