 Commenting Problems

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

I've recently learned that some commenters are having difficulty with the Google "I am not a robot" Captcha swallowing their comments. That problem may be especially common for users of the Chrome browser.

If this has happened to you, please try using Chrome's incognito mode, deleting your cookies, or changing to a different browser before commenting. If none of these solutions resolves the problem for you, please contact me directly via the Contact page and let me know. (That form doesn't use the Google Captcha.)

 Very Old Release: Captain Atom 10

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Booster booster José got in touch to tell Boosterrific of a hole in our collection of Booster Gold comics. Somehow, we missed Booster Gold's appearance in 1987's Captain Atom #10. That's a 30-year-old oversight!

In our defense, Booster doesn't actually appear in the issue. What you see above is a static image of Booster (and his teammates) being reviewed on a video monitor inside the Pentagon as they discuss Captain Atom's recent addition to the United Nations-sanctioned Justice League International.

Elsewhere in the issue, news reports (and a helpful editorial box) peg the events of this issue as taking place simultaneously with those seen in Justice League International #8. So while the United States military was worrying about Booster's anti-American activities, we know our hero was busy in Paris hitting on (and being shot down by) Catherine Cobert, the administrative head of the local JLI Embassy. It's a small DC Universe!

Thanks for the spot, José. Follow his lead, Boosterphiles; if you see Booster somewhere and you don't think Boosterrific knows it, you can always drop a tip via the site's Contact form.

 As Good a Day as Any for a Hurricane

Monday, September 11, 2017

Captain Atom #16
(1988)

As I type this on Sunday night, the television news is telling me that what's left of Hurricane Irma is headed straight for me. While I don't expect any damage (fingers crossed), I do expect power outages.

Additionally, this Thursday I'm supposed to leave town to attend a wedding. (On the Georgia coast, no less, assuming it's still there on Thursday.) This is going to make blogging extra difficult.

Therefore, I'm going to go ahead and queue up some blog posts for the rest of this week. If there's any big, new Booster Gold news this week (hey, it could happen), I'll cover it next week.

Enjoy your week, everybody!

I've been tinkering behind the scenes here at Boosterrific.com recently. Some of the changes you may have already noticed. I've revised styling on comments forms, created a contact page, and added some color to the mobile landing page.

I also took a look at the database to check on some dates. You won't be surprised to learn that it's been a long time since we've seen Booster Gold in a DC Universe comic.

Depending on how you want to count it:

It's been 44 days since Booster appeared in a few panels in Injustice 2 #5 (July 5, 2017).

It's been 142 days since his questionably continuity appearance in Booster Gold/The Flintstones #1 (March 29, 2017).

It's been 303 days since his one-panel background cameo in Green Lanterns #9 (October 19, 2016).

It's been 716 days (1 year, 11 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days) since his last significant part in Bat-Mite #4 (September 2, 2015)!

The guys at my Local Comic Shop don't even recognize me anymore! At this point, I should be happy to see Mr. Oz revealed as Booster just so that I can see my hero back in action.

Anyway. Enjoy the new, improved Boosterrific.com. If anyone spots any malfunctions, please let me know.

 (Over) Ten Years and Counting

Monday, July 31, 2017

I probably should have mentioned this weeks ago, but Boosterrific.com turned 10 years old in June. At last count, the site now has nearly 2,600 pages not including blog entries. Whew!

The adventures of Booster Gold could already fill an encyclopedia — do kids today know what those were? — and I hope our hero is still far from done.

I offer a hearty thanks to all of you, the Booster boosters who have supported this site over the years. If I could go back in time, I would do it all over again.
