    Out of most of the books I would consider Booster Gold (and perhaps Blue Beetle) to be ancillary to the main event and makes the event feel actually real and not just an Elseworlds Super Smash Bros to distract people. Is it quality? In large swaths no but meatier books like Convergence Booster Gold #2 make it a lot better. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Jun 1, 2015

    My only other complaint would be the lack of any real ending to the book. There is a conclusion reached in regards to Boosters predicament, but the ending simply tells the reader to follow the story into convergence. It feels a bit cheap, especially since most of the other series managed to feel self-contained if you werent reading the main series. Its unfortunate given the strength of the rest of the book and leaves the book on a low note after all the good will it builds up. Aside from this however, Convergence: Booster Gold is one of the strongest Convergence tie ins and is a perfectly touching send-off that fans have been asking for. If youre a fan of DC and a bit of a continuity buff, you owe it to yourself to check this out. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher May 28, 2015

    Though you can read this issue whenever you want, I think Convergence: Booster Gold #2 flows better if it is read before Convergence #8. Take this issue for what it is, but don't try to read too much into it – that way lies madness. Read Full Review

    This was another odd somewhat tie-in for Booster Gold.  The crew was not involved in any scheduled fight, but the book feels more important in other ways.  In the end, the book just seemed like an excuse to get a major player involved and heading off to the Convergence finale.  A good looking and somewhat fun excuse, but also one with more than a few unacceptable errors.  In the end, I recommend it to those who have been following Booster and enjoyed last month's issue.  Everyone else should get involved at their own risk.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 1, 2015

    The impact of this issue on the larger "Convergence" tale seems to be less dynamic than the implied impact of Booster Gold's destiny on the DC Universe at large, at least as Waverider puts it in front of Booster Gold. That impact is lessened, or delayed, as Booster Gold does not appear to have an impactful role in the post-"Convergence" DC Universe. At least, not yet. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 28, 2015

    Convergence: Booster Gold isn't a bad story when it focuses on the title character and his relationship with Blue Beetle. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. Too often Dan Jurgens busies himself with tying this issue into previous Booster-centric material or setting the stage for certain events in Convergence #8. Read Full Review

    Overall, CONVERGENCE BOOSTER GOLD is fun but at times, can be a little rough for casual fans of the character that don't follow all of Booster's adventures. The story with Booster and Blue Beetle is a ton of fun and pretty emotional at times, but the secondary material with Rip and the other Booster against the Legion of Super-Heroes falls a tad flat. It's not bad, but it's really overshadowed by the Blue and Gold story. All-in-all, if you're a fan of Booster Gold, this is probably going to be some essential reading for the character's future, so you may want to pick this up. Read Full Review
