Enjoy Your Halloween

You probably already have your Halloween costume ready, but just as a reminder, dressing as Booster Gold is always an option.

The above unidentified Booster Gold cosplayer was photographed by Michael Foster at DragonCon 2021. If that's you, let me know so that I can give you credit.

Shattered Feelings

I've been a grouch all week, but it's not all bad news in the world. I mean, DC Fandome version 2.0 is set for tomorrow, and DC is promising us 24 hours of free comics. That's not nothing.

And if Booster Gold fans want even more comic books, you should know that on Wednesday, Newsarama/GamesRadar broke the news that Booster Gold would be appearing in Generations: Shattered #1 in January.

(I said that like you didn't already know it, but you probably did. So many people got in touch to share that Newsarama article, I must have been the last to know. Thanks for keeping me informed, everybody!)

Judging from the article, Generations: Shattered looks to be a $10 anthology book collecting some of the pieces of DC's abandoned "5G" event. The official solicitation hasn't been revealed — and might not be revealed for a while considering that Newsarama says it's coming in January and DC hasn't even released its December solicitations. But we do know that Dan Jurgens is listed as one of the writers, and we did get this look at the sweet cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.

Pay close attention:

Booster hasn't had that shaded star on his costume since Booster Gold #8 in 1986! Could that be an accident? I think not.

Dare we hope that Generations: Shattered will actually revisit Booster's original post-Crisis on Infinite Earths chronology for the first time since... ever? Remember, back in 1986, Booster was living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Ah, the good old days!

Maybe this wasn't such a bad week after all. #CorporateCrusader #BringBackTrixie

What Booster Gold Fans Learned From FanDome

DC's self-contained convention was this past weekend, and while it was a smorgasbord for fans of super hero movies, television, and video games, there really wasn't much news about DC's plans for comic books. And since Booster Gold doesn't exist in any current movies, television, or video games, our hero was nowhere to be found.

The closest we got to Booster was this Easter Egg spotted by the eagle-eyed Ouoya (@Ouoya on Twitter.com) in the Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League video game trailer:

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League is set in the same continuity as Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham series of games. Blaze Comics appeared in Gotham City in Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) and Batman: Arkham Knight (2015).

It's good to know that Blaze is still doing well enough to have a storefront in Metropolis, but you're going to have to wait a while to see it for yourself. Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League isn't scheduled to be released before August 2022.

So maybe that's not the Booster Gold bonanza Booster boosters might have been hoping for, but it's not nothing. And since FanDome was split into two weeks with most of the comics-related content pushed to September 12, we may still hear more about Booster yet.

Thanks for bringing that screenshot to our attention, Ouoya.

Welcome to Convention Season 2020

Nothing about 2020 is normal, and that includes the annual Comic-Con International convention being held this weekend. The in-person event was canceled for public health reasons, but it is now being held in "the comfort of your own home" courtesy of the magic of the Internet. (I hope you have a big couch.)

In honor of the convention's Masquerade cosplay contest, being held virtually tonight on comicconathome.tumblr.com, I present Kevin Bo...oster Gold, aka BoosterGoldNY, who was recently spotlighted in a Q&A at CriticalBlast.com.

BoosterGoldNY as Booster Gold

I recommend that you check out his Instagram, where you'll see him posing with Dan Jurgens among many other great pictures. I think they're pretty Boosterrific.

Happy New Year

Booster booster Blot added another key commission to his Booster Gold sketchbook in 2019, but I'll let him explain in his Twitter post:

My highlight of 2019 was finally getting to meet my favorite comic book creator - and the creator of Booster Gold - Dan Jurgens!!! Plus, I got to introduce my twin boys to him, who are named after Booster, and got this epic commission from him. #BoosterGold #DCComics #DanJurgens @theblotsays Dec 27, 2019

Dan Jurgens draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says

That's awesome, Blot. Congrats.

May everyone have as fortunate a 2020.
