Look, Up in the Sky

It looks like the only place you'll be seeing Booster Gold in your Local Comic Shop this week is in the softcover release of Injustice 2 Volume 6 trade. But that's a reprint of a hardcover which reprinted comics that were themselves reprints of digital-first content. So you've probably already got it, right?

Meanwhile, after all the rumors about Booster coming to TV, if you're wondering what a new live-action Booster Gold might look like, maybe it looks like this piece of fan art.

Booster Gold by Hal Laren

That's by Hal Laren as found on ArtStation.com. I especially like the highly rendered Justice League Unlimited Skeets.

Up, up, and away, boys.

New OId Release: Injustice 2 Vol 6

As mentioned last week, you'll find Booster Gold in today's Batman: Last Knight on Earth #2, at least in a very small cameo. If you want more Booster, you can also pick up the hardcover Injustice 2 Volume 6 for $24.99.

Included in this final collection are Injustice 2 #31 through #33. Be forewarned, things do not go well for our hero in Tom Taylor's video-game inspired universe. However, our hero makes his final adventure as satisfyingly poignant as it is entertaining. Plus, he gets a cool jacket as a parting gift.

And while we're on the subject of new releases, Rob Snow reports that DC is planning a collection of Conglomerate stories reprinted from Justice League Quarterly. Per the preorder link he found at Amazon.com:

For the first time since its original publication, Keith Giffen's Justice League Quarterly brings a quirky and unique take on the Justice League!

Introducing the Conglomerate, a new super-team assembled by Booster Gold! Booster's new pals and gals are Maxi-Man, Praxis, Gypsy, Echo, Vapor and Reverb, but pretty soon Booster's got to wonder if their industry backers want them to be heroes...or corporate puppets.

Collects stories from
Justice League Quarterly #1-4.

The book hasn't yet been announced by DC, but that doesn't mean it's not coming. Rob spotted the upcoming Booster Gold collection on Amazon about a month before DC announced that, too. You've preordered yours already, right?

Thanks to Rob for finding those links for us. (Seriously, man, I swear I looked.)

Squint Your Eyes

DC released solicitations for June last week, and I'm sorry to say that the only Booster Gold appearance looks to be in the Injustice 2 Volume 6 hardcover collection reprinting Injustice 2 issues 31 through 36. We'll have to hope that Booster is just taking a well earned vacation after the conclusion to Heroes in Crisis and isn't being incarcerated for murder.

It remains possible that Booster will be seen in Brian Michael Bendis' Event Leviathan. Solicitation text describes it as "a mystery thriller that stretches across the DC Universe and touches every character from Batman to Superman to the Question to Talia al Ghul." That's not much to go on, but no one can deny that Booster Gold is certainly a character.

Speaking of Booster ensemble appearances, longtime Booster booster Morgenstern thinks he has spotted our hero in another recent issue of Superman written by Bendis. See this title page from Superman #9:

That's a pretty crowded picture. Here, let me zoom in.

Spot him yet? No? Let's get closer still.

Says Morgenstern: "On the Lower left, hidden by the word "HOUSE", next to Ted Kord, is someone who might be Booster Gold."

Is it? Could be. Maybe. I think we can all agree on one thing: Morgenstern has some great eyes!

Thanks, M. Maybe if you take a look at the rest of those DC Comics solicitations at Newsarama.com you'll have better luck spotting Gold than I did.

Strange Bedfellows

DC Comics' March 2019 solicitations for Heroes in Crisis #7, released yesterday, may include a bit of a spoiler, so read at your own risk.

HEROES IN CRISIS #7
written by TOM KING
art and cover by CLAY MANN
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Click here to reveal potential spoilers
ON SALE March 27 · $3.99

It seems to me that we've been getting a lot of spoiler-y details about this series recently. We got our first glimpse at the controversial cover for this issue last week, and even writer Tom King objected to the way it appears to identify the killer (and sexualize a corpse). Now comes this solicitation, which barely avoids explicitly clearing someone of suspicion of the murders.

Heroes in Crisis is a nine issue series, and we're only up to issue seven. I'm starting to think that the only way I'll get to the end without having DC spoil it early is to bury my head in some sand.

The solicitations also include two Injustice 2 collections, Volume 4 and 5, both of which reprint issues featuring appearances by Booster Gold, plus a new reprint of the Zero Hour miniseries.

You can read the solicitations for all DC books shipping in March — if you dare! — at Newsarama.com.
