Looking Forward to the Past
Bleeding Cool has discovered several yet-to-be-announced upcoming DC comics reprint collections, and one of them includes a Booster Gold adventure:
The Flintstones: The Deluxe Edition(Prez) and Steve Pugh (Animal Man) turned a beloved classic cartoon into a modern graphic novel masterpiece, and the entire 12-part story is collected in this Deluxe Edition hardcover—along with Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special #1, where DC's time-traveling hero meets Fred and Barney!
Welcome to Bedrock, where Paleolithic humans head to dinner for a taste of artisanal mammoth after shopping at Neandertall & Big Men's Clothing, where Wilma shows her modern art, and where, if you take a plane, you could end up sitting on the literal tail section. It's Fred, Wilma, Pebbles, Dino, Barney, Betty and Bamm-Bamm as you've never seen them before! The Flintstones garnered significant critical acclaim for its modern take on the iconic Hanna-Barbera prime-time animated series. This darkly hilarious title casts an acerbic eye on issues like consumerism, religion, politics, and relationships that's both distinctly 21st century and uniquely the Flintstones!
The critically acclaimed creative team of Mark Russell
Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special was released waaaay back in 2017, which feels like a few stone ages ago. Reprinted once already in DC meets Hanna-Barbera collection of out-of-continuity one-shots, it'll be nice to have it reprinted with The Flintstones mini-series (where it really belongs).
The Amazon listing says the book is scheduled for release on February 8, 2022. If you plan ahead, maybe your Local Comic Shop can get you a discount when it does finally come out.
