The biggest weasel in the DC Universe gets his own monthly series?
Oh the injustice!
While Booster Gold did redeem himself with his heroism during the Infinite Crisis and by helping save the day during the weekly series, 52, he’s still a bit of a pariah in the eyes of some of his fellow heroes.
It certainly doesn’t help that Booster’s actions are almost always about blatant self-promotion, fame and money. But when the all-new Justice League give him a one-week tryout window — to prove he’s about helping people, not just himself — he’s determined to prove his detractors wrong.
Then Rip Hunter shows up.
The time-travelling hero offers Booster an even bigger chance to do good — to save the universe over and over again — with just one hitch: he’d have to do so in the shadows and continue letting everyone think he’s a self-centred jerk.
Can Booster swallow his pride to save the world?
Geoff Johns (Green Lantern, Justice Society Of America) teams with New Line Cinema executive producer Jeff Katz (Snakes On A Plane) to pen Booster’s impressive return to monthly comics. Drawn by veteran Dan Jurgens, who happens to be Booster’s creator, this new series looks like it could be one of the main threads weaving the DCU together leading up to next year’s Final Crisis.
