Mystery In Space?

Over the weekend, Ithildyn recommended that I should check out artist Francis Manapul's Instagram page. That's where I found this:

Booster Gold by Francis Manapul

Manapul has been working for DC Comics for a decade, and in that time he's never drawn Booster Gold for publication. Is this about to change? The instagram post is tagged "#actioncomics", which leads to the implication that this will art is part of a cover for an as-yet unreleased issue.

Although DC hasn't announced that Manapul will be providing any covers for the title after next week's Action Comics #992, we already know that solicitations for issues of the "Booster Shot" story running through Action Comics in December and January misidentified interior artists. (Brett Booth will not be drawing interiors on issue #993 or #994.) It seems increasingly likely they were wrong about at least one cover artist as well.

We'll be keeping an eye out!

Thanks for the help, Ithildyn.

The Mystery Machine Goes International

The JLI Podcast (still going strong, having just recently covered Justice League International #11) recently retweeted this fantastic mash-up:

DC Announces Dates for Mystery Movies

Continuing their desperate attempt to jump start competition with Marvel's thriving film offerings, Warner Brothers has added two as-yet-untitled DC Comics-based movies to their planned release schedule in 2018 and 2019.

It's still anyone's guess what properties these films will star, but if there's any truth to the long-running Booster Gold film rumors, this announcement gives us hope that we might see Booster on the big screen sometime before 2020.

You can read more about the changes to Warner Brothers plans (plus find a bit of speculation about how these films might fit in the DC Extended Universe) at

The Mystery of The Fox

Booster Gold made his first appearance in the DCnU outside of Justice League International in last week's Stormwatch #2. Booster is clearly seen giving the moon-damaging Fox a taste of his own medicine in the villain's own secret Fox Cave.

The question in this case isn't whether or not the Fox deserves this treatment (he obviously does) or whether everyone has their own Insert-Name-Here Cave in the DCnU (they apparently do), but who is the Fox? Is this Fox the DCnU member of the Terrible Trio, a villain so minor he usually escapes notice, or a villain entirely new to the DCnU?

If you think you have the answer, leave it in the Boosterrific Forum or in the comments below. Together, this is a mystery we can solve.

Skeets, International Man of Mystery

With appearances in Secret Six #36 and Titans #38, Booster Gold has shown up in a couple of series finales other than his own. In both of those issues, Booster's been on his own, his sidekick nowhere to be seen. So where has Skeets been? Having adventures of his own, apparently.

This picture was seen in the final issue of Batgirl #24 as part of a prolonged drug-induced hallucination. Unfortunately there is no evidence that Skeets -- who so rarely gets to leave Booster's shadow -- has actually been traveling through time with the three Batgirls and having grand adventures with the Blackhawks in World War II. But just because we don't have any record of it doesn't mean it didn't really happen. Skeets does have the ability to erase memories, after all.

Issue writer Bryan Q. Miller clarified the page's meaning on his director's cut of the issue posted on the Tumblr blog DC Women Kicking Ass:

PAGE 15 - Steph [Stephanie Brown] never did get to have an adventure with Cass [Cassandra Cain] during the pages of the book - this adventure/vision finds Batgirl Steph and Skeets on an adventure through time to find a wayward Booster, joined by Batgirls Babs [Barbara Gordon] and Cass.

Thanks to Morgenstern in the Boosterrific Forums for pointing out this panel.
