Last month DC teased us with a snippet of Booster Gold in attendance at the memorial service for the Justice League coming this summer to the pages of Dark Crisis #1:
We already knew there were going to be several specials tying into the event. Thanks to SyFy.com, we now know that there will also be a Dark Crisis: Young Justice mini-series as well.
This is the first page of released art.

So we can be doubly sure that Booster Gold is at that memorial service!
If you're hesitant to buy that issue for just a cameo Booster Gold appearance, you should know that Booster also appears on one of the issue's variant covers. Or, more accurately, his shirt will.

I think that's supposed to be former Justice League mascot Snapper Carr wearing Booster's laundry. Which is cool.
Twice the reason to buy Dark Crisis: Young Justice in June!

Not so long ago, Erin of Exploring the Time Lab was ruminating on some older comics she wanted to read. Included in her list was Blasters Special #1, which just happens to have been released 29 years ago today.
The Blasters were a space-faring group of super heroes spinning out of the Invasion! event. (I always think of them as a second-rate Omega Men.) Their biggest claim to fame was the inclusion of cast-off JLA mascot Snapper Carr, who had gained the ability to teleport by snapping his fingers. Snapper's inclusion in the Blasters was short lived (as were the Blasters themselves: their entire career was limited to Invasion, this one shot, and a couple of issues of Valor). Snapper would eventually move on to support the DC One Million-incarnation of Hourman in his own title.
So far as Booster Gold is concerned, his brief cameo in Blasters Special is limited entirely to the two-page spread pictured above. Of special note is the fact that this is the only time to date Booster has appeared on-panel with lesser known DC Comics heroes Brother Power the Geek or Shade the Changing Man. Oddly, Booster Gold wouldn't appear on panel with any of the Blasters until 2007, when he finally crossed paths with Snapper Carr at the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary.
There you go, Erin. Now you know what you've been missing.
