ANNOTATIONS

Page 26, panel 2
Blue Beetle II, Booster Gold, and Guy Gardner aid a Rocket Red (likely their old comrade Dimitri Pushikin, aka Rocket Red #4) in battling a humanoid Imperiex Probe in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Krasnoyarsk lies on the Trans-Siberian Railway at the center of the Asian continent, which is presumably why Imperiex has chosen to attack this stagnating Siberian city (at according to Dr. Will Magnus). Guy Gardner is apparently slain by the probe, driving Booster into a fighting frenzy. This is Booster's only appearance in this issue.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: The Justice League fights a losing battle against the anthropomorphic personification of the fundamental physical process of entropy. This book is only slightly more entertaining than the preceding sentence, as it is not-so-secretly an unnecessary merchandising tie-in filler story to a company-wide crossover event. The upside to this issue is the solid and satisfying art of Ron Garney (even if the mystery of how the Flash could be running through space remains unexplained). This issue will primarily appeal to fanatical JLA and Superman completists who will easily forgive the weak story.
