ANNOTATIONS

Page 6, panel 1
Booster Gold, Goldstar, and Waverider arrive on Telos. As good as it is to see them play a role in this main event, there presence here presents a chronological problem with events seen in Convergence Booster Gold #2. Both books share the same editors, so it seems someone should have been paying a little more attention. (Overall, the editing for such a large event as Convergence has been well done, but it's still disappointing to see things slipping through the cracks here at the 11th hour.)

When we last saw Waverider at the end of Convergence Booster Gold, he had sent the New 52 Booster "home" and Michelle to some mysterious place where Brainiac wouldn't find her. Why separate the three of them if they were just to be reunited moments later? Given that Booster and Goldstar play no role in this story other than to introduce themselves to the others, why are they here at all?

Page 7, panel 1
Apparently, Waverider was only interested in protecting Rip Hunter from Brainiac at the end of Convergence Booster Gold #2. Because with Michelle standing behind him, Waverider now summons Brainiac. (Though, to be fair, Booster, Michelle, and Waverider are not seen again for the rest of this issue. Maybe Waverider immediately took them all to safety.)

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: As a rule, the final book of the year's biggest event probably shouldn't have it's most important action happen off panel. The significance of this issue to the DC Multiverse cannot be overstated, but that doesn't make it a great read.
