The Blot's Booster Gold Sketchbook Reborn

Earlier in the week, I showed you The Blot Says' "lost" Booster Gold commission from earlier this year. That was not, however, his latest. That would be this, posted to

Rob Liefeld draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says

A rare Booster Gold sketch by living legend Rob Liefeld! Liefeld has never drawn Booster Gold in any comic book, and I've never seen a Liefeld-drawn Booster Gold before (despite what you might see on the Internet).

I'll just leave this here where you can stare at it all weekend. Enjoy.

The Narrow Miss: Rob Liefeld on Booster Gold

Believe it or not, before Millennium killed the series in 1988, Rob Liefeld was planned to take over pencils on Booster Gold Volume 1. Booster Gold was not selling well, but Dan Jurgens was refusing to bow to editorial pressure to modify Booster Gold into a more traditional hero.

Desperate to increase sales, editor Barbara Randall was seeking alternative ways to draw readers to the flagging book. Since DC was also looking for a way to retain the up-and-coming Liefeld, who was at the time penciling the best-selling 5-issue limited series Hawk & Dove, assigning him as regular artist for the ongoing Booster Gold series seemed a perfect solution: create some buzz on Booster Gold and keep Liefeld at DC Comics.

DC went so far as to hire Liefeld to prepare some promotional character sketches of his interpretation of Booster Gold. Unfortunately, before plans advanced any further, Liefeld was stolen by Marvel Comics for New Mutants and Booster Gold end up canceled. But just think what might have been!
