All Hail Hale

After I asked last Monday about what your Booster Gold shrines looked like, Aaron Hale got in touch with me via Facebook. His office is like a museum for Booster Gold original art!

Check out these pics of some of his framed pieces. (Click any for a larger image.)

This Day in History: The Death of Booster Gold

From his early days as a solo hero with limited knowledge of the present to membership in the greatest comedy duo on the Justice League roster to his modern role as protector of the time stream, Booster Gold has had a varied career as a costumed crime fighter.

Few of his adventures have been as epic as the story revealed in the pages of 52, a story that included his own death.

It was on this date in 2006 that we first met the corpse of Michael Jon "Booster" Carter in 52 #15. (Don't worry. He got better.)

I loved 52. As a long-time Booster Gold fan, it was great top see him return to the forefront of the DC Universe, especially in a story so dedicated to legacy building. Booster's featured role in that story catapulted the hero to new heights of stardom, and all his fans should be thankful that our hero ever received such a platform regardless of how he's ignored by the company today.

To sum up: if you haven't read 52, you're missing out on one of the best Booster Gold comics of all time. Go read it. And if you have read it, read it again.

Trading on His Reputation

Cryptozoic Entertainment released their DC Comics Justice League trading card set months ago, and somehow I've failed to mention it here despite the fact that there is a Booster Gold card.

Cryptozoic Justice League Booster Gold trading card #61

Maybe I've failed to mention it because it features Booster's New 52 costume. But the artwork by Alejandro Germ√°nico Benit is too good to ignore. It looks great, especially when the cards are assembled into the nine-slice collages, like this one of the short-lived New 52 era Justice League International.

Booster Gold is card #61 in the base set of 63, which means you have pretty good odds of getting one if you buy a box at your Local Comic Shop or wherever fine trading cards are sold.

(I owe a thanks to, whose recent review of Batman trading cards reminded me to post this.)

A Better New 52

Back in 2011, Rachel E. Ordway reimagined the entire DC Universe as a friendlier, funner New 52. Among the redesigns were a female Blue and Gold.

New 52 Skeets Looks Like Batman

I usually save previews for Wednesdays, but I thought since we've been in a bit of a Booster Gold drought since Convergence, I'd go ahead and post a link to's preview of this week's Bat-Mite #4.

I'm sure it's not my imagination that Skeets is starting to look like a golden, robotic Batman. Though, to be fair, this is a "Batman Family" title. Loosely.

Bat-Mite #4 will be released this Wednesday.
