Merry McKelvie Christmas

While we're under "Mc" in the Boosterrific file cabinet, let's celebrate the season with some style.

Batman and Booster Gold celebrate Christmas by Jamie McKelvie

James McKelvie, a professional comic artist, posted his black and white image of Bronze Age Batman and Classic Booster celebrating Christmas with a high-five -- art intended for Booster fan Eddie Argos -- on his tumblr site last January. I added the color for 2011, but I assure you, it doesn't improve on the original.

You can see more of McKelvie's work on his at mckelvie.tumblr.com.

Art Brut-ster Gold

As has been previously revealed by his "Booster Gold" tribute song, Eddie Argos, the rock-and-rolling frontman for Art Brut, is a big Booster Gold fan. How big a fan, you ask? Pretty big.

[Argos is] so obsessed with DC character Booster Gold that he often wears a Booster Gold costume around the house. "It’s quite a nice look for me," he says.

I have no idea how big the Venn diagram of the intersection between indie rock musicians and DC comic book readers is, but it's good to know that the San Francisco Examiner thinks it's worth reporting.

You can read the whole article about Argos and his new comic-influenced album at sfexaminer.com. And if you're in San Francisco tonight and in the mood to rock, Art Brut will be playing at 9PM at The Independent.

Too Busy for Booster Gold

In his latest "Pow! to the People" column endorsing digital comics at playbackstl.com, famed Booster Gold fan Eddie Argos has admitted that he is out of touch with Booster Gold.

For the first time in about 20 years I have no idea what is going on with Booster Gold. I’m about 5 months behind. It feels like there is an empty hole in my life.

Ouch. Can it be any coincidence that about 5 months ago Argos, best known as the lead singer of Art Brut, released a digital album featuring a song about Booster Gold? Hmmm? If there's a lesson here, it's that DC needs to start releasing digital copies of Booster Gold. That, or rock stars are going to be forced to go without comic books. And no one wants that.

DC Fans Love Spoiler Alert!

Two weeks ago, I posted a link to Spoiler Alert! and their single "Booster Gold." It now appears that the song is beginning to spread like wildfire, at least through comic book circles. While typically fire in comic book circles would be a bad thing, I think we can agree this is pretty okay.

Not only is Spoiler Alert! appearing on blogs such as Comics Daily and Geek Native, but the album is being promoted via an interview with singer Eddie Argos on ComicsAlliance.com. In part thanks to the comic book blogosphere, Spoiler Alert! is now currently the number 1 viewed, shared, and -- most importantly -- selling album on Corporate Records UK website. How's that for peer pressure?

And It Looks Like He's Always Glowing

Musician Eddie Argos and his pals have created a song about Booster Gold:

"Booster Gold" is just one of the 3 tracks on Spoiler Alert!. (The other two tracks are "Batman" and "Blue Beetle.") More details about the album are available on Argos' Blog, The Eddie Argos Resource. But if you like what you hear, just head directly to Corporate Records UK to purchase the track -- or the entire album.
