My Favorite Pages: Justice League Europe 7

My Favorite Pages

Booster Gold is seen on just two pages of Justice League Europe #7. Therefore, I would normally skip this issue and head straight for part three of "The Teasdale Imperative" JLA/JLE crossover story. But his one page is a pretty fun one, so here you go:

Between Adam Hughes and Bart Sears, the Justice League was in some pretty good artistic hands in 1989.

My Favorite Pages: Justice League America 31

My Favorite Pages

Justice League America #31 introduces Adam Hughes as the series' new penciller, and like any human being with functioning eyes, I think his work is amazing. Which is why I can't choose just one favorite page. Here are two!

I'd say the JLI has rarely looked better.

My Favorite Pages: Mister Miracle 8

My Favorite Pages

When a whole quartet of evil androids of Professor Ivo attack Bailey, New Hampshire in Mister Miracle #8, who comes to the town's defense? That's right, it's Booster Gold!

And let me assure you that Booster's offensive goes great! Really, I mean it. Absolutely do not look at what happens on the next page.

My Favorite Pages: Mister Miracle 7

My Favorite Pages

Booster Gold appears on only one page of Justice League America #29, so let's fast forward to his much larger role in Mister Miracle #7!

The story of "Just Another Day!" focuses on an impromptu visit by Blue Beetle and Booster Gold to their teammate Mister Miracle's civilian life in Bailey, New Hampshire. Although Blue and Gold have only the best intentions, well, things never quite go the way they want.

After nearly destroying Mister Miracle's secret identity, our heroes are ambushed by the inventor of Amazo, Professor Ivo himself. Or, at least, something that looks like Ivo.

We'll see how this turns out in Mister Miracle #8 next time.

My Favorite Pages: Justice League Intl 25

My Favorite Pages

In addition to being the final issue of Justice League International volume 1 (next issue the team will be downsized to just Justice League America), Justice League International #25 is also the first book-length team-up between Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Historic!

My favorite page comes early, which is probably not a surprise to those of you who know that Ty Templeton is one of my favorite artists. He only drew the intro and outro pages of this issue (over Keith Giffen's layouts), with the rest handled by Mike McKone (also over Giffen).

But it's not just the art I love; almost every panel on page 3 has its own punchline!

Despite the early (and often) jokes, the main plot of this team-up issue is a vampire hunt that turns into an overt criticism of Western consumer culture which, in Twilight Zone style, questions who the real monsters are on plane Earth. As Booster and Beetle (and the reader) will eventually realize, it just might be our heroes.
