Dan Jurgens at New York Comic Con 2011

On Tuesday Vaneta Rogers asked Dan Jurgens the question of the week in her column "JURGENS Talks Fast-Moving JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL" at Newsarama.com:

Nrama: Does Booster really have a "Booster Cave?" Will we see it soon?

Jurgens: Of course, the "Booster Cave" is real! In a sense, anyway. And, yes, you will see it.

I'm already giddy with anticipation, but Jurgens is coy as usual. If that answer is still too vague for you, there's still time to make travel plans to meet Jurgens at this weekend's New York Comic Con.

Dan Jurgens' website, danjurgens.com, indicates that Jurgens will be at the convention for 2 days, October 14 and 15, but the convention website, newyorkcomiccon.com, only notes that Jurgens will be present for the "DC All Access: Justice League" panel on Saturday, October 15. Maybe Jurgens is attending on Friday as a fan.

No doubt Jurgens will talk about Booster Gold and the rest of the Justice League International as part of the "DC All Access: Justice League" panel. Jurgens will be one of many creators on the one hour panel, including Brian Azzarello, Brian Buccellato, Cliff Chiang, Yildiray Cinar, Tony Daniel, Geoff Johns, JT Krul, Jim Lee, Francis Manapul, Joe Prado, Ivan Reis, Philip Tan, and Eric Wallace.

Despite that stellar line-up, the panel is scheduled to last only one hour, from noon to 1PM. Fourteen creators on one panel for one hour? That means that each creator should get to speak for just about 3 minutes each. Choose your questions wisely, attendees.

What Did We Learn at Comic-Con?

Geeks of Doom tells us that DC finally announced the poorly-kept secret that Flashpoint #5 would be the official launch point for the DCnU. Time gets changed, and the new DC Universe spins out of it. Spoiler alert: Booster Gold fails at his job of protecting DC's existing continuity.

Major Spoilers reports that Booster Gold will be the official leader of the Justice League International, and that Batman will be an unofficial, secret team member. This would appear to make Batman the greatest hero that the United Nations has never heard of.

Bleeding Cool adds that Flashpoint Global Guardians' character Lady Godiva will be among the members of the Justice League International. However, blond Lady Godiva does not look like the woman on the cover of Justice League International #1. How many heroes will be on this team?

iFanboy tells us that the question of whether Booster Gold will know that he failed to save the time stream will be addressed in Booster Gold #47. If new Flashpoint characters are on his JLI team, I suspect he'll have a clue.

And according to Comic Book Resources, 'Jurgens said he enjoyed "doing Doomsday in a different way, and ending Doomsday in a different way."' I guess that means that this time Superman doesn't die.

EDIT 07/26/2011: After posting this, I realized that Lady Godiva is probably the same Godiva that was once a member of the Global Guardians. Oops. Sorry to doubt you, Booster. Maybe you do get the job done.

Countdown to Comic-Con 2011: Go!

The 2011 Comic-Con International is now in full swing. This afternoon's DC "Justice League" panel -- including Dan Jurgens -- is only one example of DC's many scheduled panels. Boosterrific.com wishes all the attendees the best of times.

If this duo from last year's Comic-Con is any indication, a good time will be had by all. Except, maybe, for any Martians whose favorite cookies have suddenly gone missing.

Countdown to Comic-Con 2011: 0

Many people dress as Booster Gold, but few appear as Goldstar. Fortunately there are a brave, dedicated few.

Countdown to Comic-Con 2011: 1

Booster booster Herbert Fung forwarded several pictures he took of Booster Gold at the 2011 Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, including the following:

Thinking fast, Herbert snapped this shot reproducing the solicited cover for the upcoming Booster Gold #47! All it's missing is a whole lot of lightning (which may be a good thing, as lightning is probably dangerous in an exhibit hall full of comic books).
