This week, I finally got my hands on the new Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game: Multiverse Blue Beetle & Booster Gold two-pack figures, and they're pretty much as advertised.
I ordered them from GameNerdz.com.
As you can see, the miniatures (34mm high) are sold unpainted and unassembled, so you'll need to do a little work to get them display (or play) ready. For example, my Beetle fit poorly in his stand, and my Booster had some residual resin flash that required cutting away with an xacto blade. (You can see the white line under his outstretched arm.) Your mileage may vary.
If I do ever get around to painting them — and they turn out well — I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. (The list of things I say I'm going to get around to only gets longer and longer. Sigh.)

Some of you reading this today are too young to remember that Booster Gold was once DC's resident continuity cop with a detailed working knowledge of how things were supposed to be. He had his own series dedicated to adventuring between and behind the panels of previously documented events from the lives of other DC characters.
It's true. Long before Booster was a mass murder suspect in Heroes in Crisis, he was making mistakes of a different sort as documented in Booster Gold: Blue and Gold, a collection of the second half of Geoff Johns and Jeff Katz's run on Booster Gold, volume 2.
You might be startled to realize that Booster Gold: Blue and Gold was released 10 years ago today. Ten. Whole. Years. Gee whiz, time flies when you're growing old.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some good old comics to go re-read.

Booster booster and art collector Cort was at Vancouver Fan Expo last week, and he picked up several Boosterrific sketches that he's willing to share with us:
Artists and Cort's comments are, from left to right, John Delaney ("He did this all from memory"), Pia Guerra ("She enjoyed doing the collar"), Steve Lieber ("Funny and generous"), and Mike McKone ("Probably the best Booster I've seen him do!"). Click on any of the above sketches to see larger images on Imgur.com.
That's truly a great haul, Cort. Congratulations!

Russ Burlingame reporting for Comicbook.com from the Tom King panel at New York Comic Con on Saturday:
"Booster Gold and Ted Kord will be getting back together in Heroes in Crisis, and King says he is looking forward to that."
Blue and Gold together again? I should be all "whoo-hoo!" But considering Tom King and the context of Heroes in Crisis....
We will see what we will see.
