The Superhero Book

Booster booster Kevin Munson wrote in a few weeks ago to let me know that he had spotted Booster in a place I hadn't.

My mother-in-law just bought me a great gift that I am adding to my Booster collection.

The book is "The Superhero Book: The ultimate encyclopedia of comic-book icons and Hollywood Heroes" 2nd edition by Gina Misiroglu.

I have only scanned it. Booster is mentioned in 2 sections. Pg 33 in the Blue Beetle section, and pg 130 in the JLA section.

Kevin's not the only one who liked the book. It has 4.5 stars from customers on That's pretty good.

Enjoy it, Kevin. Thanks for the spot.

Things I Missed (But They Didn't)

I don't expect The Greatest Hero I've Ever Heard Of to show up in any comics this week, but that doesn't mean he won't. Thankfully, Booster Gold has great fans who catch many things that I miss.

For example, Shawn Baston, a Booster booster from way back, writes to tell me that I missed this Booster Gold appearance in last week's The Flash #63.

Also, Kevin Munson writes to tell me that the database was missing Booster's appearance in Justice League: 100 Greatest Moments: Highlights from the History of the World's Greatest Superheroes by Robert Greenberger. Published last year, this is the book is a retrospective of Justice League history, and no history of the Justice League would be complete without a recap of the Justice League International years. It is now included under the site's non-comics list of Other Media featuring Booster Gold.

Thanks to Shawn and Kevin. Keep up the good work, everybody. If you see Booster Gold somewhere and you don't think I noticed, please drop me a line either in the news comments or via the Contact Form.

Wanted: Michael Carter

Kevin Munson writes

I picked up Swamp Thing Winter Special and found something interesting for Booster boosters. This book has a 2nd story in it that was not finished by the late great Len Wein. In this story there is a scene of the new Sheriff of Houma, LA putting up a wanted sign of Swampy. Next to that sign is another wanted poster of a Michael Carter. What kind of shenanigans could Booster have been up to...?

Hmm. What kind of backwater police department is this, anyway? Those wanted posters seem awfully amateurish. If I were Booster's lawyer, I'd argue this as a case of mistaken identity. I mean, "Michael Carter" has to be a common name, right? And everyone knows Booster's hair is blond, not brown.

As Kevin states, the unfinished story's script is included in the issue, and it makes no reference to the "Michael Carter" wanted poster. Was this added by artist Norm Breyfogle? Breyfogle has never drawn Booster Gold before. Does this count? What do you think, boosters?

(Good spot, Kevin.)
