New Release: Hell Arisen 4

Booster Gold was in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #2 and #3, so it seemed pretty likely he'd be in the final issue of the mini-series released today, even if the announcement solicitation wasn't explicit.

YEAR OF THE VILLAIN: HELL ARISEN #4
written by JAMES TYNION IV
art and cover by STEVE EPTING
This is it! Lex Luthor has gathered a strike force of villains he's leveled up to be the baddest bad guys around-Captain Cold, Oracle, Solomon Grundy, Black Manta, and Lobo, each and every one a recipient of one of Lex's dark gifts.

But the Batman Who Laughs has his own army of infected heroes. Six hundred sixty-six of them, all transformed into their worst selves.

It's a final showdown between two of DC's most iconic villains, all to curry the favor of Perpetua. Whoever wins will take over the Multiverse alongside her. Does Lex ascend, or does he get laid low? Does the Batman Who Laughs finally remake the DC Universe in his own image? Either way, life for our heroes will never be the same.

Sure, would-be heroes are a dime a dozen in the DC Universe, but six hundred and sixty-six of them? That's got to be, like, everyone. I'm not sure I'm ready for Evil G'nort.

Anyway, we don't have to guess whether or not Booster is in issue #4 because CBR.com has a preview, and...

...yup, that's Booster Gold, all right.

Assuming your Local Comic Shop isn't closed by your local government, brave a plague to buy this issue and makes Skeets happy! (And enjoy it, because Booster doesn't look to appear anywhere in the June solicitations, which you can find now on Newsarama.com.)

Cameo Madness

DC solicitations for May were released on Friday, and the biggest news for Booster Gold fans won't be making it into stores until August!

JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL OMNIBUS VOL. 2 HC
written by KEITH GIFFEN, J.M. DEMATTEIS, and others
art by KEITH GIFFEN, CHRIS SPROUSE, MIKE McKONE, MARSHALL ROGERS, DARICK ROBERTSON, and others
new cover by KEVIN MAGUIRE
Maxwell Lord’s domination of the Justice League continues in this second omnibus of never-before-collected issues! As the League franchises out to Antarctica, Lord Havok and the Extremists arrive on Earth to continue their galactic conquest, and Blue Beetle and Booster Gold come up with another of their countless schemes. Collects
Justice League America #31-50, Justice League Europe #7-25, Justice League America Annual #4, Justice League Europe Annual #1,< /em>Justice League Quarterly #1, and Justice League International Special #1.
ON SALE 08.26.20 · $125.00

That's a whole lot of Booster Gold (including the Quarterly issue that was just reprinted this week in Justice League: Corporate Maneuvers).

Elsewhere, it looks like Booster will also be making return appearances of varying degrees (most of them very, very small) in the upcoming Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen trade (June 3) , Dial H for Hero Volume 2: New Heroes of Metropolis trade (June 3), Justice League of America by Brad Meltzer: The Deluxe Edition hardcover (June 10), and Justice League Volume 5: Justice/Doom War trade (June 17).

The solicitations don't indicate that Booster will be in Harley Quinn #73, which appears to continue the story begun in issue #70. I guess we'll find out whether that's a must-buy for Booster boosters when we get to May 6.

You can read the complete list of solicitations on Newsarama.com.

An April Full of Fools

I hope you enjoy Booster Gold's team-up with DC's omnipresent femme fatale, Harley Quinn, in March's previously-solicited Harley Quinn #71, because the team-up will be continuing this April.

Per the issue solicitation at Newsarama.com:

© DC Comics

HARLEY QUINN #71
written by SAM HUMPHRIES
art by SAMI BASRI
cover by GUILLEM MARCH
Some mysteries just don’t want to be solved! As Harley digs deeper into the death of her friend, it becomes clear that there are forces in Los Angeles that don’t want her this close to the truth. Will Harley be broken by the City of Angels, or will she be able to avenge her friend’s death? And will she be able to convince Booster Gold that he is not her crime-fighting partner and never will be?
ON SALE April 1, 2020 · $3.99 US

That soliciation text.... I'm choosing to believe that it's a joke, and that Booster doesn't really want to be the sidekick of the nutcase who tried to kill him in the pages of Heroes in Crisis.

I guess we'll find out the truth this April Fools Day.

Why Don't They Just Get Married Already

A "fictionalized" Booster Gold showed up at the end of Harley Quinn #66 in part to satisfy the title's obligatory "Year of the Villain" crossover event.

The next month, in Harley Quinn #67, faux Booster returned as justification for a trip through the DC Universe's never-ending series of "Crisis" events. (Was this the same "fictionalized" Booster seen in the previous issue, or a different interpretation? It's impossible to tell, so assume whatever you like.)

Finally, this March, it looks like the "real" Harley and Booster will finally cross paths for the first time since Heroes in Crisis.

Per the issue solicitation at Newsarama.com:

© DC Comics

HARLEY QUINN #71
written by SAM HUMPHRIES
art by SAMI BASRI
cover by RILEY ROSSMO
Harley thought a little trip to Los Angeles would help her cope with grief, but grief followed her all the way to the West Coast. When a new friend of hers dies, she knows in her heart there is foul play at work. She’ll have to put down her mallet and pick up a magnifying glass to prove her friend was murdered. And will Booster Gold help her investigation or only hinder it?
ON SALE March 4, 2020 · $3.99 US

Attention DC: you had me at Skeets on the cover.

Thanks to Rob Snow for alerting me to this coming event.

Move Along

It's a good thing that February is the shortest month of the year, because it doesn't look like we'll be seeing any new Booster Gold comics in February 2020 if DC's solicitations are correct.

The only place I see Booster is in a reprint collection, and it doesn't even ship until March!

HARLEY QUINN VOL. 4: THE FINAL TRIAL
“Year of the Villain” arrives in Harley Quinn, even if Harley is doing her best to avoid it! Lex Luthor has an “offer” for Harley, and he won’t take no for an answer—so get ready for Harley-er Quinn! And Harley asks the inevitable question—who is DC’s “Villain of the Year”? It’s an award-show like no other, as DC’s best of the worst celebrate themselves in the Hall of Doom, with the winners picked by the fans! Collects Harley Quinn #64, 65, 66, 67, 6869 and Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year #1, including alternate pages.
ON SALE March 25, 2020

Maybe Booster boosters will have better luck next month.

You can find the full list of February solicitations on Newsarama.com.
