Heroes in Crisis #7 arrives in your Local Comic Shop today, but it's already had a bit of controversy. The originally solicited, "unfinished," cover by Clay Mann was pulled back in December at the request of Tom King. It was replaced by this, the final cover by Mitch Gerads:
I have to say that I like this new cover much better, not the least because this one shows Booster Gold! (Sure, he's getting thrown around by Superman, but Superman throws everyone around. Jerk.)
You can find an issue preview online at DenOfGeek.com in which Blue Beetle and Batgirl have a conversation! (Brace yourself: Batgirl continues to be written like no incarnation of the character I've ever read before. Maybe she's the killer?)
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy!

I'm on record as saying I'm no fan of what Tom King has done to Booster Gold in issues of Batman and Heroes in Crisis. However, I cannot deny that my dissatisfaction has been softened considerably by some pretty fine art by King's collaborators.
Artist Tony Daniel is selling his original inks from Batman #45 on ComicArtFans.com. I'm not nuts about the story, but doesn't Daniel's Booster Gold look dashing as he crashes through that window? It can be yours for $700!
Keep up the good work, everyone.

We're still a week-and-a-half away from Heroes in Crisis #5, but what appears to be its title page turned up on reddit earlier this week. Feast your eyes on this!
That's Clay Mann's art, all right. He's really quite good. In fact, he's the best thing about Heroes in Crisis.
For the record, DC, I'd buy a book of splash pages of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold hanging out eating pizza and drinking beer. Can we make that happen?

I'm not sure what to make of this Tom King tweet from Friday:
We've known since New York Comic Con back in October that King has been planning on pairing Blue and Gold for Heroes in Crisis. This tweet, presumably, is the proof that it is indeed coming. But how?
The Booster Gold in Heroes in Crisis has never been a partner of any incarnation of the Blue Beetle (so far as we know), so is their first meeting? Or a reunion of a previously unseen, shared past in the DC Rebirth Universe? Or a vision in Booster's head generated by Sanctuary?
For answers to these (and many other questions), we'll just have to keep reading future issues of Heroes in Crisis.

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.
