After negotiating a movie deal, media darling Booster Gold is put to the test when he battles Blackguard in the streets of Metropolis in "The Big Fall."
This issue starts out with managing editor of Blaze Comics Skip Andrews getting frustrated over the comic business. Then he gets the idea to write a book about Booster Gold.
Meanwhile...Booster is in a athletic club working out and talking to Conrad. Conrad is trying to make a deal for a Booster Gold Movie. As they talk Booster goes from his workout to the locker room to the lobby. The whole time people say hi to him and greet him you can tell Booster has been going to this club a lot. Even the senator is there but he keeps getting Booster's name wrong. After Booster corrects the senator that his name is not Buster, he orders a Spa Shake. This is important because a mysterious man named Myron collects the glass for fingerprints. He works for a yet unknown man.
Later Booster has a literal run in with Blackguard and some 1000 cronies. Booster and skeets take quick care of them and find out that they were stealing a satellite guidance system from S.T.A.R. Labs. They go to return the device and are ambushed by Mindancer. The issue leaves Booster on the ground unable to get up.
A side story is Skip gets a hold of Boosters agent Dirk Davis about the comic book deal. Also Booster's secretary Trixie Connors tries to get in touch with the Justice League. Booster really wants to get in the league. Trixie is a.k.a. Goldstar.
There is also an appearance of Henry Ballard a.k.a. the Director.
