Page 1, panel 1
Picking up immediately where the previous issue left off, Booster Gold is on stage at the Symphonee Music Festival (in the Keystone Desert, which is presumably a desert somewhere near Keystone City) dancing to the performance of Rap-Avi #1, Mumblebee.

Page 2, panel 1
Kid Flash III introduces himself to Booster ("Mr. B. Gold") as a "huge fan." The sentiment is clearly not reciprocated, as Booster doesn't seem to recognize Kid Flash despite the two of them having appeared on panel together in at least 7 previous comic books.

Page 2, panel 3
After Kid Flash explains that the Symphonee app is a mind-control scam, Booster flees the scene "before the cameras catch all this." Gee, Booster, you're supposed to be sponsoring this festival; the least you could do is stick around and help out.

Page 9, panel 2
Flash of China, Avery Ho, is growing frustrated battling the Rap-Avis. Who can blame her? This story does not make it clear what a "Rap-Avi" actually is. They appear to be computer-generated holographic algorithms supplemented by Klarion the Witch Boy's dark magic. But if they are responsible for all the most popular music on the Symphonee music app, does that mean that none of the app's music was created by human artists?

Page 10, panel 7
PRODUCT PLACEMENT: The Fiddler is hit in the head by the "one-of-a-kind collector's cup" featuring a lid with a Booster Gold figure and the Symphonee app logo (first seen in issue #3). The blow knocks a previously hypnotized Fiddler to his senses. (This is somewhat ironic as Booster Gold does not have a reputation for bringing people to their senses. Does the cup have super powers?)

Page 14, panel 6
A social media poster going by the handle "@BoosterGoldsMomma" offers to pay for a second-hand collector's cup. And who can blame her? Those things are sweet.

Page 19, panel 11
Roundhouse surprises Kid Flash with one of the collector cups. (Is Kid Flash "BoosterGoldsMomma"?)

Page 19, panel 15
Kid Flash uses the code on the bottom of the cup ("up, down, up, down, left, left, right, y") to unlock a chibi Booster Gold avatar in his favorite fighting video game Beastly Biohazard...

Page 20, panel 1
...which appears to be otherwise populated entirely by anthropomorphic animals.

Boosterrific Review: Reading this series puts me in mind of DC's 1960s Teen Titan comics written by old men trying to sound really young and hip and failing miserably. But I enjoy those comics (sometimes ironically), so I don't necessarily consider that a negative. If nothing else, it's a new twist to see a younger generation of heroes treating Booster Gold as though he's a respectful member of the establishment.
