    This issue is absolutely fantastic. Its well-crafted, and I hope that Jeff Katz can maintain this level of excitement and interest after Geoff Johns departs. The artwork by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund is fantastic. Both men are very talented and highly underrated but come together very well with this issue. Even if you had trouble following 52, this series should be easy enough to follow even with all the time-traveling that will take place. DC is definitely on to something, and I think this series could be their next big hit. This is my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    Thats right: Its a first issue that is accessible for new readers while firmly rooted in continuity, and it features likeable characters for whom one can care. Read Full Review

    I loved Booster Gold #1. This issue reminded me just how incredible 52 was and just how disappointing Countdown has been in comparison. Johns does a fantastic job with this debut issue and I am totally hooked like a crack head and can't wait for the next issue. If you like getting hip deep into the mythos of the DCU then this is definitely a title for you. If you enjoyed the events of 52 then you will probably also love this title. Booster Gold has the same sense of excitement that you get over on Green Lantern and the Justice Society of America. I definitely recommend giving Booster Gold a try. Read Full Review

    But more than anything, the reason you should pick up this issue is because its fun from start to finish. Everything falls into place very nicely to produce one of the best comics DC have put out in a while (note: I havent read any of the Sinestro War issues). Read Full Review

    Im subscribing to this title, in the hopes that the series can keep up with this stunning debut. And that Johns and Jurgens stick with the title for at least 24 issues. Make that 26; half of 52 is good enough. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, it gave me a laugh when I read on Rips chalkboard, Forget about Countdown. Read Full Review

    Overall, this first issue wasnt as good as I think it could have been. However, its good enough to give it a chance to get better. Read Full Review
