Page 8, panel 1
After vowing to get involved in the chaos last issue, a boastful Booster Gold arrives just in time to save Guy Gardner from Lobo. This is the second time that Booster has used his force field to break up a fight between these two hot-heads (previously in Justice League America #19). Unlike the last time, Lobo simply chooses to continue fighting, merely changing focus to Booster.

Page 14, panel 6
Realizing that events are out of control, Booster leaves the fight to get help.

Page 18, panel 3
Booster returns in the nick of time to save a second Justice Leaguer, this time Martian Manhunter from Despero. Joining Booster is Flash III and the assembled Conglomerate, Echo, Gypsy, Maxi-Man, Praxis, Reverb, and Vapor. Booster is the only member of the Conglomerate not wearing the official jacket. In fact, Booster hasn't been seen in the jacket since Justice League Quarterly #1.

Boosterrific Review: Bart Sears' illustration of an epic, multi-front battle between the Justice League International, Lobo, the Extremists, and Despero is a refreshingly fast-paced action bonanza. While this issue does not significantly advance the overall plot of the "Breakdowns" storyline in this issue, who cares?
