 Made for Television Event

Friday, January 12, 2018

Newsarama.com recently declared Booster Gold the best time-traveling comic book hero "of all time." (Does that include the comic books of the future?) However, Booster still isn't as well known as television's greatest time traveler, Doctor Who.

Ross Pearsall has done his part to correct that imbalance in two recent issues of his long-running Super-Team Family Presents... mash-ups.

Super-Team Family Presents #2077

Super-Team Family Presents #2078

And these aren't the only Booster Gold related team-ups Pearsall has given us in the past month. Ross also reunited Roboforce, the all-robot team of Skeets, R2D2, Red Tornado, Atomic Robo, and Machine Man in a battle against their mortal enemy, Magnus: Robot Fighter! You can see that issue on braveandboldlost.blogspot.com.

Keep up the good work, Ross.

 Super-Team Ups, Real Life Edition

Monday, October 2, 2017

Everyone knows that Booster Gold cannot travel back in time into the Marvel Universe. But what this cover presupposes is... maybe he can?

Super-Team Family Presents #1990

This is another genius mash-up cover from the mind of Ross Pearsall of Super-Team Family Presents.... In fact, this cover image is Ross' 2,500th. Congratulations!

 Super-Team Ups Continue

Friday, May 19, 2017

I don't know how Ross Pearsall does it, but he continues to churn out some amazing covers at Super-Team Family Presents.... In the past week alone, he's given us pairings of Groot and Chewbacca, Sgt. Rock and Cobra Commander, and Captain Carrot and Donald Duck. Whew!

But what earns him his latest mention here on Boosterrific.com is the return of Skeets' all-robot super team, Robo Force:

Super-Team Family Presents #1850

Skeets versus Brainiac! Why hasn't that happened in DC Comics before now?

As a bonus, check out this cover featuring the Blue Beetle's new partner.

Super-Team Family Presents #1855

Thanks for all your hard work, Ross.

 Must The Show Go On?

Friday, November 18, 2016

Things have been changing in America lately, and not necessarily for the better. Not so many years ago, many DC Comics super hero bloggers and I participated in semi-regular crossover events. Now very few of us are still posting.

Both FirestormFan.com and AquamanShrine.net have stopped blogging to focus their efforts on podcasting (fireandwaterpodcast.com). The Martian Manhunter blog, The Idol-Head of Diabolu, has likewise gone silent as its creator also seems to be concentrating on podcasts for his other blogs (DC Bloodlines and Wonder Woman: Diana Prince). So too, Splitting Atoms is now more podcast than blog. Others that have fallen completely silent (like Tower of Fate and Being Carter Hall). Some stalwarts soldier on, including SpeedForce.org and Kord Industres. We seem to be the exception rather than the rule.

Once again, this has made me return to a question I've asked myself from time to time since Booster Gold disappeared from the pages of DC Comics: Has the time for websites dedicated to super hero blogging passed us by? Would comics fans rather listen to a podcast than read a website? Is the problem the characters or the bloggers or just shifting demographics?

Like so many of those now-defunct sites, Boosterrific.com is first and foremost a hobby. I started working on it nine years ago, and I keep it running because I want to. Personally, I have no interest in phone apps, wikis, or podcasting. If that's the future of Booster Gold fandom, I'll leave it to someone else. (The Silver and Gold podcast — now a whole network — seems to be doing just fine without me.)

Don't worry, this post isn't a lead up to the retirement of Boosterrific.com. I'm only committing my rambling grumpy old man thoughts to electronic paper. I'm not going anywhere anytime soon. It's just that I'm starting to feel kind of lonely out here all by myself. I sure would like some new Booster Gold comics to keep me company.
