Casa De Fans 2

Back in December 2020, I told you about Argentinian Pablo Stadelman's first book, Cosa De Fans, which contained interviews with comics creators, notably including many who had worked on Booster Gold. And now I'm telling you about Pablo's second book. Or, more accurately, here's Pablo to tell you about his new book, Cosa De Fans 2:

Dear All.

I am Pablo Stadelman, from Campana, province of Buenos Aires.

I am writing to tell you about my new book called "Fan Thing 2: Stories and Anecdotes from the World of Comics".

It contains interviews with comic references such as Sal Buscema, Keith Williams, Mark McKenna and Brandon Peterson along with various stories and anecdotes from the world of comics.

From the work of publishers to the creation of characters, the book covers different aspects of the publishing world.

The book is special for all those comic fans who want to know more about the way comics are made, as well as for those who seek to become familiar with the wonderful world of comics.

The cover is made by Darío Brizuela and its ISBN is 9789878819433.

I send you the image of the cover and the back cover so that you can know it.

Casa De Fans 2

I hope I have not bothered you with this message.

I send you a huge greeting.

Hey, that's Justice League Spectacular #1 on the book cover! Pretty cool Easter Egg for Booster Gold fans.

Good luck with your new book, Pablo.

All Better Now

In comic books, heroes arrive in the nick of time to restore the status quo. That's generally what you want when a crime is being committed. But what if the problem is the status quo itself?

That's why the first Earth Day was organized on April 22, 1970 (as any environmentally conscious time-traveler could tell you).

Most of us have only one Earth, and all things being equal, it has treated us pretty well so far. The least we can do is try to keep it the kind of planet our heroes would be proud to call home.

The Art of Distraction

There's a lot of terrible stuff going on in the world, and it's always nice to be reminded that there's some pretty great stuff, too.

It's only February and Cort Carpenter has been having a busy 2022 adding to his Booster Gold sketchbook. Most of the following were picked up at the recent Fan Expo 2022:

As an added Bonus, Cort also completed some matched sets of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle!

Thanks, Cort! I don't know how you afford all these commissions in this economy, but keep up the great work.

Calling All Librarians

OG Booster booster Shawn Baston recently notified me that he had spotted Booster Gold someplace I'd never thought to look: in the pages of DC Super-Pets Character Encyclopedia (Picture Window Books, 2013)!

Skeets... classified as a pet? I don't think he'd like that.

I've updated the Other Media > Books section of the site with this and a few other books that Shawn was able to confirm, but he suggested still others that *might* have Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearances that we have not been able to confirm. I thought I'd put the word out to see if any of Booster's other loyal fans could provide any additional insights.

All of the following were published by DK. Links are to the titles on Amazon.com for reference.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia: New Exclusive Pirate Batman Minifigure (2016)

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Visual Dictionary: With Exclusive Yellow Lantern Batman Minifigure (2018)

DC Comics Year By Year, New Edition: A Visual Chronicle (2019)

DC Comics Cover Art (2020)

The DC Book: A Vast and Vibrant Multiverse Simply Explained (2021)

If anyone can confirm or definitively rule out a Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearance in any of those — or any other books that may not be listed on Boosterrific.com, please drop a note in the comments below.

Thanks, Shawn!

UPDATE: Logan Peterson has confirmed Booster's inclusion in DC Comics Cover Art, The DC Book, and DC Comics Year By Year. Thanks, Logan!

UPDATE February 20: J adds that Booster Gold is name-dropped in the Kingdom Come novelization that I didn't have in the books section, so I've added that, too. Thanks, J!

Fantastic Six

The news broke Monday that Warner Brothers has a live-action Wonder Twins project in the works. As a longtime fan of Jayna and Zan, I'd be super stoked about this... if I didn't remember all those times I was promised a live-action Booster Gold that never came to pass.

Frankly, if I'm in the market for some superhero stories that I'll never get to watch, I personally prefer to visit Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... blog, where I get teased by the likes of this:

Super-Team Family Presents #3590

Uh, oh. Something tells me that Booster and Johnny Storm aren't going to get along at all. Let the fireworks begin!

Keep up the good work, Ross.
