DC released its annual winter holiday anthology this week, 'Tis the Season to be Freezin'. While I liked it fine — I'm especially tickled by the title — I still prefer DC Universe Holiday Special and its JLA Watchtower office Christmas party, released on this date in 2008.

Bust a move, Booster.

Uncork the champagne, DC Comics has set a new record!
- 338 days between Bat-Mite #4 and now (November 2015 to present)
- 336 days between Superman #124 and Chase #4 (Apr. 1997 to Mar. 1998)
- 302 days between Martian Manhunter #24 and JLA: Our Worlds At War (Sept. 2000 to July 2001)
There's still no hint that we'll be seeing Booster any time in the next two months. And why should we? Why set a record when you can smash it!

Yesterday I let Superman have his fun, but now it's Booster's turn.
If you refresh your browser cache and look at the header above (or the background on the sides), you'll see that I've rolled out a new dress for Booster Gold's 30th Anniversary. Yup, that's right. Whoo-hoo! Booster Gold is now an "established" super hero.
Booster Gold #1 was released on November 21, 1985 with a February 1986 cover date. He was the first character introduced into the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Universe, which DC is celebrating with Convergence. So we Booster Gold fans are going to celebrate, too. We'll start the celebration now and let it run until February of next year.
(And lest you think the 30th anniversary is an odd number to celebrate, I remind you that in 1992, Marvel Comics pulled out all the stops to promote Spider-Man's 30th. Reminders were printed wherever possible, and the web-slinger even got a bunch of his own hologram covers. If it's good enough for Spider-Man, it's good enough for Booster Gold!)
I've already declared 2015 the Year of Booster Gold, and I hope that DC will join in the celebration with some great new Booster Gold stories in coming months. Booster will be appearing regularly in Justice League 3000 and will play some role in April's Convergence, including his own two-issue tie-in series. That sounds like a pretty good start to what we hope will be a great year.
How are you going to celebrate Booster Gold's 30th Anniversary?

Last week, Comics Alliance ran an article by Chris Sims about which comic book characters from DC and Marvel would be the most fun to party with. (Booster Gold and Blue Beetle score 3 out of 10 party hats.) While I thought that was news enough to post in and of itself, trying to rediscover that link to post here today accidentally led me to discover Boostle, a Live Journal blog devoted to all things Blue and Gold. A website devoted to Booster Gold? What a great idea!
There have been 2549 blog entries since January 2010.
