DC has been doing their part in COVID-19 pandemic messaging by including "social distancing" PSAs in their comics and shipping posters to comic shops. It's an admirable incentive to get important information to superhero fans, but I think their choice of spokespersons could use some improvement.
One poster features Superman and Wonder Woman playing tug o' war. As much as I admire their wisdom, they aren't the pair I would pick to pose for an anti-virus PSA. He's invulnerable and she's immortal. Their unique talents are better used preventing authoritarian armies from trampling peaceful protesters than preaching to the public about the dangers of airborne pestilence particles.
Another poster tries again with Batman and Robin. Two of the things that Batman is most famous for are 1) not being much of a hugger, and 2) never wearing a mask over his mouth. He might the world's greatest detective, but a reclusive man who dresses like a mouth-breathing flying rat is probably not the guy we need leading the charge of a public education campaign.
While I applaud all those heroes' good intentions, I think if you want to sell people on the importance of maintaining a six-foot halo to impair the spread of communicable disease, the spokespersons you need should be both vulnerable and relatable. And a healthy sense of humor would certainly help their delivery.
Hmm. Do we know any heroes who fit that bill? You bet we do!

Fixed it for you, DC.
Do what Booster and Beetle say. They've only got your best interest at heart.

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.

I wasn't sure what I was going to post today until I spotted this Booster Gold (and Skeets!) commission from Mike Henderson on ComicArtFans.com:
The piece is clearly dated 2014, but owner Michael "Off White" White just posted it online earlier this month. Thanks to Michael for sharing this gem!

We opened the week looking at how fans draw Booster Gold. Let's close with a peek at how Booster's creator does it.
This Dan Jurgens' sketch of Booster (and Skeets!) was commissioned by Martin Taing who uploaded it to ComicArtFans.com. Thanks for sharing your Boosterrific art, Martin.

Matthew Cain recently acquired this commission from artist Jeremey Treece (of "I'm So Goth" web comics and JeremeyTreece.com):
Some great details were definitely lost when I shrank the original scan down for inclusion here, so I recommend you visit ComicArtFans.com to see it embiggened. So much fun!
