ANNOTATIONS

Page 25, panel 2
Booster Gold appears among other heroes that Flash III discovers in the stomach of the Taker. The panel looks very similar to a Booster's imprisonment in an alien ship in Justice League America #68. Other heroes in the alien's stomach include Batman, Deathstroke, Demon, Green Lantern II, Guy Gardner, Nightwing, Panthra, and Wonder Woman.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: Perhaps DC should have quit while they were ahead. This issue shares all of its predecessor's flaws without any of its redeeming attributes. Clearly the only reason that this issue was published was to promote a new group of largely insipid (but extremely 1990's-styled) characters. With a run-of-the-mill story and few endearing or enduring characters, the highlight of this comic book is that it is a window into the 1990's DC Universe.
