Boosterrific Review: As effectively as Booster juggles his responsibilities, writer Dan Jurgens juggles two seemingly unrelated plots into a story as layered as a Russian nesting doll. Booster's paradox, saving the past to ensure that the future is damaged, is by now familiar to readers of the series. However, Jurgens teases that Booster's actions will have direct but unforeseen consequences for our hero. This dramatic irony is appealing in a series devoted primarily to toying with the artificial history of the DC Universe, and hopefully the suspense that it generates will eventually lead to an injection new life (first life?) into the character of Michelle Carter.
