When Being a Completionist Sucks

It's a little early for DC comics September solicitations, but IGN is already reporting that we should expect to see Booster Gold in at least one comic this fall. Too bad he probably won't survive it.

DCEASED: A GOOD DAY TO DIE #1 (One-Shot)
Written by Tom Taylor
Art by Laura Braga, Darick Robertson and others
While the mainstays of the Justice League—Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman—battle the worldwide infection in the pages of DCEASED, a group of other heroes work to stop the impending apocalypse—no matter who they have to kill! Mr. Terrific assembles a motley group of surviving heroes including Mister Miracle, Big Barda, John Constantine, Blue Beetle and Booster Gold as they attempt to fight back against the tide of death. Can this ragtag group save the world where the Justice League has thus far failed?
On sale 9/4/19; 48 pages; $4.99

While I'm no fan of DC's super-bleak alternate universes — there has to be an endpoint to how grim 'n' gritty a comic universe can get, right? — I do have a great deal of respect for writer Tom Taylor's characterization. As a spin off of a video game, Injustice doesn't feel much like a DC story, but Taylor's characters are easily recognizable as the heroes who survived dozens of other Crises. That's considerably more than we got out of the last nine months of Heroes in Crisis.

So although I'm not eager for another zombie invasion, there's always room in my collection for more Elseworlds comics with the "real" Blue and Gold. Even if they will inevitably get their brains eaten.

And hey, at least it's only a one-shot.
