The Many Faces of Booster Gold

Once upon a time, comic book publishers used the corner box at the top corner of their front covers to showcase characters appearing on the pages inside. The illustrated corner box is most strongly associated with Marvel Comics, which introduced it in the early 60s and used it to great effect for decades. DC's corner boxes have traditionally been a less flashy affair, though they did adopt the practice for a few years in the 90s. As a result, Booster Gold has never had an illustrated Corner Box on any issue of either of his solo series.

When I redesigned Boosterrific.com, I made sure to correct that. Those of you who visit the new Boosterrific.com on a desktop have probably noticed that I use a rotating assortment of art for the corner box to the top left of the masthead. (Those of you who visit via mobile devices probably only see the standard "menu" icon linking to the site menu.)

Today I present you all with this link to every one of the images you might find above.Can you recognize where they all came from?

Most of them are cover images, though some were taken from interior pages and others were created as commissions. (Personally, I still feel that Extreme Justice is underrepresented, though I'm liking that most showcase that groovy high collar.) If you don't see your favorite, give a holler. I'll see what I can do.
