Boosterrific Review: I did not enjoy this series much at all until I went back and read its individual plot threads (Rip Hunter, Booster Gold, Supernova) in chronological order rather than publishing order. What initially appeared to me to be a jumbled mass of anti-complementary tales became far, far more satisfying. Yes, this series leaves more questions than it answers as it leaves one confusing time-travel mess (Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne) and prepares for another (Flashpoint). (Why was Professor Zoom even in this series? Or for that matter the Time Stealers, or Black Beetle? Will there be another story filling in the gaps in what happened in this issue?) But in the end, I have to conclude that the rough journey through the previous six issues was ultimate worth the trip.
