Found In Space

Last Monday, I guessed that Francis Manapul was teasing his cover for the upcoming Action Comics issues featuring Booster Gold. This weekend, he proved me right.

Said Manapul on Instagram: "I'm taking over the variant cover art duties for #ActionComics and I couldn't be more excited! Here's the first cover of my run, #Superman along with time travelling #BoosterGold"

Presumably, that's the alternate cover for Action Comics #993, due December 13. DC has already released an image by Dan Jurgens presumed to be the standard cover. Neil Edwards and Jay Leistin were originally announced as the variant cover artists; I assume at this point that was an error.

(A quick note for new collectors about DC's "variant" covers. Traditionally, "variant" covers have been used as retailer incentives: "for every 2 of cover A, you can purchase 1 cover B," etc. This led to cover B being more expensive than cover A because retailers passed along the cost of acquisition. However, these days DC offers each issue in two covers to be ordered independently by retailers. Since the two covers exist in equal numbers, it's entirely arbitrary which is the "variant" as in practice they are both "regular" covers. So buy the one you like, or both, as neither inherently has more value or is rarer than the other.)

Mystery In Space?

Over the weekend, Ithildyn recommended that I should check out artist Francis Manapul's Instagram page. That's where I found this:

Booster Gold by Francis Manapul

Manapul has been working for DC Comics for a decade, and in that time he's never drawn Booster Gold for publication. Is this about to change? The instagram post is tagged "#actioncomics", which leads to the implication that this will art is part of a cover for an as-yet unreleased issue.

Although DC hasn't announced that Manapul will be providing any covers for the title after next week's Action Comics #992, we already know that solicitations for issues of the "Booster Shot" story running through Action Comics in December and January misidentified interior artists. (Brett Booth will not be drawing interiors on issue #993 or #994.) It seems increasingly likely they were wrong about at least one cover artist as well.

We'll be keeping an eye out!

Thanks for the help, Ithildyn.

Inktober 2017

"Inktober" is a month-long challenge to artists to draw one ink drawing a day for the entire month of October. The event has been around for 8 years now, and this year I've spotted a few Booster Golds.

Legion of Super Pets

The Internet is just like the rest of the world. Some of it is good, and some of it is bad. And some of it is Boosterrific!

I accidentally stumbled across this sketch on Instagram while researching cosplay pics. Of course, I'm keen on any Booster Gold sketch that includes the high collar, but I'm even more taken with the bird on his shoulder!

Why does Booster have a bird? What kind of bird is it? Parrot? Raven? Eagle? Why is it dressed in it's own costume? Is it a robot? Is it a new look for Skeets? Inquiring minds want to know!

Forget politics and pictures of cats playing pianos. More Booster Gold's robotic pets, please, Internet.

Inaction Figures Are Good Too

So maybe we won't be getting any new "official" Booster Gold figures from DC any time soon, but real fans will always find their own solution to surrounding themselves with the heroes they love. For example, check out these crafty Justice League Action-inspired Booster Gold plushies by ElfGrove:

If Booster was a real person, he couldn't be any cuter than these!

You can find many more pictures of the plushie-making process on Keep up the good work, ElfGroove!
