This week, DC is killing off the Justice League, which is bad for them but good for us because Booster Gold is on the third variant ("CVR D") card stock cover by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund!
Yes, this cover is the rare self-homage, as Jurgens references his own work (inked by Brett Breeding) on the poster accompanying Superman #75 in 1993. (Superman dies once every thirty years, I guess.)
I have no reason yet to suspect that Booster Gold will actually be *in* the book, but *on* a book is good enough for me. Consider buying this comic and making Skeets happy.

If you pay attention to DC's solicitations for upcoming issues, you may remember that the image solicited in October as the cover of Blue and Gold #6 was actually used on the cover to issue #4.
So what will the cover of issue #6 look like? In a word, this:
That's the cover that Lunar Distribution included in its Final Order Cutoff last week for books to be released February 22, which means there is a very high probability that it's what you'll be seeing in your Local Comic Shop in three weeks.
If you like what you see, I recommend a visit to artist Ryan Sook's Instagram, where you'll find this art without trade dress plus previews of some of his interior art.

Today I'm going to tell you to go read someone else's website instead of this one, specifically the blog of Todd Klein.
Todd Klein is perhaps best known as the letterer of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, but knowledgeable Booster boosters will recognize him as the designer of the original 1980s "Booster Gold" logo. You know, the one I shamelessly ripped off for the logo of this here website. This one:
In a recent post, Klein reviewed the covers of Booster Gold volume 1 that have contributions by the legendary letterer Gaspar Saladino. Gaspar was not credited for his contributions at the time, and I have updated the Boosterrific database with Klein's expert information.

Earlier this week, we learned via aiptcomics.com that DC will be revisiting the Flashpoint universe in a seven-issue event called Flashpoint Beyond starting in April.
It remains to be seen what role (if any) Booster Gold will be playing in this event, but we do know that he will be on the 1:50 variant cover to Flashpoint Beyond #0 drawn by Todd Nauck:
Now, a "1:50 variant" means that for every 50 copies a comic shop orders of the regular cover, they *should* get 1 of these. (I say "should" because distribution shortages and allocations have been known to happen.) I suggest that any Booster boosters who wants this in their collection go ahead and preorder 51 copies of Flashpoint Beyond #0 from their their LCS.
But that's not the only variant cover we'll be seeing Booster on in April!
As you may have heard, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that the Justice League will be killed off in April's Justice League #75. (Don't worry too much: comics being what they are, I'm sure they'll get better.)
In a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the "death" of Superman (see what I mean?), one of the many variant covers of Justice League #75 will be drawn by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund and feature many former leaguers, including Booster Gold and two Blue Beetles!
This cover should be easier to get than a 1:50, but we'll have to find out more as we get closer to April.

Latest awesome thing spotted over the weekend on Twitter.com:
This reimagining of the original Booster Gold #1 cover is by Mariano Navarro & Hernan Cabrera. I'm not going to say that I think it's better than the original, but I will say that I *would* buy that comic book.
