The inside cover of this book publishes a letter from Robert Shaw, (Mill Valley, CA) who astutely points out that Booster Gold's weight as given in Who's Who Update '87 does not match the weight listed on the cover to Booster Gold #6. The editors dismiss this discrepancy with a flippant, "Does your weight remain constant?" Zing!

Page 18
Booster Gold is included in the biographical entry for the Justice League. The entry, summarizing the entire history of the Justice League, rather incorrectly includes the Creeper as a contemporary teammate of Booster Gold on the nascent JLI. Also incongruous is the illustration which mixes members of the Detroit-era Justice League with members of the International-era League, including Steel and Vibe, both of whom were slain before Booster Gold joined the League.
