Last week, Kevin Maguire unveiled the full wraparound cover for the upcoming hardcover Justice League International Omnibus cover on Twitter. It's a doozy!
You can click the pic above to go to Twitter for a bigger pic, but I've cropped the best bit for you here:
When it was originally solicited waaaay back in March as the Justice League by Giffen and DeMatteis Omnibus, it looked like this collection would reuse Maguire's famous "crowded elevator" cover from Justice League #1. I'm glad they changed it. While the cover to JL #1 was great, it wasn't golden!
The omnibus will collect most of the first four years of the Justice League International era, including many classic Blue and Gold hijinks. You'll find it in your Local Comic Shop on October 17.

I want it all!
Last week's poll question: ( votes)
Here at Boosterrific.com, I track all Booster Gold appearances. That includes reprints, whether in comics, trades, or $99 hardcover "omnibuses." Given that DC just released a 912-page collection of all the Futures End one-shots, I wondered if anyone here might buy it just to get another copy of Booster Gold: Futures End?

Today, DC Comics is releasing a comic that has nothing to do with Booster Gold. That's nothing new. However, today DC is giving you something else that is almost as awesome.
If you haven't ever read Planetary, now's your chance. The Planetary Omnibus hits stores today, and collects the entire series and its 3 crossover issues with Batman, the JLA, and the Authority. The book has a cover price of $75.00. That might sound expensive, but its totally worth it.
If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of the series. I've spent so much time complaining around here lately, it's nice to have a chance to promote something that I like. I think you'll like it, too.

Justice League of America #2 hits stores today. What are the chances that we will get another Booster Gold reference this month? The solicitation doesn't give much hope, but Skeets has his fins crossed!
Also out today is a new printing of Superman: The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus. The volume includes Booster Gold's appearances in Justice League America #69 and Man of Steel #20. This hardcover will set you back $99.99, so if you are buying it just for Booster Gold, there are some some cheaper options, including buying the original back issues from your Local Comic Shop.

Twenty years after he debuted in 1985's Booster Gold, Volume 1, #1, Booster Gold had faded from sight into the background of the DC Universe. Considered a laughingstock by other heroes and readers alike, his career and popularity was at its lowest point. That all changed thanks to Infinite Crisis.
Following the death of Blue Beetle (and the disassembly of Skeets) in Countdown to Infinite Crisis, Booster Gold became DC's avatar of pathos as he searched for the man responsible for the murder of his best friend (and sidekick). From death came rebirth as this ultimately led to Booster reclaiming his time travel ability as well as his position among the more prominent DC heroes.
Today, DC releases to comic shops The Infinite Crisis Omnibus. This 1,152-page hardcover collects all of the key books in the Infinite Crisis event and its four mini-series lead-ins. That's a lot of Booster Gold! The edition will retail for $150.00, which is about what it would cost you to pick up all these issues individually at your local comic shop.
As mega-crossover events go, Infinite Crisis is about as good as it gets. Too bad that Flashpoint, an example of how bad mega-crossover events can be, removed the story of Infinite Crisis from continuity. It's equally too bad that DC doesn't realize that by reminding us how entertaining their character development and continuity used to be, we won't ever be satisfied with the confusing and misguided post-Flashpoint DCnU.
