Page 1, panel 2
The Justice League International is seen via a "MagnetBox" television -- a pun on the American electronics brand Magnavox -- in news coverage of their confrontation with a victim of the Hypertaxis plague. A narrative box details the setting as Manitoba, Canada, but it isn't clear whether the people looking at the monitor are in Manitoba or if the JLI is in Manitoba, or both. This is Booster Gold's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: The small cast allows each featured character a chance to shine, and the art and action are excellent. Other than some ongoing confusion about whether Dawnstar's costume has any straps (and a lack of significant action for Booster Gold), an excellent issue.
Boosterrific Rating: Worth Its Weight In Gold.
