Booster Gold Is Everywhere

If you venture to your Local Comic Shop today, you may find the collected Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen TPB among the new releases. Then again, you may not. Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 was so popular, it's already been through three printings, so it's not hard to imagine that the trade collecting the whole series won't also be popular.

If you didn't know by now, Booster Gold can be seen in three of the Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen mini-series' four issues. He doesn't have a single line of dialogue in any of those issues, so it's kind of like a series of glorified cameo appearances.

And since we're on the subject of cameo appearances:

On the bottom left you'll see Booster Gold appearing in the digital first Superman: Man of Tomorrow #7, now available at Those stories will presumably be printed on real-world paper one of these days, though DC has yet to announce a date. I'll try to keep you posted. Thanks to fabri24cr for calling our attention to that.

Booster Gold is on the left side of this panel, too, though which Booster Gold from which corner of the Multiverse, I can't be sure. That image of Greg Capullo art comes from this recent Tweet from Scott Snyder, the writer behind this summer's multiverse-spanning Dark Nights: Death Metal event. The panel doesn't appear in Dark Nights: Death Metal #1, which was released yesterday, but you still might want to pick that comic up so you'll have a chance at deciphering what's happening when Booster does arrive on the scene. (Again, thanks to fabri24cr for deciphering that the panel has to be Death Metal-related.)

Booster Gold appears on the right for a change in the upcoming DCEASED: Dead Planet #1. Why not the left side of the panel? Maybe because he's a ghost. (Well, not a ghost, exactly. Booster didn't die in DCEASED: A Good Day To Die so much as he was erased from history. Therefore, this is really more of an hallucinatory flashback courtesy the tortured memory of Jon Constantine than it is an actual cameo appearance.) Dead Planet #1 is due out next week in two weeks, and I might have missed it if not for Booster booster Logan Peterson pointing it out. The preview is already available on

It's starting to look like the summer of Booster Gold.

New School Master in Town

Back in 2006, in the pages of 52 Week 6, we learned that Rip Hunter was spending his time tracking the anomalies of the DC Universe by scribbling notes, usually on a chalkboard. The board gave cryptic hints of current and future events in the DCU. This gimmick lasted for several years, until Rip Hunter disappeared in the Flashpoint cataclysm.

Well, now there's a new obsessive scribbler in town.

Justice League Dark #1 hit stands last week, and it included this two-page spread of John Constantine's notes. Isn't it just like that limey bastard to steal Rip Hunter's gimmick? Even Johnny's "handwriting" looks like Rip's. At least it's nice to see that someone in the DCnU hasn't forgotten about Booster Gold.

For a complete list of Rip Hunter's chalkboard appearances in the pages of Booster Gold Volume 2, see here.

Vertigo: Returning to the Fold?

There's a rumor running around out there that the DC-owned Vertigo characters may soon be back in the DC Universe. Good idea or bad idea, I don't know, but I could totally get behind a story where Booster Gold tries to hang with John Constantine. After all, both characters have already been to Hell and back, an achievement not just any hero can claim.
