More of Less

Late last week, Newsarama.com released DC's solicitations for comics shipping in July. Sadly, there isn't any evidence that we'll be seeing much if any Booster Gold this summer.

Maybe that's for the best. I have no interest in DC's Marvel Zombies DCeased summer event series. If our hero shows up there, I'm trusting that some reliable Booster booster will let me know.

Meanwhile, I remind everyone that the Fire and Water Podcast Network continues its JLI Podcast series. This weekend, they covered Justice League International #25, which could just as easily be called "Blue and Gold meet Dracula." We looked at the color guide to that issue just a few months ago.

You'll find links to listen to the JLI Podcast (and others) at FireAndWaterPodcast.com.

The End Is Near

The solicitation for Heroes in Crisis #9 is out. It looks like Booster Gold will finally be on one of the Ryan Sook variant covers. Sook has created a cover for each issue of the series, each showcasing a key "traumatic" moment of a hero's (or villain's) career.

As a reminder, here are the 8 Sook covers that have been revealed so far. (His cover for issue 7 remains a secret.)

Is the suggestion that it was Harley who took all these photos for the Sanctuary files? Maybe we'll find out in Heroes in Crisis #9. Here's the full solicitation text with an appropriate spoiler warning:

The Eighth Sense

No new Booster Gold comics are coming to the shelves of your Local Comic Shop today which means that we have plenty of time to read the DC Comics solicitations for April 2019 released earlier this week. Booster Gold isn't mentioned by name, but I suspect we'll find him in at least one book:

HEROES IN CRISIS #8
written by TOM KING
art by CLAY MANN and MITCH GERADS
cover by MITCH GERADS
You’ve seen all the clues. You’ve heard the testimony and eavesdropped on the secret confessions of the World’s Greatest Super Heroes. Now, with the killer revealed, it's time to find out why. What could have driven a hero to the brink, to turn a savior into a murderer? Rifts will form between old allies, and the trinity of Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman will have their leadership challenged and will question their own judgment. Sanctuary has become something they never imagined…and it's still potentially carrying on without them!
ON SALE April 24 · $3.99 US

Though this solicitation text makes Heroes in Crisis #8 sound like the final issue, there will be a ninth issues in this mini-series. Could May bring us a surprise twist ending? Will Booster Gold see dead people? We'll find out when we get there.

In the meantime, you can find all of DC's April solicitations at Newsarama.com.

Strange Bedfellows

DC Comics' March 2019 solicitations for Heroes in Crisis #7, released yesterday, may include a bit of a spoiler, so read at your own risk.

HEROES IN CRISIS #7
written by TOM KING
art and cover by CLAY MANN
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Click here to reveal potential spoilers
ON SALE March 27 · $3.99

It seems to me that we've been getting a lot of spoiler-y details about this series recently. We got our first glimpse at the controversial cover for this issue last week, and even writer Tom King objected to the way it appears to identify the killer (and sexualize a corpse). Now comes this solicitation, which barely avoids explicitly clearing someone of suspicion of the murders.

Heroes in Crisis is a nine issue series, and we're only up to issue seven. I'm starting to think that the only way I'll get to the end without having DC spoil it early is to bury my head in some sand.

The solicitations also include two Injustice 2 collections, Volume 4 and 5, both of which reprint issues featuring appearances by Booster Gold, plus a new reprint of the Zero Hour miniseries.

You can read the solicitations for all DC books shipping in March — if you dare! — at Newsarama.com.

Murder in the Machine

Newsarama.com has DC Comics' solicitations for February 2019. Unlike January, in which will get two Heroes in Crisis issues, February has only the one:

HEROES IN CRISIS #6
written by TOM KING
art by MITCH GERADS
cover by TREVOR HAIRSINE
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Get a deeper look into the inner workings of Sanctuary. When heroes visited the facility, they relived their trauma through virtual reality, contending with the events that brought them there in the hope of reaching a meaningful resolution. That is, until the trauma took over and escalated these personal events into a full-blown crisis! Find out what pushed one of the superheroes over the edge and how it broke the machine. This special issue reunites the Eisner Award-winning MISTER MIRACLE team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads!
ON SALE February 27 · $3.99

Wait, was it Sanctuary itself that killed the heroes? I guess we'll find out in February.
