Page 1, panel 1
Booster Gold declares the situation "way too weird for me," from off-panel as he stares at the painting that ate Paris, France. Fellow Justice Leaguers Animal Man and Blue Beetle are also present.
Page 1, panel 4
Booster recognizes Crazy Jane, Robotman II, and Rebis as members of the Doom Patrol when they approach him. He has worked with Robotman before, but Crazy Jane and Rebis are relatively new to the team. Booster likely recognizes them because the Justice League leases room to the Doom Patrol inside the Secret Sanctuary where Beetle stores the Bug and the JLI shuttle.
Page 3, panel 5
The pragmatic Booster admits that the Doom Patrol gives him the creeps. The Doom Patrol only rarely does interact with the more established DC Universe heroes, and their adventures tend towards the esoteric and bizarre.
Boosterrific Review: Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol stories can be confusing and indecipherable, and this issue is no exception. This Doom Patrol briefly encounters the Justice League, and the result is a hostile and unsettling disquiet akin to what fans of traditional super heroics will experience upon reading this pretty standard Doom Patrol issue.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
Average Fan Rating: (1 vote)
I actually liked Morrison's "Doom Patrol" run but this was not one of the better issues.
