The Best Around

Last things first: the final episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold is scheduled to air tonight on Cartoon Network at 7:00 PM EST. Booster Gold is guaranteed to make an appearance at the end of the episode. Batman: The Brave and the Bold, you will be missed.

As for the weekly poll, Geoff Johns may have brought a lot of modern readers to Booster Gold, but the modern trend of 6-issue stories isn't even remotely the most popular option with the character's readers. Canceling popular television shows and running comic book unpopularly too long? Does DC pay any attention to its fan base?

Last week's poll question: What is your preferred length for a single comic book story? (38 votes)

What is your preferred length for a single comic book story?

Speaking of fan favorites, you probably know that you can rate each issue of Booster's 470 and counting comic book appearances here at (If you haven't done so, I highly encourage you to rate your feelings about Booster's appearances. I assure you that people are interested in your opinion.) According to the fan ratings already in the database, only 15 issues have earned perfect 5-star ratings from multiple reviewers. Narrowing those down to 5 samples from distinctly different series, I think it's about time we started figuring out which of these is the best.

[If you need your memory jogged, here are the links to the issues in question: Booster Gold, v1, #1; JLA Classified #5; Countdown to Infinite Crisis #1, Booster Gold, v2, #30; Justice League: Generation Lost #8.]
