Happy Independence Day! If you can tear yourself away from fireworks and hot dogs, get yourself to your Local Comic Shop today and get your hands on Injustice 2 #29, featuring Booster Gold's new jacket!
Finally! A costume update that looks better than what he was already wearing!
While you're there, consider picking up a copy of the suddenly very controversial Batman #50. Your LCS probably ordered too many of them.
(A quick aside for those of you not glued to the comics press: on Sunday, with the consent of DC Comics, The New York Times newspaper spoiled the events of Batman #50. According to ComicBook.com, DC vice-president of sales John Cunningham defended the company's actions by essentially saying that DC wanted to mitigate what they knew would be terrible backlash if fans didn't find out about the issue contents until the day of release. That's practically an admission that they had promoted and sold the issue — retailers had to commit to orders for the 50+ covers two months ago — on false pretenses. I'm no lawyer, but I would think that qualifies as fraud.)
But I'm not advocating that you pick up Batman because I'm a nice guy who wants to see Local Comics Shops stay in business. No, like Booster Gold, I'm a little shallower than that. I'm suggesting you pick up an issue because Skeets is in it.
What is Skeets doing here? I have no idea. It being a Tom King written book, I bet there's no logical reason, probably just an excuse to get Booster Gold fans to buy a copy. At least in my case, it will work.

I wasn't sure what I was going to post today until I spotted this Booster Gold (and Skeets!) commission from Mike Henderson on ComicArtFans.com:
The piece is clearly dated 2014, but owner Michael "Off White" White just posted it online earlier this month. Thanks to Michael for sharing this gem!

If you're reading this, you probably know that the Internet has a sizable contingent of DC Comics fans. It just so happens that My Little Pony also has a pretty significant online presence. It was only a matter of time before the two met.
This delightful mash-up of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold as ponies comes straight from the sketchbook of Pony Goddess. They're a happy looking pair. I'll bet they'd be even happier if there was a whole team of them.
Three generations of Blue Beetle ponies meeting Booster Gold and Goldstar ponies? Yes, please. We have ajremix to thank for such goodness.
But how would Blue pony and Gold pony interact with the rest of the DCU ponies? LadyM has that answer.
Yep, that seems to cover all the bases. Thank you, Internet.

As I was saying on Monday, I'm sure the Internet exists just to solve problems. Today's problem is "Why isn't there a Sailor Moon / Ranma 1/2 / Booster Gold crossover?"
Thank you, Internet!
This piece was created by JStCPatrick of DeviantArt.com, who has a gallery of 128 such Senshi/Ranma crossover pieces. I don't recognize all of the inspirations, but the Ronald McDonald-inspired "Senshi McSenshi Ranma" did give me a chuckle.

Last Monday when I asked if anyone had any suggestions for art to add to my corner box collection, Diego Segovia suggested "That cover where Zatanna turns Booster, Beetle, and Skeets into women."
Sadly, there is no such cover. However, I'm pretty sure that the Internet exists just to "correct" that sort of problem.
This, I think is the piece to which Diego was referring:
That's not technically a cover but a commission drawn by Lofton Wallace in 2012. And technically, I've never posted this art before. Technically. (Though I did link to it in the comments when I posted the original line art six years ago.)
Despite all those technicalities, Diego's comment gives me a good excuse to revisit it because even six years later, it's still a lot of fun.
There have been 1996 blog entries since January 2010.
