New Release: Dark Crisis 5

AIPTComics.com has a preview of this week's Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #5. Booster Gold's not in that preview, but it doesn't really matter because he (and Skeets) is one of the many covers:

Is it just me, or does it look like Blue Beetle is wearing a 10-gallon hat?

For the record, when you go to your Local Comic Shop, you'll want to ask for the "Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 Cover B Ivan Reis & Danny Miki card stock variant."

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

Coming Soon: Stay on Target

I was looking through DC's December solicitations at ComicsBeat.com this weekend when I spotted the 1:25 retailer incentive variant cover by Jeff Spokes for Human Target #10 featuring the Justice League International:

That's the only revealed cover coming in December with Booster on it. And I might consider buying it... if I can't get the regular edition with stunning Greg Smallwood art showcasing G'Nort for 1/5 the price. (Sorry, DC, but I'm not made of money. Have you seen how much comic books cost these days?)

The solicitations don't make it clear if Booster is inside any of the books, but Dan Jurgens will be handling some art on the Dark Crisis follow-up, Big Bang #1, so maybe there. We'll find out when the book comes to your Local Comic Shop on December 13.

New Release: Dark Crisis 4

As you probably know by now, Booster Gold does make a small cameo appearance in this week's Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #4.

Seeing that panel reminded me of another time Booster and Beetle had to save some someone from a tornado, specifically the Red Tornado in Justice League Unlimited #13 (2005).

Of course, that's hardly the first time that Red Tornado ran amok. Booster and Beetle first teamed up against him in Captain Atom #16 (1988). But he wasn't creating tornadoes, then. He was creating hurricanes. So totally different thing.

I guess the point here is that if there's a disaster, natural or otherwise, you can count on Booster Gold and friends to help out.

Suggested Reading

I hope everyone has awesome Labor Day plans, so I'll keep this brief.

Booster Gold may or may not be in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #4 this week. He's not in the preview at aiptcomics.com. He wasn't in issue #2, so maybe Booster is taking the even-numbered issues off.

UPDATE 2022-09-06: Nope, he's in there, smiling away in a one-panel cameo appearance on page 6.

Booster probably isn't in Flashpoint Beyond #5 this week, but Rip Hunter's pre-Flashpoint Time Masters definitely are, as is Rip Hunter's secret time laboratory and future-teasing chalkboard. All of those things are visible in the preview at aiptcomics.com, which also seems to provide some spoilers to the ending of Dark Crisis, so beware.

Booster is almost guaranteed not to be in New Champion of Shazam #2, but I recommend you take a look at it anyway. I bought the first issue last month, and I loved it. What can I say? I'm a sucker for Hoppy the Marvel Bunny, especially when drawn by Doc Shaner. Some comics can be good even without Booster Gold.

Thank you for your consideration. I now return you to your regular scheduled holiday.

New Old Release: Dark Crisis 1 Second Printing

DC released the second printings of Dark Crisis #1 through #3 this week with the series' new title, Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths.

I'm certain that Booster Gold is in that book's story. What I can't yet say for certain is whether he is on that cover.

He is on the back of that Daniel Sampere wraparound cover of the less "Infinite" first printing, and he'll be on the back of the third printing this October with the original Crisis on Infinite Earths-inspired title logo pictured here:

But the question remains, does the second printing use both sides of the Sampere wraparound cover? The solicitation text isn't clear, and sadly, try as I might, I can't flip over any of the digital images I can find online to see the back.

So if anyone discovers a copy at their Local Comic Shop and can definitively answer the most important question of our times, please let me know so that I can update Boosterrific.com accordingly. Thank you!

UPDATE: Joe Carlo, owner or Monday's awesome gif, has confirmed this is also a Boosterrific wraparound cover. Thanks, Joe!
