Buy Booster Gold

Some Comic Book Guy Went to the Pro Bowl

To reward their fans, the National Football League selected loyal fans from every team and sent them to the Pro Bowl in January. Guess who the lucky fan representing the Minnesota Vikings was?

Dan Jurgens, wife Amy, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (not in that order)
Amy Jurgens, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and the creator of Booster Gold

It's Booster Gold creator Dan Jurgens! While the article about the experience on Vikings.com does include an image of Booster Gold (from he cover of Booster Gold Vol. 2, #21), the writer doesn't seem aware of exactly how significant a role Jurgens has played in the history of DC Comics. Quote:

Jurgens is now currently working on two titles – one Batman and one Superman, whom he says he's had a longstanding affiliation with.

When talking about the career of the man who killed Superman then saved him from oblivion after the New 52 reboot, created Cyborg Superman, and co-created Doomsday, "longstanding affiliation" feels like a bit of an understatement. (And don't even get me started on how important his work on Booster Gold has been!)

Congratulations, Dan and Amy. Go Vikings!
