 New Release: Injustice 2 Issue 5

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Don't forget that DC Comics is releasing Injustice 2 #5 today. (Although, because of the Independence Day holiday, some shops — including my own Local Comic Shop — won't have new books on the shelves until tomorrow.)

The contents of this issue first appeared digitally last month, so we can be sure that our hero (and Skeets!) will be appearing within.

Buy this issue and tell DC that we want more Booster Gold!

 More Booster Gold In Comics

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Booster Gold reappears this week in the latest digital installment of DC's Injustice 2 "Chapter 10."

After his walk-on role in last week's "Chapter 9," Booster's appearance here isn't a big surprise, but it does make one stop to wonder why Booster can show up in stories taking place outside of regular DCnrU continuity but not in a DCnrU comic itself. First Flintstones, now Injustice — what's next? Scooby-Doo?

Before you ask, yes, I'd buy that.

You can find Injustice 2 Chapters 9 and 10 now at Comixology.com for 99¢ apiece. They'll be available together in your Local Comic Shop (as Injustice 2 #5) on July 5 for $2.99.

 Booster Gold Appears in a Comic Again!

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

I received an email yesterday alerting me to this:

Yes, that is Booster Gold, and yes, that is Ted Kord. Believe it or not, Skeets is in there, too. All in a DC comic book. Will wonders never cease?

This panel can be found in Injustice 2 "Chapter 9", now available on Comixology.com. Injustice 2 does not take place in the standard DCnrU but in the dystopian parallel universe as seen in the Injustice series of video games. (It's not a nice place to live. Superman is a jerk.)

Injustice 2 is a digital-first title, so chapters are available online before they are released as comics. This gives you two ways to buy. "Chapter 9" and "Chapter 10" (due next week) both cost just 99¢ on Comixology. Alternately, the two chapters will be collected into the printed floppy Injustice 2 #5, coming to your Local Comic Shop on July 5 for $2.99.

Thanks for the tip, jayroc22! (Also thanks to Spencer, who tried to notify me on Facebook. Sorry I didn't see your message sooner.)

 It's an Injustice They Were Excluded

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game released in 2013. It features many DC Universe characters from across the Multiverse and pits them against one another in Mortal Kombat style battles. The biggest flaw with that game is that it didn't include everyone's favorite characters.

Gavin Jasper of DenofGeek.us gives a list of the top ten characters he hopes to find in the inevitable sequel. Guess who tops the list?

To put it plainly, Booster Gold needs to be in Injustice 2 because he would be the Johnny Cage of the game. In fact, to this day, it bugs me that we never got Johnny Cage vs. Booster Gold in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. He's a charismatic character with enough unique aspects to his fighting style (time travel, force fields, and football robot buddy) who could mean all kinds of things for a story like this.

I'm with Gavin. Add a little Booster Gold, and you've got yourself a sale!

Find the whole list of who Gavin would ad at DenofGeek.us.

 Generation Lost Versus Injustice League

Friday, September 17, 2010

Yesterday, we looked at Booster Gold sales. Today we'll take a peek at Justice League: Generation Lost.

Justice League: Generation Lost sales to date for 2010

It's kind of a shame to think that sales have been falling over time for this title, as that's in inverse proportion to the quality of the issues. But as I said yesterday, that's largely to be expected as natural reader attrition. Given the fact that sales trends seem to be pretty constant over time and over series, it seems pretty obvious that we can probably expect the same continued, gently declining performance from JL:GL over the remaining 2/3 of the series.

I'd venture a rough guess that the series is going to end up selling at about 30,000 copies for the final few issues, probably with a spike at the end as it ties into Brightest Day. (That spike at the end was pretty significant for 52 as it re-launched the multiverse. No telling what could happen if there's a similar reveal at the end of this series such as, say, the resurrection of Ted Kord.)
