 Rule of Three

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

We've known for a month that Booster Gold will be in Batman #45 this April. DC released solicitations for May 2018 yesterday, and now we know many issues of Batman he'll be appearing in in total. The answer: 3.

BATMAN #46
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA
"THE TRAVELERS" part two! Booster Gold's wedding present has screwed up Batman's past, and done even more damage to his present. Now, with the Caped Crusader himself refusing to cooperate, the only way for Booster to correct this runaway timeline is to get Catwoman on his side. But with her own past altered, can he make Catwoman recognize the qualities in her husband-to-be that brought them together in the first place? Plus, if Batman isn't doing his job, Gotham City may become way more dangerous than our bumbling time-traveler might be ready for.
On sale MAY 2 • $2.99 US

BATMAN #47
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA
“THE TRAVELERS” part three! As Booster Gold, Batman and Catwoman zero in on the time anomaly, what they find and their actions to correct it will have ramifications on all of the DC Universe. Tom King and Master Class artist Tony S. Daniel end their first story with a bang that will tee up the next big development in the Batman/Catwoman romance.
On sale MAY 16 • $2.99 US

"Bumbling" time-traveler? They must be talking about someone else. We'll find out more in May.

(Note: Booster also will appear in a very, very small part in the announced Final Crisis: The 10th Anniversary Omnibus hardcover coming in September. I mention that only because it's Boosterrific.com's goal to cover every appearance of Booster Gold, not because I recommend that you buy it. I'd certainly never recommend that anyone buy a $150 book for only one or two panels of Booster Gold. Three is my limit.)

 Wait Until They Get A Load of Him

Friday, February 9, 2018

Those of you not on Twitter may not have seen this:

First look at my #Batman arc with @TomKingTK which starts with 45. Did someone say #BoosterGold and #Skeets? -- TonyDanielx2 on Twitter, 2018-02-08

That's Batman artist Tony Daniel tweeting his take on Booster Gold and Skeets in pencils from what is presumably Batman #45, due to hit shelves on April 18. I can't wait!

 Back to the Booster Cave

Friday, January 26, 2018

Just as Booster Gold's time with Superman is winding down, DC announces the party is continuing with Batman!

From April solicitations released earlier this week:

BATMAN #45
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA
Cover by TONY S. DANIEL
Variant cover by OLIVIER COIPEL
"THE TRAVELERS" part one! Booster Gold has come to Gotham City, and he's enlisting Batman and Catwoman to go on a time-traveling mission to rescue . . . Booster Gold!

It seems a younger Booster Gold has gone back in time to kidnap an even younger version of himself, and to rescue his own past, Booster must pursue both of his previous incarnations through Batman's history to find out what is going on.

The start of a new story that will sow the seeds for a whole new epic to come—and also the return of Master Class artist Tony S. Daniel (DAMAGE) to BATMAN!
On sale APRIL 18 • $2.99 US

This story must be what Tom King was hinting at on Twitter earlier this month.

Next. -@TomKingTK, January 9, 2018

Buckle up, Booster boosters, 2018 is the year of Booster Gold!

 Batman and Harley Quinn (Take Two)

Monday, August 28, 2017

When I originally posted this clip from Warner Bros Entertainment's Batman and Harley Quinn in April, it disappeared before many of you got a chance to see it. Since the movie is actually being released tomorrow, let's try this again.

The movie was co-written by Jim Krieg and Bruce Timm (and Timm provides the voice for Booster!).

Given that Krieg is also a producer for Justice League Action, I think he deserves some extra credit for keeping Booster in the public eye during our hero's current absence from the DCnU. Thanks Jim.

 This Day in History: Booster God

Friday, July 7, 2017

Once upon a time, Booster Gold appeared quite regularly in the annual crossover events uniting the DCU. For example, it was just 25 years ago today that Booster Gold appeared in a supporting role in Action Comics Annual #4.

Back then, Booster and other members of the Justice League International were on the scene to try and free Superman from the clutches of Eclipso. These days that job would go exclusively to Batman, because... well, Batman.

It might be interesting to note that Blue Beetle wasn't with the rest of the Justice League for this mission (he had gone missing in the JLA Annual the previous month). That is consistent with the approach to the character taken by the current Blue Beetle series.

According to writer Kieth Giffen in an interview with Vaneta Rogers for Newsarama.com, the modern "rebirth" incarnation of Ted Kord was never a member of any Justice League. But Giffen also says that the events of Justice League 3000 are in Blue Beetle's future. JL3k was openly stated to take place in the same continuity as the original Justice League International stories. So . . . I have no idea what all that means for the current status of Blue and Gold.

Congratulations, DC. I'm not even trying to make sense of your continuity anymore.
