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

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!

"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!

(* 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.
