New week, new attitude.
I'm now over my hatred for Justice League: Generation Lost #12. It seems clear that there is a generational divide on this issue: long-time JLA readers felt betrayed but younger fans enjoyed the story. Since the industry really needs all the new blood that it can get (and opposing the change has done nothing other than make me feel old), maybe it's time to embrace the change. Especially since Marc-Oliver Frisch's latest 6 months sales reviews of DC Comics at Comics Beat.com indicated that recent across-the-board sales were about as bad as it gets.
If letting a hack like Judd Winick make Ice a patricidal amnesiac increases sales for a series that I otherwise enjoyed, I should probably either quit reading comics or quit my bitching and get on board the bandwagon. It's a new 52-verse, and if Booster can be reborn with a new purpose, so can Ice. Maybe the change can earn a little buzz and drive some sales.
See? Like Booster, I can be a team player when I have to be.

It was revealed last week that DC Comics is the publisher with the most 2010 Eisner Award nominations, and Booster Gold fairs better than usual. Former Booster Gold writer Geoff Johns and his latest baby, Blackest Night (which includes minor appearances by Booster Gold), were both among the nominees. The Brave and the Bold #28 was nominated as the best single issue of the year, no doubt because Booster Gold appears on the DC Nation page in that issue. Listen up, artists and writers: you want to be nominated for Eisner Awards? Include Booster Gold in your work!
