New Release: Dial H For Hero 4

Booster Gold can be seen in two comics released today. Not Booster himself, mind you, but things designed to look like Booster.

The first is a casino advertisement as seen in this panel from Old Lady Harley #3 reprinted in today's Old Lady Harley trade.

The second is as a Justice-League sanctioned robot (!) in Dial H for Hero #4, as seen in the preview available online at DCComics.com:

Is that a robot Blue Beetle at the bottom of the page? I'd pay good money for a robot Blue and Gold team-up comic! (Thanks for spotting that, Blot.)

Buy either or both and make Skeets happy!

New Release: Heroes in Crisis 9

Heroes in Crisis #9 is out today, putting a period on a frankly disappointing mini-series. All's well that, well, ends.

Newsarama.com has the issue preview, which delightfully gives almost nothing away for a change. We'll all be surprised when we get to our Local Comic Shops today.

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy!

New Release: Heroes in Crisis 8

At long last, all / most / almost all of our questions will / could / should be answered into today's Heroes in Crisis #8!

io9.com has the issue preview, which seems to imply that.... No. I won't spoil it.

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy! (*Somebody* needs to be happy.)

New Old Release: Superman Dies Again

When I go into my Local Comic Shop today to pick up Wonder Twins #3, there's something else I'll be taking a look at.

For the second week in a row, DC is releasing a reprint of an event story that contains some Booster Gold. In fact, Booster has very important role in The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus. He named Doomsday.

Justice League America #69 (1992)

But perhaps you already own one of the previous Death of Superman reprints? Well, DC has given you another reason to buy this one. Says Dan Jurgens on Twitter.com:

The new

It's good to know that these omnibuses are reprinting the comics as they were originally intended to be read. That's cool, DC. Good for you.

New Old Release: Final Crisis

If you're headed to your Local Comic Shop today (perhaps looking for Young Justice #4 like me!), there is one new-ish Booster Gold appearance you could take home: Final Crisis DC Essential Edition.

That said, if you're considering buying this because you're a Booster Gold collector, I can't really recommend that you do that. Booster makes a cameo appearance in only a couple of panels of that entire crossover. Only one of those is reprinted here. In fact, here it is.

Now, if you're considering buying this because you are looking for a good read, I can't really recommend that you do that, either. Final Crisis is not DC's best crisis. It's far from Grant Morrison's best work, either. If you weren't around to read this when it was released in 2008, there are plenty of other, better comics that you could read instead.

In other words, reading Final Crisis in 2019 is the DC Comics-fan equivalent of a drug addict shooting up from someone else's discarded needle only because he desperately needs another fix. Just say no.

(Full disclosure: Despite having a run of over 350 consecutive issues of Detective Comics going, I stopped buying it when Final Crisis came along. I really didn't enjoy that story or how it handled Batman.)

(Supplemental disclosure: Detective Comics #1000 is the first issue of that title I have purchased since 2009. I enjoyed most of it except the story that leads directly into Detective Comics #1001. So it very well might be the last issue of Detective Comics that I buy until issue #2000 comes along in 2099.)

DC has a whole line of Essential Editions in the pipeline. If you like event stories, the superior Infinite Crisis DC Essential Edition will be along in July. If you like Morrison, his JLA New World Order DC Essential Edition came out last month, and his Batman Black Glove Saga DC Essential Edition will be along in in June.

In other words, there are plenty of great stories out there. Read some of them, but don't waste your time on this.
