Another New Release: Justice League Incarnate

Writer Joshua Williamson continues to channel Grant Morrison for Justice League Incarnate, and in this week's issue 3 the team takes a side trip to Earth-33 (the reincarnation of former Earth-Prime, home of the multiversal villain Superboy-Prime), now the Earth where ideas are born. One idea is obviously Booster Gold, as seen in this fella's t-shirt:

Footnote 1 — I know that this is a Booster Gold fansite, but I personally think that the real value of Justice League Incarnate #3 lies not in the reveal of "Booster Gold t-shirt guy" of Earth-33 but the discovery that Doctor Batman has been sent to Earth-26, formerly known as Earth-C. Last we'd heard, in Dark Nights: Death Metal: Multiverse’s End #1, Captain Carrot's "funny animals" Earth-C Earth-26 Zoo Crew had been killed by Perpetua's minions (so dark!). It's good to know that my favorite childhood heroes are alive and well again in the Infinite Frontier-era Omniverse. Hooray!

Footnote 2 — Earth-26, Earth-Prime, Earth-33, Earth-C, Multiverse, Hypertime, Dark Multiverse, Omniverse... boy, howdy. Does anyone else remember that 1985's Crisis on Infinite Earths was supposed to simplify the DC Universe to make it accessible to new readers? So why, now that the multiverse is back, is it more complicated than ever before? Did we finally just give up on new readers?

Footnote 3 — Both Justice League Incarnate and Justice League Infinity, both released this week and both featuring Booster Gold references, are about plots to destroy the multiverse. (Technically, they are separate multiverses, as the JLU never crosses over with the original JLA.) It sure seems like even DC's writers think the darn thing has gotten too complicated.

Oops. I'm starting to sound a bit like Superboy-Prime myself, aren't I?

Never mind grumpy old me. Buy some comics and make Skeets happy.

New Release: Justice League Infinity 7

Thanks to all who wrote in over the weekend to share that Booster Gold (and Blue Beetle) makes a cameo appearance in the preview of tomorrow's Justice League Infinity #7 now online at aiptcomics.com.

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

(Please pardon the brevity of this post, but I was bitten in my forearm by a family dog over the weekend, and I need to minimize the typing right now. At least it's not COVID!)

New Release: Human Target 3

If you're like me, you've eaten enough food in the past month to survive into 2023 without taking another bite. So it's good to have motivation to get a little exercise tomorrow... by walking to my car and driving to my Local Comic Shop to pick up the newest issue of Human Target, specifically because it has this delicious cover:

Hmm. That image reminds me of something. What could it be? Ah, yes.

For the record, Dan Jurgens' splash page from Booster Gold Volume 1 #10 was metaphorical. The evil Director was not really a giant holding the employees of Goldstar, Inc.

I assume that Human Target #3 will be something similar. However, even if Human Target #3 is all about Booster Gold eating bagels, I'll still buy it. Maybe I'll buy two. Bagels are good eating.

To see more of what Smallwood's actual interior art will be, check out the 3-page issue preview at AIPTcomics.com. Once you've done that, buy this issue and make Skeets (and your mouth) happy.

New Release: Human Target 1

Tom King is up to his old tricks in today's Human Target #1. Someone has tried to kill Lex Luthor, and who are the usual suspects? Hint:

I wonder which character will need a rehabilitation mini-series this time?

Booster Gold's arm is on the standard cover, and his legs are on the variant. Buy either one and make Skeets happy!
