 Someone Has to Draw It

Friday, September 22, 2017

We know that Booster Gold will be returning to the DCU this December in Action Comics #993 and #994. We know that the book will be written by Dan Jurgens. What we don't know is who will be drawing it.

The solicitations released earlier this week repeat last week's announcement that the art team on those books will be Brett Booth (Teen Titans) and Joe Prado (Justice League). However, Booth has repeatedly denied via Twitter that he is involved.

Does this mean that Prado will be carrying the load solo? Will there be a different artist altogether on the book? Who would you like to see? Let's put it to a vote!

This week's poll question: Who do you want to see drawing ACTION 993?

 Holding Him Hostage

Friday, July 28, 2017

Whew! Most of you agree that Booster won't be Mr. Oz. What a relief.

Last week's poll question: Will Booster Gold play any role in the unveiling of Mr. Oz? (59 votes)

Will Booster Gold play any role in the unveiling of Mr. Oz?

The real question here might be if Booster Gold was a prisoner of Mr. Oz, will we be seeing more of him after "The Oz Effect"? At least we can't see him any less.

We'll find out what role — if any — our hero will be playing in Mr. Oz's schemes when "The Oz Effect" goes on sale in Action Comics this September.

 It Is Whatever You Think It Is

Friday, April 21, 2017

Unless explicitly intended otherwise, most one-shot issues should probably be considered outside of continuity. That's sort of what "one-shot" implies.

Last week's poll question: Was Booster Gold/Flintstones in continuity? (55 votes)

Was <em>Booster Gold/Flintstones</em> in continuity?

I'm glad I asked this question. I'm surprised how few of you actually consider this to be in continuity. It's always good to know what the fans are thinking.

That said, I still see nothing to prevent the issue's story from taking place in modern DC continuity. Given that there's no indication in DC's July solicitations that we'll be seeing Booster Gold again any time before August (at the earliest), it looks like the publisher is in no hurry to prove this story wasn't in continuity. Therefore, I'm going to classify it as such here on Boosterrific.com.

(What is or is not in continuity is always in flux. For examples: Batman: Son of the Demon, Watchmen, and anything that DC published prior to Crisis on Infinite Earths. If you're a fan long enough, everything will come and go and come back again. Even Extreme Justice.)

 Set in Flint-Stone

Friday, April 14, 2017

I hope everyone enjoyed Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special #1 as it looks to be the last time we'll see Booster Gold in the DCU for a while.

But was the Special really in continuity? It's not entirely clear. Taking place outside of continuity doesn't make the book any less enjoyable. However, as the chronicler of Booster's adventures, I'd sure like to know whether or not you think it should be considered within continuity (and which continuity that might be).

 Still Visiting the Old School

Friday, March 24, 2017

Thank you for your feedback. Now I know how to proportionally parse the data I'm getting from my content partners. You're the best, Booster boosters!

Last week's poll question: Where do you regularly get your Boosterrific.com content? (74 votes)

Where do you regularly get your Boosterrific.com content?

I had intended to use this information to plan how to develop future revisions to this site. For example, I have already closed the Boosterrific Forum due to its inactivity. Since there's just not anything for Booster Gold fans to talk about, there's no reason for me to keep updating it in the never-ending battle to keep the spam out. I thought I'd use the space for something else.

However, I'm put those redecorating plans on hold. The latest DC Universe reboot as seen in this week's Action Comics, coupled with the company's obvious indifference to selling me any Booster Gold comics, has me very down on DC Comics right now. I feel my time is better served developing video games and writing novels.

To be clear: Closing the Boosterrific Forum is the only change I'm making right now. Everything else will go on as normal — especially since we finally have a Booster Gold comic coming out next week! I'm just saying I've had about all the rebooting I can stand in my comics, so don't expect much change from my website.
