More of Less

Late last week, Newsarama.com released DC's solicitations for comics shipping in July. Sadly, there isn't any evidence that we'll be seeing much if any Booster Gold this summer.

Maybe that's for the best. I have no interest in DC's Marvel Zombies DCeased summer event series. If our hero shows up there, I'm trusting that some reliable Booster booster will let me know.

Meanwhile, I remind everyone that the Fire and Water Podcast Network continues its JLI Podcast series. This weekend, they covered Justice League International #25, which could just as easily be called "Blue and Gold meet Dracula." We looked at the color guide to that issue just a few months ago.

You'll find links to listen to the JLI Podcast (and others) at FireAndWaterPodcast.com.

New Beard for Batman

Earlier this week via Twitter, Tony Daniel revealed that the cover for Batman 46 has been changed from the cover solicited. I have to say, I like the new cover much better. Just look at the crazy thing happening here:

No, I'm not talking about gun-toting Batman or Batman Returns Catwoman. I only have eyes for Booster Gold's beard!

Facial hair is a rarity for Booster. It's certainly not something that Shag and Rob mentioned when they covered the character's vitals in their recent Fire and Water Network "Who's Who DC Universe Podcast." They're pretty thorough, though, so I'm sure they'll correct that oversight when they get around to doing the "Update '18" podcast.

To find out why Booster has grown a beard, I guess we'll all have to buy Batman #46 when it hits our Local Comic Shops on May 2.

Give Broderick Some Love

Have you been listening to the Silver and Gold podcast? The latest installment covers Booster Gold, volume 1, #18 from 1987.

To get it out of the way, guys, yes this issue is the last appearance of Broderick. And Booster Gold volume 1 should not be considered an "epic failure." Though it may not seem like much, twenty-five issues featuring a brand new character isn't so bad, even in the mid-80s.

That Broderick is never mentioned again is, in fact, my only complaint about this issue. He was much too good a character to appear in the spotlight only once. As I covered in my "The True Story of Booster Gold" series in 2015, Dan Jurgens had intended for Broderick to return. However, like Trixie and Dirk Davis, Broderick became just another casualty when Booster Gold volume 1 was cancelled going into Millennium.

Despite Roy and FKAjason's podcast snark, Booster Gold #18 is a good comic. Not only do we see Michael "Booster Gold" Carter lay his life on the line to behave like a hero when the cameras are off, we get to see it through the eyes of a skeptic. We're also treated to more of Booster's backstory. Great character- and world-building all in one comic! What more could you want?

Those Who Live in Glass Houses

Last Friday marked the release of the latest installment of the Silver and Gold Podcast. Episode 29, "Fresh Start," features Booster Gold Volume 1 #16.

I love that issue. It's got a great cover, and Booster wears a crew cut, a white suits with rolled up sleeves, and a pair of red Chuck Taylors. What can I say? I'm a child of the 80s.

The true highlight of that issue, however, is this Silver Age throwback: a map of Booster Gold Incorporated Mansion headquarters.

When was the last time you saw a comic with a map of the team headquarters? Kids these days don't know what they're missing.

Anyway, you can find links to listen to the Silver and Gold podcast in your choice of formats at sngpod.wordpress.com.

The JLI Podcast (still going strong, having just recently covered Justice League International #11) recently retweeted this fantastic mash-up:
