Page 6, panel 1
Picking up where we last saw him in the previous issue, Booster Gold and Starfire face an army of Mygorg warriors in the plains of otherworldly Pytharia.
Page 8, panel 2
POWER DOWN: Booster long ago discovered that his technology was not any more invulnerable than the Oan Power Ring of Green Lantern or the advanced physique of Superman when challenged by magic. Though the heroes of this series, including Time Master Rip Hunter, may be formidable science heroes in their own right, they face a serious handicap against foes who proficiently cast spells, such as the selfish Sorceress Skyle.
Page 12, panel 2
With the wave of her arms, Sorceress Skyle turns Green Lantern's construct yellow and escapes. Is this a coloring error? Is Green Lantern's ring supposed to have been subverted by the color yellow? Or is this panel supposed to show the ineffectiveness of Green Lantern's ring against Skyle's sorcery?
Page 17, panel 3
Green Lantern may not approve of Booster's superficial motivations, but he's not in a very good position to lecture anyone. Lantern has hardly been a paragon of virtue in the past, with miscues ranging from drunk driving to destroying the universe. The worst things that Booster have ever done range from endangering public safety in the name of self-promotion and embezzling from the United Nations. Sure that's bad, not quite the same league as the mighty Green Lantern.

Booster Gold and Green Lantern are captured by the tentacled pet of Serhatuu.
Boosterrific Review: I do really enjoy Dan Jurgens' work. In general, I prefer action-oriented comic books and great characterization. However, on reflection, the issue seems to be the comic book equivalent of cotton candy: full of air and empty calories. Two sets of heroes fight two sets of villains in this issue without anything much being accomplished other than some enjoyable banter and flashy fight scenes. I'm fully engrossed in the series' story now, and I look forward to more. But it would be great if something actually happened in each issue other than a cliffhanger reveal at the end.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
