Boosterrific Review: As effectively as Booster juggles his responsibilities, writer Dan Jurgens juggles two seemingly unrelated plots into a story as layered as a Russian nesting doll. Booster's paradox, saving the past to ensure that the future is damaged, is by now familiar to readers of the series. However, Jurgens teases that Booster's actions will have direct but unforeseen consequences for our hero. This dramatic irony is appealing in a series devoted primarily to toying with the artificial history of the DC Universe, and hopefully the suspense that it generates will eventually lead to an injection new life (first life?) into the character of Michelle Carter.

The story served it's purpose. I was entertained and interested to find out what happens next. The Blue Beetle story was more compressed than usual I thought. Loved the art, as always.
Interesting but somewhat slow. It was fun to see Booster against the Royal Flush gang and the press event after. Michelle...the less said the better. They brought her into Booster's time and found she had no personality or purpose. Fine so they kill her off. They then bring her back and not much more luck. I hope they make a dramatic revelation about the character. The Project Slipstream line holds some potential. Nice to see Booster with Skeets again as opposed to splitting them up. A side note. Hey only two Blue Beetle cofeatures left till they pull it. I hope that's Ted Kord in the last panel but I think its Peacemaker.
