Page 6, panel 4
Booster Gold appears in flashback as Red Robin narrates his recent past, including his awareness of the recent search for a time-displaced Bruce Wayne. Since this flashback is from the point of view of Red Robin, it is clear that Booster has met Red Robin sometime off panel. Booster had previously met Tim Drake in his guise as the third Robin, but this is the first clear indication that the two have worked together since Drake has adopted the Red Robin persona following the apparent death of Bruce Wayne. This is Booster's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: This issue includes a few too many comic book cliches. There is an old foe out for misdirected vengeance, one villain disguised as another, a bomb threatening an innocent victim as a getaway plan, and even an awkwardly shoe-horned in love interest. Fans of the character won't have much to complain about, but there isn't a lot here to entice the uninitiated.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
Average Fan Rating: (1 vote)
to be fair, the love interest is as a result of a previous story arc and is less shoe horned if you are up to date on the series, but this was a slower recap issue, and didn't advance much in the storyline. if you are a Tim Drake fan, you are probably already reading this, otherwise, it isn't terrible, but not necessary to read. in other words, its passable, that said, if you want to jump onto this series, check out the first story arc, its way better.
