New Release: Heroes in Crisis 6

You may recall that when first announced, Heroes in Crisis was originally intended to be a seven issue series with a couple of stand-alone tie-in books. Plans changed, and those stand-alone issues were folded into the series.

The first was issue #3, which focused in part on Booster Gold's actions just before the story started. The second, issue #6, comes out today. Judging the book by its cover, I think we can expect it to show what Harley Quinn was doing when the Sanctuary killings began.

Note that Mitch Gerads is the credited artist for the issue, replacing Clay Mann. Mann's art has been the strength of the series so far, but Gerads shouldn't be considered a step down. Gerads worked with series writer Tom King to create their acclaimed Mister Miracle mini-series.

Also note that neither the issue's solicitation text nor the preview, available on SuperheroHype.com, guarantee Booster Gold will actually appear in the issue. I'll be buying it anyway.

[UPDATE: Booster appears on exactly one page. I think. (It's getting increasingly hard to tell what "reality" is in this series).]

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy!

Playing with Gold

Some people who play video games want more than the default characters. They want to customize the action and play with their heroes. We have those gamers to thank for the following Booster skins, costumes, and mods.

News and Reviews Roundup

A few days ago, Booster booster CDN pointed out in the Boosterrific Forum that Vaneta Rogers at Newsarama.com had included Booster Gold in an article regarding speculating on the upcoming "Trinity War" event.

With Booster being one of Johns' favorite characters (he launched the character's most recent solo title), and the Booster of the future knowing so much about the Justice League, the chances are good that the man in gold will show up at some point. And when Booster's around, heroics ensue.

Elsewhere, both comichype.com and popcults.com give Booster glowing reviews for his visit with Jonah Hex in All-Star Western #19.

Given such a long period of inactivity for Booster Gold following his disappearance in Justice League International Annual last year, there sure seems to be a lot of people talking about our hero these days. That's some good news indeed!

Telephone Numbers Are Shorter in Smallville

I cannot believe how much buzz I keep encountering about Booster Gold's appearance on Smallville. There was some interest when Geoff Johns said it was coming last summer. Then there was some excitement when Eric Martsolf was cast in the role in January. Pictures of the costume two weeks ago blew the doors off the internet. And now there's Firday's trailer promo (which I posted here) that is literally everywhere.

You expect that sort of thing on Newsarama.com or SuperHeroHype.com or even a fan site like Kryptonsite.com (from whence I found the nifty screencap above among many others), but when an obscure comic book character like Booster Gold is showing up on E! Online, something boosterrific must be happening!

Winick Promises the End of the World

From CBR's coverage of the DC Icons panel at WonderCon 2011:

Judd Winick discussed his current work on "Justice League: Generation Lost" as well as his upcoming run on "Batman and Robin." "I got more crap when it was first revealed that I was on 'Generation Lost." But I have been pleased with the reaction since the book has come out." The last issue will be released in the same week as the final issue of "Brightest Day." Winick touted the finale as containing "the most awesome fight in comic book history."

Whether you loved or hated Winick before Generation Lost, I think you'll have to admit that the story of the book has been a pretty fun ride. But that's going to have to be a pretty awesome conclusion to live up to Winick's hype. DC Comics alone has had some pretty darn awesome fights: Superman vs. Doomsday, Jordan vs. Gardner, and Superboy-Prime vs. everybody else.

You can read Wilson Trang's entire wrap up of the DC Icons panel at WonderCon 2011 on Comic Book Resources. And you can read the first part of Winick's super-fight tomorrow in Justice League: Generation Lost #23.
