ANNOTATIONS

Image Copyright DC Comics

Page 24, panel 9
EXTRA, EXTRA: Booster Gold appears on the cover of a Time magazine owned by Jayne Payton. It is not clear if this is the same cover seen hanging in the B.G.I. offices in Booster Gold #21.

Jayne's brother, Will, better known as Starman, isn't a big fan. Will's disdain for our hero is understandable. This book was published after Millennium, during which Booster Gold's public image took a pretty severe hit when he sided with the Manhunters.

Credit to Michael Foster for bringing this appearance to our attention.
