Believe it or not, Booster Gold's first team adventure didn't take place in his own book or in the pages of Justice League International. No, that honor went to the New Teen Titans, though not with the Titans themselves. Booster was a proud (but brief) member the Teen Titans' rescue squad!
On this day in 1986, Booster appeared in New Teen Titans #29 in response to Magenta's call for help against Brother Blood (who has enslaved the Titans in his bid to overthrow the American government). Also on the team were (clockwise from Booster) Dr. Midnight II, Batman, Magenta, Katma Tui, John Stewart, and Skyman. (Don't recognize most of these people? Don't worry! Three of them will die within a half decade, and a fourth will become a villain.)
This group shot is just a tease for the next issue, in which Superman joins the rescue squad and Booster is relegated to off-panel crowd control. Man, our hero never catches a break! (At least he wasn't killed off!)

I'd even read Secret Wars if it crossed over with Booster Gold.
Last week's poll question: Which inter-company crossover would you be most likely to buy? (47 votes)
No new question today, as the Boosterrific.com Poll is going on hiatus. After recovering a near-disastrous error with the poll database last month, I've begun re-evaluating how I'm handling the poll. Stay tuned for updates.

Last week I asked you to vote at ComicsAlliance.com when I discovered they were polling for characters who needed solo books. We're still waiting to see how that turned out. Meanwhile, this is the question I was going to ask last week before I saw that poll.

Yesterday, a bunch of comic book bloggers posted the work of artist Steve Garcia, who has made a name for himself by turning the silhouettes of our favorite characters into inspirational posters.
I posted Garcia's Booster Gold silhouette back in October, but I didn't want to miss out on all the fun. Click on any of the following links to visit the posts (and maybe find a fun, new comic book blog to follow).

Every year in December, Diabolu Frank of The Idol Head of Diablou spotlights fandom's favorite 3-eyed, fin-headed alien, Despero. This year, Booster Gold joins the salute thanks to the work of a couple of clever fans.
When the classic Kevin Maguire cover of 1987 Justice League #1 looks like this, it's a job for time cop Booster Gold!
This homage by Spanish artist Pablo Alcalde Fernandez can be found on his Deviant Art page, where he posts as PabloAlcaldeFdez. Pablo titled the piece "Before New 52: Booster Gold" and provides the following description:
Booster Gold arrives a parallel Earth, where he find the original Maxwell Lord and the only superhero of that world: Despero. There he find that his supposed hero buddies have become villains, the International Crime Syndicate. From top left to right: Mr. Answer (The Question), Power Girl, Silver Spider (Blue Beetle), Owlman (Batman), Manhunter (Martian Manhunter), Maxwell Lord, Booster Gold and Despero (in Omac suit).
Despero as a One Man Army Corps? Yes, please! In fact, this piece was created to illustrate an Earth-3 story idea (wherein Booster Gold tries to correct history for the Crime Syndicate and rescue the real Maxwell Lord) by Pedro Angosto. You can read the whole pitch on Pedro's site, Hombre de Bronze. (The site is in Spanish, but you can always have Google translate it like I did.)
If you're desperate for some more Despero, consider dropping by these pages today:
See you next year, Despero!
