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?)

Every year I take a week off and turn the blog into the Internet's version of a clip show as I count down the most read posts of the past year at Boosterrific.com.
The third most popular post last year was my rant about CBR recklessly spreading rumors from Twitter, originally posted February 13.
Before I rant a bit — it's my website, and I'll rant if I want to! — let me say that I don't want to discourage anyone from sending me anything that they think is Boosterrific, I really don't. I want your input, and I will always try to be polite and thankful for anything you send me.
But paying so much attention to a teasing tweet not because Dan Jurgens posted it on Twitter but because CBR reposted it? Really? CBR? A once-great website of comics journalism that lobotomized itself in a bid to become the BuzzFeed of comics/movie/television entertainment? At least when Megan Peters covered the tweet for ComicBook.com, she added some context! But CBR? "Hey, look! A thing!" Grr!
I know that I shouldn't be irritated. It's no one's fault but mine that I underestimated how excited Booster Gold fans would be that Dan Jurgens might actually be drawing the character again no matter what the medium or purpose. I should have immediately posted Jurgens' tweet here in the Boosterrific Blog on Wednesday. And I certainly can't expect anyone else to share my biases against CBR. For all of those oversights and failures, I apologize. I'll try to do better in the future.
(For the record, Jurgens' "teasing tweet" turned out to be a hint that he was providing the alternate cover to summer's Booster Gold/Flintstones Special.)
I can't say my opinion of CBR.com has improved much in the months since, but at least when we've had cause to talk about Dan Jurgens pencilling Booster Gold lately, it's been because Booster's finally back in action.
We'll continue the countdown on Wednesday.

"Inktober" is a month-long challenge to artists to draw one ink drawing a day for the entire month of October. The event has been around for 8 years now, and this year I've spotted a few Booster Golds.
