Okay this is going to be a little harder to break down since Giffin also helped plot with Winick for the start of JLGL. In Booster Gold this team go the extra mile to point out that Max was a good guy, which I believe is just after it was pointed out in JLGL. They do so from Boosters' POV whether it's having him have conflicting feelings when meeting Max in the past, defending him/the JLI against slanderous remarks, or just venting to Skeets. I know that an arugment could be made for this version going against Jurgens' but again Jurgens take was a very emotional Booster at Teds' funeral. I don't think he was happy with what Wonder Woman did, just wanted to understand and give voice to what he was feeling. This Booster doesn't really know how to cope, probably because he never really had a chance to before Max was killed. The Max in the alternate reality hadn't killed Ted and all he was focused on was keeping Ted and reality alive. Although I do have to question where Boosters' sudden desire to kill Max comes from since it doesn't really fit the scene nor the character. Also the many steps back in Boosters' grieving process that ignores his previous acceptance of Teds' death.
Although Max is only briefly seen in the past and most of his depth is given through Booster's POV this is a huge improvement over the dull evil versions Johns and Rucka wrote. He cared about the league and they in return cared about him. It's the conflict that drives the story and makes it fascinating. Little details that meant everything are ignored under previous writers while Giffin/DeMatteis (and Winick in JLGL) let these elements bloom. Which results in better crafted stories with real pathos. Not to say I loved everything Giffin/DeMatteis did with BG. I didn't. But when it comes to Max Lord they know above everyone else that he's not just a cardboard cutout villain.
(On yet another unrelated note I like the detail on the last panel with Rani clinging to Rip while he's talking to a hurt Booster.)
