Murder in the Machine

Newsarama.com has DC Comics' solicitations for February 2019. Unlike January, in which will get two Heroes in Crisis issues, February has only the one:

HEROES IN CRISIS #6
written by TOM KING
art by MITCH GERADS
cover by TREVOR HAIRSINE
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Get a deeper look into the inner workings of Sanctuary. When heroes visited the facility, they relived their trauma through virtual reality, contending with the events that brought them there in the hope of reaching a meaningful resolution. That is, until the trauma took over and escalated these personal events into a full-blown crisis! Find out what pushed one of the superheroes over the edge and how it broke the machine. This special issue reunites the Eisner Award-winning MISTER MIRACLE team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads!
ON SALE February 27 · $3.99

Wait, was it Sanctuary itself that killed the heroes? I guess we'll find out in February.

Fight of the Century

DC Comics' January 2019 solicitations are online at Newsarama.com, and it will be a busy month for Booster Gold, appearing in two issues!

HEROES IN CRISIS #4
written by TOM KING
art by CLAY MANN
cover by TREVOR HAIRSINE
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Wonder Woman versus…Booster Gold?! Diana finds out the hard way that Booster can be a formidable opponent when his back’s against the wall. Of course, being the prime suspect in a superhero massacre and exposing a secret trauma hospital for metahumans will do just that. Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash combine their detective skills to investigate what went awry at Sanctuary and uncover a serious glitch in the system—not to mention an explosive, spoiler-ific secret!
ON SALE January 2 · $3.99

HEROES IN CRISIS #5
written by TOM KING
art by CLAY MANN
cover by TREVOR HAIRSINE
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
The secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn’t supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the ’Net. Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn’t lying, that is). Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash continue to investigate the mysterious murderer. The answer can be found in Sanctuary…but is it safe to go digging in the crime scene?
ON SALE January 30 · $3.99

Booster Gold is going to throw down against Wonder Woman? That's not going to go well.

Rematch of Fights That Never Happened

Newsarama.com has the November solicitations for DC Comics, and it looks like we'll be getting another rematch between two of DC's best heroes.

HEROES IN CRISIS #3
written by TOM KING
art and cover by CLAY MANN
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
The Man of Steel versus…Booster Gold?! Superman finds out the hard way that Booster can be a formidable opponent when his back’s against the wall. Of course, being the prime suspect in a superhero massacre and exposing a secret trauma hospital for metahumans will do just that. Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash combine their detective skills to investigate what went awry at Sanctuary and uncover a serious glitch in the system—not to mention an explosive, spoiler-ific secret!
ON SALE November 28 · $3.99

Russ Burlingame writes about what this solicitation means for the "who will die" aspect of this series at ComicBook.com. (Warning: Link could be considered to contain spoilers.) Since Russ has that angle covered, I'm going to focus on what's really important here: the fight between the Man of Steel and the Booster of Gold.

In Round One (Booster Gold #7, 1986), Superman (with a timely assist from Skeets) taught upstart Booster Gold a necessary lesson in how a hero acts.

In Round Two (Action Comics Annual #4, 1992), Booster was outclassed by Superman, who was at the time in the thrall of Eclipso.

In Round Three, (Booster Gold #8, 2008), Superman, this time controlled by Max Lord, ambushed and made short work of Booster and his makeshift team of Freedom Fighters.

Of course, all of those previous fights were wiped from history by Flashpoint, so Heroes in Crisis #3 isn't technically a rematch. (As pointed out by @FAdamF on Twitter, much of what happened before Flashpoint is still part of most characters' history thanks to Rebirth. Therefore, these fights did *technically* happen, even if no one quite remembers it.) Given Booster's dismal record in this match-up, that might be a good thing.

We'll find out if Booster can finally defeat the Metropolis Marvel this November.

Things to Come

DC Comics released October solicitations about a week late because of Comic Con. (Why weren't they released during Comic Con? You'll have to ask DC.) Booster Gold shows up in two books:

HEROES IN CRISIS #2
written by TOM KING
art and cover by CLAY MANN
Suspected of murder, [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] find themselves on the run from the super-hospital called Sanctuary—with each thinking the other one is the real killer! It’s up to Batman to solve this heinous crime, but suspicion falls on him when Superman and Wonder Woman ponder just how much Sanctuary’s A.I. is telling them. Meanwhile, [REDACTED] tries to make a shady deal to hide from the Trinity, while [REDACTED] searches out an old friend to help him out of this mess—and only gets deeper in trouble.
ON SALE October 24 · $3.99 US

SUPERMAN: ACTION COMICS: THE REBIRTH DELUXE EDITION BOOK THREE HC
written by DAN JURGENS
art by VIKTOR BOGDANOVIC, RYAN SOOK, BRETT BOOTH, WILL CONRAD and others
Mr. Oz at last steps from the shadows—but the truth of his identity will rock the Last Son of Krypton to his core. And if Superman refuses to join Mr. Oz’s cause, maybe Superboy will! Then, Superman and Booster Gold travel back in time to verify the claims that Kal-El’s father survived the destruction of Krypton. What they find, though, is a vastly different world than history has shown. Collects ACTION COMICS #985-999.
ON SALE November 28 · $34.99 US

Note that Action Comics hardcover collection is the second volume to reprint Dan Jurgens' "Booster Shot" story. The first, Superman: Action Comics Vol. 5: Booster Shot, is due August 22.

You can find the complete list of coming attractions at Newsarama.com.

Three Things (Comic Con 2018 Wrap Up)

Booster Gold-related pickings were slim at this year's Comic Con. What did we learn? Not much.

1. Booster Gold will not be in CW's Legends of Tomorrow season 4.

Per CBR.com: When asked at Saturday's DC's Legends of Tomorrow panel whether Booster Gold might put in an appearance, show executive producer Phil Klemmer said it was "not in the works." Seeing as how Booster hasn't been in any of the first three seasons of Legends of Tomorrow, this hardly comes as a shock.

2. Nathan Fillion isn't planning on playing Booster Gold.

Per ScreenRant.com: When asked whether he was aware that some fans want him to portray Booster Gold on screen, the Castle actor said that he likes the character but he's not campaigning for the part. Given that there has been no evidence that anyone is currently actively working on a Booster Gold movie or television project (and he won't be in Legends of Tomorrow ), this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone, either.

3. Booster Gold will be playing a central role in Heroes in Crisis.

Per: Newsarama.com: Yes, we've known about Heroes in Crisis for nearly 2 months. But DC had a very weird press conference on a boat — somebody really loved Eyes Wide Shut — to promote the mini-series where they released new colored Clay Mann art featuring our hero.

I'm still not sold on Heroes in Crisis, but I can't deny that it's looking pretty darn good.
