An April Full of Fools

I hope you enjoy Booster Gold's team-up with DC's omnipresent femme fatale, Harley Quinn, in March's previously-solicited Harley Quinn #71, because the team-up will be continuing this April.

Per the issue solicitation at Newsarama.com:

© DC Comics

HARLEY QUINN #71
written by SAM HUMPHRIES
art by SAMI BASRI
cover by GUILLEM MARCH
Some mysteries just don’t want to be solved! As Harley digs deeper into the death of her friend, it becomes clear that there are forces in Los Angeles that don’t want her this close to the truth. Will Harley be broken by the City of Angels, or will she be able to avenge her friend’s death? And will she be able to convince Booster Gold that he is not her crime-fighting partner and never will be?
ON SALE April 1, 2020 · $3.99 US

That soliciation text.... I'm choosing to believe that it's a joke, and that Booster doesn't really want to be the sidekick of the nutcase who tried to kill him in the pages of Heroes in Crisis.

I guess we'll find out the truth this April Fools Day.

Year in Review 2019

In my ongoing efforts to make Boosterrific.com the best blog it can be, I find it useful to look back at which posts over the previous year made the biggest splashes with readers. Here, in descending order, are the 5 most read blog posts of 2019:

5. Friday, May 3: No Laughing Matter
In which we wonder if Booster Gold might play a role in the "Batman Who Laughs" story in coming issues of Batman/Superman. We now know the answer: he doesn't.

4. Monday, August 19: New Heroes of the Millennium
In which we get a good look at Bryan Hitch and Alex Sinclair's combined covers for Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium. Booster Gold, front and center!

3. Monday, April 29: Statler and Waldorf in Blue and Gold
In which I shared fan art by Neil R. King of the two best Muppets cosplaying as Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. That's not something you see every day. (Thank goodness!)

2. Monday, December 16: Why Don't They Just Get Married Already
In which we learn that Booster Gold will be returning to the pages of Harley Quinn in March 2020. People just love that Harley Quinn.

1. Monday, March 25: Was DC Looking to Boostle?
In which we learn that Check Please! creator Ngozi Ukazu came surprisingly close to working on a Blue+Gold Boostle comic for DC. We got Heroes in Crisis instead.

See you in 2020.

Why Don't They Just Get Married Already

A "fictionalized" Booster Gold showed up at the end of Harley Quinn #66 in part to satisfy the title's obligatory "Year of the Villain" crossover event.

The next month, in Harley Quinn #67, faux Booster returned as justification for a trip through the DC Universe's never-ending series of "Crisis" events. (Was this the same "fictionalized" Booster seen in the previous issue, or a different interpretation? It's impossible to tell, so assume whatever you like.)

Finally, this March, it looks like the "real" Harley and Booster will finally cross paths for the first time since Heroes in Crisis.

Per the issue solicitation at Newsarama.com:

HARLEY QUINN #71
written by SAM HUMPHRIES
art by SAMI BASRI
cover by RILEY ROSSMO
Harley thought a little trip to Los Angeles would help her cope with grief, but grief followed her all the way to the West Coast. When a new friend of hers dies, she knows in her heart there is foul play at work. She’ll have to put down her mallet and pick up a magnifying glass to prove her friend was murdered. And will Booster Gold help her investigation or only hinder it?

Attention DC: you had me at Skeets on the cover.

Thanks to Rob Snow for alerting me to this coming event.

New Release: Harley Quinn 67

I'm not going to lie and tell you I understand what was happening between Booster Gold and Harley Quinn in last month's Harley Quinn #66. I have even less idea what's going on in today's Harley Quinn #67.

What I do know is that with art by Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund, and Hi-Fi, it's going to look great.

Harley's right. Martian Manhunter's funeral was in second issue.

If you want to see more, Batman-News.com has the preview.

Thanks to Rob Snow for that news.

By the way, since you're already on your way to your LCS, consider looking on the back issue racks for the most recent issue of Action Comics. The variant "DCeased" cover to issue #1016 included a zombiefied Booster Gold. I missed that when the issue was released 2 weeks ago. Thankfully, Logan Peterson didn't. Good spot, Logan.

Buy these issues and make Skeets happy.
