It's Not You, It's Me

It sounds a stupid thing to type out loud, but I'm having a hard time mustering enthusiasm for posting about Booster Gold.

It's not Booster's fault. I'm having a hard time mustering enthusiasm for just about anything right now.

Independence Day happens to be my favorite holiday, so I'm just going to take an extended weekend off and hope that the spirit of John Adams will reinvigorate me. (He always had a knack for mustering enthusiasm, that John Adams.)

While I'm on leave, if you're in need of some Boosterrific entertainment this weekend, perhaps you'll enjoy the recent JLUCast podcast on the topic of the undisputed greatest Justice League Unlimited episode, "The Greatest Story Never Told," starring one Booster Gold. I must admit that I haven't mustered the enthusiasm to listen to it myself, but I trust Shag and company over at The Fire and Water Podcast Network to do good work.

Enjoy your weekend.

Fire and Water and Blue and Gold

Last Sunday, the Fire and Water Podcast Network's JLI Podcast released a new episode in which the Irredeemable Shag interviewed Dan Jurgens and discussed Blue and Gold.

I... haven't listened to all of it yet. I mean, I did hear the part about the sponsor,, having the Booster Gold volume 1 hardcover collections on sale for 45% off. (Just in time for Christmas!) That part was pretty good.

But I seriously do have the utmost faith in both Shag and Dan, and I don't think you should have to wait for me to find the time to finish it before I inevitably recommend the episode to Booster boosters everywhere.

If you are better at managing your time than I am, you can listen to the podcast at

New Beard for Batman

Earlier this week via Twitter, Tony Daniel revealed that the cover for Batman 46 has been changed from the cover solicited. I have to say, I like the new cover much better. Just look at the crazy thing happening here:

No, I'm not talking about gun-toting Batman or Batman Returns Catwoman. I only have eyes for Booster Gold's beard!

Facial hair is a rarity for Booster. It's certainly not something that Shag and Rob mentioned when they covered the character's vitals in their recent Fire and Water Network "Who's Who DC Universe Podcast." They're pretty thorough, though, so I'm sure they'll correct that oversight when they get around to doing the "Update '18" podcast.

To find out why Booster has grown a beard, I guess we'll all have to buy Batman #46 when it hits our Local Comic Shops on May 2.

Booster Gold in the Fire and Water Podcast

Rob Kelly of Aquaman Shrine and The Irredeemable Shag of Firestorm Fan turned the latest The Fire and Water Podcast into an hour-long interview with Dan Jurgens, who takes over as writer and artist for Fury of Firestorm starting with issue #13 next week.

Of course, there can be no discussion with Dan Jurgens that doesn't touch on his greatest creation, Booster Gold. For an interview ostensibly about Firestorm, Rob, Shag, and Dan mention Booster Gold surprisingly frequently. (We all know that Firestorm just isn't as interesting as Booster Gold.)

Jurgens discusses how he came to work on Booster Gold in the first place, his interaction with Booster Gold cosplayers, and how he had to adapt Booster Gold for the New 52.

Jurgens: "I don't think that Booster Gold had to change, because he was still fairly true.... Booster was still very consistent, on model with his basic beginnings."

If you're a fan of Firestorm, Dan Jurgens, or comic book artists in general, consider dropping over to and give a listen.

Giving Thanks for Fire and Water

Since we celebrate Thanksgiving this coming Thursday, let's start early by thanking Shag of Firestorm Fan and Rob of The Aquaman Shrine for mentioning in their most recent Fire and Water Podcast.

Boosterrific -- mentioned at almost exactly the one-hour mark -- was one of the many, many DC character-centric sites that the pair listed in the second half of the 2-hour recording. (The first half of the recording is dedicated to a lively discussion of the 1982 Justice League of America/All-Star Squadron "Crisis on Earth-Prime" story.)

So if you like Aquaman or Firestorm or any other DC character, you can probably find directions to the site of your dreams in this podcast. And that just might give you reason to say "thanks," too!
