 New Release: Action Comics 995

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

"Booster Shot," the epic team-up pairing Superman and Booster Gold, continues in today's Action Comics #995.

Though interior art is provided by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund (and not Dan Jurgens), Jurgens did draw one of the two covers. The other cover is credited to Jay Leisten and Neil Edwards.

UPDATE: dccomics.com got their own credits wrong again (for the third issue in a row). The alternate cover is by Dustin Nguyen.

Newsarma.com has the preview. (Spoiler warning: It contains the return of an old Booster Gold foe whose name rhymes with Roderick!)

Buy it today and make Skeets happy!

 New Release: Action Comics 994

Wednesday, December 27, 2017

I hope you have some money left over from your Christmas shopping, because Action Comics #994 is out today!

© DC Comics

Like last issue, today's comic was drawn by Dan Jurgens, despite what both DCComics.com and PreviewsWorld.com say. This is likely the last issue of the "Booster Shot" story that will be penciled by Jurgens, so enjoy it while you can!

If you'd like to try before you buy, you'll find a preview of the issue at DCComics.com.

Buy both covers (by Jurgens and Francis Manapul), and make Skeets happy!

 New Release: Action Comics 993

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

The one, the only Booster Gold makes his long-awaited return to the DC Universe in today's Action Comics #993!

© DC Comics

For some reason, both DCComics.com and Diamond Comic Distributor's website PreviewsWorld.com still incorrectly identify several of the issue's artists. As we have detailed before (and you can see above), the issue is pencilled by the inimitable Dan Jurgens with inks by Joe Prado & Cam Smith. Francis Manapul provides the alternate cover art.

You can see a preview of the issue on CBR.com.

Hurry to your Local Comic Shop today to buy both covers and make Skeets happy!

 Just in Time for Christmas

Friday, October 13, 2017

Last year, DC Collectibles promised us a two-pack of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold action figures. That set was canceled because of lack of demand. I doubt this latest Blue and Gold two-pack will suffer a similar fate.

Introducing the Previews Exclusive Funko Pop! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold vinyl figure two-pack!

Previews Exclusive Funko Pop! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold two-pacek

From Previewsworld.com:

The DC Universe's most hilarious crime-fighting duo comes to three dimensions with these PREVIEWS Exclusive Funko Pop! two-packs!

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold stand about 3 1/4" tall and come in a collector friendly window box for display. Recreate the adventures of two of the Justice League International's greatest heroes with these PX Pop! figures!

Just last week, I was having a discussion with Randy, the owner of my Local Comic Shop about the incredible popularity of Funko Pop! figures. I admitted that I don't get the appeal of the "superdeformed" vinyl statuettes that were taking up an entire wall in his store. Randy suggested that I was just old. His argument didn't win me over, but the fact that this Booster Gold Funko Pop! figure has a collar might.

The two-packs will come in two different finishes, standard and metallic. Either version has a suggested retail price of $22.99 and a targeted arrival date of December 20, 2017.

Since these are Previews Exclusives, be sure to tell your Local Comic Shop that you want one (or two) well in advance. I already sent my email to Randy.

 New Release: Meet the Flintstones

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Booster Gold is finally back in comic stores after a two year hiatus! And we finally have a definitive answer to last month's debate over what piece of art Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund, and Brian Miller were working on.

Gee, that star sure looks familiar.

Those wonderful people over at CBR.com have an 11-page preview. Eleven pages! Fortunately, it's a 48-page comic.

The preview certainly raises plenty of continuity questions for our favorite Chronal Crusader, but that's to be expected for any character who has missed two continuity reboots. Before anyone freaks out (and I'm probably talking to myself here), keep in mind that this is our first look at post-Rebirth Booster Gold.

What are you doing still reading this? Go buy your copy of Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual Special #1 now! Heck, there are two covers, each featuring Booster Gold, so buy two!
