Curious what enduring friendship looks like? Look no further than DC Cybernetic Summer #1, "Boys of Summer by Heath Corson, Scott Koblish, et al.
Blue and Gold Now:
Unapologetically silly and sincere, this is my favorite kind of super hero comic story. The way comics are packaged and sold these days, it could only appear in one of DC's seasonal anthology books, so a hearty thanks to DC Cybernetic Summer for making the space for it.
If you don't have your own yet, inquire at your Local Comic Shop. This comic is 100% Boosterrific.

"Is Harley Quinn The Mother of Booster Gold's Son?"
That's the question that Russ Burlingame asks and tries to answer in an article this week on ComicBook.com. As he puts it:
That is, an older, future version of Booster Gold once revealed that he has a son. In fact, his son is Rip Hunter who, because of the magic of time-travel, is one of Booster's mentors in the whole Time Masters business. So, as with any woman who enters into a relationship with Booster, we have to ask: does this mean Harley could be Rip Hunter's mom?
Essentially, Burlingame is tugging at the dangling plot thread first teased in Time Masters: Vanishing Point, a mini-series published 10 years ago. The history of the DC universe has been rebooted at least three times since then. And Harley Quinn has always played by its own continuity rules anyway. Why does that decade-old, unanswered thread still itch?
Like the final fate of Amelia Earhart or the purpose behind the heads on Easter Island, it's the unanswered mysteries that continue to hold our attention even when the truth probably doesn't really matter anymore.

Released yesterday to a Local Comic Shop near you: DC Cybernetic Summer #1, including Booster Gold & Blue Beetle [and Skeets] in "The Boys of Summer" by Heath Corson, Scott Koblish, Hi-Fi, and Carlos M. Mangual.
CBR.com has the issue preview, but with Skeets on the cover, I'm sure you don't need it. (Which is good, because neither Booster nor Skeets is actually in the preview. Just Batman. Because Batman = DC Comics. I mean, who else would they let drive that Metal Men Jeep? Superman doesn't even own a car. Speaking of which, who formed the tires? It must be that newest Metal Man: Steel-Belted Radials.)
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

I'm a little late to post this, as the edition now seems to be entirely sold out, but that's no reason not to marvel that such a Boosterrific poster as this exists in the world.
That's the Warner Bros officially licensed Justice League Unlimited poster by Dave Perillo released via Grey Matter Art back in May. There were two editions, the normal one you see above and a foil edition. The Blot has pictures of both on Twitter.com.
Sorry about that, everybody. I'll try to pay better attention ion the future.

Nothing about 2020 is normal, and that includes the annual Comic-Con International convention being held this weekend. The in-person event was canceled for public health reasons, but it is now being held in "the comfort of your own home" courtesy of the magic of the Internet. (I hope you have a big couch.)
In honor of the convention's Masquerade cosplay contest, being held virtually tonight on comicconathome.tumblr.com, I present Kevin Bo...oster Gold, aka BoosterGoldNY, who was recently spotlighted in a Q&A at CriticalBlast.com.
I recommend that you check out his Instagram, where you'll see him posing with Dan Jurgens among many other great pictures. I think they're pretty Boosterrific.
There have been 2265 blog entries since January 2010.
