 Super-Team Ups Continue

Friday, May 19, 2017

I don't know how Ross Pearsall does it, but he continues to churn out some amazing covers at Super-Team Family Presents.... In the past week alone, he's given us pairings of Groot and Chewbacca, Sgt. Rock and Cobra Commander, and Captain Carrot and Donald Duck. Whew!

But what earns him his latest mention here on Boosterrific.com is the return of Skeets' all-robot super team, Robo Force:

Super-Team Family Presents #1850

Skeets versus Brainiac! Why hasn't that happened in DC Comics before now?

As a bonus, check out this cover featuring the Blue Beetle's new partner.

Super-Team Family Presents #1855

Thanks for all your hard work, Ross.

 Cosplaying with Dan Jurgens

Monday, May 1, 2017

Dan Jurgens was at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (aka C2E2) earlier this month, and he shared with the world a couple of pictures of the Booster Gold cosplayers he met on Twitter (as @thedanjurgens).

First up is this fine fellow in an unusual, Iron Man-inspired Booster Gold costume. (It reminds me of Booster's ungainly mid-90s suits of armor, but it's still way better than the New 52 costume.) Note his Skeets in Jurens' hands.

Taking a low-tech approach to Booster Gold cosplaying is this young woman. Look closely at what she is wearing on her head:

That's a knit Skeets hat! Hot damn! Said Jurgens:

Skeets: full service security and information droid as well as a nifty, warm, knit hat for cold Chicago nights.

We don't have many cold nights here in Atlanta, Georgia, but I'd still give my left arm for a Skeets knit hat!

Twenty-seventeen has been a great year for Booster Gold cosplayers so far. Keep up the good work, Booster boosters.

 New Release: JLU Skeets in Flash 21

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

ComicsBeat.com has the exclusive preview of today's The Flash #21, and you don't have to look to hard to find a cameo appearance by the sidekick of the future, Skeets!

This is hardly the first time we've seen Skeets' outer shell among the artifacts stored in the JLA trophy room. One version or another has been in the Watchtower since JLA Secret Files & Origins #2 in 1998. We saw a similar image in Justice League of America, volume 2, #7 in 2006.

However, this is the first time we've seen the Justice League Unlimited version of Skeets in the regular DCnU. Is this multiverse crossover a side effect of Convergence, Rebirth, or just an artist who likes the JLU look? Who cares? It's Skeets!

Thanks to Benni Beard for pointing out this easter egg!

 Year in Review 2016: Number 3

Monday, December 26, 2016

Each December I look back at the year that was and find the Boosterrific.com posts that garnered the most attention.

Number three on this year's countdown of most popular posts was this fine piece of (unlicensed) apparel I showed you in September:

Booster Gold hoodie by Coyote Pop Clothing

As you can see, it's a good looking design. But the best part is hiding inside.

Say hello to my little friend:

Booster Gold hoodie by Coyote Pop Clothing, now with more Skeets!

It's Skeets! Without a doubt, this hoodie is the very definition of Boosterrific!

We'll continue the countdown on Wednesday.

 Dan DiDio's Office Is Full of Junk

Friday, December 2, 2016

The latest thing to be reborn at DC Comics is Direct Currents, their free in-house advertising periodical. I found issue number 1 in my Local Comic Shop this week. Booster Gold isn't inside, but his little buddy is!

© DC Comics
"The Further Adventures of DC Co-Pub Dan DiDio", Direct Currents #1 (2017), page 16

Yup, that's definitely Skeets, among the "hidden items" like Aquaman's trident and Green Lantern's power battery in the corner of Dan DiDio's office playset. (What's that you say? They're not very hidden? Perhaps you expect too much from a free advertising periodical.)

Although it's not listed among the hidden items in the office, I have to think that's Rip Hunter's whiteboard there behind Doll DiDio. Why Rip might be doodling Batman's head is anybody's guess, but I have to assume that its because his old foe The Eraser will be appearing in the next wave of Rebirth titles. It could happen.
