Booster Gold #34

“Oh, boy. . . “The cover says it all, except it doesn’t. A cool Kevin Maguire cover is a good draw for readers to pick up the book and flip through. Hopefully they stick around long enough for the fun story inside.

Doom Patrol #6

Following the "Blackest Night" issues is no easy task, so Giffen, Clark, and crew decide to reflect on what was. This isn't your standard navel-gazing though. It's navel-gazing, "Doom Patrol" style.
