Boosterrific Review: This series continues to tell great (if somewhat depressing) stories as the citizens of Earth do their best to deal with an inevitable doom. It is fitting that Booster Gold, hero of Madison Avenue, plays such a small part in the issue, as his role as celebrity shill could do little to console the world population in its doomed, darkest hours.
