So after a long work day I finally got to get my books. It was a huge week with lots to read. I did get my hands on Booster Gold number 2 today and the more I read it the more it feels like Quantum Leap. While Booster is no Sam Beckett, he is still the leaper of the book. Describing this book make me think of this:
“Booster finds himself trapped in the time stream, facing a life that was not his choice and driven by an unknown force and Rip Hunter to change history for the better. His only companion on this journey is Skeets, a robot encylpedia from his own time, who accoupanies from mission to mission. And so Booster finds himself leaping from time to time, striving to put right what went wrong with the time stream and hoping each time that his next leap will be the the chance to save Ted Kord.”
Booster just fits the role, with Skeets by his side as his Al and Rip Hunter his Gooshie. I think this book has some great potential. With a trip to the Old West to see Jonah Hex in issue 3 and what looks to be an adventure with the Flashes in issue 4 this book could be the breakout book for DC in 2007.
