Thanks to the new, high quality printing of Booster Gold: The Big Fall, it looks like Thor isn't the only Avenger in Booster Gold's friendly neighborhood.
That photographer in Booster Gold #12 sure looks familiar. He doesn't happen to work for the Daily Bugle, does he? Is that you, Peter Parker?
Just how many Avengers did penciller Dan Jurgens hide in the backgrounds and crowd scenes of Booster Gold comics? Let the scavenger hunt begin!

My favorite part of running Boosterrific.com is discovering things I've never seen before in comics that I thought I knew. For example, just this week Ariel Justel dropped by the Boosterrific Facebook page to point out something I must have missed in my two dozen or so readings of Booster Gold, Volume 1, #6:
That's Thor walking through Metropolis' Centennial Park in the background of page 2, panel 1! I thought I had looked pretty hard at these pages, but I never realized that the little blue blob was Marvel Comics' Mjonir-toting God of Thunder until I broke out a magnifying glass to confirm Ariel's sighting.
What other Easter eggs has Dan Jurgens hidden in the original series that I'd never spotted before? Now I have a whole new reason to read my Booster Gold comics! Thanks, Ariel.

Following one of the holiest days of the Christian calendar, perhaps its fitting to give some thought to the spiritual leanings of Booster Gold. In the canon of DC Comics, Booster has openly claimed to be an atheist (in Justice League International Annual #2), though offhand comments made in the years since imply that he may truly be more agnostic. (Never mind for the time being that atheism appears to be a logical fallacy in the DCU, where the personification of the Wrath of God is a member of the Justice Society and an angel is a member of the Justice League.) According to adherents.com, many people have guessed that Booster is a Scientologist. Do the actions of Booster Gold give any clue to his belief system? Or is Booster Gold as spiritually shallow as he would like you to believe?
