Jurgens Plays Godfather

Aaron Young interviewed Dan Jurgens at Ace Comic Con 2017, and that interview has now appeared at ComicsVerse.com. Jurgens is unusually frank about his relationship with his most famous creation.

ComicsVerse: So, moving on, you've created a lot of iconic characters in comics. My favorite is Booster Gold, and you're written Booster Gold quite a few times, and I just wondered if you feel any sort of ownership over that character.

Whether you, you know, kind of have a sort of protective over that character. You know, have you ever had it where you're, like, read an issue written by anybody else and you're like, "Oh no, that's not what Booster Gold would do!" you know, or whatever, or, you know? Just talk about that, I’m just curious.

Dan Jurgens: Yeah, that happens but for the most part, you know, I've done most of the stories that were out there. And when Keith Giffen and Marc DeMatteis, for example, were using him in JUSTICE LEAGUE, Keith always said, "We're borrowing the character."

And I always looked at that as sort of like an Earth JUSTICE LEAGUE thing anyway which was just fine and I, you know, genuinely liked the dimension that Keith brought to the character, but for the most part, it's something I do enjoy doing. I don't know if ownership is quite the right word as much as kind of I suppose it's true that I’m sort of protective of the character 'cause I can kind of know where it can go and what it can do.

While Booster Gold belongs to DC Comics to use (or ignore) at their will, Jurgens can proudly take credit that no writer has had more of a hand in guiding and developing Booster Gold. He's written nearly a fifth of all the stories in which Booster Gold appears. Only Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis come close. (They combine to about an eighth.) There are few comic book characters in history that can boast such creative consistency over so many decades.

No More Questions

Interesting to see Johns' support appear to be back-sliding among Booster Gold fans.

Last week's poll question: Who should write the next New 52 Booster Gold series? (44 votes)

Who should write the next New 52 Booster Gold series?

There will be no new post for Thanksgiving next week, so the Boosterrific.com poll is taking a 2-week hiatus. It will return in December.

Think Happy Thoughts

I still have a bit of a crush on Trixie myself.

Last week's poll question: Which character would you expect to see revealed as Booster Gold's future wife? (46 votes)

Which character would you expect to see revealed as Booster Gold's future wife?

As the latest Booster Gold drought stretches deep into its fourth month, I pose this hypothetical question about what direction you'd like the character to take in the future.

Saying Goodbye to Old Friends

I assume that those of you who voted for Jim Lee would probably love to see a Booster Gold/Gen 13 crossover. Well, me too.

Last week's poll question: Which single creator would you most like to see work on a Booster Gold story as a combination writer/artist? (45 votes)

Which single creator would you most like to see work on a Booster Gold story as a combination writer/artist?

DC has indicated that the "New 52" is over after Convergence. But if only one Booster Gold will survive, which will it be?

The Perfect Team-Up Is Just One Man

I suppose it figures that the Booster Gold with the fewest votes is also the Booster Gold who has appeared in the fewest number of panels (exactly one, which is also the number of votes he got).

Last week's poll question: Which alternate-continuity version of himself should Booster Gold meet during Convergence? (44 votes)

Which alternate-continuity version of himself should Booster Gold meet during <em>Convergence</em>?

Now that Convergence is upon us, let's talk about the elseworlds where a single creator — combination of writer and artist — other than Dan Jurgens was responsible for telling the stories of most of Booster Gold's adventures. Who would you want to read?
