The first DC comic book i bought was JLI nș4 (1987) and was the day Booster Gold joined the group for the first time, great issue. Hahaha i should have notice it was you because your username. But why were you banned?
I'm more familiar with the old one because I used to read the JLI of the late eighties, when i was kid, by that time i remember BlueBettle and Booster Gold were the funny couple of the comic. Great art work of Kevin Maguire and then Adam Hughes. I liked it, that BB was kind of a looser, a sort of nerd version of Batman (which is basically the same character as Nite owl from Watchmen). My son also prefers the new one because of the cartoons, it's a much more argessive character than the old one.
