Wanted: Michael Carter

Kevin Munson writes

I picked up Swamp Thing Winter Special and found something interesting for Booster boosters. This book has a 2nd story in it that was not finished by the late great Len Wein. In this story there is a scene of the new Sheriff of Houma, LA putting up a wanted sign of Swampy. Next to that sign is another wanted poster of a Michael Carter. What kind of shenanigans could Booster have been up to...?

Hmm. What kind of backwater police department is this, anyway? Those wanted posters seem awfully amateurish. If I were Booster's lawyer, I'd argue this as a case of mistaken identity. I mean, "Michael Carter" has to be a common name, right? And everyone knows Booster's hair is blond, not brown.

As Kevin states, the unfinished story's script is included in the issue, and it makes no reference to the "Michael Carter" wanted poster. Was this added by artist Norm Breyfogle? Breyfogle has never drawn Booster Gold before. Does this count? What do you think, boosters?

(Good spot, Kevin.)

Vertigo: Returning to the Fold?

There's a rumor running around out there that the DC-owned Vertigo characters may soon be back in the DC Universe. Good idea or bad idea, I don't know, but I could totally get behind a story where Booster Gold tries to hang with John Constantine. After all, both characters have already been to Hell and back, an achievement not just any hero can claim.
