If you're starting to feel like tragic events are repeating themselves over and over, you might be a DC Comics reader.
In 1985, the original Crisis on Infinite Earths destroyed the DC Multiverse. Twenty years later, Infinite Crisis revisited the same territory and partially restored the DC Multiverse. Ten years after that, Convergence revisited the same territory and revealed that the DC Multiverse had existed in our hearts all along.
That was 7 years ago today.
It was in the pages of Convergence Booster Gold #2, released May 27, 2015, that we learned that the Booster Gold who appeared in the New 52 Justice League International was not actually the same person who had appeared in two volumes of comics named Booster Gold.
And it was also in the pages of Convergence Booster Gold #2 that the original Booster Gold died and was brought back to life as the newest Waverider.
That happened just in time for Waverider to arrive and help save the day in Convergence #8, also released May 27, 2015. How did he help? By empowering Brainiac, the very same creature who had caused the Convergence in the first place.
The reality created by Convergence lasted barely a year before Doctor Manhattan's tinkering in DC Universe: Rebirth resulted in awkward merging the pre- and post-New 52 realities to create a whole new continuity lying somewhere in between, a reality that has since been revised in Death Metal and is again being challenged in this summer's Dark Crisis.
Like I said, sometimes reading DC Comics is like being caught in a cosmic hamster wheel of trauma, a wheel that seems to be spinning faster and faster the longer we're on it.
However, the important lesson isn't that the multiverse is full of evil. The lesson is that every time evil rears its head, heroes will emerge to fight it.
Such is life in every universe.

If you've been trade-waiting for Booster Gold's Convergence appearances, your time has come at last.
Today sees the release of both the hardcover collection of the entire Convergence mini-series and the softcover Convergence Zero Hour Book One. The latter is a collection of several two-part Convergence mini-series, including Convergence: Justice League International #2 notable for the inclusion of Booster Gold wishing Blue Beetle a happy birthday.
If that's not enough Booster Gold for you, there's more coming. DC will be releasing Convergence TPBs all month. Both issues of Convergence: Booster Gold will be reprinted in Convergence Infinite Earths Book Two at the end of October.

As someone whose hobby is tracking the minutiae of Booster Gold comic books, you can probably guess how I voted.
Last week's poll question: How do you feel about Booster Gold continuity? (48 votes)
Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart poked fun at the many items presidential candidates are selling to drum up support for their campaigns. I instantly thought that Booster Gold could do a better job selling t-shirts and beer koozies than any of the dozen-plus candidates. But does an ability to hawk gewgaws actually make someone a viable candidate for President of the United States of America?
(By the way, no post tomorrow. Even Booster Gold takes a three-day weekend to celebrate American Independence Day!)

Fifty-five voters two weeks ago versus thirty-five this past week. I take that to mean that many of you aren't willing to settle for guest appearances.
Last week's poll question: If Booster Gold still can't get his own book in 2015, which type of guest appearance roles would you most likely support? (35 votes)
We've been told that continuity isn't important in the post-Convergence DCnnU ("DC New New Universe"). How do Booster Gold readers feel about that?

There's a new bad guy in town: Gridlock, the villain who's stuck in the past! And now, he's out to stop the future from coming! Booster Gold, the hero from the future, obviously can't allow that, but when he seeks Bat-Mite's help in finding this purloiner of progress, it doesn't take much of a prognosticator to predict that he's going to regret it.
Booster's first headlining role in the post-Convergence DCU comes courtesy of who else but Booster's proud papa, Dan Jurgens. And look: New Skeets!
UPDATE 2015-06-19: This is the second time in recent weeks I have accidentally let a post go early. I promise to try and be more careful from here on. So if you saw this post yesterday, please forgive this repost.
To make amends, I offer this bonus link to a Dan Jurgens and Corin Howell interview at Comicosity.com about Bat-Mite. The interview is light on Booster Gold references, but not everything can be solid gold, right?
