Where Can You Even Find a Phone Booth Anymore?

Blech. I don't know who the characters in this week's Human Target #6 are, but they're certainly no members of any Justice League International that I've ever met before! So let's forget all about them and instead give our attention to a creator who has a better handle on our favorite characters, someone who helped make them our favorite characters in the first place.

Artist Kevin Maguire tweeted this image last week in honor of the Justice League International's 35th anniversary. The drawing has made the rounds of the World Wide Web a time or two already, but it's just too Boosterrific for me not to repost here.

Now that the JLI 35th anniversary passed, I got to thinking what they might look like now and I think they MIGHT look something  like this...#JLI   #JusticeLeague -- @maguirekevin Twitter.com March 8, 2002

I especially love how good Booster Gold looks with white hair and wrinkles. Our hero is far to vain to let a little thing like time dull *his* looks. (It probably helps that his brush with Chronal Leprosy in the 25th century left him practically immortal. [See Booster Gold volume 2 #43 for details.])

Let's not wait so long before our next reunion, old pals.

New Release: Justice League Infinity 7

Thanks to all who wrote in over the weekend to share that Booster Gold (and Blue Beetle) makes a cameo appearance in the preview of tomorrow's Justice League Infinity #7 now online at aiptcomics.com.

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

(Please pardon the brevity of this post, but I was bitten in my forearm by a family dog over the weekend, and I need to minimize the typing right now. At least it's not COVID!)

New Release: Infinite Frontier 4

Looking for Booster Gold content this week? Well, you're in luck! Our hero is on the two-page spread of Infinite Frontier #4:

Ok, technically, that's a hologram of Booster Gold, but that still counts, right? Right?

The highlight of the panel, in my opinion, is Mister Bones' assessment of what/who he considers a threat to the Multiverse.

"Our world is constantly under attack. Often it's people from here."

Booster being included among that group is funny because it's true, or at least it was true for a younger, rasher Booster Gold. Given that neither Old Booster nor Rip Hunter are pictured as known threats, I take this as evidence that Booster's modern, public "screw-up" persona is successfully disguising his "real" work as a protector of the Multiverse. It's a rough job, but somebody's gotta do it.

This is just a cameo appearance, so Skeets will forgive you if you don't buy it. (But if you do chose to buy it, it will make Skeets happy.)

New Release: Justice League Infinity

The Justice League Unlimited returns to your Local Comic Shop today for their first new adventure since 2008 in Justice League Infinity #1.

The issue is co-written by Justice League International scribe J.M. DeMatteis, so you just know there are going to be some old-fashioned Blue and Gold antics.

I say let him eat cake!

Justice League Infinity is only a seven-issue mini-series, but if that's not enough Justice League Unlimited for you, DC has also released a new reprint collection of old JLU comics, Justice League Unlimited: Girl Power. Despite its focus on female heroes, Booster makes small appears in two of the stories in that reprint. Some Booster Gold is always better than no Booster Gold.

Buy either of these books and make Skeets happy!

My Name Is Booster Gold and I'm Here to Say...

Sometimes I need a reminder that the world is full of creative people doing good things, and that's what Ithildyn gave us this weekend. Specifically, we got a link to this video:

Apparently, that's a DC Comics skin mod featuring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle created by CosmicBeetle for a rhythm game called "Friday Night Funkin'" by ninjamuffin99.

I've never been any good at rhythm games (I have two left thumbs), so I'm content to watch the video. If you're the sort who's into playing such things, there are resource links in the video description.

Thanks, Ithildyn.

UPDATE 2021-04-15: Mod creator CosmicBeetle dropped by the comments with a link to the official trailer (also viewable on YouTube), so I've removed the gameplay video I'd originally embedded above. Sorry about that, CB. You've done good work.
