The End Is Near

The solicitation for Heroes in Crisis #9 is out. It looks like Booster Gold will finally be on one of the Ryan Sook variant covers. Sook has created a cover for each issue of the series, each showcasing a key "traumatic" moment of a hero's (or villain's) career.

As a reminder, here are the 8 Sook covers that have been revealed so far. (His cover for issue 7 remains a secret.)

Is the suggestion that it was Harley who took all these photos for the Sanctuary files? Maybe we'll find out in Heroes in Crisis #9. Here's the full solicitation text with an appropriate spoiler warning:

I Say There Are Too Many Robins

Free copies of DC Nation #3 arrived in your Local Comic Shop (and on Comixology) last week. There were several pages promoting Heroes in Crisis, but very little previously undisclosed information was delivered. However, we did get this house ad for DC Nation #4:

Hmm. What can we glean from this illustration?

At last month's Comic-Con, Dan DiDio and Tom King teased that one of the two much discussed "deaths" of Heroes in Crisis will be a Flash, who is conspicuously absent from this ad. Is the other doomed hero one of these characters? I still hope it's not Booster!

I'd be remiss in my duties as unofficial chronicler of Booster's official chronicles if I didn't make note that the art for this piece — a future Heroes in Crisis cover? — was drawn by Brad Walker and inked by Andrew Hennessy. So far as I'm aware, this is the first time either has illustrated Booster Gold. Comparatively, colorist Jason Wright is an old hand, having colored Booster appearances twice before!

Perhaps DC will be willing to spill some more details in the next issue. They'll have time. DC Nation #4 is scheduled for a September 5 release, whereas Heroes In Crisis #1 won't be available until September 26.

Spit in One Hand

Several people were kind enough to notify me that Booster Gold appears in DC's latest teaser image for Futures End. That is Booster Gold, isn't it?

DC's teasers are designed to keep us excited and talking about their comics. They tend to be more metaphorical allusions than actual promises of published content. Therefore, we probably shouldn't spend too much time discussing what we think of the new costume (Booster's 3rd in the New 52) or what Booster could be doing with Tim Drake as a sidekick. Neither should we debate whether that is Smallville's Booster Gold or whether Booster will have anything to do with Futures End's emphasis on Earth-2 or the DC Multiverse.

However, if you enjoy entertaining such intellectual exercises, be my guest. You'll find the conversation has already started in the Boosterrific Forum (with a link to the original teaser image).

UPDATE 2014-04-16: As you can see from the link to BleedingCool.com that Shawn left in the comments below, it is starting to look like Booster will have a spin-off title related to Futures End. Will it be more relevant to the Futures End story than his Flashpoint adventure? Who cares so long as Booster gets his own title again!

Booster Gold on Commission

After Wednesday's post, Herb Fung has emailed to let us know that he's uploaded some Booster Gold commissions from the 2010 Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo at comicartfans.com. You can find Booster Gold drawn by Art Baltazar (Tiny Titans) here and a drawing by Marcus To (Red Robin) here. Thanks, Herb!

P.S. I'm working on a site addition detailing the behind-the-scenes creation of Booster Gold as revealed by none other than Dan Jurgens himself. I hope to have that completed by next week, so watch this space for upcoming details.
