Boosterrific Review: Nothing happens in this issue to redeem the lackluster "Turbulence" storyline. Jurgens' heart doesn't seem to be in this series swan song that limps along in its mandated event crossover. Booster's participation in the "Flashpoint" event is revealed to be tangential at best, and readers would be advised to forget about it as quickly as Booster does.

Weak end to the story. Would rather have seen open story lines closed up in fantastical ways than a completely irrelevant story to a floundering crossover.

Very disappointing ending to the series, and I feel, a perfect metaphorical summation of what DC has done to the character. Goodbye, Booster.

Horrible art up until the last page. Insanely dissappointed with what happened to Alex. For all the hype I had heard about Berry being in this issue, we get to see him for all of what, 2 pages? Very lackluster ending. Only thing I actually 'liked', was the little poke Booster did at the fact he's getting a new suit, even if it's that crappy suit :/
