Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Best Team book of the New 52? Possibly.

  2. Very good team book. I look forward to Jurgens having them pair off for this book.

  3. I really like this cover, can’t really place my finger on why, though

  4. This might be my last issue of the series. Nothing is pulling me in.

  5. Bring on the fun!

  6. I think this is going to be a slow burn series. I am liking it so far. It is not up to Judd almost perfect Justice League : Lost Generation but I stick around for the first 12 issues at least.

  7. Oooh, nice cover. *checks larger image* Oooooooooor not….

    Great book though. So fun. Only thing I don’t like is Godiva.

  8. Aside from some “tell not show” dialogue here and there and a weak ending due to the revealed villain meaning nothing to me, this was great!

    Loved this for the characters.

    I hate Guy, he’s a dick.

  9. Solid book. This book had action and is doing the perfect team book thing. Section them off so that you get to see 1 on 1 character interactions. It’s early in the book, only issue #3 and this creative team is making me really like these characters. Except for Guy, they are making me dislike him. Good job.

  10. The cover to this issue was really good. I also like their logo. Booster Gold is one of the most underrated characters in all of comics, not just the DC universe. This book has great potential, and I am anticipating that with the changing of the line-up it could be even better. (get rid of Batman, Guy Gardner, Godiva….and any three other characters!)

  11. I love that Booster’s heading this team up and that Batman’s got the confidence to back him. I’m hoping that Batman becomes just a semi-regular in this book and not someone who’s used every issue. While Ive enjoyed both Fire and Godiva so far, they seem to be on this team for very similar reasons, and if thats the case we only really need one of them. Given that, I’d take Fire over Godiva any day….though if they want to harden Fire up a bit similar to her time in Checkmate, then I’d be more then happy to see them both here.

  12. Bought 1-3 on a whim and read them all together. All three sucked. Generic dialogue, boring art, and except for the horny chick with the super powered hair, this felt like it belonged on Cartoon Network after an episode of Ben10.

    • I thought the first issue was very fun, but the next two have been generic. That’s what I was afraid we were getting with Dan Jurgens writing it.

  13. Gave this issue a 5; it would have been POW for me except for Red lanterns which just edged this book out of the POW spot this week. It was a very tuff decsion for me anyway and which one gets it and the pressure was high however; some of the characters I agree just do not sit well with me. I am being very open minded and giving them all the benefit of the doubt for awhile to see if they grow on me. Especially the likes of; Godiva and Iron Skin Chinese Soldier Monster Guy With Happy Lots of Power. I am willing to sit through it since I think there always needs to be that expendable character to kill off when needed.
    Booster has and always will be one thee best characters in comics since his very beginings, bring back a little of the old Booster and for sure the old costume. The new Booster look really not liking the way the head peice and goggles look, and where in the hell is the great skeets? SKEETS!!
    The art in this series right now is also very underated, just like Red Lanterns is is very detailed and seems like the artist on these books really care. The detail on backgrounds and the characters has been stunning in certain spots including this very cool cover. I think the logo is very cool and it does fit on this cover very well especially the way the greens blend. This has not been as silly as I think what everyone thought it was going to be and the covers attitude makes perfect sense in the amount of destruction and what looks like to be the capture of some of the heroes and maybe even some loss of inoscent civilian lives as well.
    If you are not reading this and are not sure I will tell you this as well as The Red Lanterns are what comic books used to be and should still be today. If you like team books and ones that really keep you moving, this is the one for you. Great artwork, straight forward action and suspense!!

    Just sayin’,


  14. I’m not liking this like I thought I would. The characterization is good, but the plot is going nowhere. No need to pair them up and send them off like Scooby-Doo. I know that’s a team-book trope, but come on….

  15. pick of the week… for best improvement
