It felt like I was legit just reading another issue of The Flash, but it was only a matter of time before Quicksilver borrowed the speed force concept and the execution in this first issue is not bad at all.

Where the last issue took a while to find its momentum, this one starts off with all cylinders firing and didn't slow down once!
I still love the way Starro is being written, but by the end of this issue the one thing I wanted the most was a buddy-cop-style miniseries with Lobo and Beast Boy.

The Gift story arc ends here and Booster Gold will be messed up for a long time by this time traveling shenanigans, unless of course another Booster Gold writer decides to disregard this story completely.

As everyone probably expected by the end of this issue everything is hunky dory. Aside from Booster's PTSD everything seems to be back to the way it was before.

King found a way to make Booster amusing instead of annoying. Daniel's figures are so narrow that I can't figure out if it is genuinely weird or if comic-huge is just too normative. A totally serviceable issue, but it is below the bar set for two years of this Batman run.

We get what so many wanted yet still we complain. Haters are gonna hate. T-Swift said that but I’m sure Jesus said it first..... anyway... I had fun with it and think it was amazing. I hope you all look at his arc with your glass being both half full and half empty because technically.. it’s both. If you like what you heard, love talking all types of comics, and are interested in joining a comic chat group, hit me up at dispatchdcu@gmail.com or @dispatchdcu on twitter. Catch you all later!
