This Day in History: Dead Ted

Happy Veterans Day!

© DC Comics

If you were a veteran, Booster, they should say thanks for your service.

Veteran comic readers may recognize that panel as coming from Booster Gold, Volume 2, #26. That's the same issue that saw Blue Beetle Ted Kord rise from the dead as part of the Blackest Night crossover.

That book was released ten years ago today. That's more than twice the time between this issue and Ted Kord's death in 2005's Countdown to Infinite Crisis. My how time flies.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, the holiday for spending time with the one you love. Obviously, that means Booster Gold.

To help you out, I present my Essential Booster Gold Reading List:

The Classics
Booster Gold Volume 1 (1986) #1-15
These issues by character creator Dan Jurgens establish everything you need to know about Michael Jon "Booster" Carter: athlete, gambler, thief, hero. All future Booster Gold stories were built on these building blocks.

Blue and Gold
Justice League (1987) #4
Justice League International Volume 1 (1987) #7-9, 25, 32-34
Justice League International Annual (1988) #2
Formerly Known as the Justice League (2003) #1-6
Blue Beetle and Booster Gold are the greatest bromance in DC Comics. Relive their glory days in the "Bwah-ha-ha" era created by Kieth Giffen and J.M DeMatteis.

Time Master
52 (2006) #1-52
Booster Gold Volume 2 (2007) #1-6, 0, 7-10, 1,000,000
Booster Gold's rebirth really began with his lowest moment in 52 #7, but to really appreciate the story, read all of 52, then wash it down with key issues of Booster Gold volume 2 led by Geoff Johns' take on the new Time Masters.

New 52 and Rebirth
Justice League International Volume 3 (2011), #1-12
Action Comics (2018) #993-998
Dan Jurgens returns to refine Booster Gold for the modern, post-Flashpoint DC Universe.

That's not to say that there aren't plenty of other great Booster Gold comics. Once you get through those, consider taking a look at the entire run of Justice League: Generation Lost (2010) #1-24. I also recommend Justice League Quarterly (1990) #1 and Justice League Unlimited (2005) issues #2, 30, and 43, just to name a few.

So this holiday, pour a glass of wine, turn the lights down low, and snuggle up with your favorite comics, Booster Gold comics.
