Rise of the Machines

DC announced late Wednesday that it intends to release a summer anthology special, DC Cybernetic Summer. Everything that Booster Gold fans need to know is on Dan Mora's cover.

That's right, it's Skeets! (This is, I think, the first time Skeets has appeared on a cover without Booster. Good job, little buddy!)

The 80-page giant will include at least 10 stories. CRB.com has the whole list, but the important one is

Booster Gold, Blue Beetle and Skeets in "The Boys of Summer" by Heath Corson and Scott Koblish

I've already started sewing my mask so I'll be ready when this book lands in my Local Comic Shop on July 28. (A Tuesday? That's going to take some getting used to).

Thanks to Rob Snow and Modinda for the alert.

Future Found

The comics industry is slowly getting back to normal, as you can tell by the release of solicitations for upcoming releases. While it doesn't look like our hero will be appearing in any of DC's August 2020 comics, the publisher's latest solicitations do include a confirmation of something we first spotted last month:

Rescuing Robots

Booster booster Cort dropped by Wednesday's post with a Boosterrific comic appearance that no one noticed last week in Batman/Superman #7.

On the fifth page of that issue, among six panels showcasing Batman and Superman palling around and stopping super-crime, this happened:

The first thing I thought when I saw that was "Magog is still alive?" I'd thought he died, but I temporarily forgot that no one ever dies in the DC Universe, especially since the entire universe has been rebooted at least three times since 2011's Justice League: Generation Lost #13. *sigh*

The second thing I thought was "Maybe Booster Gold should be doing a better job keeping tabs on Skeets." It seems almost every time we see Skeets without Booster, someone is trying to take it apart to get their hands on its knowledge of the future. (For examples, see the Linear Man in Adventure Comics #476 or Mr. Mind in 52 Week 51.) Stranger danger, Skeets!

Although, come to think of it, Doctor Shocker reprogrammed Skeets remotely in Booster Gold #11 while Booster Gold was standing just feet away. I guess that's one lesson Batman could learn from Booster. If you have a robot sidekick, you'll still go through them just as fast, but at least you don't have to keep redesigning their costumes.

Thanks for that spot, Cort.

New Release: Harley Quinn 71

I'm reminding you to visit to your Local Comic Shop today, because I know you're going to want to get your hands on Harley Quinn #71 with Booster Gold (and Skeets!) on the cover.

What do you think about that old-school Booster Gold logo? I like it, 'natch.

BleedingCool.com has the preview. Your LCS has the issue.

And while you're there, consider grabbing a copy of Flash #750. Logan Peterson has gotten an early look and says Booster makes an appearance there, too. Thanks, Logan.

Buy these issues and make Skeets happy!
