I Am a Party Crasher

I've been innundated by great tips lately, and I do mean that in the best possible way. The latest tip comes from J, who writes:

I don't know if you're aware of the children's book "I am Superman", by Brad Meltzer and Christopher Eliopoulos. (I couldn't find it when I searched this website.)

Near the end of it, there's a two-page spread of superheroes, and Booster has a cameo at the top of the right-hand page. At the back of the book, there's also a guide, listing all the heroes in the spread, and Booster is marked as #55.

This is the second half of that two-page spread, where you can see Booster Gold hanging out with Superman's best friend, Krypto!

Thanks for letting us know, J. I have already updated the Boosterrific Books! page with your find.

Keep your eyes open, everybody. Booster Gold is everywhere!

DC Greatest Events

Booster booster Logan Peterson works in a bookstore and writes in to tell us that he has spotted our hero in the new book DC Greatest Events coming soon from Stephen Wiacek and DK.

I meandered my way through and can report that Booster makes several visual appearances--mostly in group shots from events like Zero Hour and Heroes in Crisis. He is listed in the index, though, which directs one to this particular page in the Flashpoint entry:

DC Greatest Events by Stephen Wiacek

Golly. At the time, I believed Flashpoint was nothing more than a naked cash grab before the "New 52" launch. Reading that recap description of the "16 interlinked but self-contained three-issue limited series" makes me think my original opinion was too generous.

Thanks for the heads-up, Logan. Now everybody knows what to ask for from Santa this Christmas!

Casa De Fans 2

Back in December 2020, I told you about Argentinian Pablo Stadelman's first book, Cosa De Fans, which contained interviews with comics creators, notably including many who had worked on Booster Gold. And now I'm telling you about Pablo's second book. Or, more accurately, here's Pablo to tell you about his new book, Cosa De Fans 2:

Dear All.

I am Pablo Stadelman, from Campana, province of Buenos Aires.

I am writing to tell you about my new book called "Fan Thing 2: Stories and Anecdotes from the World of Comics".

It contains interviews with comic references such as Sal Buscema, Keith Williams, Mark McKenna and Brandon Peterson along with various stories and anecdotes from the world of comics.

From the work of publishers to the creation of characters, the book covers different aspects of the publishing world.

The book is special for all those comic fans who want to know more about the way comics are made, as well as for those who seek to become familiar with the wonderful world of comics.

The cover is made by Darío Brizuela and its ISBN is 9789878819433.

I send you the image of the cover and the back cover so that you can know it.

Casa De Fans 2

I hope I have not bothered you with this message.

I send you a huge greeting.

Hey, that's Justice League Spectacular #1 on the book cover! Pretty cool Easter Egg for Booster Gold fans.

Good luck with your new book, Pablo.

Calling All Librarians

OG Booster booster Shawn Baston recently notified me that he had spotted Booster Gold someplace I'd never thought to look: in the pages of DC Super-Pets Character Encyclopedia (Picture Window Books, 2013)!

written by Steve Korte, illustrated by Art Baltazar

Skeets... classified as a pet? I don't think he'd like that.

I've updated the Other Media > Books section of the site with this and a few other books that Shawn was able to confirm, but he suggested still others that *might* have Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearances that we have not been able to confirm. I thought I'd put the word out to see if any of Booster's other loyal fans could provide any additional insights.

All of the following were published by DK. Links are to the titles on Amazon.com for reference.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia: New Exclusive Pirate Batman Minifigure (2016)

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Visual Dictionary: With Exclusive Yellow Lantern Batman Minifigure (2018)

DC Comics Year By Year, New Edition: A Visual Chronicle (2019)

DC Comics Cover Art (2020)

The DC Book: A Vast and Vibrant Multiverse Simply Explained (2021)

If anyone can confirm or definitively rule out a Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearance in any of those — or any other books that may not be listed on Boosterrific.com, please drop a note in the comments below.

Thanks, Shawn!

UPDATE: Logan Peterson has confirmed Booster's inclusion in DC Comics Cover Art, The DC Book, and DC Comics Year By Year. Thanks, Logan!

UPDATE February 20: J adds that Booster Gold is name-dropped in the Kingdom Come novelization that I didn't have in the books section, so I've added that, too. Thanks, J!

Looking for Something to Read

Blue and Gold #4 was originally solicited for October 19, but when issue 3 slid to October 12, it was easy to see that that issue 4 would be significantly off target, too. Expect to see it next week.

In the meantime, may I suggest that you read a book. Maybe the kind without pictures. Perhaps a book like The Death and Life of Superman (1993, ISBN 0-553-09582-X) by Action Comics writer Roger Stern?

You'll find this historic passage early in Chapter 8:

Now that's what I call literature!
