My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Ugh! This character has so much promise, and is actually well written when making guest appearances in the Booster Gold books, but in his own series he is written more as a teen goof, and is an obvious attempt to appeal to a multicultural reader base. I wouldn’t mind that so much if the story was actually decent and worth reading, but this one bored me to tears. I can’t say that it encourages me to try more in the series.

Review: Booster Gold, Vol. 6: Past Imperfect

That flurry of anticipation for the next volume I felt after the wonder of the prior volume was thoroughly squashed when I started this volume, and regardless of how much I held out hope for change the story just never improved. It was as if the writer felt that he needed to take the character back to his roots, not just in the plot line, but in how he acted. The end result was a very disappointing volume that may well put me off of the series. Extremely disappointing!
