Booster booster Gio3432 was shopping for comics for his 3 year old, and look what he found in the back pages of this week's Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #9:
This primer on Booster Gold is part of a two-page spread introducing new readers to the heroes and villains of the DC Universe. (Gorilla Grodd is on the facing page.) Says Gio:
Scooby-doo teamed up with Superman and a Booster Gold appearance! My Kid is going to have extremely high expectations of comics from this point on.
Let this be a lesson to all of us. Keep your eyes pealed, because you never know where you might find a little bit of Gold!

Yesterday BleedingCool.com set our hearts atwitter by suggesting that Booster Gold might be part of DC's latest Universe relaunch. (I guess the last one didn't take?)
The relaunched rumor became the news of the
day week month on the Boosterrific Forum, where many hands were wrung in anguish that the latest Booster reboot may lead to a "grimmer and grittier" interpretation of the character.
This is where I, as the chronicler of all things Booster Gold, remind you that we've been here before. In fact, it was 19 years ago today that DC published Extreme Justice #0, the first issue in what was intended to be a grimmer and grittier, pro-active Justice League.
Extreme Justice is infamous as the apex — or nadir, depending on your point of view — of DC's 1990s artistic excesses. I'm not going to defend the book. I think it speaks for itself:
Uh, yeah. Maybe some things are best left in the past.
(Thanks to Gio3432 and CaptainHeq for spreading the news in the Forum.)

Booster booster Gio3432 has called me to the carpet for not posting Booster's name drop in last week's Justice League of America #5. MetalWoman had referenced it in the Boosterrific Forum, and I guess I thought that was good enough. But Gio is right, I should have posted the relevant panel here in the Boosterrific Blog, too. To make up for my error, here is the panel:
This is the second name check Booster has gotten in the pages of JLoA so far. (The last time was in issue #1.) How many more until we actually see Booster Gold in an issue?
There have been 2374 blog entries since January 2010.
