    January 4, 2012 11:50 am I've always had a soft spot for Booster. Granted for the most part, he's usually there for comic relief, but I've always admired his charm, wit and sense of loyalty (ya know.. when he wasn't in a self-loathing phase). The idea of a hero who became a hero for the fame is a pretty fun character device and can lead to some really interesting development. My personal favorite story involving Booster was the 24-issue Justice League: Generation Lost series by Giffen & Winick.
    December 28, 2011 12:36 pm Though one thing I might suggest would be an "essential read list" sort of thing. Like, a very short list of TPB's that really help sum up who the character is. I know other sites do this (and I think maybe other articles on this very site), but if you're showcasing a character's history, I don't think it'd hurt to have a "If you'd like to get more into this character, maybe read these!" bookend.
    December 28, 2011 12:33 pm I just want to chime in and say how much I am loving these DC Histories articles. I've read each of them and have learned a hell of a lot. I didn't get into comics until maybe a year and a half ago. What started as interest in one single story has grown to become my biggest hobby, and DC books take up a large majority of that. That being said, the DCU is vast to say the least, and even with all I've read and researched, I still feel like I have yet to scratch the surface. So having these articles has been a real treat for me. You give just enough detail and insight without it getting bogged down with boring trivia. So please please please, keep it up!
