Page 18, panel 1
Booster Gold explains to Superman that the entire city of Paris, France (including the JLE Embassy) have disappeared into a painting. Standing around helpless are the rest of the Justice League and friends: (alphabetically) Animal Man, Blue Beetle II, Dr. Fate II, Fire, Guy Gardner, Ice, Martian Manhunter, Mister Miracle I, Phantom Lady II, and the Phantom Stranger. It is Booster's first meeting with Phantom Lady.

Page 23, panel 5
Booster performs the unenviable task of revealing to the Doom Patrol that their friend and teammate Crazy Jane was seriously injured while emerging from the painting.

Boosterrific Review: The Justice League assembles to save the world from a metaphysical horseman that gathers its powers from the mere conception of ideas. If you think this sounds more like a job for the Doom Patrol, you'd be right. Fortunately this is a Doom Patrol comic book, which will provide the expected experience for Doom Patrol fans and confuse everyone else.

Grant Morrison's run at Doom Patrol was innovative and unique but boy were there strange plots, odd villians and narrative confusion.
