 All Hail Hale

Monday, September 25, 2017

After I asked last Monday about what your Booster Gold shrines looked like, Aaron Hale got in touch with me via Facebook. His office is like a museum for Booster Gold original art!

Check out these pics of some of his framed pieces. (Click any for a larger image.)

 Someone Has to Draw It

Friday, September 22, 2017

We know that Booster Gold will be returning to the DCU this December in Action Comics #993 and #994. We know that the book will be written by Dan Jurgens. What we don't know is who will be drawing it.

The solicitations released earlier this week repeat last week's announcement that the art team on those books will be Brett Booth (Teen Titans) and Joe Prado (Justice League). However, Booth has repeatedly denied via Twitter that he is involved.

Does this mean that Prado will be carrying the load solo? Will there be a different artist altogether on the book? Who would you like to see? Let's put it to a vote!

This week's poll question: Who do you want to see drawing ACTION 993?

 What We Could Have Seen

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Sean Aitchison has written a think piece for CBR.com titled "Booster Gold Could Have Been The DCEU's Iron Man" in which he posits that, er, Booster Gold could have been the DCEU's Iron Man, by which he means that Booster would have been a good starting point to introduce audiences to the DC cinematic universe.

As a superhero who's from the future, Booster Gold's time traveler status could serve a greater purpose for the DCEU. We've already established that Booster would have made a great, low-stakes superhero to launch the DCEU franchise due to his similarities to Iron Man. However, there is something that Booster could have done for the DCEU that even Iron Man didn’t accomplish: Setting up the future, literally.

Obviously this didn't happen, and it's too late to happen now. But it sure is fun to think about.

And while we're on the subject of Booster Gold movies, you might want to check out Usama Massod's article at MoviePilot.com, "Everyone Knows The DCEU Is In Crisis — But Whatever Happened To The Standalone Booster Gold Movie We All Forgot About?" in which he discusses, er, whatever happened to the standalone Booster Gold movie that we have definitely NOT forgotten about. Short answer: no one knows.

 Keeper of the Shrine

Monday, September 18, 2017

Drake McWhorter (aka @TrailerDrake) recently posted his pop culture "shrines" on Twitter. Here's his space devoted to BFFs Booster Gold and Blue Beetle.

TrailerDrake Blue and Gold shrine

Personally, I keep all my Booster action figures and knickknacks on their own bookshelf. Actually, if I count the ones still in their original packaging, two bookshelves in two different rooms. And that's not counting the comics. The Booster-dedicated short boxes (BG volumes 1 & 2 and 52) are on a third bookshelf. Come to think of it, Booster takes up a lot of room in my house.

Do any other Booster boosters devote space in their life to Booster Gold?

 I Said I'd Be Busy But This Is Big News

Friday, September 15, 2017

I know that I said on Monday that I'd be busy this week and that "big news" would have to wait until next week.

I was wrong.

DC Comics released solicitations for December on Wednesday, and guess who's coming to Action Comics!

ACTION COMICS #994
Written by DAN JURGENS
Art by BRETT BOOTH* and JOE PRADO

"BOOSTER SHOT" part two! It's the time-hopping team-up of Superman and Booster Gold—and on their quest to verify Mr. Oz's identity, a mysterious force attempts to sabotage the journey! This time (pun!) our heroes wind up in the crosshairs of a deadly new villain—the time wraith responsible for their tumultuous journey!
On sale DECEMBER 27 • $2.99 US

(* Note that while the solicitations indicate both issues will be drawn by Brett Booth, he has denied via Twitter that he will be the artist, calling the solicitations "a mistake". Therefore, actual artist for these issues remains unknown.)

It's been a good week for Booster Gold fans. We learned on Wednesday that the true identity of Mr. Oz isn't Booster but Kal-El's father, Jor-El . (*Whew!*) And now news that our hero will be returning from obscurity to team up with Superman in a story by Dan Jurgens? Whoo-hoo!

Thanks for this early Christmas present, DC. Extra thanks to all who called this news to my attention.

You can read the original solicitation details on Newsarama.com.
