Wait A Second…

O.k. so we’ve known for a little more than a month now that Booster Gold was going to get his own series again. Now that 52 is over we know what it is going to be about. Booster is going to have to travel through time and realities in order to set things right, to make sure things that are supposed to happen do happen. All the while he has to pretend that he is an idiot. So let’s see, a doofus jumping around time while playing even dumber. Sounds like something else to me…

That’s right. Booster Gold has become the Scott Bakula of the DCU and I couldn’t be more excited. I freaking loved Quantum Leap, the premise allowed for just about anything to happen. Maybe Booster will accidentally wind up as a chimpanzee or become a pregnant woman and have to give birth (both which were Leap storylines.) It’ll be hysterical. Even more hysterical is that one of the elements of the show, Al and Ziggy, is present in the new comic, just reversed. This time the human, Rip Hunter, is making the missions and the robot, Skeets, is the aid. Fingers crossed that just once in the comic, somewhere, Skeets says, “Rip says there is a 33% that you’re here to win the boxing match prize money and save the church.”

You know what would be the best? If on the first page of every issue, Booster looked around, realized he was in trouble and then said, "Whoa boy."

I was gonna make the joke about Booster saying "Oh boy", but I've been beaten to the punch.

The series sounds like a lot of fun, and it's already been said that we'll get a team up with Jonah Hex and Sinestro when he was still a Green Lantern.
