@fallschirmjager: I started getting to know Booster as part of the 52 event so you could start there ... actually Future's End reminds me a bit of that crossover with the backup characters taking the lead. After that, your best bet is Johns' run (http://www.amazon.com/Booster-Gold-Pickup-Geoff-Johns/dp/1845769155/ref=sr_1_14?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1406511067&sr=1-14&keywords=Booster+Gold) and then (http://www.amazon.com/Booster-Gold-Blue-SC/dp/1401220142/ref=sr_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1406511067&sr=1-11&keywords=Booster+Gold). Jurgens' run was good, but I didn't love Giffen's as much. Hope that helps.
Just got around to this issue last night and I completely agree with @inferiorego but at the same time I am close to dropping this main title from my sub list for the first time since I started reading comics in 2006. I now realize that I haven't liked any of the main events pushing this title after the first arc -- from Trinity War to Thrones of Atlantis to Forever Evil and I'm just waiting for the potential of the series to get good.
I liked how this book started, but I am not so much into this storyline. At times, I can't follow who the characters are by looking at them. I had higher hopes for this book, but it's about time that I drop my sub.
I disagree completely. Yes, it is written with humor, but it can also be pretty dark. As a non-powered individual, it shows how Clint lives when he's not out with the Avengers and how he struggles to pay the bills or gets mixed up with his womanizing ways. I wasn't sure I would like it either, but the great art and different take has made me a big fan. Later on in the series, it starts to alternate issues between a story about Kate Bishop living in Los Angeles and Clint back at home. What other series are you reading? That might help me help you decide if you'll like it. For a similar feel, but more serious so far, the new Black Widow might work as well.
