I don't speak Spanish, but I know gold when I see it.
According to the Spanish-language website of the Argentine illustrator Jeremias Janikow, this sketch is of "Buster Gold (el banana del futuro)." With a subtitle like that, I have to suspect that calling Booster "Buster" is an intentional slight. Poor Booster. No respect even in Argentina.
When I first spotted this image, I had no idea what "mate cocido" was. According to Wikipedia, I now know that it is a tea-like drink prepared from the yerba mate plant that is popular in South America. The things that you learn running a Booster Gold fansite!
This is just one of several exceptional superheroes sketches by Janikow that can be found on Janikow Blog!. Thanks to The Day the Web Stood Stupid for drawing this tasty art to our attention.
