Trading on His Reputation

Cryptozoic Entertainment released their DC Comics Justice League trading card set months ago, and somehow I've failed to mention it here despite the fact that there is a Booster Gold card.

Maybe I've failed to mention it because it features Booster's New 52 costume. But the artwork by Alejandro Germ√°nico Benit is too good to ignore. It looks great, especially when the cards are assembled into the nine-slice collages, like this one of the short-lived New 52 era Justice League International.

Booster Gold is card #61 in the base set of 63, which means you have pretty good odds of getting one if you buy a box at your Local Comic Shop or wherever fine trading cards are sold.

(I owe a thanks to, whose recent review of Batman trading cards reminded me to post this.)

A Better New 52

Back in 2011, Rachel E. Ordway reimagined the entire DC Universe as a friendlier, funner New 52. Among the redesigns were a female Blue and Gold.

New 52 Skeets Looks Like Batman

I usually save previews for Wednesdays, but I thought since we've been in a bit of a Booster Gold drought since Convergence, I'd go ahead and post a link to's preview of this week's Bat-Mite #4.

I'm sure it's not my imagination that Skeets is starting to look like a golden, robotic Batman. Though, to be fair, this is a "Batman Family" title. Loosely.

Bat-Mite #4 will be released this Wednesday.

The Son He Never Had got the first look at the upcoming Convergence: Booster Gold #1. And the revelations just keep coming.

New 52 has no idea who Rip Hunter is. That seems to make it pretty clear that there are no Time Masters in the New 52 continuity. One more reason to hope it doesn't survive Convergence.

What else will we see when we get our hands on the full issue of Convergence: Booster Gold #1 this Wednesday? I'm pulling for a meeting between New 52 Skeets and post-52 Skeets. (IhopeIhopeIhope!)

Better Looking Redesign Than a New 52 Costume

I'm no fan of the New 52 Booster Gold costume. Too many pointless gold lines and ridiculous stylings. If you insist on adding lines to a costume, at least attempt to make them make sense. Maybe a little something like this:

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold by Darren Calvert

Artist Darren Calvert describes this piece as "Blue Beetle and Booster Gold drawn while watching TV last night." It's a great sketch. Must have been a pretty boring television show.
