So I've been in DC for a little while, but I haven't fished around to too many of the other comics. I've stayed mainly in the Batverse with Batman, Batman and Robin and Red Robin (had Batgirl for awhile, but didn't interest me that much). I collect Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps, and I also get Supergirl. I have Batman Beyond in my pull, and will be picking up the ongoing. I plan to also get the new Superboy ongoing (since he's Tim Drake's best friend, and Tim's one of my favourite DC characters). I also read and enjoy Flash and Green Arrow, but they aren't technically mine as I get them for my friend.
I have trouble leaving these areas, because I find a lot of DC to be a little corny or dated. I understand that may be a harsh thing to say (and I'm sorry if I offended anyone), but many of the heroes and villains don't really resonate with me much.
I did, however, read a little bit about Booster Gold on the DC wikia, and he seems rather interesting. I didn't realise until now that he has an ongoing, and I thought about maybe picking it up. Only thing is, I'd like to know what other people think of him before I decide to pick up even an issue at the local comic shop. I'm trying to budget myself with comics, and I've recently had an issue with buying comics just to know what's going on (I've had to reconcile that I don't care about the X-Men books, and I don't need to spend money to figure out what's going on in the X-Verse of DC and just worry about the books I like).
As someone that has trouble leaving certain areas of DC, would you recommend Booster Gold? Is it serious, or generally goofy in nature? I can judge the art for myself when I look at it at the shop, of course, but how is the writing and story been thus far? Would it be an easy pick-up-and-read book like Supergirl was?
