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.

Old Release: Justice League 34

It doesn't look like Booster Gold will be appearing in any new books today, but Shawn Baston has caught this Booster appearance in Justice League #34 that slipped past me two weeks ago:

art by Bruno Redondo, color by Hi-Fi

As you can see, Kamandi, the so-called "Last Boy on Earth," has summoned help from across the Multiverse. You'll spot heroes from Earths 4, 5, 12, 22, and 30, just to name a few. Which of these Earths is this Booster Gold from?

Personally, I'd say that looks like the Booster from the Injustice universe, though it's possible that's because the artist of this piece, Bruno Redondo, was also the artist on Injustice 2.

Whoever he is, he looks darn good. I'm sure the Multiverse is now safe.

Thanks, Shawn.

Time Flies When We're Having Fun

Here's something I missed in the run up to Comic-Con: a teaser poster for DC's Year of the Villain event!

You probably can't see him, but Booster Gold is in there, right between Flash and Wonder Woman!

This ad was released online in July and appeared in all DC imprint comics published this week. (Does anyone recognize the artist? Drawn by Nick Bradshaw, inked by Cully Hamner, and colored by Hi-Fi Designs.) It specifically teases the first storyline in the upcoming Batman/Superman #1.

Booster's inclusion here shouldn't come as a surprise, as he had already been linked to the issue in May's DC's Year of the Villain Special. I guess we'll have to buy Batman/Superman #1 — in stores August 28 — to find out if Booster is truly among the "Secret Six" victims of the Batman Who Laughs.

In very related news, Jonathan Reichman pointed out that this week DC announced six new series to tie directly into the Batman/Superman series and four (and counting) Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shots. One of those stories hints bad things for our hero.

Per the press release from DCComics.com:

TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE: INFINITE CRISIS #1
Writer James Tynion IV (Justice League, Justice League Dark) and artists Aaron Lopresti (Wonder Woman) and Matt Ryan (Damage) team up with cover artist Lee Weeks for this dark turn on DC’s mega-event Infinite Crisis. The destruction of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse all began with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle. Kord saw it all coming and died with secrets that could have saved the world. But in the Dark Multiverse, Blue Beetle survives, and with the death of Maxwell Lord by his hand, Ted sets off events that irreversibly alter the lives of not only the Justice League, but also his best friend, Booster Gold. In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the crisis, and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same.

Thanks for warning us that was coming, Jonathan. Let's see if we learn more when DC releases November solicitations (probably next week).

Digging up the Past at Al Baleed

Visit the Historic Port City of Al Baleed

Last week I got a tweet from Brian Miller, who you may know as @hificolor or the colorist on Booster Gold, volume 2.

June 12 — @boosterrific Not comic related, I created art for an archaeological dig. Appreciate if you tweet or blog about it. http://igg.me/at/frankincense

While this isn't strictly comic related, what could be more Boosterrific than a Booster Gold artist trying to raise money through merchandising? Of course I'll blog about it!

Visit Miller's campaign at indiegogo.com to find out where in the world Al Baleed, Oman, is and why anyone should want to be digging there. Contributors who pledge $30 or more to help the archaeological excavation before July 5 will receive a 13" x 19" lithograph (pictured at left) created and signed by Miller.

Get yourself a neat-o piece of art and give to a good cause — science! What more could anyone ask for?

Super Booster Gold Sketch from Phoenix Comicon

Finishing up this week of long-overdue professional fan art posts is this gem coming out of Phoenix Comicon last month. This one I intentionally held it until the end of this week in order to coincide with the annual Superman Celebration now underway in Metropolis, Illinois.

Booster Gold and Superman by Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund, Brian Miller

Jonah Hex is nice, but who could be a better team-up for Booster Gold and Skeets than Superman? Makes you look forward to what might be coming from DC for Booster Gold volume 3.

According to Norm Rapmund, who posted this image to his Twitter media gallery, this bit of art was something that he and Dan Jurgens did "for fun." Jurgens did pencil art that Rapmund finished with inks and Brian Miller (aka Hi-Fi Designs) provided color. What a super team!

You can find a larger, better version of this image (and a pre-colored b&w copy of the inks) at Twitter.com/NormRapmund.
