Negative four hundred twenty-four years is a long time. For comparison, 424 years ago was 1594, the year that William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus and Italian Renaissance painter Tintoretto died.
Congratulations, Booster! Here's to many more birthdays to come, negative or otherwise.

Attention, Booster boosters! Remember to wish Booster Gold creator Dan Jurgens a happy birthday today. (He hides as @thedanjurgens on Twitter.)
In celebration, consider buying today's Batman Beyond #21 written by Dan Jurgens! Maybe also a copy of today's Man of Steel #5, which Jurgens had nothing to do with other than inspiring the cover with his own layouts from the now-classic 1993 Superman #75!
If we're all really, really nice to him, maybe he'll find a way to sneak Booster into Green Lanterns. (Hmm. Isn't it about time there was a gold lantern? Booster already has a ring.)

Though he has drawn almost everything over the course of his incredible career in funny books, I most associate artist Joe Staton with the Green Lantern Corps (especially Guy Gardner).
And, of course, with 1988's Millennium mini-series.
Say what you will about Millennium and its place in DC's steady parade of "no really, this one's important!" events, but at least Millennium reserved a prominent role for Booster Gold in his first big company-wide event. (And then was used as an excuse to cancel his series. So a mixed bag there overall.)
Thanks for helping introduce Booster Gold to the masses, Joe.

Today marks the negative 425th birthday of Jon Michael "Booster" Carter, born this day in the year 2442.
If you've got $100 to drop on an action figure, I think I've got a pretty good way to celebrate the occasion.
Perhaps you recall that I first reported on a 12-inch Justice League Action Booster Gold figure from Target back in March? By June, I'd given up hope that we would ever actually see it in stores. I might have been premature.
Earlier this week, I got word that Mattel might finally be releasing the figure in 2018. While researching that claim yesterday, I found this on eBay.com:
I've still never seen one of these in the wild, but if this is the real deal (and there's no reason to suspect that it isn't), there must be others out there somewhere.
Keep your eyes peeled, Booster boosters! And Happy Birthday, Booster!
UPDATE 01/01/2018: The Blot notes that this figure is now available on Amazon.com for $13! Man, 2018 is looking Boosterrific already!
