A thunderstorm came through my town and knocked out our power just as I was composing today's post at about 1AM. Without wifi, that's where it'll stay. Power company estimates a fix won't be in until nearly dawn, so I'm going to bed, and this is all the post you're going to get, Booster boosters.
While I'm sitting in the dark, may I suggest you go read some other site instead. I hear from The Blot that BleedingCool.com is hinting that Booster might have a bigger role to play after Dark Crisis is over. And Rob Snow says that Booster is in the newly published The DC Book of Lists, available for Kindle download right now at Amazon.com.
Or go outside and throw a ball for your dog. Not everything in the world is about comic books, you know.

In 1967, in the opening episode of the second season of Star Trek, best friends Captain Kirk and his first officer, Mister Spock, are forced to fight one another on an alien planet. The episode is called "Amok Time," and it's pretty good television.
Why do I mention that? Because DC has released the preview of this week's Blue and Gold #6!
I guess this makes Booster Spock? That's... not what I would have expected. Great! I like to be surprised. I hope that writer Dan Jurgens has a few other tricks up his sleeve to put his own spin on a classic situation.
You can find the whole preview at BleedingCool.com, and tomorrow, you can buy this issue from your Local Comic Shop (or whatever now passes for Comixology) and make Skeets happy.

I don't normally run "New Release" postings until a book is available for purchase, but I'm making an exception for tomorrow's Blue and Gold #3 because it has taken so long to get to this point.
You may recall that the issue was originally solicited for a September 27 release, but there have been... unforeseen complications. After Blue and Gold #2 failed to make its planned ship date in August, DC announced that COVID-19 inspired supply chain delays (mostly in paper stock) have resulted in a nearly line-wide cascading production disruption. For example, Blue and Gold #4, originally planned for October 19, will be postponed until at least November 9. Yikes.
So the fact that we're getting a Blue and Gold #3 at all is an event worth celebrating. But there's one other curveball, as revealed in the preview pages now available at BleedingCool.com:
The originally solicited artist, Ryan Sook, still has cover duties, but as the credits above indicate, interior art for the issue are provided by Cully Hamner instead. Hamner has done a lot of work for DC over the past three decades, but this will be his first Booster Gold comic. I am looking forward to seeing it. I hope you are too.
So don't forget to drop by your LCS this week to pick up Blue and Gold #3 and make Skeets happy.

Booster booster Rob Snow writes to say
I don't think there's a Blue and Gold coming out in November, according to the solicits.
A thorough search of gamesradar's listing of "November DC Comics revealed: A whole lot of Batman" — ain't that always the truth? — proves Rob right.
Last we heard, Blue and Gold #4 (of 8) is currently scheduled for a October 19 release, so we would have expected to see Blue and Gold #5 the third week in November. But as we learned last month, both Kevin Maguire and Dan Jurgens will be assisting on art duties for issue 4, and perhaps that's the reason for the delay on issue 5. This wouldn't be the first time a book's release schedule had to be revised to accommodate an artist (or three).
Oh, well. Better late than never. Thanks for the alert, Rob.
While Booster Gold shows up nowhere else in DC's November solicitations, he will be appearing in the upcoming new edition of the DC One Million Omnibus, which Amazon.com expects to be selling by May 3 (as reported by BleedingCool.com).
The 1,000+ page 2022-edition of the Omnibus will sell for around $100, which may seem a bit steep for a reprint of Booster Gold #1,000,000. But Booster Gold one million is the first appearance of Peter Platinum.
There's never enough Platinum to go around!

Bleeding Cool has discovered several yet-to-be-announced upcoming DC comics reprint collections, and one of them includes a Booster Gold adventure:
The Flintstones: The Deluxe Edition(Prez) and Steve Pugh (Animal Man) turned a beloved classic cartoon into a modern graphic novel masterpiece, and the entire 12-part story is collected in this Deluxe Edition hardcover—along with Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special #1, where DC's time-traveling hero meets Fred and Barney!
Welcome to Bedrock, where Paleolithic humans head to dinner for a taste of artisanal mammoth after shopping at Neandertall & Big Men's Clothing, where Wilma shows her modern art, and where, if you take a plane, you could end up sitting on the literal tail section. It's Fred, Wilma, Pebbles, Dino, Barney, Betty and Bamm-Bamm as you've never seen them before! The Flintstones garnered significant critical acclaim for its modern take on the iconic Hanna-Barbera prime-time animated series. This darkly hilarious title casts an acerbic eye on issues like consumerism, religion, politics, and relationships that's both distinctly 21st century and uniquely the Flintstones!
The critically acclaimed creative team of Mark Russell
Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special was released waaaay back in 2017, which feels like a few stone ages ago. Reprinted once already in DC meets Hanna-Barbera collection of out-of-continuity one-shots, it'll be nice to have it reprinted with The Flintstones mini-series (where it really belongs).
The Amazon listing says the book is scheduled for release on February 8, 2022. If you plan ahead, maybe your Local Comic Shop can get you a discount when it does finally come out.
