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

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

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:
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.

Today's the big day!
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.

Newsarama.com has the November solicitations for DC Comics, and it looks like we'll be getting another rematch between two of DC's best heroes.
HEROES IN CRISIS #3
written by TOM KING
art and cover by CLAY MANN
variant cover by RYAN SOOK
The Man of Steel versus…Booster Gold?! Superman finds out the hard way that Booster can be a formidable opponent when his back’s against the wall. Of course, being the prime suspect in a superhero massacre and exposing a secret trauma hospital for metahumans will do just that. Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash combine their detective skills to investigate what went awry at Sanctuary and uncover a serious glitch in the system—not to mention an explosive, spoiler-ific secret!
ON SALE November 28 · $3.99
Russ Burlingame writes about what this solicitation means for the "who will die" aspect of this series at ComicBook.com. (Warning: Link could be considered to contain spoilers.) Since Russ has that angle covered, I'm going to focus on what's really important here: the fight between the Man of Steel and the Booster of Gold.
In Round One (Booster Gold #7, 1986), Superman (with a timely assist from Skeets) taught upstart Booster Gold a necessary lesson in how a hero acts.
In Round Two (Action Comics Annual #4, 1992), Booster was outclassed by Superman, who was at the time in the thrall of Eclipso.
In Round Three, (Booster Gold #8, 2008), Superman, this time controlled by Max Lord, ambushed and made short work of Booster and his makeshift team of Freedom Fighters.
Of course, all of those previous fights were
wiped from history by Flashpoint, so Heroes in Crisis #3 isn't technically a rematch. (As pointed out by @FAdamF on Twitter, much of what happened before Flashpoint is still part of most characters' history thanks to Rebirth. Therefore, these fights did *technically* happen, even if no one quite remembers it.) Given Booster's dismal record in this match-up, that might be a good thing.
We'll find out if Booster can finally defeat the Metropolis Marvel this November.
