More Fung at C2E2

Herbert Fung has been going to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo for years, and more often than not, he seems to bring back a Booster Gold commission from a superstar artist. It was Adam Hughes in 2013, David Finch in 2014, and Ty Templeton in 2016.

This year, Herb has outdone himself with this amazing Booster Gold commission from Tom Grummett:

Oh, boy, that looks good! I'm gold with envy, Herb!

Grummett's credits are diverse, but I'll always think of him as THE artist for Superboy. After seeing this, I'm inclined to put him near the top of my list of Booster Gold artists as well.

For the Man Who Has Everything (But Parents)

I gave you the new cover to Batman #46 Friday, and the DC Batman Panel at C2E2 this past weekend gave us some exciting news about what you might find behind that cover.

Fair warning: the following post has light spoilers for next week's Batman #45, so cover your eyes if you don't want to know too much before you have the issue in your hands.

Still here? Ok. One additional warning! The preview images DC has released for this issue that can be found at any of the following links are uncommonly violent. (I might be getting prudish in my advancing age, but golly gee, maybe the Comics Code wasn't such a bad thing.)

Now, as I was saying, according to Newsarama's coverage of C2E2, quote

DC Comics has confirmed during their Batman panel panel at Chicago's C2E2 convention that the Booster Gold team up arc starting in April 18's Batman #45 will take place in an alternate world where Booster Gold has gone back in time to save Thomas and Martha Wayne - and inadvertently prevents Bruce Wayne's birth.

That news seems to come directly from writer Tom King himself. Rich Johnson has more detailed spoilers at BleedingCool.com for those of you who really want the dirt.

The rest of us will find out what the big deal is next week when Batman #45 will be in our Local Comic Shops. I advise reading it on an empty stomach.

Ty One On

Booster booster Herbert Fung has always been very generous in sharing the Booster Gold commissions he collects from the annual Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo. In past years, he's collected sketches from Adam Hughes and David Finch. What did Herbert get this year?

It's a commission by Booster Gold Volume 1 inker Ty Templeton! Man, I love that high collar.

Thanks again, Herbert!

Vacation Art: Day One

I'm out of town and away from the computer for the week, but I've still got your daily dose of Booster Gold covered.

Buster Gould by Ryan Browne

This C2E2 commission is from the tumblr of Ryan Browne, who you may know Browne from his comic, God Hates Astronauts.

Is That Made of Real Gold?

Herbert Fung emailed me a few weeks back with this cosplay pic he snapped at Calgary Comics & Entertainment Expo 2014 in April:

Thank you, Herbert. I still say the colors in that costume are more vibrant than in a comic book! (Check out those airbrushed abs!)

In related news, today is opening day of DragonCon in Atlanta, GA. There's always plenty of DC cosplayers at DragonCon, so here's fingers crossed that we'll see more Booster Gold cosplay pics maybe as soon as Tuesday. (Reminder: Monday is Labor Day, so no post.)
