Page 4, panel 5
Booster Gold chastises Gardner for refusing to aid a team of heroes when they asked him for the Justice League's help. The heroes, Commander Steel, Creeper, Dr. Midnight, Major Victory, Manhunter III, Peacemaker, and Wildcat III, died at the hands of Eclipso in Eclipso #13. Booster had met or worked with Creeper, Dr. Midnight, Peacemaker, and Wildcat III on previous adventures.

Page 5, panel 4
Arriving late with Maxwell Lord, a tearful Fire reminds Booster that he was present at the JLA headquarters when Bruce Gordon and Mona Bennet petitioned Gardner for help in Eclipso #3. She clearly feels that the Justice League could have and should have aided the heroes against Eclipso. While Booster may have been present behind the scenes and may not have a clean conscience about the death of his fellow heroes, he certainly did not appear in Eclipso #3.

Boosterrific Review: There may be comic books with worse art, but you'd be hard pressed to find it in a book released by a major publishing house. Take note, kids: when people talk about the terrible comic book art of the 1990s, this is what they mean.

This issue is primarily concerned with addressing the fallout of the death of several minor DC Universe heroes in the previous issue. Inexplicably, few of the characters that discuss the slaughter had any significant relationship to the fallen heroes, and little significant action is taken other than a lot of anguished hand-wringing, gratuitous TNA masquerading as a dream sequence, and the inexplicable arrest of Amanda Waller. Good luck finding something to like in this issue.
