 New Release: Action Comics 997

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine's Day, Booster boosters! For your present, DC Comics is giving you "Booster Shot" part five in Action Comics #997.

Just as last issue, only one of the two covers to Action #997 features Booster Gold. The "standard" cover is by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund.

 No Action Today

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

If you're going to your Local Comic Shop today, don't expect to find "Booster Shot" Part Five. Action Comics #997 won't be out until next week.

(Yes, Action Comics #996 came out two weeks ago, but last week was a 5th-week "skip week", so DC doesn't count it as part of their regular schedule.)

So while we have to wait an extra week for more Booster Gold, we'll just consider Action #997 a Booster Gold Valentine's Day special.

 This Day in History: Superfriends

Friday, February 2, 2018

As we continue the march to the milestone Action Comics #1000, it's probably worth noting that Booster Gold was seen in previous anniversary issues.

Booster had only been in comics for 2 years when he was included in Action Comics #600, released 30 years ago today. Booster's role was a small one, appearing in a pin-up of the Justice League International by Linda Medley and Art Adams.

That's a happy bunch. Obviously Booster is pleased to be beside his best bud Blue Beetle, but everyone else seems to be enjoying the occasion as well. Everyone but Guy Gardner. Does that guy ever smile?

Will Booster be reunited with his Justice League pals in Action #1000? I guess we'll find out in April.

 New Release: Action Comics 996

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

The Superman/Booster Gold team-up continues in today's Action Comics #996.

"Booster Shot" Part 4 is the first not to feature Booster on both covers. Therefore, it's okay if you buy only one copy this week. (The "variant" cover with Booster Gold is by Dustin Nguyen).

Go to DenOfGeek.com to read the preview, then go to your Local Comic Shop to buy the issue and make Skeets happy!

(Relax and enjoy your Action Comics today. We'll discuss DC's April solicitations on Friday.)

 New Release: Action Comics 995

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

"Booster Shot," the epic team-up pairing Superman and Booster Gold, continues in today's Action Comics #995.

Though interior art is provided by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund (and not Dan Jurgens), Jurgens did draw one of the two covers. The other cover is credited to Jay Leisten and Neil Edwards.

UPDATE: dccomics.com got their own credits wrong again (for the third issue in a row). The alternate cover is by Dustin Nguyen.

Newsarma.com has the preview. (Spoiler warning: It contains the return of an old Booster Gold foe whose name rhymes with Roderick!)

Buy it today and make Skeets happy!
