Rich Editor Loves Gold

DCComics.com released a "DC Tales From the Vault" episode promoting Batman on Tuesday, and it includes Batman Group Editor Jamie Rich reading his own fan letter published in Booster Gold #7 (1986).

Here's the original letter so that you can read along:

To the press agents of Boo$ter Gold, I think BOOSTER GOLD is excellent. It's something wonderfully new. The first issue came out and I became hooked. What can I say? I laughed. I cried. it became a part of me. I anxiously waited for number two to come out. I sat in my chair all week, sweat dripping down my face and spitting shards of nails on the floor. Finally, Friday came. I ditched school and rushed to Pee Wee Comics. I tore my way to the rack, knocking down people on the way (including the bearded guy with about 40 comics). I rushed to the end of the rack and grabbed Booster's book. I chucked the .75 the guy's eye and ran all the way home. (I wonder if my dad's still waiting for me to come back to the car?) I turned the. TV to The Twilight Zone and settled down to read BOOSTER GOLD. I LOVED THE CRAZY THING!!! The only thing wrong was I had to wait another month for #3!!! So we'll skip the boring parts and move up to the present. I have read BOOSTER #3, and once again, you AMAZE me!! The art and story were the best you could have produced. The characters that have been used were wonderful, and now you bring in Thorn, another great character. Uh·oh. I just thought of something. I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER MONTH FOR #4!!! Jamie S. Rich 6625 Oesoto Ave. #14 Canogoa Park, CA 91303

Rich wasn't named Batman Group Editor until April, and Tom King's referenced Booster Gold story, "The Gift," was already deep in production by then. So we won't judge Rich too harshly for that fiasco. (I refuse to believe that any OG Booster booster like Rich would have let King lobotomize our hero if he could have stopped him!)

You get a pass this time, Rich. But know that Booster Gold fans are watching you extra closely now!
