As a general rule for this series, I'm going to try to steer away from full-page panels. But sometimes they're just too good to ignore.
Like this page from Booster Gold volume 1, number 8, depicting the very first flight of Booster Gold in costume:
This selection will come as no surprise to longtime Boosterrific.com boosters, as it was the panel selected to be basis of the imagemap for this site's original homepage in June 2007:
What a long, strange trip it's been, eh, Booster?

It sounds a stupid thing to type out loud, but I'm having a hard time mustering enthusiasm for posting about Booster Gold.
It's not Booster's fault. I'm having a hard time mustering enthusiasm for just about anything right now.
Independence Day happens to be my favorite holiday, so I'm just going to take an extended weekend off and hope that the spirit of John Adams will reinvigorate me. (He always had a knack for mustering enthusiasm, that John Adams.)
While I'm on leave, if you're in need of some Boosterrific entertainment this weekend, perhaps you'll enjoy the recent JLUCast podcast on the topic of the undisputed greatest Justice League Unlimited episode, "The Greatest Story Never Told," starring one Booster Gold. I must admit that I haven't mustered the enthusiasm to listen to it myself, but I trust Shag and company over at The Fire and Water Podcast Network to do good work.
Enjoy your weekend.

A thunderstorm came through my town and knocked out our power just as I was composing today's post at about 1AM. Without wifi, that's where it'll stay. Power company estimates a fix won't be in until nearly dawn, so I'm going to bed, and this is all the post you're going to get, Booster boosters.
While I'm sitting in the dark, may I suggest you go read some other site instead. I hear from The Blot that BleedingCool.com is hinting that Booster might have a bigger role to play after Dark Crisis is over. And Rob Snow says that Booster is in the newly published The DC Book of Lists, available for Kindle download right now at Amazon.com.
Or go outside and throw a ball for your dog. Not everything in the world is about comic books, you know.

Human Target #4 is out today. The issue is essentially an extended interrogation of Ted Kord by Christopher Chance — interrupted occasionally by crime fighting with Ice! Booster Gold makes no appearance, but he sure gets talked about a lot.

I am officially on record as no fan of writer Tom King's characterizations, but golly, that seems like a very insightful conversation about a couple of characters that I am very, very familiar with. In fact, I liked this entire comic book in spite of my misgivings about King's work. (Greg Smallwood's art is no disappointment, either.)
Unrelated to that, may I offer special thanks to Booster booster J, who has recently been alerting me to typos here on the site. I'm fixing them as fast as I can, J! Thanks for bringing them to my attention; I appreciate your help in making Boosterrific.com better.

Boosterrific.com is, and is intended to be, a niche website for Booster Gold fans.
The comics lists and annotations are designed to provide information about the complete adventures of the character and his world, its creators, and its inhabitants. The goal of the blog is to capture all those Booster Gold references outside of comic books.
Those are all great, and I'm pretty happy with them. But the question I'm asking today is how could it be better?
What pieces of information about Booster's adventures am I missing? What else could I do that other sites don't? If you have any ideas, let me know.
