Halfway through their first arc together as the co-writers of Booster Gold and having completed several Gold Exchange interviews, Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis seem, based on my comments thread alone, to be pretty divisive among the Booster faithful. Comichron.com sales numbers seem to suggest that sales haven’t been affected one way or another by the shift in creative team and tone, but readers seem to have a strong preference, one that may or may not be exacerbated by the presence on the market of Time Masters: Vanishing Point, featuring Booster Gold and done by the title’s previous creators.
I’m hoping to put together a cross-section of reader responses, so I’d love e-mails letting me know whether you think the new direction and creative team is better, worse or no change…and comments explaining your response. I’ll also be talking to some notable Booster fans and friends of the title when I compile my results.
The e-mail is email@example.com, and feel free to give as much or as little feedback as you’d like.
