MEET THE PRESS: Booster Gold walks into the Brooklyn, New York offices of Superfail.com unannounced, interrupting founder and operator Thaddeus Miller's discussion with his staff about the public's reaction to a recent viral video featuring Blue Beetle III. Miller and Superfail.com are loosely modeled on Harvey Levin and his celebrity news organization, TMZ. This cameo is Booster Gold's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: I had thought that the pacing of Dan Jurgens' work in Justice League International was slow-paced, but maybe it's really a DC-wide problem. Note that this issue details Blue Beetle's meeting with the D.E.O., the introduction of his grandmother, and, well, other than a 2-page tease of next issue's events, that's it. That took 20 pages?
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
