Page 11, panel 5
FASHION ALERT: As noted by Eyz of the website G33k Life: "During the Last Laugh event, Wonder Woman was having her own mini-event with the sorceress Circe turning every male into hybrid monsters and animals and trapping New York City under a magical dome. Booster was changed into a pig."
Oddly, pig-Booster has brown hair and looks to be wearing his Mark X armor, destroyed some years earlier. Circe's magic must be powerful, indeed.
This is Booster Gold's only appearance in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: Oh, my, there are a lot of obscure DC Universe characters in this book; it's like a one issue Crisis. Add in the fact that the issue serves as part denouement for Our Worlds at War and part introduction to Joker: Last Laugh and you begin to see the problem. By trying to do too much, the issue fails at doing anything significant.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
