Marc Buxton interviewed Dan Jurgens for Den of Geek! last week and asked some pretty good questions about Jurgens' career. Of note to Booster Gold fans was how Dan feels about various eras in Booster's history.
Buxton: When you aren't writing Booster, did you follow his adventures? What do you think were some of the character's highs and lows?
Jurgens: I certainly followed Giffen's Justice League stuff with Booster, and ended up writing that book myself for a while, which gave me the chance to do Booster again.
In general, anything that keeps the character in the public eye is a positive, though I think it all got a bit too absurd at times.
Strange thing is that fans constantly clamored for a Blue and Gold/Blue Beetle Booster Gold book, yet it never happened. Nor will it, now that we’ve moved on to the New 52. That was an opportunity lost.
Buxton: Why was JLI canceled? Can you give us insight to what was to come?
Jurgens: I think they wanted to remold the JLA franchise a bit overall. Because JLI was a standalone book, I think they felt that the only real connection was the name. We kicked around the idea of a title change a bit, but they decided to cancel it.
I've always felt that was a bit short sighted. Had we continued, I'm quite confident that a year later we would have had higher sales than a lot of books they ended up keeping and trying to save.
Enlightening. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. If you have any interest in Dan Jurgens' 30-year career, visit denofgeek.us and give it a read.

Mike Cecchini spoke to Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Phil Klemmer at Comic Con, and somehow he got this quote:
"[Andrew Kriesberg's Booster Gold television series]'s not dead, but it is not..." [Klemmer] caught himself. "I don't know. But it's not dead."
To recap: SyFy optioned a Booster Gold pilot from writer Andrew Kriesberg and Berlanti Production back in 2011. There was a lot of back-and-forth about the status of the script, no pilot was ever ordered, then news about the status of the teased series dried up as first Arrow then Flash took off on the CW Network.
So what does this new information mean? Go check out the full article at DenOfGeek.us and decide for yourself.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game released in 2013. It features many DC Universe characters from across the Multiverse and pits them against one another in Mortal Kombat style battles. The biggest flaw with that game is that it didn't include everyone's favorite characters.
Gavin Jasper of DenofGeek.us gives a list of the top ten characters he hopes to find in the inevitable sequel. Guess who tops the list?
To put it plainly, Booster Gold needs to be in Injustice 2 because he would be the Johnny Cage of the game. In fact, to this day, it bugs me that we never got Johnny Cage vs. Booster Gold in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. He's a charismatic character with enough unique aspects to his fighting style (time travel, force fields, and football robot buddy) who could mean all kinds of things for a story like this.
I'm with Gavin. Add a little Booster Gold, and you've got yourself a sale!
