Booster Gold, Vol. 1: 52 Pick-Up - Geoff Johns, Jeff Katz, Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund I really enjoyed reading Booster Gold in [b:52|160841|52, Vol. 1|Geoff Johns|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348015404s/160841.jpg|1391808], so I was happy to get to read this. Luckily, it is a fun book. Booster has been tapped to help Rip Hunter repair errors in the time stream. By the time the book has come to an end, there's been a big shift in the plot, and there are still plenty of questions left unanswered. I'd be more eager to keep reading, but I'm uneasy about the direction the story has taken. Ted Kord's death was such a major event, and sadly the most important the character has ever been. Much as I like Ted, I'm not thrilled with using timey wimey to bring him back. Special kudos goes to the issue where Rip Hunter sets Booster to try to prevent the attack that left Barbara Gordon paralyzed (brutal, but effective) and to Dan Jurgens's art all around.
