Booster Gold, the Total Package

In addition to being a good source for publisher news and great deals on comics and art, comic book conventions are a great place for fans to get together with other fans and creators and celebrate their heroes. Sometimes, fans go so far as to dress as those heroes. This can lead to awkward situations.

The above autobiographical strip by artist and last week's Boston Comic Convention attendee Erica Henderson illustrates a significant reason why many of us can't, won't, or shouldn't dress like our favorite super heroes in our daily lives. There is a lot of truth in this cartoon.

One of these things is not like the other. The Booster Gold cosplayer on the left won the award for "Best Comic Book Hero Costume Honorable Mention" at BCC 2012. It's a great costume, even if it does suffer from a case of the unmentionables. If nothing else, it reminds us why Booster Gold must look different on television than he does in the comics. That is, unless they can find an actor who is really willing to sacrifice a part of himself for the role.

Artist Erica Henderson hints that she wants to do a 2013 DC beefcake calendar on her blog I Fail At Life, That's Why I Became An Artist. That sounds like something we can give thanks for.
