Happy 70th Birthday, Joe Staton

Though he has drawn almost everything over the course of his incredible career in funny books, I most associate artist Joe Staton with the Green Lantern Corps (especially Guy Gardner).

And, of course, with 1988's Millennium mini-series.

Say what you will about Millennium and its place in DC's steady parade of "no really, this one's important!" events, but at least Millennium reserved a prominent role for Booster Gold in his first big company-wide event. (And then was used as an excuse to cancel his series. So a mixed bag there overall.)

Thanks for helping introduce Booster Gold to the masses, Joe.

Those are the covers to Independent Comic Group's Millennium Index. Those two issues were published in 1988 to catalog the comics and characters appearing in DC's Millennium event. (ICG must have licensed the use of the "Millennum" masthead.) In many ways, like DC's Who's Who, those comics were the pre-World Wide Web equivalent of websites like

I'm sure I originally overlooked these because they weren't published by DC Comics. However, as you can see, Booster Gold appears on Joe Stanton's cover of Millennium Index #1. As you can't see, Dan Jurgen's cover to Booster Gold, Volume 1, #25, appears inside Millennium Index #2. These two issues are chock-full of Booster Gold references.

Anyway, I've finally added these to the more-complete-than-ever Boosterrific comic book index. Could there be other books out there that I'm still missing? If you come across one, please let me know.
