Hey, DC, your website, dccomics.com/comics, is hard to use when I'm standing in my Local Comic Shop with my smart phone trying to figure out whether or not they should have received a particular new comic this week. Seems you might want to work on that.
For example, apparently you just released the trade collection Legion of Super-Heroes Volume 1: Millennium, reprinting Booster Gold's appearance in Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2. That's great! It's a delightful Michael "Booster" Carter appearance written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Nicola Scott.
SPOILER ALERT: He does.
Every Booster Gold fan would enjoy that!
Fortunately, I now have the opportunity to browse my Local Comic Shop on Tuesday and report on my latest misadventure the next day. That part of the new distribution scheme, that part I like.
So 2020 is not *all* bad.

Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2 is in stores today. Not only is Booster Gold in the book, he's on the cover!
This is the second half of the Bryan Hitch diptych. The first half was on issue #1 last month, but Booster Gold isn't on (or in) that one. You can see what the two of them look like when put together here.
If for some reason you need more incentive to pick this one up — I mean, hey, you're already visiting a Booster Gold fan site — ComicsBeat.com has a preview of the issue's entire Booster Gold chapter. Yes, the entire chapter. And it looks great.

Okay, I admit. If you like Booster Gold but you don't want to participate in *another* Legion of Super-Heroes reboot, ComicsBeat has taken away your reason to buy. But you'd like to see more Booster Gold comics, right? So you're going to pick this up anyway to send a message to DC, right? Right?
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

SPOILER WARNING: Today's topic could be considered a spoiler for Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #1, so scroll no further if you want to be surprised.
Okay. Let's continue.
Brian Michael Bendis has been very careful to disguise the identity of his series protagonist, a character familiar to longtime DC Comics enthusiasts. However, I don't think I'm giving much away to say that character is the split personality anti-hero(s) Rose and Thorn, who has somehow gained immortality and is left wandering through the "future" timeline of DC mainstream continuity on her way of reintroducing the Legion of Super-Heroes to a new generation of readers.
I think that's a pretty cool way to immerse an audience into the deep-end of continuity, in no small part because Rose/Thorn played the same role for Booster Gold back in 1986.
First of all, I found her to be an amazingly interesting character.
Plus, since [Rose and Thorn] hadn't appeared in such a long time, it was fairly easy to adjust the character a bit. Tweak the costume, etc. Tailor it to Booster a bit more, that kind of thing.
As you can see, Bendis is taking a page from Jurgens' playbook here. We're not mad; Bendis is including Booster Gold in the next issue to re-encounter his old partner. Although Booster will be younger and Rose will be much, much older than their last meeting. Such are the pitfalls of time travel.
You'll find Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2 in your Local Comic Shop on October 2.

As reported by The Blot on Twitter, that the Bryan Hitch alternate cover to Brian Michael Bendis' upcoming Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium mini-series has been revealed, and it prominently features the Man of Gold.
Per colorist Alex Sinclair's Instagram:
This isn't a single cover, by the way. When Bendis originally released the black and white inks (in *his* Instagram), he made it clear that this wasn't the cover to one book but two!
EXCLUSIVE! I was just sent the variant cover art for Millennium #1-2, which interconnect, by Bryan Hitch. @dccomics #dcnation #legionofsuperheroes #legionofsuperheroesmillenium #supergirl #boostergold #batmanbeyond #omac #kamandi #notmessingaround #preorder #longlivethelegion
Looked at that way, Booster will be front and center on the cover of issue two. Yes, please!
Thanks, Blot. I'll be standing in line outside my LCS when Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2 is released on October 2.

Though he has drawn almost everything over the course of his incredible career in funny books, I most associate artist Joe Staton with the Green Lantern Corps (especially Guy Gardner).
And, of course, with 1988's Millennium mini-series.
Say what you will about Millennium and its place in DC's steady parade of "no really, this one's important!" events, but at least Millennium reserved a prominent role for Booster Gold in his first big company-wide event. (And then was used as an excuse to cancel his series. So a mixed bag there overall.)
Thanks for helping introduce Booster Gold to the masses, Joe.
There have been 2549 blog entries since January 2010.
