    The end of the comic leads directly into the first issue of Justice League: Generation Lost, which...wasnt that good. At least not compared to this one. I hope that doesnt mean the writers will be abandoning the time traveling aspect of the book in favor of a long crossover event, because theres plenty of potential for good comedy there. In this issue they took a short scene from a 30 year old Legion comic and asked: what about the people who were in Daxam when Darkseid destroyed it who werent Daxamites? Like, those who came on vacation? If they can build a good premise from that, imagine what they could do next. Crashing a Thomas Wayne dinner party? Escaping from the cruise ship that left Oliver Queen stranded on an island? The possibilities are endless. Read Full Review

    While the "Booster Gold" title has been on my list since it relaunched, I was pleasantly surprised by this issue, and remain hopeful that this slight detour in the direction of the title might help this book gain more recognition. This is a title that I've been following for quite some, and I do not see that changing any time soon. Read Full Review

    Chris Batista's art is pretty much second only to Kevin Maguire himself, and overallI'm really thrilled to see where this book goes in coming months. Read Full Review

    As for JLI throwbacks go, I'd recommend checking out Generation Lost instead of this. It was better done. The very beginning and the last half of this sail well, but that 8 page portion in the middle I mentioned was such an eye-roller, it tasks the rest of this issue with trying to make up for its mistakes. I will say, without qualification, that Batista's work is a joy to look at, though. I'm looking forward to more old school fun next issue (with an even more personal look at BG's reaction to Maxwell Lord's return) but so far, I'm wishing Dan Jurgens had stayed on. Read Full Review
