ANNOTATIONS

Page 6, panel 2
Booster Gold interrupts a discussion between Blue Beetle II and Mister Miracle. Beetle and Miracle are in agreement about their dislike of Captain Atom. In a fit of pique, Booster drops the banana that he was eating and demands to know what they know about Captain Atom that he doesn't. This sets the groundwork for the next issue's story.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: In the aftermath of the Invasion!, Captain Atom and Major Force develop an uneasy working relationship. This issue would probably be much better if it weren't for the maddeningly uneven art of Pat Broderick causing character's features to wander aimlessly across their faces.
