Free copies of DC Nation #3 arrived in your Local Comic Shop (and on Comixology) last week. There were several pages promoting Heroes in Crisis, but very little previously undisclosed information was delivered. However, we did get this house ad for DC Nation #4:
Hmm. What can we glean from this illustration?
At last month's Comic-Con, Dan DiDio and Tom King teased that one of the two much discussed "deaths" of Heroes in Crisis will be a Flash, who is conspicuously absent from this ad. Is the other doomed hero one of these characters? I still hope it's not Booster!
I'd be remiss in my duties as unofficial chronicler of Booster's official chronicles if I didn't make note that the art for this piece — a future Heroes in Crisis cover? — was drawn by Brad Walker and inked by Andrew Hennessy. So far as I'm aware, this is the first time either has illustrated Booster Gold. Comparatively, colorist Jason Wright is an old hand, having colored Booster appearances twice before!
Perhaps DC will be willing to spill some more details in the next issue. They'll have time. DC Nation #4 is scheduled for a September 5 release, whereas Heroes In Crisis #1 won't be available until September 26.

Now I've gon ad-crazy. In addition to the Booster Gold Volume 1 ads I mentioned last Friday, I'm now also looking for ads from May 1991 for Armageddon 2001 and August 2007 for Booster Gold Volume 2. If anyone of you out there reading this were to come across any issues with any of these ads, please let me know. Again, you will receive proper credit for any instances that you turn up that are not already in the database. Thanks for the help.

I've decided I need to add all issues from 1985-1986 containing DC house advertisements for the original Booster Gold series to the database here at Boosterrific. (It was an early decision not to include them, and I'm just now reversing myself.) I know that the ad was a DC house ad that ran in books cover-dated February 1986. However, I don't know if it ran in every book that month. For example, the DC house ad on page 12 of Booster Gold #1 that month was for 'Mazing Man. Therefore, I need to put my hands on every book released that month and confirm its presence. The following books have been confirmed to carry the house ad:
- Ambush Bug Stocking Stuffer #1
- Batman #392
- Batman and the Outsiders, Vol. 1, #30
- Crisis on Infinite Earths #11
- DC Challenge #4
- Detective Comics #559
If anyone of you out there reading this were to come across any other issues, please let me know. You will, of course, receive proper credit for any instances that you turn up that are not already in the database. Thanks for the help.
There have been 1984 blog entries since January 2010.
