Old Friends Are the Best Friends

The cover of Blue and Gold #3 teases "the million-dollar debut of Buggles," but the real guest of honor in this issue is...

It has been too long, girl! For those who don't remember, Trixie was Booster's first secretary at Goldstar, Inc. (as seen in the immortal Booster Gold #1 in 1985). Trixie was also the first to wear the Goldstar uniform. She and Booster made a great team back in the day.

When Booster joined the JLI full time, he and Trixie drifted apart. In fact, we haven't seen her since Chase #4 (in 1998!) while she was landlord to the Teen Titans. As you might expect from two former friends who couldn't make the time to maintain their relationship, their relationship was a bit frosty at the time.

It's good to see they've both grown past that.

In one of his long-lost-to-the-web "Gold Exchange" columns — presumably one that will be reprinted in his upcoming book — Russ Burlingame once reported that Dan Jurgens had plans to revisit Trixie in Booster Gold Volume 2, but the title was canceled before it ever happened. Thanks to DC for giving Jurgens another opportunity to bring Trixie back.

Planning Future Purchases

Booster Gold fans are a hard bunch to please!

Last week's poll question: Are you satisfied with the resolution to the post-Crisis Booster Gold's story told in Convergence? (59 votes)

Are you satisfied with the resolution to the post-<em>Crisis</em> Booster Gold's story told in <em>Convergence</em>?

Since we were all so evenly divided last week, it makes me wonder if the new status quo — specifically that from this point forward, the only Booster Gold is nuBooster Gold — changes your plans for future Booster Gold comics purchases.

New Old Releases: Chase

Today DC is releasing a comprehensive collection of Chase. This 329-page softcover includes the character's first appearance in Batman #550, the far-too-brief 10-issue series itself, and short stories from 8 different Secret Files comics originally published between the late 1990s and early 2000s.

If you have never read the series, you owe it to yourself to partake of writer Curtis Johnson's paranoid trip behind-the-scenes of the DC Universe and artist J.H. Williams III's delicately intricate panel designs.

And if that's not reason enough, be aware that Booster Gold appears or is referenced in at least four -- Chase #4, Chase #6, Chase #1,000,000, and DC Universe Secret Files 2000 (referenced during dialogue between Chase and Blue Beetle) -- of the issues appearing in this collection. This collection contains almost all of Booster's brief fling with Firehawk!

If there is any weakness to this collection, it's that there is no Skeets. Poor li'l guy. The 90s were not a good time to be a football-shaped sidekick.

UPDATE 12/29/2011: I've just been notified that Booster Gold appears (twice thrice!) in Teen Titans #4. Booster is seen in partial advertisements for toothpaste and the Daily Planet in Times Square. It may be a new DCU, but Booster's the same Shining Salesman.
