Take heart, Booster boosters! Cort Carpenter has filled the gap of new Booster Gold art this week by sharing with us his latest sketchbook commissions.
By my count, Cort has now shared with us more than 67 pieces of commissioned Booster Gold art (many of which you can see larger on Cort's Twitter and imgur accounts). I don't know how he affords them all. Maybe he's a secret billionaire. All the best superheroes are, you know.
In his email, Cort teased the possibility that he may have as many as five new commissions to share with us before the end of the year. I think you'll agree that gives all Booster boosters something to look forward to.

On Wednesday, I showed you this panel created by Steve Lieber for the June 2021 issue of Teen Titans Academy #4:
Seeing that panel, Cort Carpenter realized that the Booster Gold headshot looked incredibly similar to one he had commissioned from Lieber last year (previously shared with Boosterrific.com on October 19, 2020):
They do look alike, don't they? My first impression was that Cort's commission was a study used for the new work, but closer inspection makes it clear that Lieber used his earlier black and white commission as the foundation for the new piece of digital art. Just to make it clearer, here's a gif of the two pieces overlaid:
Isn't that cool? You can even see where Lieber erased his signature when adding color. Cort's commission is now a piece of original comic art. How often does that happen?

Lots of great fan art for us this week from Cort Cartpenter, who has always been kind enough to share his Booster Gold sketchbook with us. Here are his latest commissioned pieces:
Thanks, Cort! Boosterrific as always. I look forward to the next batch.

Booster booster Blot has found a tattoo that is the definition of "Boosterrific." Click the image to be taken to the video on Instagram.com.
Amazing work. And kudos to Eric Schwarz or anyone else who is a committed enough Booster Gold fan to have our hero tattooed on their body. That's really wearing your heart on your sleeve!
You boosters keep sending me the best links. Thanks, Blot!

Over the weekend @preyofbirdsdc tweeted what may be David Marquez's cover for September's Justice League #68. Whether that is true or not — we'll probably find out for sure when DC releases September solicitations in 2 weeks — the important part is who's pictured in it.
You see them there? No, not Fire and Ice there in the middle. (Hi, Fire! Hi, Ice!) Over to the side, just over smirking Batman's shoulder: it's Blue and Gold!
If it turns out this *is* the cover for Justice League #68, I guess that means I'll be buying at least one Justice League comic this September.
(Special thanks to @dailybluegold for highlighting our heroes in this art.)
