 All Hail Hale

Monday, September 25, 2017

After I asked last Monday about what your Booster Gold shrines looked like, Aaron Hale got in touch with me via Facebook. His office is like a museum for Booster Gold original art!

Check out these pics of some of his framed pieces. (Click any for a larger image.)

 That's One Very Crowded Elevator

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Last week, Kevin Maguire unveiled the full wraparound cover for the upcoming hardcover Justice League International Omnibus cover on Twitter. It's a doozy!

You can click the pic above to go to Twitter for a bigger pic, but I've cropped the best bit for you here:

When it was originally solicited waaaay back in March as the Justice League by Giffen and DeMatteis Omnibus, it looked like this collection would reuse Maguire's famous "crowded elevator" cover from Justice League #1. I'm glad they changed it. While the cover to JL #1 was great, it wasn't golden!

The omnibus will collect most of the first four years of the Justice League International era, including many classic Blue and Gold hijinks. You'll find it in your Local Comic Shop on October 17.

 Gladys Is Real to Me

Monday, September 4, 2017

Labor Day is intended to celebrate the labor movement by giving everyone a day off from work. Some of us do a better job of not working than others. Take this example by Booster Gold:

Formerly Known as the Justice League #1 (2003)

Whatever you're doing to celebrate Labor Day today, work twice as hard at it for me!

 Tim Levins Strikes Gold Again

Monday, August 14, 2017

Stone Arch Books has just released a new series of illustrated children's books based on the Justice League Unlimited franchise. If you ask me, these $5.95 books are worth the price for the covers alone.

(I admit it. I'm a sucker for Starro.)

But that's not the best part. The best part is that each book includes a "roll call" of Justice Leaguers. Guess who's on that list? That's right! It's everybody's favorite dynamic duo, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle!

The illustrations for the books were done by Tim Levins (who you may remember for illustrating 2012's The Man of Gold). Levins has been posting his drawings of the individual Leaguers on DeviantArt.com so you can see just how good his Booster Gold looks. Check it out:

Now that's Boosterrific!

You can find all four books in the series (Amazo and the Planetary Reboot, Darkseid and the Fires of Apokolips, Injustice Gang and the Deadly Nightshade, and Starro and the Cyberspore) at your Local Comic Shop and fine booksellers everywhere. And, of course, Amazon.com.

 Saturday Morning Cartoons Golden Again

Friday, August 11, 2017

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment issued a press release earlier this month to tell the world that Justice League Action would be coming to DVD this October. The first release will be "Season 1 Part 1" and contain the first 26 episodes of the series.

While this is great news for any fan of fun television, beware that Booster Gold appears in only one of those episodes, "Night of the Bat" (the third episode of the series). Presumably we'll have to wait for next year's "Season 1 Part 2" to get the superb "Time Out." But we don't have to wait that long for more Booster Gold.

Tomorrow, Cartoon Network will air the Justice League Action episode "Booster's Gold" for the first time in America. The episode synopsis at CartoonNetwork.com reads "Green Arrow becomes involved with Booster Gold when he discovers that the self-centered superhero has brought dinosaurs back from the past for a money-making venture." Oooh. Count me in.

The episode was written by show producer Jim Krieg and Jake Castorena, director of "Time Out," does the same for "Booster's Gold." So I think we can expect good things.
