Year in Review 2019

In my ongoing efforts to make Boosterrific.com the best blog it can be, I find it useful to look back at which posts over the previous year made the biggest splashes with readers. Here, in descending order, are the 5 most read blog posts of 2019:

5. Friday, May 3: No Laughing Matter
In which we wonder if Booster Gold might play a role in the "Batman Who Laughs" story in coming issues of Batman/Superman. We now know the answer: he doesn't.

4. Monday, August 19: New Heroes of the Millennium
In which we get a good look at Bryan Hitch and Alex Sinclair's combined covers for Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium. Booster Gold, front and center!

3. Monday, April 29: Statler and Waldorf in Blue and Gold
In which I shared fan art by Neil R. King of the two best Muppets cosplaying as Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. That's not something you see every day. (Thank goodness!)

2. Monday, December 16: Why Don't They Just Get Married Already
In which we learn that Booster Gold will be returning to the pages of Harley Quinn in March 2020. People just love that Harley Quinn.

1. Monday, March 25: Was DC Looking to Boostle?
In which we learn that Check Please! creator Ngozi Ukazu came surprisingly close to working on a Blue+Gold Boostle comic for DC. We got Heroes in Crisis instead.

See you in 2020.

3. Friday, February 2: This Day in History: Superfriends
In which I highlight the Linda Medley/Art Adams JLI pin-up from Action Comics #600.

In which I explain my reasons for not subscribing to the DC Universe streaming service.

1. Wednesday, July 18: New Release: Injustice 2 30

Year in Review 2017: Number 1

While I would have expected the announcement of Booster Gold's return to Action Comics to be the most read post of 2017, it wasn't. (That post came fourth, by the way. By 7 hits.)

Instead, the honor belongs to our "celebration" of the most important comic event occurring exactly 25 years ago October 20: the beating of Booster Gold by Doomsday!

Booster boosters will recall that it was Booster Gold who named Doomsday. Judging by how he treated our hero in return, it seems Doomsday didn't much care for it. Perhaps he would have preferred "Brother Love."

Thanks for visiting Boosterrific.com in 2017. Let's make 2018 even better.

Year in Review 2017: Number 3

Every year I take a week off and turn the blog into the Internet's version of a clip show as I count down the most read posts of the past year at Boosterrific.com.

The third most popular post last year was my rant about CBR recklessly spreading rumors from Twitter, originally posted February 13.

Before I rant a bit — it's my website, and I'll rant if I want to! — let me say that I don't want to discourage anyone from sending me anything that they think is Boosterrific, I really don't. I want your input, and I will always try to be polite and thankful for anything you send me.

But paying so much attention to a teasing tweet not because Dan Jurgens posted it on Twitter but because CBR reposted it? Really? CBR? A once-great website of comics journalism that lobotomized itself in a bid to become the BuzzFeed of comics/movie/television entertainment? At least when Megan Peters covered the tweet for ComicBook.com, she added some context! But CBR? "Hey, look! A thing!" Grr!

I know that I shouldn't be irritated. It's no one's fault but mine that I underestimated how excited Booster Gold fans would be that Dan Jurgens might actually be drawing the character again no matter what the medium or purpose. I should have immediately posted Jurgens' tweet here in the Boosterrific Blog on Wednesday. And I certainly can't expect anyone else to share my biases against CBR. For all of those oversights and failures, I apologize. I'll try to do better in the future.

(For the record, Jurgens' "teasing tweet" turned out to be a hint that he was providing the alternate cover to summer's Booster Gold/Flintstones Special.)

I can't say my opinion of CBR.com has improved much in the months since, but at least when we've had cause to talk about Dan Jurgens pencilling Booster Gold lately, it's been because Booster's finally back in action.

We'll continue the countdown on Wednesday.
