 Ever-Loving Gold-Eyed Thing

Friday, June 23, 2017

The king of Booster Gold journalism, Russ Burlingame, recently changed his Twitter profile picture from his face to something more Boosterrific. When I asked him about it, he was kind enough to direct me to the original. Behold this Thing!

The Thing as Booster Gold (and H.E.R.B.I.E. as Skeets) by Joel Carroll

This Joel Carroll drawing of Benjamin Grimm and H.E.R.B.I.E. (both of Fantastic Four fame) cosplaying as Booster Gold and Skeets — complete with Kirby Krackle™! — was a commission for Burlingame from his friend.

What else can I say? Russ has some great friends!

You can see more of Joel Carroll's work at JoelCarroll.com .

Matthew Cain recently acquired this commission from artist Jeremey Treece (of "I'm So Goth" web comics and JeremeyTreece.com):

Some great details were definitely lost when I shrank the original scan down for inclusion here, so I recommend you visit ComicArtFans.com to see it embiggened. So much fun!

 Golden Doodle

Here's something a little different:

This manga-style sketch comes from dominodoodle on DeviantArt.com, who declares Booster Gold to be underrated. I couldn't agree more.

 Movie Booster Gold

Friday, May 26, 2017

Booster booster Shawn Baston dropped by comments on Wednesday to say that he'd heard from a reliable source that the next time we see Booster in the comics, his appearance might be influenced by whatever designs the Booster Gold movie will be using.

Given what super hero costumes look like in most movies, that sounds to me like we can expect Booster to be moving out of tights (both his beautiful classic threads and his New 52 duds) and into some black leather akin to what we saw on Smallville or one of the CW's other DC shows.

Or maybe Booster will wear a suit of mechanical armor, 1990s style. Maybe something like this:

Just so we're clear, this fan art has no connection to the movie (so far as I know). It's just a piece whipped up by Brazilian artist jupirata. You can see more of jupirata's superhero redesigns on DeviantArt.com.

 Bow Ties Are Cool

Monday, May 22, 2017

Sometimes cosplay isn't enough. Sometimes you have to bring your favorite heroes into your daily attire. That's what Drake McWhorter did.

Dapper Drake McWhorter

Drake, known as TrailerDrake on Twitter, is a big Booster booster (*ahem*), and now he wears his allegiance to Blue and Gold around his neck. If you like it, you can buy your own from dexlarprice on Etsy.com for a very reasonable price.

(Note these ties are quite different from the Etsy Blue and Gold bows I featured last year, though those were also by dexlarprice.)

I have Booster t-shirts and a hoodie. Has anyone else managed to incorporate Booster into their daily wardrobe? And, yes, visible tattoos count.

On a related note — we are talking about Booster Gold merchandise, right? — has everyone signed George Pooley's petition for those cancelled Blue and Gold DC Collectible figures at Change.org? Spread the word!
