Variations on a Theme

Earlier this week, we learned via aiptcomics.com that DC will be revisiting the Flashpoint universe in a seven-issue event called Flashpoint Beyond starting in April.

It remains to be seen what role (if any) Booster Gold will be playing in this event, but we do know that he will be on the 1:50 variant cover to Flashpoint Beyond #0 drawn by Todd Nauck:

Now, a "1:50 variant" means that for every 50 copies a comic shop orders of the regular cover, they *should* get 1 of these. (I say "should" because distribution shortages and allocations have been known to happen.) I suggest that any Booster boosters who wants this in their collection go ahead and preorder 51 copies of Flashpoint Beyond #0 from their their LCS.

But that's not the only variant cover we'll be seeing Booster on in April!

As you may have heard, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that the Justice League will be killed off in April's Justice League #75. (Don't worry too much: comics being what they are, I'm sure they'll get better.)

In a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the "death" of Superman (see what I mean?), one of the many variant covers of Justice League #75 will be drawn by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund and feature many former leaguers, including Booster Gold and two Blue Beetles!

This cover should be easier to get than a 1:50, but we'll have to find out more as we get closer to April.

Here They Come to Save the Week

It's been a rough week for me, so I'm very pleased to end it with this brilliantly gleeful "scribble" from Mike Hartigan (via Twitter.com):

Hey kids! It’s Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (…and Skeets)! #teamblueandgold baby! -- @mikehartigan Twitter.com Jan 5, 2022

Hard to stay in a bad mood looking at those two (and a half) having so much fun!

Dress for the Job You Want

The clock is ticking down on 2021 (thank goodness!), but there's still time for a little Booster Gold/Blue Beetle cosplay, as demonstrated by boostergolddevo at C2E2:

Not only have I been binging @JLIpodcast but I also cosplayed this past weekend with my lovely fiancé! We have been talking about the JLI nonstop this week! Thinking about starting a pod for the blue and gold Face with monocle What can I say? I’ve been inspired Man shrugging -- @boostergoldvevo Twitter.com December 18, 2021

Looking sharp, you two! Click the image above to see even more @boostergoldvevo cosplay pics as "TheRealBoosterGold" on Twitter.com.

Starting Over

Latest awesome thing spotted over the weekend on Twitter.com:

35 years ago #BoosterGold arrived from the future to be part of #dccomics's pantheon. Here's our remake of his debut cover. -- @MarianoPNavarro Twitter.com 2021-12-11

This reimagining of the original Booster Gold #1 cover is by Mariano Navarro & Hernan Cabrera. I'm not going to say that I think it's better than the original, but I will say that I *would* buy that comic book.

Just Two of the Guys

Another thing spotted this week on Twitter:

Attention Heroes and Villains, we need your help! Can you identify these two mysterious DC characters who will be joining in the fight against extinction? -- @DCHVGame Twitter.com Nov 29, 2021

I'd say that was supposed to be Booster Gold, Skeets, Jaime Reyes, and Khaji Da (together known as the Blue Beetle), but the tweet explicitly says there are only two "characters" there, so I must be wrong.

Looking at dcheroesandvillains.com, I see that DC Heroes & Villains is a puzzle RPG game (like Puzzle Quest?) being created by JamCity and Ludia for mobile devices that will be released... sometime in the future. Cool. That means I haven't missed anything yet.

I'll have to start paying attention to its progress. Maybe one of these days, they'll finally tell me who those two guys are.

Thanks to Logan Peterson for alerting me that this might interest Booster boosters.
