Not a stinker in the bunch! (I could probably use that last one as one of my corner box images.) You can see all these and more at

Stay safe, Cort. No matter what else happens in 2020, the sketchbook must survive!

Cort Sketchbook Strikes Back

It seems Covid-19 has stopped the whole world cold, but not Cort Carpenter. He is making up for the canceled comics conventions by commissioning copious creators to craft compositions of the one and only Corporate Crusader, Booster Gold!

(Sorry, I might be going stir crazy. Just enjoy the art.)

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.)

The Blot's Booster Gold Sketchbook Returns

Thrice before we've seen The Blot's Booster Gold sketchbook commissions. (Here, here, and here.) Now that convention season has returned, so has The Blot!

Aaron Lopresti draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says Neal Adams draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says

From left to right, those sketches are by Aaron Lopresti and Neal Adams (!) commissioned at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, his past weekend. Click on the images to see The Blot's larger pics, or visit the whole sketchbook in much larger detail at The Blot Says' Flickr page. While you're out and about, also consider dropping by The Blot's blog,

Footnote: via Twitter, The Blot paraphrased Neal Adams as saying it was only the third time he'd drawn Booster Gold. Adams hasn't ever drawn Booster in a DC comic so far as I am aware, so where are those other Neal Adams Booster Gold sketches, hmm?

Separated at Birth?

Frequent site contributor Morgenstern recently drew my attention to the solicited cover for Ray #3 appearing on DC's The Source blog. Morgenstern said, "to me it looked exactly like the JLI #2 cover."

The cover on the left was drawn by Aaron Lopresti and the cover on the right was drawn by Jamal Igle. It sure looks like Morgenstern has a point.

Booster Gold appears to be a bit of a trend setter. Two covers with a very similar motif within six months of one another: coincidence or crib? Morgenstern wondered if both of these covers were based on an older, pre-existing cover. Anyone have any ideas?
