Cort's Vancouver Fan Expo Sketchbook

Booster booster and art collector Cort was at Vancouver Fan Expo last week, and he picked up several Boosterrific sketches that he's willing to share with us:

John Delaney draws Booster Gold for Cort Pia Guerra draws Booster Gold for Cort Steve Lieber draws Booster Gold for Cort Mike McKone draws Booster Gold for Cort

Artists and Cort's comments are, from left to right, John Delaney ("He did this all from memory"), Pia Guerra ("She enjoyed doing the collar"), Steve Lieber ("Funny and generous"), and Mike McKone ("Probably the best Booster I've seen him do!"). Click on any of the above sketches to see larger images on Imgur.com.

That's truly a great haul, Cort. Congratulations!

News From New York Comic Con

Russ Burlingame reporting for Comicbook.com from the Tom King panel at New York Comic Con on Saturday:

"Booster Gold and Ted Kord will be getting back together in Heroes in Crisis, and King says he is looking forward to that."

Blue and Gold together again? I should be all "whoo-hoo!" But considering Tom King and the context of Heroes in Crisis....

We will see what we will see.

Hitting the Bricks Again

A new LEGO DC video game is right around the corner, and Graham Hancock of brickfanatics.com scrutinized screenshots shared at UK's EGX 2018 convention last weekend to report that Booster Gold will be among the 162 identified playable characters in the game.

The game, LEGO DC Super-Villains, won't be released until October 16, but it's likely that fans will learn more about it as soon as next week's New York Comic Con. Not one but two promotional events are scheduled for the first day of the convention alone!

Sounds like it's time to start limbering up my thumbs.

This Day in History: Don't Pull My Leg

On this day in 2003, DC Comics began publication of JLA-Z, a Who's Who-inspired excuse for a pin-up anthology of Justice League characters. Booster Gold and Blue Beetle were judged so important to the history of the JLA that they appeared in the very first issue!

(It probably didn't hurt that their codenames both begin with the second letter of the alphabet.)

On a related note, BleedingCool.com reports from Fan Expo Canada that Ted Kord might be rejoining the Justice League in some capacity in the near future. The sooner the better, if you ask me.

Three Things (Comic Con 2018 Wrap Up)

Booster Gold-related pickings were slim at this year's Comic Con. What did we learn? Not much.

1. Booster Gold will not be in CW's Legends of Tomorrow season 4.

Per CBR.com: When asked at Saturday's DC's Legends of Tomorrow panel whether Booster Gold might put in an appearance, show executive producer Phil Klemmer said it was "not in the works." Seeing as how Booster hasn't been in any of the first three seasons of Legends of Tomorrow, this hardly comes as a shock.

2. Nathan Fillion isn't planning on playing Booster Gold.

Per ScreenRant.com: When asked whether he was aware that some fans want him to portray Booster Gold on screen, the Castle actor said that he likes the character but he's not campaigning for the part. Given that there has been no evidence that anyone is currently actively working on a Booster Gold movie or television project (and he won't be in Legends of Tomorrow ), this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone, either.

3. Booster Gold will be playing a central role in Heroes in Crisis.

Per: Newsarama.com: Yes, we've known about Heroes in Crisis for nearly 2 months. But DC had a very weird press conference on a boat — somebody really loved Eyes Wide Shut — to promote the mini-series where they released new colored Clay Mann art featuring our hero.

I'm still not sold on Heroes in Crisis, but I can't deny that it's looking pretty darn good.
