New Release: Heroes in Crisis 1

Today's the big day!

© DC Comics

A preview of Heroes in Crisis #1 is online at DCComics.com.

As you can see on the cover above, the series' limited run has been extended from seven issues to nine. Per Friday's announcement at DCComics.com:

First announced as a seven-issue series by Tom King and artist Clay Mann, HEROES IN CRISIS now expands to nine issues, with King collaborators Lee Weeks and Mitch Gerads providing art for the added issues. These issues will provide added insight into King and Mann’s epic tale, with Weeks (BATMAN/ELMER FUDD) handling art duties for issue #3 and Eisner award-winning Gerads (MISTER MIRACLE) providing art for issue #7.

HEROES IN CRISIS #1, written by Tom King, art by Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey, lettered by Clayton Cowles and edited by Jamie S. Rich and Brittany Holzherr, hits shelves September 26.

King elaborated on Twitter, explaining "we were going to do 7 issues of HiC and 2 HiC 'specials,' and instead we (I) decided it would work better if we incorporated the specials into the numbering." So this isn't a big change (and also probably explains the mysterious disappearance of that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Heroes in Crisis prelude special that was solicited by Dynamic Forces back in July). Good to know.

Also of note is King's recent description of Booster Gold's role in the series. He spoke to Kiel Phegly of CBR.com:

CBR: Is there a piece of DCU lore or a corner of the comics that might not be central to the action that you really wanted to bring in just to play with it in some small way?

King: There are C-level characters that are fun. I mean, Booster Gold! The trinity are the stars of the series, but the other two star characters are Booster and Harley. Booster to me doesn't seem like a character I'm pulling off the shelf because he feels like someone at the heart of the DCU. Maybe I've been watching too much Justice League Action over and over with my kids. He's the center of that show, and he's amazing.

That's not so good to know. While I agree that Booster is amazing, I'm not eager to see JL Action's goofy interpretation become his dominant characterization in the mainstream DCnU. (Does anyone remember what Elongated Man, Doctor Light, and Jean Loring were like *before* Identity Crisis? Just saying.)

Buy Heroes in Crisis #1 from your Local Comic Shop and make Skeets happy.

New Release: Injustice 2 33

Our hero made the cover to today's Injustice 2 #33! Some people say Booster is all talk, but it takes a real hero to fight a giant alien starfish with your bare hands.

"The battle against Starro comes to a tragic conclusion," teases the issue's solicitation text. That sounds ominous for our hero, especially since we know that Blue Beetle survives the encounter to appear in the series' namesake video game. *gulp!* Good luck, Booster!

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

And, of course, more of Booster Gold (and his nifty space jacket). Whoo-hoo!

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

(You may also consider buying the Seven Soliders by Grant Morrison Omnibus hardcover, though $75 is a lot to pay for the very brief Booster Gold cameo reprinted from Bulleteer #3.)

New Release: Injustice 2 31

Injustice 2 #31 comes out today. Although Lobo and Atrocitus are on the cover, I'm sure that most people will be reading it for the same reason I am: Booster Gold's awesome space jacket!

(For the record, Injustice writer Tom Taylor declared via Twitter that credit for the design of Booster's space jacket belongs to artist Bruno Redondo. So thanks, Bruno!)

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

UPDATE: Booster is also in today's Mister Miracle #10. Gotta catch 'em all!

New Release: Injustice 2 30

Two weeks ago, Booster Gold got a cool new jacket. That's going to be hard for today's Injustice 2 #30 to top.

Starro as a Red Lantern? Yeah, that might do it.

Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.
