ANNOTATIONS

Page 1, panel 2
HIS STORY: While on monitor duty at the Justice League Headquarters, Booster Gold has a flashback to his arrest on gambling charges in the year 2462. Visible are his mother and twin sister, Michelle. While this instance is clearly a nightmarish memory for Booster Gold, it does add to the origin of Booster Gold if only to illustrate that the arresting officers did indeed inform Booster of his rights. This is the only view of Booster's origin story to date to clearly indicate such.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: For the second consecutive issue in this series, Booster Gold appears in half of the stories in this anthology issue. Of the stories without Booster, Flash is featured in the exceptional "Half an Inch," and Fire and Ice team-up in the goofy and poorly paced "Contested Friendship." Booster is the motivator in "Time and Chance," the issue's lead story. While Mark Waid's story is primarily concerned with building on the gambling angle of Booster's back-story, it is clumsy in execution with particularly weak characterization and art. If "Time and Chance" is an ungainly disappointment, "When Titans Date" is a sublime character piece played for humor. Booster and friends spy on the love life of teammate Blue Beetle, and knee-slapping hilarity ensues. This issue may be a mixed bag, but of quality, but odds are that there is something for everyone to like in this comic.
