ANNOTATIONS

Image Copyright DC Comics

Page 12, panel 1
Guy Gardner, Ice, and Superman find Bloodwynd, Blue Beetle II, Booster Gold, and Fire trapped in alien sacs aboard an alien vessel.

Page 18, panel 3
Guy Gardner calls Chaq "E.T. Howell III." This is not a reference to a real person, but rather a combination of the abbreviation for Extra Terrestrial with the character of the mega-rich Thurston J. Howell III from the television show Gilligan's Island.

Page 22, panel 1
Bloodwynd, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Fire, Guy Gardner, Maxima, Superman, and the employees at Edwards Air Force Base watch Chaq's ship disappear into space. Though she is not pictured, Ice is no doubt nearby.

Page 22, panel 5
Guy Gardner is briefly in possession of an intergalacticly binding deed for the planet Earth ("Guy Gardner, owner of Earth!") before Superman uses his heat vision to incinerate it.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: A creature that has the technology to travel across the universe to take possession of a planet keeps his rights to that planet written on a piece of paper? This issue contains something between an homage to the most ridiculous Silver Age stories and a pretty flimsy excuse to recycle some of the more gory special effects of the movie Aliens. Maybe this issue isn't a complete waste of time, but it certainly could have used a lot more polish of its script before it was committed to paper.
