I was working on something else to post here today, but I ran out of time (or, more accurately, I overloaded on work).
In any event, by way of apology, I'm going to lean on Booster booster Cort, who recently added this piece, drawn by his friend, Julius-LZL, to his Booster Gold commission sketchbook:
This scene is a re-imagining of Booster Gold's first meeting with Doomsday, originally presented in Justice League America #69. If it had gone down this way in 1992, today we'd probably be calling Doomsday "Cupcake."
Thanks for bailing me out, Cort (especially since you didn't know that's what you'd be doing).

No Booster Gold comics this week, but Cort has come to our rescue with new entries in his Booster Gold sketchbook!
Let's take a peek inside (with Cort's commentary):
Got this beauty from Brett Booth. The staggering detail in the background is awesome. Beetle being hidden in there made me laugh.
A Bart Sears Booster commish I got for supporting the Hero Initiative, also got to chat with Sears, it was pretty rad.
A wicked and stylish, smug, and funny Booster from Yale Stewart of JL8 fame.

Cort's back with more Booster Gold sketchbook pages! He writes
These are a fun and varied mix of styles so it was nice to add them all to my collection. Which is now 59 pieces large! 2020 has had a lot of downs and twists and turns, but it has been fruitful for having artists open their lists for mail-in commissions, and I've been very lucky and very grateful for that.
Way to find the bright side of everyone being stuck at home without regular jobs in 2020, Cort! (And we're grateful that you shared your luck with us.)

I was having a particularly bad week — which makes me no different than 90% of the global population this unendurable 2020 — when I received a pleasantly unexpected email from Cort Carpenter with a new batch of Boosterrific sketches from his Booster Gold sketchbook.
... and another by Dave Stokes
And one by Cort himself!
Good timing, Cort. It's hard to feel down while looking at that many smiling faces.
You can see these and many, many more at Cort's online Booster Gold sketchbook on imgur.com.

When I walked into my Local Comic Shop and asked for Booster Gold: Future Lost, the guy behind the counter said, "No offense to Booster Gold, but who's going to pay $40 for that?" I would hope a lot of people.
Since I didn't manage to get a copy myself yet — not the fault of the guy behind the counter; his DC distributor has been shipping late — here instead I present a couple of pics of the book (beside last year's first volume, Booster Gold: The Big Fall) shared on Twitter.com by Cort Carpenter:
Oh, I've never been so eager to part with $40!
When you make your trip to a fine comics retailer near you for your copy, you may also want to take a look at Strange Adventures #5. Booster doesn't show up in person, but he does get a name drop from series star Adam Strange:
Art by Mitch Gerads, fightin' words by Tom King
Golly, that Tom King really doesn't care much for Booster Gold, does he?
Buy Booster Gold: Future Lost and make Skeets happy.
