The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine is out just in time for Comic Con and includes Chancellor Agard's interview with Tom King about many things, but especially his plans for Heroes in Crisis:
EW: Based on the cover, it looks like Booster Gold and Harley Quinn will play a big role in Heroes in Crisis. Why did you pick those two characters?
King: They're the two stars of the book along with the Trinity. I do this comic called Mister Miracle, which I really like. The way Mister Miracle started was me going to [co-publisher] Dan DiDio and asking him, "I want to do something amazing with a character, but you have to give me some room to do some stuff, and you pick the character." He picked Mister Miracle and that's how that started. It's unoriginal, but I wanted to repeat that success. So when I came up with this Heroes in Crisis idea, I went back to Dan and said, "Can we do this again? Give me two heroes, I’m going to put them through the ringer and at the end we’re going redefine them to be central to the DCU, pillars of this universe." And the two he gave me were Booster Gold and Harley Quinn. I think they're perfect because they’re almost two sides of the same coin. They're both, like, these manic dreamers who have made huge mistakes and come back from them. They're kind of these survivors.
I'm not sure I like the idea of Tom King "redefining" Booster Gold, but "pillar of this universe" sounds nice.
You can read the rest of the interview online at EW.com or in the magazine on newstands now. Heroes in Crisis will be in comic shops everywhere on September 26.

"DC Nation" used to be a weekly column in DC comics. Now, it's a once-a-month promotional magazine. Issue #2 came out last Wednesday, and it featured this ad for Heroes In Crisis.
Which THREE of these characters will be accused of murder?
Which TWO of these characters will be murdered?
Which ONE of these characters will be revealed as a murderer?
The characters we get to choose from are Arsenal, Atom, Beast Boy, Booster Gold, Catwoman, Cyborg, Damage, Deathstroke, Flash (Wally West), Green Arrow, Harley Quinn, John Constantine, Kyle Rayner, Lex Luthor, Mr. Terrific, Nightwing, Poison Ivy, Red Robin, Riddler. Superman, and Wonder Woman.
I'm not sure how surprising this is supposed to be. Two of the three accused (Booster and Harley Quinn) were revealed in the initial series announcement. Several of these are already known murderers. So the biggest question might be who's going to die?
Our fingers are crossed, Booster Gold.

The fans have spoken.
Last week's poll question: What is your reaction to the news that Tom King will be writing Booster Gold as a murder suspect in the HEROES IN CRISIS mini-series? (72 votes)
A majority of respondents in the poll are clearly unenthusiastic about Tom King's announced plans for Booster Gold. Maybe things will turn out well for our hero. Maybe he'll save the multiverse and get his own series. It's happened before.
I guess we'll find out whether our hopes and fears are founded this September.

You won't find a new Booster Gold comic in your Local Comic Shop this week.
In fact, we probably won't get a new Booster Gold comic until July 18, when Injustice 2 #30 comes out. We'd better start enjoying those Injustice comics while they last. DC's September solicitations came out Monday, they and they imply a "tragic conclusion" to Booster's current storyline. Gulp.
The September solicitations also tell us that "The Gift" will be reprinted in Batman Volume 7: The Wedding in October. The trade will include a reprint of Batman #50, the much-hyped wedding issue, so it's likely it will sell a lot of copies. Expect to see it in your LCS on October 24.
And of course, Heroes in Crisis #1, in which Booster Gold is a "prime suspect" in the killing of "many" PTSD patients, will be out on September 26.
You can read all of the September solicitations on Newsarama.com.

I've noticed that Dan Jurgens has been publicly silent about Tom King's recent reinterpretation of Booster Gold. However, Booster's creator did recently speak up about Clay Mann's pencil art for the upcoming Heroes in Crisis mini-series.
That's an endorsement of sorts.
Despite the pretty art, I'm still not any more optimistic about Heroes in Crisis than I was last week. But I'm perfectly willing to admit that I'm a hard-to-please blowhard. Maybe it's time to hold a finger to the wind and test which way public opinion is blowing on this thing.
