Page 51, panel 1
When Ice approaches Blue Beetle II and Booster Gold to see if they are interested in accompanying her on a road trip through the American Southwest, they rather cruelly laugh her off. Apparently Ice plans to travel through the Mojave Desert of southern California and Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is Booster's only appearance in this story.
Boosterrific Review: This is a heavily Conglomerate-centric issue, as the third Conglomerate faces Amazo in "Negative Feedback," and former member Praxis continues his personal quest in "The Unkindest Cut." Booster Gold appears only briefly (one panel!) in "On The Road," a buddy story featuring Ice and Dr. Light. While none of the stories are terrible, none are memorable enough to stand out against the background noise of the DC Universe for the intended audience of hardcore DC fans. In short, this is pretty much the definition of a run-of-the-mill superhero comic book anthology.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
