My Favorite Pages: Blue Beetle 20
As I've been compiling this list of my favorite pages, I have avoided including books that contain less than a full page of Booster Gold. But today I'm going to make my first (and probably not last) exception to that rule for Blue Beetle #20, where Booster is visible in only three panels on page 6:
The JLI presented here feels a little... wrong. (J'onn J'onzz has his feet on the desk? Booster says "Wowzer"?) A lot of that is writer Len Wein's over-written script, but some blame has to be shared by penciller Ross Andru's Bronze Age-throwback vibe. (I admit that Andru did many things right in his long, celebrated career, but 1980s Blue Beetle belonged to Paris Cullins.)
At this point you may be asking why I am including this page of minimal, off-model Booster in my list of favorites? Because it is Booster's first appearance in a Blue Beetle comic, and that's a good enough reason for me.

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.)
