ANNOTATIONS

Page 1, panel 1
No book featuring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle would really be complete without a reference to the man who united them: Maxwell Lord. A poster on a fence identifies the setting as "Future Site of Star Towers Luxury Condominiums" being financed by "M. Lord Enterprises."

Page 3, panel 2
Booster Gold and Blue Beetle observe the Demolition Team in action, but before they can intercede...

Page 6, panel 2
...the Justice League (Batman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman) arrives.

Page 16, panel 1
BUSTER GOLD: Green Lantern calls Booster "Buster" even though he knows better. If it seems odd that Booster would receive so little respect in this issue after proving his worth in earlier issues, that is because this issue was written and drawn 4 years earlier. See Christopher Jones blog (blog.christopherjonesart.com) for more details.

Page 20, panel 1
The final page of this issue is a advertising flier for the Booster Gold and Blue Beetle adventurer-for-hire business "1-800-SuperDudes!" (The original version of this ad as pencilled -- plus two additional pages featuring Booster Gold that did make the final publication -- can be seen on artist Christopher Jones' website, gallery.christopherjonesart.com.)
