 Now DC Is Just Trolling Me

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Last week, got a first look at a couple of variant covers to upcoming Action Comics that tease the outcome of the "The Oz Effect" storyline.

Hmm. The back of that head looks kind of familiar.

Article author Russ Burlingame noted the similarities between Mr. Oz and one of his favorite heroes.

The reader cannot see Oz's face, although from behind he appears to have a headband and exposed hair -- a descriptor that could apply to Ozymandias, Jor-El (in most continuities, including the current version), or numerous other characters, including Booster Gold.

Say it ain't so, DC!

You can read the whole article, including Burlingame's guess at who the hooded man might turn out to be, at

 Ever-Loving Gold-Eyed Thing

Friday, June 23, 2017

The king of Booster Gold journalism, Russ Burlingame, recently changed his Twitter profile picture from his face to something more Boosterrific. When I asked him about it, he was kind enough to direct me to the original. Behold this Thing!

The Thing as Booster Gold (and H.E.R.B.I.E. as Skeets) by Joel Carroll

This Joel Carroll drawing of Benjamin Grimm and H.E.R.B.I.E. (both of Fantastic Four fame) cosplaying as Booster Gold and Skeets — complete with Kirby Krackle™! — was a commission for Burlingame from his friend.

What else can I say? Russ has some great friends!

You can see more of Joel Carroll's work at .

 Booster Gold Movie Still in the Works

Friday, February 3, 2017

If you watched The Flash on Tuesday, you might have recognized its similarity to Booster Gold Volume 1, #18. (Russ Burlingame covered the details for In what I'm sure was completely unrelated news, after the episode aired, writer Zack Stentz announced on Twitter that he was leaving the show.

Naturally, this announcement stirred up the show's hardcore fans. Had Stentz been fired by Flash producer Greg Berlanti? Was there trouble behind the scenes?

Stentz headed off any potential gossip in a follow-up tweet.

Everything was totally amicable, I'm still writing Booster Gold for Greg & company, & deeply love the writers, cast, & crew. -- @musezack 1 Feb 2017

Flash fans might be sad to see Stentz go, but Booster Gold fans have to be bouncing with joy knowing that work continues towards the Booster Gold movie.

Godspeed, Zack!

Welcome to the 25th Century, where the Earth is a polluted, post-industrial nightmare, most animals are extinct and reptilian aliens are invading cities across the planet! In their time of need, the world’s citizens turn to the time-traveling Booster Gold to save the day. To learn why these aliens are attacking Earth, Booster dives deep into the prehistoric past to see what happened when they first came to the planet. In this bygone era, Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble must help Booster learn the truth and return to his own time armed with the information that will bring down the invaders – if Booster can convince them to help him out.

As a huge fan of both Booster Gold and the work of Flinstones writer Mark Russell, I couldn't be more excited. March can't get here soon enough!
