What Booster Gold Fans Learned From FanDome

DC's self-contained convention was this past weekend, and while it was a smorgasbord for fans of super hero movies, television, and video games, there really wasn't much news about DC's plans for comic books. And since Booster Gold doesn't exist in any current movies, television, or video games, our hero was nowhere to be found.

The closest we got to Booster was this Easter Egg spotted by the eagle-eyed Ouoya (@Ouoya on Twitter.com) in the Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League video game trailer:

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League is set in the same continuity as Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham series of games. Blaze Comics appeared in Gotham City in Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) and Batman: Arkham Knight (2015).

It's good to know that Blaze is still doing well enough to have a storefront in Metropolis, but you're going to have to wait a while to see it for yourself. Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League isn't scheduled to be released before August 2022.

So maybe that's not the Booster Gold bonanza Booster boosters might have been hoping for, but it's not nothing. And since FanDome was split into two weeks with most of the comics-related content pushed to September 12, we may still hear more about Booster yet.

Thanks for bringing that screenshot to our attention, Ouoya.

That Should Have Been Task Force S

Booster Gold may still be missing in action, but at least we still get Skeets. Kind of.

Last week's Suicide Squad #25 seems to imply that Skeets (shown but not named) was put to work by Amanda Waller in a previous version of the Suicide Squad. Did Skeets participate Voluntarily? Does Booster know?

Thanks to MetalWoman for the intel.

New Old Releases: Suicide Squad

The trade collection of the final issues of the canceled Secret Six is published today. Included in the collection will be Booster Gold's appearance in Secret Six #36 for those that missed Booster's showdown with the Six in the rush towards the New 52.

On another note, Blue Beetle and Captain Atom -- both of which see their 5th issue released today -- are two titles that drop within range of the next swing of DC's cancellation hatchet after DC's announced cancellations last week. If DC is looking to make some space for a "Third Wave" of titles, these characters should be getting nervous. Since both have history with previous incarnations of the JLI, what's the chance that after their seemingly-inevitable cancellation these characters will end up on Booster's Justice League?

Skeets would probably prefer that you not buy any of these issues if it means any possibility of a return for a Booster and Skeets title.

Booster Gold Versus Suicide Squad

Last week, DC announced the first casualties of the New 52. Blackhawks, Hawk and Dove, Men of War, Mister Terrific, O.M.A.C. and Static Shock were among the worst-performing titles of the New 52. They will be replaced by some familiar titles in the next three months as DC seeks to inject some new blood into the rapidly decaying New 52.

Fortunately, JLI is still a top-50 seller, though it is interesting to note that even it is losing ground rapidly to a rather Boosterrific comparable:

Justice League International volume 3 vs Booster Gold volume 2 sales

At this rate, it should be expected that sales for the still-on-the-shelf Justice League International #5 will be worse than sales were for Booster Gold #5 in 2007. Granted, these numbers don't take into account the unknown digital sales of the JLI series, but it would still seem that Batman and Guy Gardner aren't helping promote sales significantly more than Booster Gold could do himself. Who would have expected that?

Booster Gold had two things that JLI doesn't. Since one of those things was Geoff Johns who is already busy doing what he does best reinvigorating Aquaman, the JLI will need to hang their hopes on the other one: Skeets, the JLI needs you!
