- With this volume, Chuck Dixon and Dan Jurgens take the reigns from Geoff Johns.
- It’s a smooth transition that maintains a consistent tone and voice—given that Jurgens created the character, that makes sense.
- My favorite part of the trade is Dixon’s two-issue story that, like Back to the Future, sees Booster visiting and revisiting the same night to set things right without letting himself notice.
- Near the end of the arc, Michelle gets the opportunity to step out of her brother’s shadow as a character and have some autonomy, and I really enjoyed that moment as well.
- Jugens, Rapmund, and Hi-Fi’s art looks great; having Booster Gold’s creator on the book’s pencils is always a perfect fit.
Despite the creative team shift, I’d still recommend going back to the beginning of Johns’s run, since this arc builds on it.
