Time for a long Labor Day weekend. Long Labor Day weekends mean time for DragonCon. And DragonCon means time for Booster Gold cosplayers!

Hope for the Future

If you had the ability to travel through time, you'd have to use it. With great power comes great Birthday parties.

Last week's poll question: If you were Booster Gold, how would you celebrate your -430th birthday on December 29, 2012? (33 votes)

Celebrating Booster Gold

As I said last week, 2012 was not a good year for Booster Gold. When the best thing that you can say is "at least DC didn't treat him like they treated one of the most popular and best-selling characters of the past 20 years by pretending he never existed," that's not a good year.

Last week's poll question: ( votes)

Booster Gold turns the big negative 430 this Saturday. How would you celebrate if you were a time traveler who still wouldn't be born for another four hundred and thirty years?

Worst Book of the Year

Now that we're past Christmas, popular media will devote the rest of the year to retrospective lists for 2012. Booster Gold fan and comic-book blogger Erin of Exploring the Time Lab has gotten a head start with her own superlatives list. She saves her biggest gripe for last:

Worst Book of the Year: Justice League International Annual. I could have made this the worst character derailment but this comic was worse than that. The writers ignored most of the actual comic series itself which felt like a big screw you to the readers. I try not to see things like that but think about it. As someone that invested time and money on the relaunch series since #1, that enjoyed the characters then told none of that mattered. Having all of that sweep under the rug to do their own take and totally destroy the team. Not only did it feel like an insult to the fans but I can't help feeling bad for Jurgens who had his work ignored. At least Countdown to Infinite Crisis had the Ted and Booster friendship to make it special. Now Booster's back to no one liking him, being a loser that lies for no reason. Skeets is just an anti-virus, and Rip is erased with Booster. Thanks again Johns, we can't tell something's a big event without needlessly killing or derailing a character.

I couldn't agree more, Erin. Here's hoping Booster Gold and company make out better in 2013.

Another Year Nearly Gone

I suspect that the results of this poll pretty accurately represent the ratio of Boostlers to the larger Blue and Gold fan base.

Last week's poll question: What should Booster Gold fans be most thankful for from 2012? (45 votes)

What should Booster Gold fans be most thankful for from 2012?

No matter how you look at it, 2012 wasn't a very good year for Booster Gold fans. Besides the news that there might be a Booster Gold television show, there isn't anything else to crow over. So I put it to you, Booster boosters, what made you happy in 2012?
