convergenceboostergold2The Convergence series only featured two issues so seeing as we reviewed the first issue of Convergence: Booster Gold yesterday that we would do the second issue for today. In the last issue, we meet Booster Gold of one dimension who steals something for a Booster Gold of another dimension, but the second Booster is sick and his son wants to find a cure for him. They travel to Metropolis which is trapped in a dome to try and find some answers, but when they get there they are greeted by The Legion Of Super-Heroes, but even they are different and the Blue Beetle saves the older Booster Gold just in time. The second issue picks right up where it left off with our younger version of Booster Gold, Rip Hunter (older Booster’s son), Michelle (Booster’s twin sister), and Skeets confronted by the Legion. The only problem is that they are confronted by the younger versions of them and their powers are drained until they show up. Meanwhile, Older Booster is with Blue Beetle who is trying to figure out what is wrong with Booster as he is getting worse by the page. They will decide on a drastic plan to try and save him, but it may be their only hope.

conbooster2aI really enjoyed this issue of Booster Gold because it seemed to have more suspense behind it as you are wondering if they are going to save him or not. My big complaint from the first issue is explained a little more in this one, but not by much. The dynamics of the relationships are playing out a little bit more in this one and you are definitely enjoying all of it as it unfolds in front of you. One of the other parts of the story that I liked is that one of the Boosters knows what happens, but he doesn’t tell the others almost as if they have to figure it out for themselves. I know it’s a typical angle that is played out all the time, but I liked that aspect of it. I definitely liked the artwork of this comic like the last because of it’s traditional style where it’s pretty straightforward and not too flashy like comics try to get sometimes. The plot of the story is great and the artwork is great so I say give Booster a chance, you may enjoy it. To read more about it, please click here and check out my grades for this issue below:
