This Day in History: Is Batman Still Dead?

Oh, 2010. How good we had it at the time. Booster Gold appeared regularly in his own title, Justice League: Generation Lost, and Time Masters: Vanishing Point, the first issue of which was released 4 years ago today.

Four years later, we still don't know who Rip Hunter's mother is. (Or for that matter who the Black Beetle was.) They say time heals all wounds, but that healing leaves some notable scars.

Booster Gold Versus Team Titans

Just for kicks, I thought that I'd compare the sales for Booster Gold's three 2010 series: Booster Gold, Justice League: Generation Lost, and Time Masters: Vanishing Point. While I knew what the the sales numbers were, it's kind of surprising to see them stacked against each other.

Booster Gold Sales Comparison 2010/2011

Booster Gold was the only ongoing series of the three and was also consistently the worst seller of the bunch. Time Masters did only marginally better, despite featuring Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern, three of DC's biggest sellers on a monthly basis. The best seller was a book comprised primarily of characters who have repeatedly proven themselves incapable of sustaining enough fan interest to maintain individual series.

I know that there were more factors at play than just characters (cost, tie-in, promotion, creative teams, etc.), but it would seem that the ensemble cast approach really works.

New Release: Time Masters TPB

With Justice League: Generation Lost #22 released 2 weeks ago, you might have expected to see #23 this week. But you won't. Justice League: Generation Lost #23 won't ship until next week. This is not the first 3-week gap between issues, but with only 2 issues to go, it should be the last.

This week the only Booster Gold you're likely to see is in the Time Masters: Vanishing Point collected trade. If you passed on individual Time Masters issues waiting on the trade, now's your chance. And you're in luck: the trade is advertised at $14.99. If you bought the 6 individual issues, you spent $23.94 for 138 pages of story (including covers, excluding variant covers). Considering that the trade is advertised at 144 pages, it appears that good things do come to those who wait. Buy it and make Skeets happy.

New Releases: Time Masters Vanishing Point #6

Could this be the day that finally sees the release of Time Masters: Vanishing Point #6, the long-awaited, rumored kick-off to "Flashpoint"? I'll believe it when I see it. If it does turn up on your Local Comic Shop, buy it and make Skeets happy.

Gold Exchange: Time Masters #5

It's really starting to look like I need to make Tuesdays "Gold Exchange Day." Russ Burlingame released another "Gold Exchange" column at last week with Dan Jurgens commenting on Time Masters: Vanishing Point #5. To pull a quote:

"Supernova and his wife will be addressed next issue." -- Dan Jurgens

I know that I can't wait.
