Boosterrific Review: A creature that has the technology to travel across the universe to take possession of a planet keeps his rights to that planet written on a piece of paper? This issue contains something between an homage to the most ridiculous Silver Age stories and a pretty flimsy excuse to recycle some of the more gory special effects of the movie Aliens. Maybe this issue isn't a complete waste of time, but it certainly could have used a lot more polish of its script before it was committed to paper.
Boosterrific Rating: Tarnished.
