Page 1, panel 1
Booster Gold emerges from the flaming aftermath of an assault on the United Nations Building, as seen in the previous issue. He is holding the unconscious body of his teammate, Fire.

Page 2, panel 1
Guy Gardner has also survived the bombing relatively uninjured, and is already evacuating injured civilians. Meanwhile, several "energy creatures" have appeared and seem content on spreading mayhem.

Page 4, panel 4
Batman, who was not among the heroes at the public unveiling of the JLI as seen last issue, joins the survivors with a weakened Godiva. When Batman comments on "a miracle" that saved Godiva from the blast, is he being sincere, or skeptical of Godiva and her savior, August General in Iron?

Page 5, panel 4
Booster Gold finds Vixen limp and unconscious. Batman is concerned that she may have a spinal injury. Vixen plays no role in the action in this issue, which is normal for her. At least now she has an excuse. (Sorry, Vixen fans, but you have to admit that after 7 issues, she hasn't exactly played a big part in this series yet.)

Page 7, panel 5
POWER UP: Ice is the next injured Leaguer found. She complains about her legs, and Booster creates a force bubble to carry her to safety. Booster is able to maintain a force bubble around himself as well, thereby demonstrating far more control over the shape of his force field than ever before.

Page 8, panel 3
FASHION ALERT: In this panel, the "W" is missing from Booster's neckline. Also, Nowhere in this book is there any gold on Booster's cowl as shown in Jim Lee's template and on this issue's cover. Are these art errors the fault of the penciller, inker, colorist? One of the four editors credited on this issue must know!

Page 12, panel 5
Naturally, after the traumatic events following the bombing, Booster Gold reaches out to his family and calls Skeets. For the second time in this series, Skeets is heard but not seen.

Page 13, panel 1
Booster Gold claims to have "100,000+" Facespace followers. "Facespace" is obviously a play on the two most popular social networking websites of the past decade, Facebook and MySpace. For a bit of comparison, at the time of this issue's release, DC Comics had 544,000+ followers on Facebook (and Boosterrific had 14).

Page 14, panel 1

Page 15, panel 5

Page 16, panel 2
Following the disastrous events of the recent issues, Chairman Bao of the United Nations disbands the Justice League International.

Page 18, panel 3
POWER DOWN: Booster is wallowing in his frustration and self-pity when he is attacked by Lightweaver. The art in the panel does note make it clear whether Lightweaver's energy construct cuts through Booster Gold's force field or whether Booster intentionally lowers his field in order to shoot his Booster Shots at the construct.

Boosterrific Review: It's hard to believe anything that happens in this issue. DC Publisher Dan DiDio has said that death is a permanent state in the New 52. If that's true, the line-up of the JLI is about to change drastically. And it's only issue 7! This is a dramatic and exciting start to the second story arc of the series.

I....I did NOT expect ANY of this. I feel like I need to find a dark hole to wallow in. (As a note, I'm still 'new' to comics, so death in them still shocks me). Having seen all the Batwing related pictures in the next issue covers, I had assumed it was Vixen biting the dust, not...not...*sniffle*. I found it very shocking and had to take breaks just to let it sink in. Gotta say, Jurgens knows how to write.
