Twenty percent is hardly an insignificant number.
Last week's poll question: Do you visit Boosterrific.com on Facebook? (52 votes)
Those "occasionally" voters wouldn't be too bothered if I just dropped Facebook, but the four of you who voted "often," you four shouldn't be punished for enjoying Boosterrific.com your way.
I tell you what: I won't turn off my Facebook pushes or close the page immediately. However, be warned that if they make it harder (or more expensive) for me to keep doing it than they already do, that will probably be the last straw.
Thanks to all who voted.

I interrupt this Booster Gold blog to ask a serious question: should I continue to maintain a Facebook page for Boosterrific.com?
I created the Boosterrific.com fan page on Facebook 8 years ago this month as a convenience for those fans who also spend a great deal of time on the world's largest social media site. While I don't want to lose those (or any) readers, I personally dislike using the site and would prefer if I could just ignore it entirely.
Therefore, the question becomes how valuable is it for me to maintain that relationship with a service I find increasingly unpalatable? Is having a Facebook page for Boosterrific.com necessary to maintain readership?
To answer that question, I need your help telling me how useful you, the Booster Gold fan, consider Boosterrific.com's Facebook presence to be.

On the subject of Justice League #37, I think I've decided that our mystery hero is supposed to be Animal Man. It looks like most of you agree with me.
Last week's poll question: Does Booster Gold appear in JUSTICE LEAGUE 37? (40 votes)
I think it's weird that the Justice League has spent the last year fighting a war to save the multiverse as we know it, and the DC Universe's greatest continuity cop, Booster Gold, has been relegated to a one-panel appearance. *shrug*
What does Scott Snyder have against Booster Gold?

Earlier this week in Justice League #37, the assembled heroes of the Multiverse faced off against the minions of the Legion of Doom. It's a big fight.

Obviously, a lot of heroes are involved, and the limited size of a comic book means that there isn't too much room for detail.
Do my eyes deceive me, or do I spot Booster Gold in the center of that army?
Booster Gold was last seen in one panel in Justice League #34 accompanying many of the same heroes seen here. Is he back? Or is this wishful thinking on my part?
Animal Man has a similar cowl with no goggles, so it might be him. He wasn't in issue #34, but he can be clearly seen in the background of issue #36 standing behind several of the figures in this very same panel.
There's just not enough clarity to the art here for me to to be absolutely sure. (Pages like these really make me appreciate all the more what George Perez was able to do with worse printing methods back in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths!)
What do you say?

Ah-ha! Exactly as I thought: Most of you started buying young.
Last week's poll question: How old were you when you bought your first Booster Gold comic book? (57 votes)
It was a pretty safe guess. Anecdotal information indicates that most new readers discover comics in their early teen-aged years. I'm no exception. I was buying comics at my local gas stations and drug stores as far back as I can remember. I still have issues I bought off spinner racks when I was 5.
(I didn't transition to the direct market until much later. I didn't even know it existed until I was 13. We didn't have the Internet back in the Reagan Era. It was a simpler time.)
Therefore, the odds were that most of you fans, like me, first encountered Booster Gold in your childhood. Given that the modern average American comic book reader is approaching their mid thirties, I assume most of you are a little older now. I'm glad you've stuck around.
Special thanks to everyone who left their Booster Gold story in last week's comments. I really enjoyed those.
