    There artwork is fine " in fact, this is some of Leonardi's better work with these kinds of high-power characters as opposed to the street-level guys, reminding me of his days way back on Spider-Man 2099. It's just a shame that Jurgens and Rapmund couldn't cross the finish line alone, and I think it'll make this story a bit more disjointed when read in collected form. Still, it's a good issue, and it's entirely possible that the end gave us our first real glimpse (and I do mean glimpse) of the New DC Universe, which makes it interesting in and of itself.

    It's a shame, because the character has great potential - but it hasn't been realized yet. Read Full Review

    The art by both Leonardi and Jurgens is competent and up to the task of telling the story but neither one really shines. The two art styles also don't mesh together very well so the transition between them is rather jarring to the eye. Read Full Review

    Booster Gold #47 isn't a terrible book. Not by a long shot. But it definitely could have benefited from focusing more on Booster and his supporting cast then being a throwaway Flashpoint tie-in. This series, in general, defied the odds and made it 47 issues focuses on a DCU C-lister (sorry, Booster). It deserved a little more than this as its swan song. Read Full Review

    Set to play a prominent role in "Justice League International" in "The New 52," "Booster Gold" leaves us with a nice set of fun, light-hearted, all-ages appropriate stories. I hope DC gives Jurgens another shot in their new world order, if even for a miniseries. Read Full Review
