Whether you’re standing in long lines at a comic convention, driving across country on one of those wonderful family vacations, or jetting around the world closing multi-million dollar deals, you’re probably going to be bored enough to want to read something.Â DC has stepped up to the plate by releasing its list of trade paperbacks scheduled for release in May and June of 2009. This list isn’t final, and is subject to change, but what is being offered, looks pretty good to me.Â For sure on my list will the the third Starman Omnibus.
The Booster Gold title has been one of the biggest surprises in recent years. No one ever thought that Booster Gold could be developed in to a comic title that anyone would actually pine for. But with Geoff Johns writing all bets are off apparently, as Booster Gold #09 continues the mind-blowing adventures of Booster and his best friend, Blue Beetle.
Following after last monthâ€™s Booster Gold 00 issue, which was the last tie in to DCâ€™s Zero Hour storyline of 1994, Booster Gold 07 picks up where it left off. Booster and his best friend, now returned from the dead, Blue Beetle, are being attacked by Max Lord’s OMACs. However immediately you begin to get the sense that weâ€™ve entered another of the 52 universes. Things are just not right, and we see more of this as the book continues.
