New Release: Blue Beetle 2

As you can see from the preview at, Booster Gold and his Justice League International pals are definitely in this week's Blue Beetle #2 to support their oft-injured friend, Ted Kord.

Uh Oh Spaghettios

It appears there was some data loss on the host server, and I've lost everything since Tuesday morning. Which, thankfully isn't much, as I haven't even gotten around to adding Action Comics #1057 to the database yet. So maybe it's a good thing that it's been a slow month for Booster Gold.

[For future reference, the lost post was a link to a custom Super Powers Collection-styled Booster Gold action figure by SuperPoweredCustoms at]

Here in the wee hours of Friday morning, I'm still finding a few glitches in the web hosting services. I'm not sure what all this means exactly (hardware failure? user error? malicious action?), but rather than risk losing another post, I'm just going to backup the database again and call it a week. See you Monday, I hope!

Fall Housekeeping

If you pay any attention to the statistics on the homepage, you might have noticed that last last week, the Boosterrific Database registered the 1,000th comic book to include Booster Gold. In fact, it now says 1,001.

However, that's not because Booster has appeared in anything new. It's merely because I finally got around to adding a few reprint collections with very minor Booster Gold appearances. Specifically, those are 2009's Justice League America, Special and 2013's Necessary Evil: The Villains of the DC Universe, both with appearances so small I hesitate to call them even cameos.

I'll be adding another reprint collection later this week, when DC vs. Vampires: All-Out War Part 2 comes out, and another next week for DCEASED: The Deluxe Edition. If anyone spots Booster in any other books in the near future (or ever), let me know.

UPDATE: Booster Gold makes a one-panel cameo appearance in this week's Action Comics #1057!

My Favorite Pages: Justice League Intl 14

My Favorite Pages

The art of Justice League International #14 almost feels like it was a rush job, and perhaps it was. Regular series penciller and master of facial expressions Kevin Maguire took (or was given) a vacation, and Steve Leialoha's very loose style is a poor substitute for this issue that heavily features character moments. The layouts, as usual, are by Keith Giffen, so part of the problem here could be that Leialoha wasn't a great match for Giffen's distinctive style of closeups. (It gets a little better in the next issue, as we'll soon see.)

Which is not to say that JLI #14 isn't worth our time. For one thing, this is the issue that sees Green Flame and Ice Maiden officially join the team. (They'll not become Fire and Ice until issue #19.)

For another, there's football!

If there's anything better than superheroes and football, I don't know what it is.

All I Want for Christmas

Tony wrote in to alert me that Booster Gold has just appeared in "Texts From Superheroes." I didn't know what that was, but it is apparently a parody website ( And yeah, that's where you'll find Booster Gold this week. And maybe the only place for weeks to come.

DC released their December 2023 solicitations last week; you can read them at If you do, you won't find any sign of Booster Gold.

This marks a whole year since there's been any advance sign of an in-story Booster Gold comic appearance. That's a long time.

To be fair, just because Booster isn't seen in solicitations doesn't mean that he won't appear in any comics. For example, he's made unexpected 2023 cameo appearances in Superman: The Space Age, DC's Legion of Bloom, and Harley Quinn, among others.

I'm no big fan of surprises — I like to know in advance where I'm going to be spending my money — but surprise Booster is better than no Booster.
