I've Got Nothing

While trying to think up something to post here today (given the ongoing lack of new news about our favorite super hero, this keeps getting harder and harder), I discovered that Booster Gold has never appeared in a comic book released on February 24.

That seemed odd to me. So I looked a little further. It turns out there are 44 dates in a calendar year that have never seen a Booster Gold release. Trivia: February 29 has seen the release of a Booster Gold comic, but February 28 has not.

Calendar dates don't fall on the same day of the week every year. A quick visit to Google tells me that it takes 28 years for a leap year calendar to rematch dates to days of the week (though non-leap years repeat sooner). Given that new comics only come out on Wednesday, that's a long time to go to get Booster a shot at every date on the calendar. I guess it's a good thing he's already got February 29 covered.

As for no Booster Gold comic being released on February 24, that doesn't look like it will be changing today. The next opportunity will arrive in 2021. Maybe by then, Booster Gold will have gotten his shot at a "rebirth" of his own.
