Booster Gold attends the funeral for the family of Animal Man. Other heroes seen at the funeral include Martian Manhunter, Metamorpho, and Vixen. This is Booster Gold's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: This dark, emotionally draining comic book manages to perfectly describe the mood of tragic loss. While this may be a downer for the reader, it is absolutely appropriate for any comic book that features the funeral of a major supporting character.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
