The Blot's Booster Gold Sketchbook Returns

Thrice before we've seen The Blot's Booster Gold sketchbook commissions. (Here, here, and here.) Now that convention season has returned, so has The Blot!

Aaron Lopresti draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says Neal Adams draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says

From left to right, those sketches are by Aaron Lopresti and Neal Adams (!) commissioned at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, his past weekend. Click on the images to see The Blot's larger pics, or visit the whole sketchbook in much larger detail at The Blot Says' Flickr page. While you're out and about, also consider dropping by The Blot's blog, TheBlotSays.com.

Footnote: via Twitter, The Blot paraphrased Neal Adams as saying it was only the third time he'd drawn Booster Gold. Adams hasn't ever drawn Booster in a DC comic so far as I am aware, so where are those other Neal Adams Booster Gold sketches, hmm?

Hanging Out with Some Old Friends

Yesterday, Ryan in the Boosterrific comments reminded me that I haven't posted any Booster Gold cosplay pics from DragonCon 2013 yet. Let's rectify that today.

JLI cosplay at DragonCon 2013 by dr_archeville and _nerdyblackkid

Booster Golds of all shapes and sizes were at this year's event in costumes running in quality varying from professional to amateur. The costume on the left comes from dr_archeville (more on flickr.com). The costume on the right comes by way of _nerdyblackkid (more on Instagram).

JLI cosplay at DragonCon 2013 by PatLoika

This pic is just one of many in Pat Loika's "Dragon*Con 2013: JLA vs Avengers Shoot" on flickr.com. The staged photo-op featured JLA cosplayers battling Avengers cosplayers at the command of George Pérez. (Booster Gold faced off against Black Knight!) Only at DragonCon....

You can see many, many more pics of the event at the links above. If you want to see video of the JLA fighting the Avengers, check out youtube here or here. (Thanks to Brian Wilder for the links.)

[UPDATE 2013-09-10: Credit where credit is due: that's Pyynk as Booster Gold in the big group shot. You can get a better view of his costume in my coverage of DragonCon 2012 here.]

More from The Blot's Booster Gold Sketchbook

Here Comes Comic Con International 2013

In press releases, DC has bragged that they will have "over 15 panels" at Comic Con International 2013, starting tomorrow in San Diego.

Comic Con International is the premiere comic book convention in America (if not the world!), and it seems like an opportune time for the company to unveil whether there is any truth to the rumor that Booster Gold will be getting another series sometime soon.

If you're going to the convention, have fun. If not, don't worry. I'll let you know if we hear any Boosterrific news this weekend.
