Nothing but Injustice in this World

You won't find Booster Gold in your Local Comic Shop today, but that doesn't mean he's gone for good. In DC's August solicitations, we learned that Booster will be playing a bigger part in future Injustice 2 issues.

INJUSTICE 2 #31
written by TOM TAYLOR
art and cover by DANIEL SAMPERE
The Red Lanterns, backed by the power of Starro, wage an all-out assault on Oa and the source of the Green Lanterns’ power. But help is on the way in the form of the Titans, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold and…Lobo? Get ready for a rumble like you’ve never seen before!
ON SALE August 01 · $2.99 US · DIGITAL FIRST

INJUSTICE 2 #32
written by TOM TAYLOR
art and cover by BRUNO REDONDO
Then, the fate of the world hangs in the balance as Starro and the Red Lanterns head toward Earth bent on destruction. Beetle, Booster and the Titans are in hot pursuit. Following close behind is Lobo, armed with a weapon that may ultimately do more harm than good.
ON SALE August 15 · $2.99 US · DIGITAL FIRST

As mentioned earlier this week, Booster Gold is sporting a new jacket starting in Injustice 2 #30 coming July 18. Will he keep wearing the jacket in issues #31 and #32? I know I can't wait to find out!

While we're on the subject, I should mention that Booster will also be seen in the Deluxe Edition reprint of Action Comics #1000. You can find more info about that hardcover and the whole slate of DC Comics' August solicitations at Newsarama.com.

Coming Attractions

After last week's cornucopia of Booster Gold appearances, this week finds our hero only in a reprint of a reprint, the softcover edition of the first Injustice 2 trade collection.

That's not the last we'll see of Booster in Injustice 2, either. According to DC Comics July solicitations (which you can find on Newsarama.com), Booster will be playing a significant part in the upcoming Injustice 2 #30 scheduled for a July 18 release. Since Injustice 2 issues are digital-first releases, that means we'll see Booster on Comixology.com somewhere near digital chapters 59 and 60 in about a month. (For reference, this week sees the release of chapter 56.)

In addition, we'll also be seeing Booster's entire recent run from Action Comics (issues #993 through #998) reprinted in the softcover trade Superman: Action Comics Vol. 5: Booster Shot on August 18. That trade is advertised to also contain "a story" from the upcoming Action Comics Special #1, so don't be too surprised if we see Booster in that issue due next week.

Summer Vacation

After a good run, it looks like Booster will be taking June off. He is almost nowhere to be found in DC's June solicitations.

I say "almost" because:

SUPERMAN BLUE VOL. 1 TP
Written by DAN JURGENS, KARL KESEL, DAVID MICHELINIE and LOUISE SIMONSON
Art by RON FRENZ, SCOT EATON, STUART IMMONEN, JON BOGDANOVE, TOM GRUMMETT, SEAN CHEN and others
Cover by DAN JURGENS and JOE RUBINSTEIN

When the sun temporarily goes out, Superman temporarily loses his powers...but when they return, they are not what the Man of Steel expects! Clark Kent is suddenly transformed into a being of crackling blue energy, complete with new abilities and a totally new look! And before long, the villainous Cyborg Superman splits the Man of Steel into two beings: Superman Red and Superman Blue! Will Metropolis have two protectors?

Includes stories from SUPERMAN #122-125, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #545-547, ACTION COMICS #732-734, SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #67-69 and SUPERMAN ANNUAL #9.
On sale JULY 11 • 376 pg, $24.99 US

You'll see that trade collection is scheduled to include a reprint of Superman #124, which all Booster boosters will recognize as the last appearance of Booster's very briefly worn Mark X power suit, and the first appearance of Booster's slightly less briefly worn asymmetrical Mark XI power suit!

Words by Dan Jurgens; Art by Frenz, Rubenstein, et al

I'm sure you all have that one in your collections already, so you'll be able to pick up a backup reprint when this trade is released in July.

You can see all of DC's June solicitations at Newsarama.com.

Rule of Three

We've known for a month that Booster Gold will be in Batman #45 this April. DC released solicitations for May 2018 yesterday, and now we know many issues of Batman he'll be appearing in in total. The answer: 3.

BATMAN #46
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA
"THE TRAVELERS" part two! Booster Gold's wedding present has screwed up Batman's past, and done even more damage to his present. Now, with the Caped Crusader himself refusing to cooperate, the only way for Booster to correct this runaway timeline is to get Catwoman on his side. But with her own past altered, can he make Catwoman recognize the qualities in her husband-to-be that brought them together in the first place? Plus, if Batman isn't doing his job, Gotham City may become way more dangerous than our bumbling time-traveler might be ready for.
On sale MAY 2 • $2.99 US

BATMAN #47
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA
“THE TRAVELERS” part three! As Booster Gold, Batman and Catwoman zero in on the time anomaly, what they find and their actions to correct it will have ramifications on all of the DC Universe. Tom King and Master Class artist Tony S. Daniel end their first story with a bang that will tee up the next big development in the Batman/Catwoman romance.
On sale MAY 16 • $2.99 US

"Bumbling" time-traveler? They must be talking about someone else. We'll find out more in May.

(Note: Booster also will appear in a very, very small part in the announced Final Crisis: The 10th Anniversary Omnibus hardcover coming in September. I mention that only because it's Boosterrific.com's goal to cover every appearance of Booster Gold, not because I recommend that you buy it. I'd certainly never recommend that anyone buy a $150 book for only one or two panels of Booster Gold. Three is my limit.)

Back to the Booster Cave

Just as Booster Gold's time with Superman is winding down, DC announces the party is continuing with Batman!

From April solicitations released earlier this week:

BATMAN #45
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA
Cover by TONY S. DANIEL
Variant cover by OLIVIER COIPEL
"THE TRAVELERS" part one! Booster Gold has come to Gotham City, and he's enlisting Batman and Catwoman to go on a time-traveling mission to rescue . . . Booster Gold!

It seems a younger Booster Gold has gone back in time to kidnap an even younger version of himself, and to rescue his own past, Booster must pursue both of his previous incarnations through Batman's history to find out what is going on.

The start of a new story that will sow the seeds for a whole new epic to come—and also the return of Master Class artist Tony S. Daniel (DAMAGE) to BATMAN!
On sale APRIL 18 • $2.99 US

This story must be what Tom King was hinting at on Twitter earlier this month.

Next. -@TomKingTK, January 9, 2018

Buckle up, Booster boosters, 2018 is the year of Booster Gold!
