Wanted Poster Reward

Here at Boosterrific, we are developing quite a relationship with the Kevin Maguire/Terry Austin "Class of 87" Justice League International poster.

You may recall that back in August I solicited help getting a close-up of Batman's shoulder. I am finally at liberty to tell you why: the original art was in need of some repair, and the new owner, Malvin, needed a photo reference. Now the work is back from the restorer, and it looks great.

In addition to this piece, Malvin has a very impressive catalog of art online at ComicArtFans.com that you may enjoy (including a much larger resolution image of these inks). We both offer thanks to everyone who helped, especially Shawn Baston.

Wanted Poster (Again)

Remember this poster?

That's Kevin Maguire's "Class of 1987" Justice League International poster. I need a good, high-resolution close-up photo of Batman. If anyone can lend a hand, please let me know in the comments, forum, or via email (Webmaster [at] Boosterrific.com). Thanks.

UPDATE 08/27/12: Shawn, Booster Fan Club Member #001, stepped in and got me the pic I needed. Thanks, Shawn!

This Shore Is Not Booster Gold: The Movie

Since Shawn posted in Friday's comments that the Dan Jurgens JLA poster appeared in the Pauly Shore "classic" Son in Law, I devoted several hours to tracking down the movie and watching it for the first time. It was time well spent.

Pauly Shore in Son In Law

There are a couple of scenes about 30 minutes into the movie that take place in a teen-aged boy's bedroom. On the wall of the room are posters of John Stewart as Green Lantern, Lobo, the JLI and (gasp!) the X-Men. In case you can't tell, that gold and blue blob at the top of the screen to the right of Pauly Shore's temple is Booster Gold. I suppose if Son in Law is good enough to be the first movie role for Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, it's good enough for Booster Gold's first movie appearance as well.

(On a side note, I found the movie oddly endearing. Sure, it's stupid, formulaic and occasionally insulting, but it's also kind of charming. Just don't tell anybody I said that.)

Found Poster

Big thanks to Jesster, who provided photos of not one, but two different Booster Gold posters from the 80s and 90s!

It was a solicitation for the 1992 Dan Jurgens poster above that triggered my post on Friday. Little did I know that DC had only a few years earlier released a poster promoting a different version of the Justice League by Kevin Maguire. Fortunately, Jesster had that "Class of 1987" poster, too.

Boosterrific.com, now even more complete thanks to Jesster.

Wanted Poster

Looking back through some old copies of the DC newsletter, Direct Currents, I re-discovered the original solicitation for the following poster by Dan Jurgens and Rick Burchett.

The poster was solicited to promote the first 1990s overhaul of the Justice League in Justice League Spectacular. The 22" x 28" poster carried a suggested retail price of $5.95. (That's the cost of 2 comic books in 2010! What a bargain!)

Does anyone have a copy of this poster in color? Was it ever released? If you have, please let Boosterrific know.
