 It Is Whatever You Think It Is

Friday, April 21, 2017

Unless explicitly intended otherwise, most one-shot issues should probably be considered outside of continuity. That's sort of what "one-shot" implies.

Last week's poll question: Was Booster Gold/Flintstones in continuity? (55 votes)

Was <em>Booster Gold/Flintstones</em> in continuity?

I'm glad I asked this question. I'm surprised how few of you actually consider this to be in continuity. It's always good to know what the fans are thinking.

That said, I still see nothing to prevent the issue's story from taking place in modern DC continuity. Given that there's no indication in DC's July solicitations that we'll be seeing Booster Gold again any time before August (at the earliest), it looks like the publisher is in no hurry to prove this story wasn't in continuity. Therefore, I'm going to classify it as such here on Boosterrific.com.

(What is or is not in continuity is always in flux. For examples: Batman: Son of the Demon, Watchmen, and anything that DC published prior to Crisis on Infinite Earths. If you're a fan long enough, everything will come and go and come back again. Even Extreme Justice.)

 Set in Flint-Stone

Friday, April 14, 2017

I hope everyone enjoyed Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special #1 as it looks to be the last time we'll see Booster Gold in the DCU for a while.

But was the Special really in continuity? It's not entirely clear. Taking place outside of continuity doesn't make the book any less enjoyable. However, as the chronicler of Booster's adventures, I'd sure like to know whether or not you think it should be considered within continuity (and which continuity that might be).

This week's poll question: Was Booster Gold/Flintstones in continuity? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.

 New Release: Meet the Flintstones

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Booster Gold is finally back in comic stores after a two year hiatus! And we finally have a definitive answer to last month's debate over what piece of art Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund, and Brian Miller were working on.

Gee, that star sure looks familiar.

Those wonderful people over at CBR.com have an 11-page preview. Eleven pages! Fortunately, it's a 48-page comic.

The preview certainly raises plenty of continuity questions for our favorite Chronal Crusader, but that's to be expected for any character who has missed two continuity reboots. Before anyone freaks out (and I'm probably talking to myself here), keep in mind that this is our first look at post-Rebirth Booster Gold.

What are you doing still reading this? Go buy your copy of Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual Special #1 now! Heck, there are two covers, each featuring Booster Gold, so buy two!

 Putting a Bow on It

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Those of you who follow Boosterrific on Facebook have already seen this, but for those of you who don't, Brian Miller of Hi-Fi Designs posted this yesterday:

To recap: First Dan Jurgens tells us that he's drawing "BG". Then Norm Rapmund says he's inking someone with a star on his chest who isn't Captain America. And now Hi-Fi designs removes any lingering doubt. This is definitely a Booster Gold cover.

Jurgens, Rapmund, and Hi Fi were the art team for most of the late, lamented Booster Gold Volume 2. Isn't it nice to have the band back together?

If you'd like to reward Miller for sharing the image with us, consider donating to his Kickstarter campaign for the Femme Mystique graphic novel. Good luck, Brian.

 Wrapping It Up

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Today's post is going to be old news for a lot of you, but after my rant yesterday, I felt compelled to run this today.

Via Twitter, Norm Rapmund has provided a critical clue about the "BG" art Dan Jurgens teased last week:

Finishing up a cover with @thedanjurgens & its turning out awesome! Its a character with a star on his chest.. Its not Captain America. Lol -- Norm Rapmund 2017-02-12

Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund working together again is great news, but it's not unexpected. When DC released the April solicitation for Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual #1 back in December, the solicitation included this line:

Variant cover by DAN JURGENS and NORM RAPMUND

So although neither Jurgens nor Rapmund told us why they're collaborating on a cover featuring Booster Gold, I think we can put two and two together.

Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual #1 will go on sale on March 29 with a $4.99 cover price. The standard cover is by Mike Allred and will also feature Booster Gold, so bring $10!

Thanks to bennibeard for linking to Rapmund's tweet in the Boosterrific Forum.
