It was announced over the weekend that Action Comics #1000 will restore Superman's red trunks.
I think it's great that DC is finally restoring the traditional Superman look most strongly associated with the character. Say what you will about looking to the future, but when you've been wearing one costume for the better part of 80 years, people sort of expect to see you wearing that costume. Truth and Justice don't change, so I don't see why the American Way should, either. Right is right if nobody's right, and Superman's red trunks are just right.
Now that we've fixed Superman, we can we move on to more important things. Like restoring Booster Gold's long-lost high collar!
Don't worry, oblong Skeets. Once we get the collar back, you're next.

Maybe you've heard that the newest Batman video game, Batman Arkham Knight, has had a rough launch. Chock full of bugs, it is reportedly all but unplayable on PCs and can lock-up PS4s.
The game doesn't get everything wrong, though:
That screenshot, taken from the 11:24 minute mark of the Youtube video "Batman Arkham Knight - Justice League Easter Eggs" by Scerebro, shows that (a picture of) Booster Gold is in the game. If you look close, you'll see Skeets is there, too!
I should also mention that Blaze Comics signs can be seen throughout the city:

Now we have a reason to play. Assuming we could get our hands on a playable version.

Let's get this week started the right way: with cosplay!
And while we're on the subject, I hope you didn't miss this unique cosplay that Osyrus posted in the Boosterrific Forum last week. It's a great costume that deserves some recognition.
Great job everybody.

A little tip from Booster Gold:
If you're taking your significant other out for a romantic dinner, don't spend the whole evening talking about yourself. Oh, Booster!

Russ Burlingame's latest "International Exchange" column with Dan Jurgens will soon be live at The Outhouse. A preview of the column is already posted at Comic Book.com. Jurgens seems to be everywhere right now -- in addition to last week's two linked interviews, Jurgens is also interviewed at Comic Book Movie -- but Burlingame still finds a way to get some good information from the typically tight-lipped Jurgens, even if it isn't strictly Booster Gold related.
ComicBook.com: Hey, whatever happened to thought balloons? You never really see them anymore, and I always kinda look at Guy's monologue at the end [of Justice League International #3] and think, "If only he'd been quieter...!".
DJ: Thought balloons have largely disappeared from comics, in general. There are circumstances where they work, others where they don't. My general approach is that if one member of the team has thought balloons, let's say Rocket Red, then they all should. And Batman never should, in my view.
I suspect that Booster's last thought balloons appeared in Extreme Justice, 16 years ago. These days internal dialogue is almost always replaced by first person narrative boxes. This isn't necessarily a narrative improvement as much as it is an artistic convention.
That said, it is awfully hard to image Batman showing thought balloons in a team setting in 2011, isn't it?
