 Super-Team Ups Continue

Friday, May 19, 2017

I don't know how Ross Pearsall does it, but he continues to churn out some amazing covers at Super-Team Family Presents.... In the past week alone, he's given us pairings of Groot and Chewbacca, Sgt. Rock and Cobra Commander, and Captain Carrot and Donald Duck. Whew!

But what earns him his latest mention here on Boosterrific.com is the return of Skeets' all-robot super team, Robo Force:

Super-Team Family Presents #1850

Skeets versus Brainiac! Why hasn't that happened in DC Comics before now?

As a bonus, check out this cover featuring the Blue Beetle's new partner.

Super-Team Family Presents #1855

Thanks for all your hard work, Ross.

 Team-Up of the Future

Monday, February 15, 2016

We were talking about him just last week, and Ross Pearsall has already done it again! For a recent Super-Team Family Presents cover, Booster Gold crosses paths with Mike Baron's and Steve Rude's hero of the future, Nexus:

Super-Team Family Presents #1401

(This is Booster's second Super-Team Family Presents cover in 2016. He previously appeared in the background of Captain America's declaration of war against the Marvel Universe.)

I always love the covers Pearsall creates each day for his site, Super-Team Family ...The Lost Issues, as evidenced by the many times I've showcased his previous Booster Gold team-ups. Thanks, Ross.

 Dan Jurgens Hates Cowards

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

A few days ago, Booster Gold creator Dan Jurgens made a pretty strong statement on Twitter.

Perhaps my least favorite shot of BG ever. Running in total fear from a threat? Have always hated that image. @thedanjurgens

The inspiration for Jurgens' comment was Booster booster Keith Callbeck's post of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family mash-up cover of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle running from the Hulk. Pearsall's inspiration was the opening splash page of Booster Gold, Volume 2, #34, drawn by Chris Batista in 2010. Specifically, it is this panel by Batista that Jurgens takes issue with:

It's easy to understand Jurgens' dissatisfaction with Batista's choice of poses and expressions. That panel has gained some traction on the Internet in recent years. You may have seen it copied by Blue and Gold cosplayers. Howard Porter's 2015 cover for Justice League 3000 #12 saw a similar scene of the panicked pair.

That wasn't always their reaction to trouble. In their Justice League International heyday, Beetle and Booster were chased by mobs of angry citizens, vampires, middle-eastern dictators, runaway islands, demons, and countless super villains. Yet Kevin Maguire, the artist most associated with the Blue and Gold pairing, never showed Blue and Gold turning tail in fear.

So what's the right way to depict Blue Beetle and Booster Gold running for their lives? Here's Dan Jurgens' take on the scenario in Booster Gold, Volume 2, #7 (2008):

Ok, so maybe Beetle is still scared. But look at Booster. What a hero!
