Red, Blue, and Gold

With tornadoes and fools now in the rear-view mirror, let's get back to what's really important around here: the awesome awesomeness of Booster Gold.

Last week while I was taking a forced sabbatical from the Internet, artist Michel Fiffe teased his upcoming story in the Superman: Red & Blue anthology with a step-by-step construction of this panel:

I love the fact that our golden hero will be appearing in glorious black and white — with flight ring *and* high collar! — in Superman's comic. Stealing Booster's color is probably a ploy by the Man of Steel to prevent Booster from outshining him. (Again.) The Rainbow Raider would be proud.

You can see the complete breakdown of Fiffe's panel art on Twitter.com. And you can buy a copy of Superman: Red & Blue #3 at your Local Comic Shop on May 18.

I'm Your Huckleberry

I've got a few things I want to say about Generations Forged, but I'm waiting until it's been out for at least a week so that I don't accidentally spoil anything for anyone. To a lesser extent, the same goes for Future State: Suicide Squad #2 too.

While we pass the time, let's all reminisce about that time Booster Gold travelled back to the Old West to match his fingergun draw speed against DC's Western hero, Nighthawk (and his partner, Cinnamon), an event immortalized in this old-timey long exposure photograph:

It looks improvised, but Booster had to hold that pose for 20 seconds!

Okay, so that's not a hundred-year-old sepia-toned photo but a commission from the incomparable Doc Shaner for Booster art collector The Happy Sorceress, recently shared via Twitter.com.

Photo or drawing, I'm sure you agree that whatever it is, it's Boosterrific!

A Pretty Good Placeholder

I was working on something else to post here today, but I ran out of time (or, more accurately, I overloaded on work).

In any event, by way of apology, I'm going to lean on Booster booster Cort, who recently added this piece, drawn by his friend, Julius-LZL, to his Booster Gold commission sketchbook:

Booster Gold versus Doomsday by Julius-LZL for Cort Carpenter

This scene is a re-imagining of Booster Gold's first meeting with Doomsday, originally presented in Justice League America #69. If it had gone down this way in 1992, today we'd probably be calling Doomsday "Cupcake."

Thanks for bailing me out, Cort (especially since you didn't know that's what you'd be doing).

Art Stalker

It's been half a year since we last saw images from Susan's Booster Gold sketchbook, but that doesn't mean she hasn't been busy.

Susan has posted both of these beauties to her Twitter account in recent months:

Booster Gold commission by Jeremy Haun

I think they're both pretty darn Boosterrific.

Don't forget that you can see more of Susan's pieces in her Flickr.com account.

3000 Missed Opportunities

Your periodic reminder that the world is not fair:

I proposed a Beetle-Booster series that would have been a spin-off from JL 3000...but DC didn't go for it. @JMDeMatteis Feb 5, 2021

Justice League 3000 was cancelled in 2015, just as DC was entering the Rebirth era and restoring much of the history that the New 52 had abruptly jettisoned. As the name suggests, Justice League 3000 took place in the distant future of the DCU, and perhaps the company was more interested in looking backward at the time.

Or maybe the obstacle was then-publisher Dan DiDio, who rather famously treated the entire Justice League International era roster with something approaching open disdain. It's hard to imagine DiDio okaying DeMatteis's return to the characters for more than a few issues at at time.

(In fairness, it should be mentioned that DeMatteis is hardly the only artist to be denied access to Booster in the past decade. You may remember that DC also shot down Booster book proposals by Tony Lee and Ngozi Ukazu.)

Will things be different in 2021? If the hints that Blue and Gold will be back at work in the DCU after Infinite Frontier have any veracity, I sure hope so.
