Something must have been in the air this week as I was emailed by two different people out of the blue who were proud to show off their recent Booster Gold sketch commissions!
First up is from our old friend The Blot, whose magnificent Booster Gold Sketchbook is bulging at the seams. His latest piece is by Invincible artist Ryan Ottley:
Our second piece is shared by Cort, who picked up this sketch commission from the very prolific Leonard Kirk at last years's Fan Expo Vancouver:
Those are some good looking sketches, guys. Thanks for sharing.

Attention, Booster boosters! Remember to wish Booster Gold creator Dan Jurgens a happy birthday today. (He hides as @thedanjurgens on Twitter.)
In celebration, consider buying today's Batman Beyond #21 written by Dan Jurgens! Maybe also a copy of today's Man of Steel #5, which Jurgens had nothing to do with other than inspiring the cover with his own layouts from the now-classic 1993 Superman #75!
If we're all really, really nice to him, maybe he'll find a way to sneak Booster into Green Lanterns. (Hmm. Isn't it about time there was a gold lantern? Booster already has a ring.)

I begged The Blot for another peek at his Booster Gold sketchbook, and he finally gave in! Check out these two he picked up at last year's Comicpalooza convention in Houston:
From left to right, that's the work of David Finch and Tony Harris. (Click on either image to see a larger pic in a new window.)
You can see more of The Blot Says' Booster Gold Sketchbook on Flickr.com.
Thanks, Blot. You're a true Booster booster!

While I would have expected the announcement of Booster Gold's return to Action Comics to be the most read post of 2017, it wasn't. (That post came fourth, by the way. By 7 hits.)
Instead, the honor belongs to our "celebration" of the most important comic event occurring exactly 25 years ago October 20: the beating of Booster Gold by Doomsday!

Booster boosters will recall that it was Booster Gold who named Doomsday. Judging by how he treated our hero in return, it seems Doomsday didn't much care for it. Perhaps he would have preferred "Brother Love."
Thanks for visiting Boosterrific.com in 2017. Let's make 2018 even better.

The Blot returned with his sketchbook on March 23 to claim the second most popular Boosterrific.com post of 2017 with this sketch by Phil Hester.
You've been very generous sharing over the years, Blot. Thank you.
Come back Friday to see 2017's most popular post. (Can you guess what it is?)
