Ooshies for Our Hero

The Blot dropped by on Twitter to point out another unusual Booster Gold product, something called an "Ooshie."

@TheBlotSays via Twitter.com 2018-12-27

This is, apparently, the fourth wave of Ooshies pencil toppers, which means that I am very old and out of touch with... whatever is going on here.

Ooshies are generally sold via blind bags, meaning you never know what Ooshie you might be buying and might spend forever hunting one down to find out what they really look like. Luckily for me, I live in the Internet age. Voila!

That image comes via eBay, where you can bid on your very Booster Gold Ooshie here. What a wonderful world.

Thanks, Blot!

Salesman of the Future

Artist Derec Donovan has drawn Ame-Comi Girls and Batman '66 for DC Comics. And now he's drawn Booster Gold, too.

Booster Gold commission by Derec Donovan via Twitter

Donovan posted this recent commission on Twitter as @DerecDonovan74. If you like what you see, you might want to know that he's still taking orders for Christmas commissions through December 15.

Good work, Derec.

Dream the Impossible Dream

I'm not sure what to make of this Tom King tweet from Friday:

Coming up in Heroes in Crisis. Art by @Clay_Mann_ and @tomeu_morey. @TomKingTK 30 Nov 2018

We've known since New York Comic Con back in October that King has been planning on pairing Blue and Gold for Heroes in Crisis. This tweet, presumably, is the proof that it is indeed coming. But how?

The Booster Gold in Heroes in Crisis has never been a partner of any incarnation of the Blue Beetle (so far as we know), so is their first meeting? Or a reunion of a previously unseen, shared past in the DC Rebirth Universe? Or a vision in Booster's head generated by Sanctuary?

For answers to these (and many other questions), we'll just have to keep reading future issues of Heroes in Crisis.

Lick It Before It Melts

I went looking through the wasteland of Twitter for a tweet I saw last week that I wanted to comment on here. My search got sidetracked by a truly awesome doodle from Things Rocco Drew In Class:

Booster Gold gumball eye pop

Yep. That's a Booster Gold gumball eye popsicle, and it is far more Boosterrific than whatever it was that I was looking for.

Rocco has some other doodles of Booster enjoying his own ice cream likeness and an accompanying Blue Beetle pop on his twitter feed at @roccodraws.

Keep up the good work, Rocco.

New Release: Heroes in Crisis 1

Today's the big day!

© DC Comics

A preview of Heroes in Crisis #1 is online at DCComics.com.

As you can see on the cover above, the series' limited run has been extended from seven issues to nine. Per Friday's announcement at DCComics.com:

First announced as a seven-issue series by Tom King and artist Clay Mann, HEROES IN CRISIS now expands to nine issues, with King collaborators Lee Weeks and Mitch Gerads providing art for the added issues. These issues will provide added insight into King and Mann’s epic tale, with Weeks (BATMAN/ELMER FUDD) handling art duties for issue #3 and Eisner award-winning Gerads (MISTER MIRACLE) providing art for issue #7.

HEROES IN CRISIS #1, written by Tom King, art by Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey, lettered by Clayton Cowles and edited by Jamie S. Rich and Brittany Holzherr, hits shelves September 26.

King elaborated on Twitter, explaining "we were going to do 7 issues of HiC and 2 HiC 'specials,' and instead we (I) decided it would work better if we incorporated the specials into the numbering." So this isn't a big change (and also probably explains the mysterious disappearance of that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Heroes in Crisis prelude special that was solicited by Dynamic Forces back in July). Good to know.

Also of note is King's recent description of Booster Gold's role in the series. He spoke to Kiel Phegly of CBR.com:

CBR: Is there a piece of DCU lore or a corner of the comics that might not be central to the action that you really wanted to bring in just to play with it in some small way?

King: There are C-level characters that are fun. I mean, Booster Gold! The trinity are the stars of the series, but the other two star characters are Booster and Harley. Booster to me doesn't seem like a character I'm pulling off the shelf because he feels like someone at the heart of the DCU. Maybe I've been watching too much Justice League Action over and over with my kids. He's the center of that show, and he's amazing.

That's not so good to know. While I agree that Booster is amazing, I'm not eager to see JL Action's goofy interpretation become his dominant characterization in the mainstream DCnU. (Does anyone remember what Elongated Man, Doctor Light, and Jean Loring were like *before* Identity Crisis? Just saying.)

Buy Heroes in Crisis #1 from your Local Comic Shop and make Skeets happy.
