- Booster Gold
Wednesday, September 19, 2018
DC Comics' solicitations for December don't give Booster Gold fans much to talk about. (Heroes in Crisis #4 is delayed to January, and The New Teen Titans Omnibus Volume 4 reprinting New Teen Titans #29 and #30 won't ship until May). But blogs abhor a news vacuum. Therefore, let's dig into the Boosterrific fan mailbag for a question very much related to yesterday's poll question.
On Monday, Bob dropped by to ask
Boosterrific-did you get DC all access? and if so what do you think of it? I got it and it only has 12 issues of Booster Gold's 45 issue second run. It has none of the first run. And none of Rip Hunters -Time Masters. I am curious to know your thoughts.
Hi, Bob! First of all, I have to admit that I'm not an early adopter. I'm also a cheapskate. Therefore, I like to hear from friends and critics if something is going to be worth $8 a month before I buy in to the DC Universe streaming service. I found Mike Sterling's review on ProgressiveRuin.com helpful, but I'm still waiting for a thumbs-up from a couple of my die-hard DC-fan friends before taking the plunge myself.
That said, it still might be a while before I check it out. I got the impression that the service wasn't going to give me much I hadn't already seen, and so far, it looks like I was right. Sure, I like Super-Friends and Batman TAS, but I don't feel the need to pay to watch them for the dozenth time.
The highlight for me would be access to comics I haven't read (and don't own), and I might be more interested in the service once a better selection of DC's back catalog of comics is online. I've read waaay too many comic books to need someone to "curate" my options for me. (By the way, Bob, anyone can currently buy and read Booster Gold volume 1 online at Comixology.com. Is Booster Gold not good enough for your streaming service, DC?)
In other words, I get the impression that the service isn't for me, at least not yet. But I'm willing to be patient about it. Good content isn't time-sensitive.
