    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough May 1, 2015

    Likewise, the art is very pleasing to the eye and carries with it a charming DC house art style from the pre-flashpoint era, however its not really something thatll get you overly excited. Its a very colourful style like feels traditionally iconic and like I said feels very like DC's classic art style. Because of this we get an issue that feels very “classic DC” although does nothing new or innovative. Like the writing, there's nothing inherently wrong with that and in fact I really enjoyed the art because of the classic style, it fit the story they wanted to tell and was a clever choice.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 30, 2015

    This is a good Convergence issue that doesn't feel like a Convergence issue.  Booster Gold fans will enjoy seeing their favorite character's story lines get tied up, but newer readers may find this issue hard to jump into to.  The art by Alvaro Martinez is strong and all-in-all, I recommend this to those in the know or willing to do a little homework.

    DC Comics News - Max Eber May 1, 2015

    This is fun, Skeets is a gold mine, the Booster dying thing is somewhat melodramatic, but ultimately a pretty rewarding read which handles the overlap of characters much better than some other issues. It just "feels" more complete. I'd say this is definitely one of the better Convergence issues due to it's importance in a greater narrative outside of the event. We're not sure what the future means for the rest of all of these different time plucked cities and heroes, in many cases it's all rather hand waive-y, but this clues into something much larger and that's interesting. While Shazam andQuestion are thus far is the best of all the Convergence issues due to their teams and art; Booster Gold is nothing to shrug off. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Apr 29, 2015

    Some of the best issues during the Convergence event stand on their own because they tell their own stories in this world without letting the overall event take control of the book, and that's exactly the case with this issue. This is a really fun story made for Booster Gold fans. Sure, there's moments where some readers may be a little confused, but what this issue does really well is take the reader on a journey with some characters that may not fit extremely well into this whole event. Check this issue out for sure if you're a fan. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Apr 30, 2015

    This issue is full of interesting world-building moments and bits of characterization for our new Booster that make it worth a read. It's not perfect though, as there are more than a few instances of too-wordy dialogue and convoluted exposition. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Tim Stacey May 1, 2015

    The conclusion is perhaps the most exciting nod to best parts of Booster's cannon, setting up a hopefully exciting and action-heavy issue to make up for the albeit necessary — groundwork laid in this one. The premise of this miniseries shows faith in the readership's knowledge and is further notable simply for focusing on a character that could have been brushed aside in light of his knack for skewing continuity.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 9, 2015

    The structure of the story, not centered around an entire year without powers as so many of the Convergence tie-ins have been, is a nice change but the comic does loose points for blatantly refusing to give us a recognizable pre-New 52 Booster in all his glory. On the plus side Booster's jumping willy-nilly gets the New 52 version beat up by the Legion of Super-Heroes and reunites the other Booster with an old friend. For fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 30, 2015

    "Convergence: Booster Gold" #1 is going to delight a small handful of readers who have been waiting for this moment for quite a while now. For everyone else, though, it's just a completely average book. It's not bad, but it could have been a great deal more engrossing, too. Read Full Review
