 His Least Favorite

Monday, February 12, 2018

Jonny Michel, who shared some artwork with Booster boosters back in October, got in touch with more commission news.

I recently got engaged to the wonderful lady who purchased me these Chris Giarrusso commissions.

In celebration, I went nuts. I did something I normally never do. I went out and purchased a semi-expensive commission off of eBay.com from one of my favorite DC artists, Ethan Van Sciver.

On top of the amazing sketch card I received in the mail, Ethan also filmed the entire sketching process and commentary and posted it on his Youtube channel! So, not only do I have this beautiful Booster Gold drawing (with an excellent *classic* popped collar and Ethan’s take on Skeets), but I also have a 45 minute video of how he made it! Seriously, how cool is that?

Unfortunately, upon watching the video, I learned the one devastating blow this sketch is to the Booster Gold community. In this video, we learned that Booster Gold ... is one of Ethan Van Sciver's least favorite DC characters ... and I was the goof that asked for the commission.

Please, hold back your screams of shock and terror. I know. It's crazy.

Ethan actually offers a really good reason why this is though. Basically, he hasn’t gotten the chance to get into Booster Gold by drawing and learning about his story. Luckily, by the end of the video, I feel like he was kinda getting into it, especially when he started drawing the collar.

See? The collar is important!

Congratulations on your new commission, Jonny. (And congrats on your engagement, too! I predict many years of happily married commissions in your future.)

 Wait Until They Get A Load of Him

Those of you not on Twitter may not have seen this:

First look at my #Batman arc with @TomKingTK which starts with 45. Did someone say #BoosterGold and #Skeets? -- TonyDanielx2 on Twitter, 2018-02-08

That's Batman artist Tony Daniel tweeting his take on Booster Gold and Skeets in pencils from what is presumably Batman #45, due to hit shelves on April 18. I can't wait!

 Dancing to His Own Drummer

Monday, February 5, 2018

Today's fan art was spotted on Amino.com.

Booster Gold and Skeets by Jon Samuel Kent on Amino.com

The artist identifies himself as Jonathan Samuel Kent (Superman's son!). He derides this piece as not his best work, but it looks pretty "Boosteriffic" to us.

 Some Fashions Never Go out of Style

Monday, January 22, 2018

It was announced over the weekend that Action Comics #1000 will restore Superman's red trunks.

I think it's great that DC is finally restoring the traditional Superman look most strongly associated with the character. Say what you will about looking to the future, but when you've been wearing one costume for the better part of 80 years, people sort of expect to see you wearing that costume. Truth and Justice don't change, so I don't see why the American Way should, either. Right is right if nobody's right, and Superman's red trunks are just right.

Now that we've fixed Superman, we can we move on to more important things. Like restoring Booster Gold's long-lost high collar!

Don't worry, oblong Skeets. Once we get the collar back, you're next.

 Made for Television Event

Friday, January 12, 2018

Newsarama.com recently declared Booster Gold the best time-traveling comic book hero "of all time." (Does that include the comic books of the future?) However, Booster still isn't as well known as television's greatest time traveler, Doctor Who.

Ross Pearsall has done his part to correct that imbalance in two recent issues of his long-running Super-Team Family Presents... mash-ups.

Super-Team Family Presents #2077

Super-Team Family Presents #2078

And these aren't the only Booster Gold related team-ups Pearsall has given us in the past month. Ross also reunited Roboforce, the all-robot team of Skeets, R2D2, Red Tornado, Atomic Robo, and Machine Man in a battle against their mortal enemy, Magnus: Robot Fighter! You can see that issue on braveandboldlost.blogspot.com.

Keep up the good work, Ross.
