Let's make a whole week out of Dan Jurgens' Twitter feed! I wouldn't normally do that, but Dan has shared some pretty good Booster Gold-related stuff lately, like this tease of the original, unused art from Booster Gold #6 (1986).
A bit of background: Booster Gold #6 was the first telling of Booster's origin story, which was originally tied more closely to the Silver Age Superman mythos. For example, the Space Museum was originally intended to be the Superman Museum, and Booster's Flight Ring was going to be the ring that the Legion of Super-Heroes gave to Superboy. (See my 2010 interview with Jurgens for more details.)
The pages seen in that tweet are very likely the original story, before Jurgens had to change it to work with the new origin that John Byrne was giving Superman in the pages of The Man of Steel. It's super-cool that Jurgens still has them. Maybe one day, he'll let us see the whole thing. (In a Booster Gold Omnibus, maybe?)
And before we sign off for the weekend, here's one more tweet from Jurgens, a Booster Gold sketch commission.
See? Twitter *is* useful for more than just rants and bullying. Thanks, Dan!

Artist Derec Donovan has drawn Ame-Comi Girls and Batman '66 for DC Comics. And now he's drawn Booster Gold, too.
Donovan posted this recent commission on Twitter as @DerecDonovan74. If you like what you see, you might want to know that he's still taking orders for Christmas commissions through December 15.
Good work, Derec.

Something must have been in the air this week as I was emailed by two different people out of the blue who were proud to show off their recent Booster Gold sketch commissions!
First up is from our old friend The Blot, whose magnificent Booster Gold Sketchbook is bulging at the seams. His latest piece is by Invincible artist Ryan Ottley:
Our second piece is shared by Cort, who picked up this sketch commission from the very prolific Leonard Kirk at last years's Fan Expo Vancouver:
Those are some good looking sketches, guys. Thanks for sharing.

Mexican artist Edil Villa has recently uploaded this commissioned piece to DeviantArt.com:
That purple fellow on the left is Kang the Conqueror. For those of you who don't read Marvel Comics, Kang is a time travelling would-be world conqueror who has long bedeviled the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. (Actually, there are a bunch of Kangs from alternate timelines. But that's beside the point.)
I'm pretty sure Booster could take him.

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!
