Ghost of Christmas Future

DC Nuclear Winter Special #1 will be coming to your Local Comic Shop later this week. It will be an anthology that includes a story about Rip Hunter being trapped in a post-apocalyptic future with a malfunctioning time sphere. The writer for that story is Mark Russell.

Russell — who ranks high among my favorite writers — was recently interviewed by Ernie Estrella for SyFy Wire in which he hinted that he'd like another shot at writing Booster Gold.

Russell has also written backup Superman stories, and has Harley Quinn #56 due out in December. He is inching closer to writing a DCU title regularly. His next project is to establish The Wonder Twins as a part of Brian Michael Bendis' Wonder Comics imprint in February of 2019. As for Rip Hunter, Russell had so much fun but had to leave much of it on the cutting room floor, similar to writing the Booster Gold / Flintstones crossover.

"What I would like to do someday is write a Booster Gold - Rip Hunter crossover that involves a time sphere, that expands on the two stories that I didn't get to tell in their totality," Russell openly pitched. If fans are lucky enough, Rip's future looks gold.

I could never be that lucky, so I hope that some other Booster booster is. I need more Booster Gold & Son stories in my life!

You can read more of the interview and see a preview of the DC Nuclear Winter Special at SyFy.com.

Just in Time for Christmas

Last year, DC Collectibles promised us a two-pack of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold action figures. That set was canceled because of lack of demand. I doubt this latest Blue and Gold two-pack will suffer a similar fate.

Introducing the Previews Exclusive Funko Pop! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold vinyl figure two-pack!

Previews Exclusive Funko Pop! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold two-pacek

From Previewsworld.com:

The DC Universe's most hilarious crime-fighting duo comes to three dimensions with these PREVIEWS Exclusive Funko Pop! two-packs!

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold stand about 3 1/4" tall and come in a collector friendly window box for display. Recreate the adventures of two of the Justice League International's greatest heroes with these PX Pop! figures!

Just last week, I was having a discussion with Randy, the owner of my Local Comic Shop about the incredible popularity of Funko Pop! figures. I admitted that I don't get the appeal of the "superdeformed" vinyl statuettes that were taking up an entire wall in his store. Randy suggested that I was just old. His argument didn't win me over, but the fact that this Booster Gold Funko Pop! figure has a collar might.

The two-packs will come in two different finishes, standard and metallic. Either version has a suggested retail price of $22.99 and a targeted arrival date of December 20, 2017.

Since these are Previews Exclusives, be sure to tell your Local Comic Shop that you want one (or two) well in advance. I already sent my email to Randy.
