Earlier this week, the original art for the splash page of Justice League International #9 (1987) went up for sale. It's free to look, but if you want to own this beauty by Kevin Maguire and Al Gordon, you'll need $4,500!
If you've got the cash, you'll find a "Buy It Now" button on ComicArtFans.com.

On this day in 2003, DC Comics began publication of JLA-Z, a Who's Who-inspired excuse for a pin-up anthology of Justice League characters. Booster Gold and Blue Beetle were judged so important to the history of the JLA that they appeared in the very first issue!
(It probably didn't hurt that their codenames both begin with the second letter of the alphabet.)
On a related note, BleedingCool.com reports from Fan Expo Canada that Ted Kord might be rejoining the Justice League in some capacity in the near future. The sooner the better, if you ask me.

Last week, Kevin Maguire unveiled the full wraparound cover for the upcoming hardcover Justice League International Omnibus cover on Twitter. It's a doozy!
You can click the pic above to go to Twitter for a bigger pic, but I've cropped the best bit for you here:
When it was originally solicited waaaay back in March as the Justice League by Giffen and DeMatteis Omnibus, it looked like this collection would reuse Maguire's famous "crowded elevator" cover from Justice League #1. I'm glad they changed it. While the cover to JL #1 was great, it wasn't golden!
The omnibus will collect most of the first four years of the Justice League International era, including many classic Blue and Gold hijinks. You'll find it in your Local Comic Shop on October 17.

The Blot's Booster Gold sketchbook grew by one at Houston's Comicpalooza last weekend. Check out this commission from Kevin Maguire:
Booster looks so serious. No doubt, he's just as frustrated by his prolonged absence from comic books as we are.
Here's a Maguire Booster sketch from happier times:
Obviously, Booster's happier in the high collar. Aren't we all?
This second commission comes from Matt Santori, who shared his commissioned sketch on Twitter in 2013. It's four years old and still looking Boosterrific!
There have been 2252 blog entries since January 2010.
