Burning the Candle at Both Ends

Though Heroes in Crisis seems to get all the column width around here, Booster Gold has appeared in two other titles in the past two weeks. Granted, they aren't major appearances, but they shouldn't be ignored.

First up: The Flash #65, as spotted by Shawn Baston.

As you can see, Booster has only a cameo appearance as a face (with the collar!) on the Batcomputer as Batman tries to decipher who else could be working with his enemies. Hmm. Booster Gold has been behaving oddly recently. Could it be...? Nah. Not our Booster.

Secondly: Doomsday Clock #9.

Taking place sometime after the conclusion to Heroes in Crisis, nearly every hero in the entire DC New Universe travels to Mars to confront Doctor Manhattan, who has the power to transform reality and may have killed Superman. We'll have to wait for Doomsday Clock #10 in April to see if our hero survived.

Keep your eyes peeled, everyone. Booster Gold could be anywhere!

Things I Missed (But They Didn't)

I don't expect The Greatest Hero I've Ever Heard Of to show up in any comics this week, but that doesn't mean he won't. Thankfully, Booster Gold has great fans who catch many things that I miss.

For example, Shawn Baston, a Booster booster from way back, writes to tell me that I missed this Booster Gold appearance in last week's The Flash #63.

Also, Kevin Munson writes to tell me that the Boosterrific.com database was missing Booster's appearance in Justice League: 100 Greatest Moments: Highlights from the History of the World's Greatest Superheroes by Robert Greenberger. Published last year, this is the book is a retrospective of Justice League history, and no history of the Justice League would be complete without a recap of the Justice League International years. It is now included under the site's non-comics list of Other Media featuring Booster Gold.

Thanks to Shawn and Kevin. Keep up the good work, everybody. If you see Booster Gold somewhere and you don't think I noticed, please drop me a line either in the news comments or via the Boosterrific.com Contact Form.

This Day in History: Piling On

Martian Manhunter is getting a new mini-series in December that will rewrite the character as something a little more... alien than what longtime DC readers are used to. (DC's solicitation reads: "Back on Mars, J’onn was about as corrupt as a law officer can be, and when a reckoning comes for his entire society, he’ll get a second chance he doesn’t want or deserve!")

I can't say as I'm very eager about that. I happened to like J'onn J'onzz just the way he was.

Take, for example, the Martian Manhunter who appeared in "The Ghosts of Mars," a story running through JLA Classified #42-#46. Written by Justin Gray, the story focused entirely on J'onzz's internal struggle against his own inner demons. Demons that sometimes took the appearance of Booster Gold, as seen in JLA Classified #44, released on this date in 2007.

JLA Classified #44 by Justin Gray, Rick Leonardi, Sean Philips, I.L.L., John Hill

Each of the first four issues of "The Ghosts of Mars" shined a spotlight on a member of the Justice League who inspired Martian Manhunter to new heights of heroism. Ironically in light of recent events in the DCU, the hero of JLA Classified #44 is Wally West, aka The Flash.

Eleven years later, West is dead, Booster Gold is the suspect, and Manhunter is a corrupt cop. Is it any wonder I prefer to read back issues?

No Time for Flash

Booster booster Jackson Williams was reading The Flash #46 and caught this sequence of panels.

The Flash #46, words by Johsua Williamson; art by Scott Kolins, Luis Guerrero

This issue of The Flash was released the week before Batman #47, but the former sure looks like it refers to the latter's meeting between Batman, Catwoman, and Booster Gold. (Which was, by the way, the first time that Booster Gold and Catwoman have ever met on panel.)

Thanks for the update, Jackson.
