Superheroes As Pets

Once a week, Brian Cronin asks Twitter for silly superhero suggestions for random artists to draw for his "Line it is Drawn" column at CBR.com. Last week, the topic was

In honor of the League of Super Pets, suggest a superhero that you'd like to see a generic pet drawn as, or feel free to supply a pic of your own pet as a suggestion. So either, say,

That delightful exchange got the world this drawing, from artist Caanan Grall:

Brilliant! I think this is a masterful expression of everything I want in a comic book.

Thanks to Eskana for pointing this out.

Year in Review 2019

In my ongoing efforts to make Boosterrific.com the best blog it can be, I find it useful to look back at which posts over the previous year made the biggest splashes with readers. Here, in descending order, are the 5 most read blog posts of 2019:

5. Friday, May 3: No Laughing Matter
In which we wonder if Booster Gold might play a role in the "Batman Who Laughs" story in coming issues of Batman/Superman. We now know the answer: he doesn't.

4. Monday, August 19: New Heroes of the Millennium
In which we get a good look at Bryan Hitch and Alex Sinclair's combined covers for Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium. Booster Gold, front and center!

3. Monday, April 29: Statler and Waldorf in Blue and Gold
In which I shared fan art by Neil R. King of the two best Muppets cosplaying as Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. That's not something you see every day. (Thank goodness!)

2. Monday, December 16: Why Don't They Just Get Married Already
In which we learn that Booster Gold will be returning to the pages of Harley Quinn in March 2020. People just love that Harley Quinn.

1. Monday, March 25: Was DC Looking to Boostle?
In which we learn that Check Please! creator Ngozi Ukazu came surprisingly close to working on a Blue+Gold Boostle comic for DC. We got Heroes in Crisis instead.

See you in 2020.

Statler and Waldorf in Blue and Gold

My two favorite muppets as my two favorite heroes, as sketched by illustrator Neil R King, aka BoldFacedComics on DeviantArt.com.

Statler and Waldorf as booster gold / blue beetle

For the record, that's Waldorf wearing Booster's gold and Statler in Beetle blue. Those two old grumps have never dressed better.

Legion of Super Pets

The Internet is just like the rest of the world. Some of it is good, and some of it is bad. And some of it is Boosterrific!

I accidentally stumbled across this sketch on Instagram while researching cosplay pics. Of course, I'm keen on any Booster Gold sketch that includes the high collar, but I'm even more taken with the bird on his shoulder!

Why does Booster have a bird? What kind of bird is it? Parrot? Raven? Eagle? Why is it dressed in it's own costume? Is it a robot? Is it a new look for Skeets? Inquiring minds want to know!

Forget politics and pictures of cats playing pianos. More Booster Gold's robotic pets, please, Internet.

Only 20 Shopping Days Left until Christmas

The clock is ticking. Do you have a gift for that special someone yet? How about an artifact from a time gone by, a nostalgic reminder of when comic book collecting was mainstream and everyone believed that their comic collection would pay their way through college. You know, 1991.

Earth's Mightiest Heroes: Booster Gold on eBay

Even in 1991, Booster Gold was among Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Seller petspawn is selling this time capsule-in-a-trading card this week on eBay.com. As I type this, bidding is up to $0.99. That's cheaper than the cover price of comics even then!

Whether you're looking for a stocking stuffer or just something to stick between the spokes on your bicycle wheels, go for the Gold!
