Boosterrific Review: This comic's weighty philosophical investigation of the nature of life, death, and time results in a surprisingly uplifting and enjoyable comic book. This is the sort of story that writer J. Michael Straczynski most excels in telling and is worth a read.

It's a great issue for the reasons our host says. Not much in the way of Booster but it offers great depth to the characters and an interesting debate on life. It also made me read the Gray Man issues of JLI again and have no appreciation of them.
