Maybe I Should Be on Mastodon

The Booster Gold News Of The Week is the tweet at the bottom of this short thread:

Interestingly, Booster was the MOST requested character when I asked people on Mastodon what character they'd most like to see on screen. I'm not creating stories by public vote, but I  found it fascinating nevertheless. @JamesGunn via Twitter November 27, 2022

You know that tweet was shocking because it was covered by ComicBook.com, CBR.com, BleedingCool.com, ScreenRant.com, Looper.com, WeGotThisCovered.com, and for some reason, GQ.com, among many, many others, now including Boosterrific.com.

First of all, I'm not sure we can trust anything we read on Twitter these days. But supposing this tweeter is the real DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn, I think we have to assume all those people beating down his door are the angry fans of WB's Legends of Tomorrow, which was canceled before Donald Faison's Booster Gold could be redeemed. (He gets only one appearance, and sells out all the protagonists to the Time Police? What a dick!)

Frankly, I don't care whether those vocal Booster Gold proponents want more Faison, or want "The Greatest Story Never Told"'s Green Lantern, or want an Extreme Justice live-action movie (please, please, please!). More Booster Gold in any form is alright with me.

C'mon, James. Give the people what they want. Obviously, they have great taste.

Coming Soon: Lazarus Planet Omega

DC's February 2023 solicitations were released last week, and it appears that Booster Gold will play some role in the eight-issue "Lazarus Planet" event first announced back at New York Comic Con.

Or, at least, he'll be on the David Marquez cover to Lazarus Planet: Omega #1:

Given that A) Omega is the final book in the event, B) none of the solicitations or promotions otherwise mention him, and C) our hero is usually backgrounded in these sorts of big event stories, I don't have much hope that Booster will be playing a big role in this event.

But maybe I'm wrong. I sure hope I am. We'll certainly find out when Lazarus Planet: Omega comes our way on February 21.

Meanwhile, you can read more about Lazarus Planet and all other DC comics coming in February at GamesRadar.com.

New Release: Dark Crisis: The Dark Army 1

I spotted an unexpected Booster Gold appearance in CBR.com's preview of this week's Dark Crisis: The Dark Army one-shot:

Just in case you don't have your magnifying glass handy, here's a closer look.

That's just the first of two pages in the preview with Booster in it! Could there be more? Only one way to find out.

Buy this comic and make Skeets happy.

New Release: DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War 5

The preview at AIPTComics.com proves that Booster Gold still lives in the pages of DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War #5. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

More interesting to me is Booster's non-appearance on the cover of The Flash #788, or, more specifically, Todd Nauck's "90s Rewind" cardstock cover:

Obviously, those kids in the pool aren't really Blue and Gold, but they sure are dressing the part. Check out their deck art!

Ok, so that's not a very "90s" Skeets, but any Skeets is always better than none.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have the urge to go re-watch Gleaming the Cube.

UPDATE 2022-11-16: Booster also makes a cameo appearance in this week's Dark Crisis: Young Justice #6!

Lucky City

I love praise, and I also love seeing Booster Gold in comics. So I especially love this message I got last week from Rasalonn:

Hi. Love the blog. In the new Catwoman book, Zatanna is shown working at a casino. And there is a single image of the casino and it has to be owned by Booster Gold . Does that count? Even if it's not him, it is a clear reference to him.

The book Rasalonn is talking about is Catwoman: Lonely City #4, which takes place ten years after the death of Batman. Pictured on page 4 of that issue is this sequence:

written, drawn, colored by Cliff Chiang

So is that "Gold's" casino a reference to former gambler Booster Gold? I don't know. The last time we saw a Las Vegas casino of the future (in 2019's Old Lady Harley #3), the Booster Gold connection was more clear.

Lonely City gives us no more hints than what we see in those panels, but CBR.com certainly agrees with Rasalonn. Too bad issue #4 is the finale. I hope DC greenlights a sequel just so we can find out for sure.

Thank you, Rasalonn, for bringing this to our attention.
