Were you surprised by just how much fans took to the character?
JOHNS: Yeah, it’s nice. It was really nice to see because he was created post-Silver Age and I think DC’s had a little bit of a harder time introducing new characters who really catch on.
He was post-Crisis on Infinite Earths too. He was one of the first major new characters introduced after that story. He may have been the first, actually.
JOHNS: He might have, you’re right.
You know what? He’s in History of the DC Universe and he’s the last guy they talk about, so I bet he was.
JOHNS: You’re right. He wasn’t introduced in Crisis but he was introduced right after. They recently did such a good job with him [on “Justice League Unlimited”]. I think that really got a lot of new fans, too. I think between everything, Booster has gotten back in the spotlight, gotten some good time in books people were reading, and he’s earning fans.
