Page 21, panel 1
Booster Gold sings karaoke in a Los Angeles bar. He is singing the same song he was singing the first time we saw him here, in Harley Quinn #70. He's wearing the same outfit, too.
Page 21, panel 4
After Booster loses his enthusiasm for the song, Harley Quinn arrives to finish it for him, closing the song with the chorus, "I love you" (sung in her traditional Brooklyn accent).
Page 22, panel 1
To prove she means what she has sung, Harley gives Booster a big, romantic kiss.
Boosterrific Review: Sami Basri's art is a delight as always, but I find I don't care for the plot or characterizations. (As I've said many times, I just don't care for Harley Quinn, and I certainly don't understand her sudden new "empathy" power that appears just in time to get her out of a tight spot. It feels like a cheat.) I did mention that the art is great, right?
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
