 More Booster Gold In Comics

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Booster Gold reappears this week in the latest digital installment of DC's Injustice 2 "Chapter 10."

After his walk-on role in last week's "Chapter 9," Booster's appearance here isn't a big surprise, but it does make one stop to wonder why Booster can show up in stories taking place outside of regular DCnrU continuity but not in a DCnrU comic itself. First Flintstones, now Injustice — what's next? Scooby-Doo?

Before you ask, yes, I'd buy that.

You can find Injustice 2 Chapters 9 and 10 now at Comixology.com for 99¢ apiece. They'll be available together in your Local Comic Shop (as Injustice 2 #5) on July 5 for $2.99.

 Booster Gold Appears in a Comic Again!

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

I received an email yesterday alerting me to this:

© DC Comics

Yes, that is Booster Gold, and yes, that is Ted Kord. Believe it or not, Skeets is in there, too. All in a DC comic book. Will wonders never cease?

This panel can be found in Injustice 2 "Chapter 9", now available on Comixology.com. Injustice 2 does not take place in the standard DCnrU but in the dystopian parallel universe as seen in the Injustice series of video games. (It's not a nice place to live. Superman is a jerk.)

Injustice 2 is a digital-first title, so chapters are available online before they are released as comics. This gives you two ways to buy. "Chapter 9" and "Chapter 10" (due next week) both cost just 99¢ on Comixology. Alternately, the two chapters will be collected into the printed floppy Injustice 2 #5, coming to your Local Comic Shop on July 5 for $2.99.

Thanks for the tip, jayroc22! (Also thanks to Spencer, who tried to notify me on Facebook. Sorry I didn't see your message sooner.)

 New Release: JLU Skeets in Flash 21

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

ComicsBeat.com has the exclusive preview of today's The Flash #21, and you don't have to look to hard to find a cameo appearance by the sidekick of the future, Skeets!

© DC Comics

This is hardly the first time we've seen Skeets' outer shell among the artifacts stored in the JLA trophy room. One version or another has been in the Watchtower since JLA Secret Files & Origins #2 in 1998. We saw a similar image in Justice League of America, volume 2, #7 in 2006.

However, this is the first time we've seen the Justice League Unlimited version of Skeets in the regular DCnU. Is this multiverse crossover a side effect of Convergence, Rebirth, or just an artist who likes the JLU look? Who cares? It's Skeets!

Thanks to Benni Beard for pointing out this easter egg!

 New Release: Meet the Flintstones

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Booster Gold is finally back in comic stores after a two year hiatus! And we finally have a definitive answer to last month's debate over what piece of art Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund, and Brian Miller were working on.

Gee, that star sure looks familiar.

Those wonderful people over at CBR.com have an 11-page preview. Eleven pages! Fortunately, it's a 48-page comic.

The preview certainly raises plenty of continuity questions for our favorite Chronal Crusader, but that's to be expected for any character who has missed two continuity reboots. Before anyone freaks out (and I'm probably talking to myself here), keep in mind that this is our first look at post-Rebirth Booster Gold.

What are you doing still reading this? Go buy your copy of Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual Special #1 now! Heck, there are two covers, each featuring Booster Gold, so buy two!

 New Old Releases: Absolute Infinite Crisis

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Other than a one panel flashback, it's been 492 days since we last saw Booster Gold in action. The last time we encountered such a drought, it was broken by the arrival of Infinite Crisis. If you miss those days, DC has something for you.

Today, DC releases Absolute Infinite Crisis, a $99.99 hardcover edition collecting the entire 2006 mini-series (though not the tie-in series like the Booster-centric The OMAC Project). Booster plays a smallish role in the story, but it does set the stage for his star turn in 52 and his second series.

If you've got $100 burning a hole in your pocket, you could spend it on worse this holiday season.
