Booster Gold-related pickings were slim at this year's Comic Con. What did we learn? Not much.
1. Booster Gold will not be in CW's Legends of Tomorrow season 4.
Per CBR.com: When asked at Saturday's DC's Legends of Tomorrow panel whether Booster Gold might put in an appearance, show executive producer Phil Klemmer said it was "not in the works." Seeing as how Booster hasn't been in any of the first three seasons of Legends of Tomorrow, this hardly comes as a shock.
2. Nathan Fillion isn't planning on playing Booster Gold.
Per ScreenRant.com: When asked whether he was aware that some fans want him to portray Booster Gold on screen, the Castle actor said that he likes the character but he's not campaigning for the part. Given that there has been no evidence that anyone is currently actively working on a Booster Gold movie or television project (and he won't be in Legends of Tomorrow ), this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone, either.
3. Booster Gold will be playing a central role in Heroes in Crisis.
Per: Newsarama.com: Yes, we've known about Heroes in Crisis for nearly 2 months. But DC had a very weird press conference on a boat — somebody really loved Eyes Wide Shut — to promote the mini-series where they released new colored Clay Mann art featuring our hero.
I'm still not sold on Heroes in Crisis, but I can't deny that it's looking pretty darn good.

You'll find the third and final chapter of "The Gift" appearing in Batman #47 is in your Local Comic Shop today. CBR.com has the preview, demonstrating that Booster Gold has lost his mind and Bruce Wayne is a real bastard.
If you missed the beginning of this story — lucky you. But if you still want a copy, DC is releasing a second printing of Batman #45 today. The first printing sold out all 96,000+ copies. To put that in perspective, that one issue has already sold more than *twice* the number of copies of any single issue of Booster's recent 6-part "Booster Shot" story in Action Comics.
(Consider that Booster's first series was canceled because the character was rejected by 1980s audiences for being too immoral, yet the version of Booster that sells best in 2018 is a much, much bigger jerk than Dan Jurgens' original incarnation ever was. Go figure.)
Batman #47 isn't the only issue out today featuring Booster Gold and Batman. A more traditional interpretation of both characters can be found in Injustice 2 #26. Our hero doesn't play a big part in the proceedings, but at least he's easy to recognize. He's the only hero attending Batman's meeting wearing a t-shirt with his own face on it.
Who says we can't have it all? Booster boosters who like the beard can pick up Batman #47. And for those who prefer a clean-shaven hero, grab Injustice #26. Everybody's a winner today.

Last week at CBR.com, Jason Cohen postulated that Booster Gold is the solution to most of the problems with the DC Extended Universe (read: movies).
Booster may not seem like the blockbuster name that will fix the DCEU, but the character could do the necessary legwork to "boost" confidence in the future of the troubled cinematic universe. Between the character's bumbling wannabe hero schtick, his time traveling capabilities, and a character arc on par with Iron Man or Ant-Man, he's the perfect choice to cement the redefinition of the DCEU.
I certainly agree with Cohen's larger point that the DCEU needs an overhaul. I'm not so sure, however, that Booster is the solution.
I'm really of two minds about this. On the one hand, I'd love to see a good Booster Gold movie. On the other hand, I'm not sure that Warner Bros even can make a good Booster Gold movie.
Until Warner Bros demonstrates to me that they can consistently make the kind of superhero films I want to see — Wonder Woman's first two acts were a good start — perhaps it would be best if Booster remained the greatest hero the cinema-going public has never heard of.

I've seen references to Booster pop up on quite a few sites this week. Rather than spotlight any one of them and leave the others out, I'll just share what I've found and let you visit whatever you think sounds good.
Edward Wallace counts Booster's force field among the "Most Powerful Weapons in the DC Comic Book Universe."(FortressofSolitude.co.za)
Now you've got something to read between your green beers tomorrow, Booster boosters! Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day weekend.

Another week, another Booster Gold comic book appearance, this time in Injustice 2 #21.
You may recall this digital-first issue was released on Comixology.com back in January as "Chapter Forty-One." If you didn't pick it up then, you probably want to do so today. Even though it takes place in the continuity of the Injustice video game, it's always entertaining to see the Blue and Gold team back together.
If you choose to buy a copy, it will make Skeets happy.
On a barely related note, also in stores today is Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #3. It has nothing to do with Booster Gold except maybe the writer, Mark Russell. According to CBR.com, Russell told the crowd at last weekend's Emerald City Comic Con that the character he'd most like to explore more of in the "Rebirth" era is Booster Gold. Russell is already familiar with our hero; he wrote last summer's Booster Gold/Flintstone Special.
Snaggletooth is limited to six issues, so Russell will be free to explore other projects soon. And Dan Jurgens will need something to do after Bendis takes over Action Comics. How about some new Mark Russell written, Dan Jurgens drawn Booster Gold adventures, DC?
There have been 1956 blog entries since January 2010.
