Calling All Librarians

OG Booster booster Shawn Baston recently notified me that he had spotted Booster Gold someplace I'd never thought to look: in the pages of DC Super-Pets Character Encyclopedia (Picture Window Books, 2013)!

Skeets... classified as a pet? I don't think he'd like that.

I've updated the Other Media > Books section of the site with this and a few other books that Shawn was able to confirm, but he suggested still others that *might* have Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearances that we have not been able to confirm. I thought I'd put the word out to see if any of Booster's other loyal fans could provide any additional insights.

All of the following were published by DK. Links are to the titles on Amazon.com for reference.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia: New Exclusive Pirate Batman Minifigure (2016)

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Visual Dictionary: With Exclusive Yellow Lantern Batman Minifigure (2018)

DC Comics Year By Year, New Edition: A Visual Chronicle (2019)

DC Comics Cover Art (2020)

The DC Book: A Vast and Vibrant Multiverse Simply Explained (2021)

If anyone can confirm or definitively rule out a Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearance in any of those — or any other books that may not be listed on Boosterrific.com, please drop a note in the comments below.

Thanks, Shawn!

UPDATE: Logan Peterson has confirmed Booster's inclusion in DC Comics Cover Art, The DC Book, and DC Comics Year By Year. Thanks, Logan!

UPDATE February 20: J adds that Booster Gold is name-dropped in the Kingdom Come novelization that I didn't have in the books section, so I've added that, too. Thanks, J!

This Day in History: Shocked and Appalled

Thirteen years ago today, Booster Gold stood in front of the nation and accused the United States government of failing to protect its citizens in the pages of Haven: The Broken City #5.

Booster's been doing this sort of grandstanding for years. He might not be a politician himself, but he loves the spotlight as much as any Senator. Stick a microphone in his face, and he'll talk 'til your ears fall off.

Over the years, we've seen him call press conferences to denounce Superman and praise Manhunters. By comparison, publicly accusing the U.S. Commander-in-Chief for ignoring an alien invasion is practically patriotic.

I'm Not Done Talking about Lego Batman 3 Yet

According to imdb.com, Travis Willingham is the voice of Booster Gold in Batman Lego 3. And thanks to ShockblastMedia at youtube.com, you can now see Booster Gold in the game itself. (This video is the definition of "spoilers" as it shows how to unlock Booster as a playable character, so watch at your own risk, Lego players.)

Did you see that "Booster Gold Hat" at 1:52? Is that awesome or what?

A Blaze of Booster Gold Media Glory

If you haven't heard the news yet, Scott Johnson over at ComicBook.com has found an Easter Egg in the latest Man of Steel trailer. As you might have guessed from seeing it referenced here, it's Booster Gold related.

At the two minute and twenty-seven second mark in the third Man Of Steel trailer, Superman and General Zod are shown flying directly at each other with the Metropolis skyline in the background.

In the Metropolis skyline, there is a building with a blurry yellow and white neon sign. Comicbook.com blew up a hi-res version of the image, and the blurry yellow and white sign is actually for "Blaze Comics." In DC Comics, Blaze Comics is the comic book publisher that publishes the Booster Gold comic book series.

Johnson goes on to speculate about what this news might mean and why Blaze Comics was chosen for inclusion. I'm just happy that Booster has found a way to crash Superman's movie.

Elsewhere on the Internet, Geoff Johns told Steve "Frosty" Weintraub at Collider.com that the Booster Gold television project isn't officially dead yet.

Booster Gold TV series: still in development, Andrew Kreisberg is working on it right now.

"Still in development" isn't really revealing very much, but at least it's better than "not still in development!" Is the show headed somewhere other than SyFy, which didn't even mention it in their 2014 upfronts last month? Skeets' fins are crossed that the show comes to TV sooner rather than later!

O Booster, Where Art Thou?

A plurality of us voters are comic book traditionalists, obviously. However, I think it's worth noting that if I had combined television and movies into one category, it would have made up over 50% of the vote. A majority of voters really want to see Booster Gold come alive off the page again. I can get behind that, especially if it gives us the best odds of seeing Booster Gold again.

Last week's poll question: In what medium would you most prefer to receive future Booster Gold adventures? (49 votes)

In what medium would you most prefer to receive future Booster Gold adventures?

As mentioned yesterday, there's no hint yet from DC when Booster Gold will be returning to action. It's natural that human beings in an information vacuum will assume the worst, so how are we Booster Gold fans holding up?
