Cameo Madness

DC solicitations for May were released on Friday, and the biggest news for Booster Gold fans won't be making it into stores until August!

JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL OMNIBUS VOL. 2 HC
written by KEITH GIFFEN, J.M. DEMATTEIS, and others
art by KEITH GIFFEN, CHRIS SPROUSE, MIKE McKONE, MARSHALL ROGERS, DARICK ROBERTSON, and others
new cover by KEVIN MAGUIRE
Maxwell Lord’s domination of the Justice League continues in this second omnibus of never-before-collected issues! As the League franchises out to Antarctica, Lord Havok and the Extremists arrive on Earth to continue their galactic conquest, and Blue Beetle and Booster Gold come up with another of their countless schemes. Collects
Justice League America #31-50, Justice League Europe #7-25, Justice League America Annual #4, Justice League Europe Annual #1,< /em>Justice League Quarterly #1, and Justice League International Special #1.
ON SALE 08.26.20 · $125.00

That's a whole lot of Booster Gold (including the Quarterly issue that was just reprinted this week in Justice League: Corporate Maneuvers).

Elsewhere, it looks like Booster will also be making return appearances of varying degrees (most of them very, very small) in the upcoming Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen trade (June 3) , Dial H for Hero Volume 2: New Heroes of Metropolis trade (June 3), Justice League of America by Brad Meltzer: The Deluxe Edition hardcover (June 10), and Justice League Volume 5: Justice/Doom War trade (June 17).

The solicitations don't indicate that Booster will be in Harley Quinn #73, which appears to continue the story begun in issue #70. I guess we'll find out whether that's a must-buy for Booster boosters when we get to May 6.

You can read the complete list of solicitations on Newsarama.com.

No New Release: Superman Heroes 1

I had been prepared to remind you to buy Superman: Heroes #1 today at your Local Comic Shop, but that will no longer be necessary. According to Newsarama.com, DC has postponed the release until February 19.

Why? "The publisher did not give a reason for the change." Hunh.

This is disappointing news if only because it means I'll have to wait three more weeks to find out the in-universe explanation of why Harley Quinn is sitting at this table, as seen in last week's Superman #19:

At least Wonder Woman has the good sense to look uncomfortable to be sitting across the table from the Joker's former sidekick. Is anyone keeping track of how many people she's killed in her own title? I believe in second chances as much as the next guy, but it's not like she was a serial shoplifter. There has to be some limit to how many people you get to kill before you don't get to sit at the hero's table anymore, right?

Aaaanyway. Whatever reason DC has for postponing the issue, I hope they don't change the solicited cover. There just aren't enough books on the stands featuring Booster Gold's crotch.

An April Full of Fools

I hope you enjoy Booster Gold's team-up with DC's omnipresent femme fatale, Harley Quinn, in March's previously-solicited Harley Quinn #71, because the team-up will be continuing this April.

Per the issue solicitation at Newsarama.com:

© DC Comics

HARLEY QUINN #71
written by SAM HUMPHRIES
art by SAMI BASRI
cover by GUILLEM MARCH
Some mysteries just don’t want to be solved! As Harley digs deeper into the death of her friend, it becomes clear that there are forces in Los Angeles that don’t want her this close to the truth. Will Harley be broken by the City of Angels, or will she be able to avenge her friend’s death? And will she be able to convince Booster Gold that he is not her crime-fighting partner and never will be?
ON SALE April 1, 2020 · $3.99 US

That soliciation text.... I'm choosing to believe that it's a joke, and that Booster doesn't really want to be the sidekick of the nutcase who tried to kill him in the pages of Heroes in Crisis.

I guess we'll find out the truth this April Fools Day.

Why Don't They Just Get Married Already

A "fictionalized" Booster Gold showed up at the end of Harley Quinn #66 in part to satisfy the title's obligatory "Year of the Villain" crossover event.

The next month, in Harley Quinn #67, faux Booster returned as justification for a trip through the DC Universe's never-ending series of "Crisis" events. (Was this the same "fictionalized" Booster seen in the previous issue, or a different interpretation? It's impossible to tell, so assume whatever you like.)

Finally, this March, it looks like the "real" Harley and Booster will finally cross paths for the first time since Heroes in Crisis.

Per the issue solicitation at Newsarama.com:

© DC Comics

HARLEY QUINN #71
written by SAM HUMPHRIES
art by SAMI BASRI
cover by RILEY ROSSMO
Harley thought a little trip to Los Angeles would help her cope with grief, but grief followed her all the way to the West Coast. When a new friend of hers dies, she knows in her heart there is foul play at work. She’ll have to put down her mallet and pick up a magnifying glass to prove her friend was murdered. And will Booster Gold help her investigation or only hinder it?
ON SALE March 4, 2020 · $3.99 US

Attention DC: you had me at Skeets on the cover.

Thanks to Rob Snow for alerting me to this coming event.

Move Along

It's a good thing that February is the shortest month of the year, because it doesn't look like we'll be seeing any new Booster Gold comics in February 2020 if DC's solicitations are correct.

The only place I see Booster is in a reprint collection, and it doesn't even ship until March!

HARLEY QUINN VOL. 4: THE FINAL TRIAL
“Year of the Villain” arrives in Harley Quinn, even if Harley is doing her best to avoid it! Lex Luthor has an “offer” for Harley, and he won’t take no for an answer—so get ready for Harley-er Quinn! And Harley asks the inevitable question—who is DC’s “Villain of the Year”? It’s an award-show like no other, as DC’s best of the worst celebrate themselves in the Hall of Doom, with the winners picked by the fans! Collects Harley Quinn #64, 65, 66, 67, 6869 and Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year #1, including alternate pages.
ON SALE March 25, 2020

Maybe Booster boosters will have better luck next month.

You can find the full list of February solicitations on Newsarama.com.
