Coming Soon: Booster Gold, Vampire Hunter

DC Comics' July 2022 solicitations are due out today, but Michael Doran of Newsarama@GamesRadar has already broken some Booster Gold news, specifically that our hero is going to start hunting vampires this summer.

DC vs. Vampires: All-Out War #1 is a new six-issue "all-you-can-eat buffet of grindhouse mayhem" limited series beginning in July that serves as a companion series to the main DC vs. Vampire series, following the companion one-shots DC vs Vampires: Hunters in May and DC vs Vampires: Killers in June.

"One of the last secret, underground human cities is facing total annihilation and its leader - John Constantine - must plan a suicide mission to assassinate a key lieutenant in the vampire empire!" reads DC's description. "Against unreal odds and with an unlikely team including Booster Gold, Deathstroke, and Mary Marvel, does the Hellblazer have one more trick up his sleeve?"

DC vs. Vampires: All-Out War will be written by Matthew Rosenberg and Alex Paknadel with "monochromatic" black-and-white (!) art by Pasquale Qualano.

It's always cool that Booster Gold gets more spotlight, but if the main DC vs. Vampires mini-series is any guide, most of these characters are just going to die very gruesome deaths at the hands of other fallen heroes. If vampires can turn the likes of Wonder Woman and Superman, I don't much care for Booster Gold's chances. (How did he not see this coming?)

Will Booster be seen anywhere else in the DCU in July, perhaps in a book that isn't so... bloodthirsty? I'll certainly be checking GamesRadar.com for updates later today.

UPDATE LATER TODAY: Whoo, boy, it looks like DC really doesn't know what direction it wants to take its properties this summer. An endless series of Dark Crises, Flashpoints, and multiverses of Superman and mechs and vampires and knights and children.... Maybe I'm just getting too old for this.

On the up side, Booster Gold does appear on the solicited cover for Superman: Son of Kal-El #13 by Travis Moore.

The issue is teased to introduce the television Arrowverse's Dreamer to the DCU (whatever that means anymore), so when it arrives in your Local Comic Shop on July 12, expect it to be a big seller to television watchers who also buy comic books... all 15 of them.

Now get off my lawn.

Blatant Self-Promotion: Dualing Dice Game

I interrupt our regularly schedule for Boosterrific Blog posts to present the following link to the Kickstarter for Dualing Dice, a board game I have been helping to develop. By which I mean I handled graphic design for the project, including box, board, card, and instructions. The concept and rules were created by professional game designer Jimmy Sanders.

Before you follow the link, however, I feel I need to warn my many international readers that shipping of the physical board game is currently limited to addresses within the United States. If you live outside the U.S. and like what you see, we do provide the option for a pdf of the rules and cards that you can use to play the game with your own dice. (Sorry about that. If everything goes well, we hope to correct this limitation in the future.)

Thank you for your consideration. Booster-centric posting will resume at its regularly scheduled time tomorrow.

Coming Soon: Blue and Gold 8

After my post on Friday about upcoming variant covers, DC Comics releases the full slate of April solicitations, including the much anticipated Blue and Gold #8 (of 8)!

BLUE AND GOLD #8
written by DAN JURGENS
art and cover by RYAN SOOK
ON SALE April 19 · $3.99 US

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer! Things have never been easy for Booster and Beetle as they set out on their new business venture where no job is too small, but now a threat from within threatens to bring everything crashing down. A virus has hit the servers at Blue & Gold Restoration, and it could delete our heroes for good!

I love that solicited cover, but it makes me sad to see that the end of the mini-series is near. Could it be doing well enough for DC to give it extra life? I've bought no fewer than 2 copies of each issue, so I'm doing my part! How about you?

You can find all of DC's April solicitations at gamesradar.com.

Just Two of the Guys

Another thing spotted this week on Twitter:

Attention Heroes and Villains, we need your help! Can you identify these two mysterious DC characters who will be joining in the fight against extinction? -- @DCHVGame Twitter.com Nov 29, 2021

I'd say that was supposed to be Booster Gold, Skeets, Jaime Reyes, and Khaji Da (together known as the Blue Beetle), but the tweet explicitly says there are only two "characters" there, so I must be wrong.

Looking at dcheroesandvillains.com, I see that DC Heroes & Villains is a puzzle RPG game (like Puzzle Quest?) being created by JamCity and Ludia for mobile devices that will be released... sometime in the future. Cool. That means I haven't missed anything yet.

I'll have to start paying attention to its progress. Maybe one of these days, they'll finally tell me who those two guys are.

Thanks to Logan Peterson for alerting me that this might interest Booster boosters.

Coming Soon: Blue and Gold 7

DC Comics February solicitations are out, and Blue and Gold #7 (of 8) is on the way!

BLUE AND GOLD #7
written by DAN JURGENS
art and cover by RYAN SOOK
ON SALE February 15 · $3.99 US

Blue & Gold Restoration is up and running, with Booster Gold and Blue Beetle taking on any number of strange cases, from paranormal extremes to lost civilizations, ancient aliens, gateways to other dimensions, and even super-villains looking for help in going straight! But what happens when one of the threats turns out to be an old friend? Guest-starring Jaime Reyes as the Blue Beetle!

It's about time for the two Beetles and Booster to go adventuring together. (I love that Jurgens is really digging into the toybox for this series.)

And while we're on the subject of solicitations, I should mention that Human Target #5 is solicited to feature Martian Manhunter. There's no sign whether we'll also see a Booster Gold appearance, so we probably won't know until that issue is released February 22.

You can find all of DC's February solicitations at gamesradar.com.
