That's One Very Crowded Elevator

Last week, Kevin Maguire unveiled the full wraparound cover for the upcoming hardcover Justice League International Omnibus cover on Twitter. It's a doozy!

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.

A Man For All Seasons

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!

The Man Can Draw

There was no post yesterday . . . because I screwed up my dates. Oops. (January has how many days this year?) Sorry. The following is the post that should have run yesterday morning. I hope it was worth the wait.

I posted a cover image by Kevin Maguire on Friday. I liked it so much, I'm going to start the week with a couple of recent Maguire commissions.

It has been nearly three decades since Justice League International made him a star, and Maguire's work is as good as ever!

Mayfair the Sourcebook Be with Us

The Fire and Water Podcast Network has recently added to their lineup! DC RPG: The Hero Points Podcast, by Siskoid of the famous Blog of Geekery, has already reached its fourth episode in which they covered the 1990 Justice League Sourcebook with Booster Gold on the cover.

Mayfair Games Justice League Sourcebook

That beautiful cover is by Kevin Maguire and Joe Rubinstein. But it's also worth looking at the back cover, with a pull quote attributed to our hero.

Wow, there's so many villains! Has the Justice League really fought all of them? this is too cool . . . Everybody from the Appellaxians™ to the Injustice League™ . . . Even Starro the Conqueror™ and Magna Khan™ are in here! -- Booster Gold™

While the covers are nice, most who bought this sourcebook did so for the role-playing content inside. The book even includes stats for role playing as the Capitalist Crusader!

You can find scans of those pages or listen to the podcast at FireAndWaterPodcast.com. Keep up the good work, guys.

Dan Jurgens Hates Cowards

A few days ago, Booster Gold creator Dan Jurgens made a pretty strong statement on Twitter.

Perhaps my least favorite shot of BG ever. Running in total fear from a threat? Have always hated that image. @thedanjurgens

The inspiration for Jurgens' comment was Booster booster Keith Callbeck's post of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family mash-up cover of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle running from the Hulk. Pearsall's inspiration was the opening splash page of Booster Gold, Volume 2, #34, drawn by Chris Batista in 2010. Specifically, it is this panel by Batista that Jurgens takes issue with:

It's easy to understand Jurgens' dissatisfaction with Batista's choice of poses and expressions. That panel has gained some traction on the Internet in recent years. You may have seen it copied by Blue and Gold cosplayers. Howard Porter's 2015 cover for Justice League 3000 #12 saw a similar scene of the panicked pair.

That wasn't always their reaction to trouble. In their Justice League International heyday, Beetle and Booster were chased by mobs of angry citizens, vampires, middle-eastern dictators, runaway islands, demons, and countless super villains. Yet Kevin Maguire, the artist most associated with the Blue and Gold pairing, never showed Blue and Gold turning tail in fear.

So what's the right way to depict Blue Beetle and Booster Gold running for their lives? Here's Dan Jurgens' take on the scenario in Booster Gold, Volume 2, #7 (2008):

Ok, so maybe Beetle is still scared. But look at Booster. What a hero!
