The Eighth Sense

No new Booster Gold comics are coming to the shelves of your Local Comic Shop today which means that we have plenty of time to read the DC Comics solicitations for April 2019 released earlier this week. Booster Gold isn't mentioned by name, but I suspect we'll find him in at least one book:

HEROES IN CRISIS #8
written by TOM KING
art by CLAY MANN and MITCH GERADS
cover by MITCH GERADS
You’ve seen all the clues. You’ve heard the testimony and eavesdropped on the secret confessions of the World’s Greatest Super Heroes. Now, with the killer revealed, it's time to find out why. What could have driven a hero to the brink, to turn a savior into a murderer? Rifts will form between old allies, and the trinity of Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman will have their leadership challenged and will question their own judgment. Sanctuary has become something they never imagined…and it's still potentially carrying on without them!
ON SALE April 24 · $3.99 US

Though this solicitation text makes Heroes in Crisis #8 sound like the final issue, there will be a ninth issues in this mini-series. Could May bring us a surprise twist ending? Will Booster Gold see dead people? We'll find out when we get there.

In the meantime, you can find all of DC's April solicitations at Newsarama.com.

Max Enemies

Max Lord is the big "winner" receiving a clear majority of the vote, so I feel comfortable declaring him Booster Gold's arch nemesis, Rebirth continuity be damned!

Last week's poll question: Which villain do you consider to be Booster Gold's arch-enemy? (47 votes)

Which villain do you consider to be Booster Gold's arch-enemy?

(If you voted "someone else," who did you have in mind? Dirk Davis?)

While we're on the subject of villains, someone has been making Booster Gold's life miserable recently in the pages of Heroes in Crisis. (We all agree Booster is innocent, right? Right.) The identity of the real culprit has been the subject of much debate recently as the series nears its halfway point.

One popular Internet theory is that the real villain is Skeets. This is mostly based on one panel in Batman #50 that remains unexplained. The link between these two stories is writer Tom King. Could he have been dropping Heroes in Crisis clues in Batman? I doubt it. I just can't believe that he'd crib so blatantly from 52.

The manager of my Local Comic Shop thinks that the mastermind behind the murders is Psycho Pirate. For those who don't know, Psycho Pirate — a character with key ties to the biggest crisis, Crisis on Infinite Earths — has the ability to manipulate emotions, a power that fits well into a story advertised as being about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. (For what it's worth, PP is also in the aforementioned panel with Skeets in Batman #50. But then so was the Joker. Joker can't be behind all this, can he?)

Personally, I've decided that there aren't really any murders in Heroes in Crisis. I think it's all just one ongoing computer simulation designed to.... Well, I'm not sure what it's designed to do. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the matrix is. We'll all have to see it for ourselves.

If you need some evidence to support your pet theory, Vaneta Rogers put together a list of the clues at Newsarama.com. Take a look and see if you can't solve these crimes before Booster Gold does.

Strange Bedfellows

DC Comics' March 2019 solicitations for Heroes in Crisis #7, released yesterday, may include a bit of a spoiler, so read at your own risk.

HEROES IN CRISIS #7
written by TOM KING
art and cover by CLAY MANN
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Click here to reveal potential spoilers
ON SALE March 27 · $3.99

It seems to me that we've been getting a lot of spoiler-y details about this series recently. We got our first glimpse at the controversial cover for this issue last week, and even writer Tom King objected to the way it appears to identify the killer (and sexualize a corpse). Now comes this solicitation, which barely avoids explicitly clearing someone of suspicion of the murders.

Heroes in Crisis is a nine issue series, and we're only up to issue seven. I'm starting to think that the only way I'll get to the end without having DC spoil it early is to bury my head in some sand.

The solicitations also include two Injustice 2 collections, Volume 4 and 5, both of which reprint issues featuring appearances by Booster Gold, plus a new reprint of the Zero Hour miniseries.

You can read the solicitations for all DC books shipping in March — if you dare! — at Newsarama.com.

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.
