Page 9, panel 3
When Booster Gold drops by the New York Embassy of the Justice League to visit Blue Beetle, he and L-Ron formally meet. They had both been present during a meeting between the Justice League and the conglomerate in Justice League Quarterly #1, though between Booster's duties with the Conglomerate and L-Ron's duties as waiter, the two apparently had little time for communication.

Learning that G'Nort, Kilowog, and Martian Manhunter have gone out to dinner together, Booster decides to hang around the Embassy until they inevitably get into trouble.

FASHION ALERT: That pesky disappearing/reappearing star on Booster's back is clearly shown for the last time. Perhaps not so coincidentally, this issue is also the last for Justice League America penciller Adam Hughes, who first gave Booster the star in issue #34.
Boosterrific Review: A visit by G'Nort is an excuse for some silly character-based comedy in this "day in the life" story. Like many of the recent Justice League stories, this issue us heavy on the humor to the detriment of action, which may disappoint readers expecting standard genre-defining fisticuffs. But the sublime art of Adam Hughes provides a salve that will heal any temporary disappointment in content.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
