Speaking of Dirk Davis

Great minds think alike. No sooner had I finished writing Friday's bio on Dirk Davis than I clicked over to Ross Pearsall's delightful Super-Team Family Presents... blog and found that he's also got Booster Gold's agent on his creative mind.

Super-Team Family Presents #2561

Mojo is an X-Men villain from another universe who, like Booster Gold, debuted in the mid-1980s as a commentary on American celebrity culture. In Mojo's case, he's a parody of a television network executive whose only desire is to get great ratings at any cost. In other words, he's a natural foe for popularity-obsessed a Booster Gold!

Great job, Ross.

No Skeets Left Behind

I have sung the praises of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... covers for years. And I'll keep doing it so long as Ross continues to create such masterpieces as this, the latest to feature RoboFoce, Skeets' all-robot action team!

Super-Team Family Presents #2450

Issue #2450 was the sixth RoboForce cover appearance. Since I have only shown 3 of them, I'll correct that oversight now by adding the two I missed.

Super-Team Family Presents #2090

I particularly love that all of these feature a different Skeets model.

Super-Team Family Presents #202

Click on any of these covers to visit BraveAndBoldLost.blogspot.com and see more of Pearsall's imagination at work.

From Here to Excelsior

I first re-published the following image from Ross Pearsall's incomparable Super-Team Family Presents... blog back in 2017, but it's even more appropriate today.

Super-Team Family Presents #1990

Lee has oft been accused of seeking the limelight at the expense of others, a personality flaw that should be painfully familiar to Booster Gold fans. Whatever faults he might have had, Lee was a master storyteller and promoter, and I shudder to think of what American superhero comics might now be if not for his contributions to the medium. Thanks, Stan.

Fantastic Foursome Returns From the Grave

I've made no secret of my appreciation of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... mash-ups. They're all great. The latest to feature Booster Gold is no exception.

Super-Team Family Presents #2187

If I saw that cover on a newsstand, it would definitely be coming home with me. Great work, Ross.

This Day in History: Blast Off

Not so long ago, Erin of Exploring the Time Lab was ruminating on some older comics she wanted to read. Included in her list was Blasters Special #1, which just happens to have been released 29 years ago today.

The Blasters were a space-faring group of super heroes spinning out of the Invasion! event. (I always think of them as a second-rate Omega Men.) Their biggest claim to fame was the inclusion of cast-off JLA mascot Snapper Carr, who had gained the ability to teleport by snapping his fingers. Snapper's inclusion in the Blasters was short lived (as were the Blasters themselves: their entire career was limited to Invasion, this one shot, and a couple of issues of Valor). Snapper would eventually move on to support the DC One Million-incarnation of Hourman in his own title.

So far as Booster Gold is concerned, his brief cameo in Blasters Special is limited entirely to the two-page spread pictured above. Of special note is the fact that this is the only time to date Booster has appeared on-panel with lesser known DC Comics heroes Brother Power the Geek or Shade the Changing Man. Oddly, Booster Gold wouldn't appear on panel with any of the Blasters until 2007, when he finally crossed paths with Snapper Carr at the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary.

There you go, Erin. Now you know what you've been missing.
