ANNOTATIONS

Page 14, panel 3
In his only appearance in this issue, Booster Gold calls "Oracle" from a public telephone to seek her assistance in locating the missing Blue Beetle II. (See the concurrent The OMAC Project for more details about this plot.) Although Booster speaks to Oracle informally, practically demanding her help, this is their first on-panel meeting. Perhaps they know one another through Oracle's connection to the latest incarnation of the Justice League. Or maybe he knows Oracle through Beetle, who aided her Birds of Prey team on several occasions and had a romantic interest in Oracle's alter ego, Barbara Gordon.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: For as hard as this issue tries to tell two action-packed stories about undercover infiltration of organized crime, the issue is hijacked by recurring, overt reminders that Black Canary has serious daddy issues. While this may be interesting for fans of the Black Canary, it is probably a case where a little less would have gone a longer way.
