Booster Gold (Volume 2) #32
Written by Keith Giffen and J.M. Demateis
Art by Chris Batista
Well I am certainly glad the new writers are keeping Skeets around. I read somewhere that Giffen never uses Skeets when he writes Booster Gold and what is Booster without his faithful sidekick! Batista was a really good choice as his style is similar enough to Jurgens that the change wasn’t jarring and different enough that it isn’t imitation. This issue has Booster saving a little girl from the 30th century during the Great Darkness War (and getting her to a toilet). It was amusing but also serious and although I loved Jurgens’s run I think Giffen and Demateis have already won me over. I think they will keep the balance between fun and serious that has made this book so good over the last 32 issues. This was a great start to their run.
