Future Found

The comics industry is slowly getting back to normal, as you can tell by the release of solicitations for upcoming releases. While it doesn't look like our hero will be appearing in any of DC's August 2020 comics, the publisher's latest solicitations do include a confirmation of something we first spotted last month:

© DC Comics

BOOSTER GOLD: FUTURE LOST HC
written by DAN JURGENS and others
art by DAN JURGENS and others
new cover by DAN JURGENS and NORM RAPMUND
The original solo series for Booster Gold, self-serving hero from the future, concludes with this collection of Dan Jurgens's formative mid-'80s stories! Booster finds himself a wanted man, and then lands in the polychromatic sights of the Rainbow Raider! Later, Superman gets in the middle of a battle between Booster Gold and…Booster Gold? Collects Booster Gold #13-25, pages from Millennium #3-6 and #7, Action Comics #594, Secret Origins #35, and more.
ON SALE 09.01.20

That's right, the companion volume to the superb Booster Gold: The Big Fall collection will be in your Local Comic Shop this September. What could that "and more" mean? I'm giddy with anticipation.

See Newsarama.com for the full list of DC's August coming attractions.

Circling Home

In case you missed it, the big news in comics publishing last week was DC Comics' announcement that they will be resuming new comic book releases tomorrow, Tuesday, April 28. Diamond Comic Distributors remains closed until at least the middle of May, so these releases will be coming by way of mail-order retailers (per Newsarama.com).

The first thing Booster Gold fans need to know is that DC has rescheduled Harley Quinn #72, originally planned for an April 1 release, to May 12.

The second thing Booster Gold fans need to know is how to get their hands on this issue. Many stores will still be shuttered by local and state ordinances, and there are some unanswered questions about how DC's new (temporary?) distribution partners will be handling orders.

Personally, I expect I'll have to order my copy online. I guess we'll see what we see as we get closer to May 12.

Future Release: Booster Gold: Future Lost

No new comics today, and still no news about when we might get our next New Comic Book Day. However, Booster booster Aaron has found something very interesting on the website of book publisher Penguin Random House.

Booster Gold: Future Lost

Per the listing at http://prhinternationalsales.com/book/?isbn=9781779506726:

Booster Gold: Future Lost
Written by Dan Jurgens
Illustrated by Dan Jurgens
HARDCOVER $39.99 US DC Comics
On sale Sep 01, 2020 | 400 Pages | 978-1-77950-672-6

BOOSTER GOLD IS THE HERO OF TOMORROW...TODAY!

Booster Gold knows that being a superhero is a good business for three reasons: money, fame, and adventure! But Booster will have to learn that the easy life of super-heroics comes with results he could've never imagined.

Follow along on Booster's incredible and time-bending adventures--but what happens when the golden boy of the present...returns to the future? If Booster Gold is going back to the 25th century...he's going to need some superheroic help...maybe even a partner? What will Booster's future hold?!

Collects
Secret Origins #35, Action Comics #594, Who's Who Update 1987 #1, Booster Gold #13-25, Millennium #3-7

That's such good news, it's almost worth staying inside all spring and summer for!

Times may be tough, but I promise to still have $40 in my bank account to buy this when it hits shelves this September (Coronavirus permitting). I doubt I'll be the only one.

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.
