Beggars and Choosers

In response to one of my tweets earlier this week, @Space_Lt_Josh commented that there is a "real Boosterenaissance beginning to unfold right now". I couldn't agree more (except for the fact that I would spell "Boosterrenaissance" the Boosterrific-endorsed way: with two "r"s!).

Our hero has come off his own Blue and Gold mini-series to play a role in Dark Crisis, DC Vs. Vampires, and Human Target. While I have grave reservations about how he is being portrayed in some of those series, I certainly think it is for the best that the character is in position to be seen by larger audiences.

Booster booster Joe Carlo informs me that at least someone at DC Comics' parent company, DC Entertainment (a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery!) is also aware of Booster's rising visibility. He knows because he got a promotional email putting Booster in the "character spotlight."

The email directs readers to the DCComics.com character page for Booster Gold (www.dccomics.com/characters/booster-gold).

It gives Booster a glowing write-up, though I have to wonder why the article's accompanying headshot is this:

Aw, come on, guys. Couldn't you find a picture where Booster hasn't spent a year trapped in an alternate timeline hell of his own making? Oh, well. I guess you can't have everything.

Viva la Boosterrevolution!
