Well Listen to This!

Two weeks ago, when I posted a link to some Booster Gold-inspired punk rock, Eskana dropped by the comments with a YouTube link to a song called "The Ballad of Booster Gold".

Music From My Bedroom Walls by Jacob Pence

This "little ditty of mediocrity," as it is described, has been online for over a year. It's from the album Music From My Bedroom Walls published by AcousTic Media Productions and credited to Jacob Pence.

How much other Booster Gold-inspired music is out there that I don't know about? It's starting to look like quite a bit.

Thanks, Eskana.

Blue and Gold Make Jim Lee Twitch

DC Comics Co-Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee hasn't drawn Booster Gold often — the cover of Infinite Crisis #5 is the only instance I'm aware of — so we should celebrate it when we see it. Therefore, for any Booster booster who isn't following me on Twitter and hasn't seen this yet, check it out:

@jimlee via Twitter.com 2019-07-26

Lee didn't just tweet the finished product. He twitched himself drawing it! It took over three hours beginning to end, and you can watch every minute in these videos on YouTube:

BOOSTER GOLD! BLUE BEETLE! Part 1 of 2--Art Stream with JIM LEE

Thanks to everyone who reminded me to post that.

Booster Gold Has the Best Everything

Booster booster CDN points our attention to a YouTube video from whatculture.com, where Booster Gold has managed to make his way near the top of another list, this time for comics characters with the best motivations.


Booster Gold starts near the 8:00 minute mark

It seems to me that despite not having his own comic, Booster Gold appears to be pretty well known and much more widely respected these days than in years past. That's probably thanks mostly to his being included prominently in recent Batman and Justice League cartoons in his "Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of" time policeman persona.

To think that Booster, once a laughingstock and perennial B-lister, will be idolized by the upcoming generation of comics readers... that's pretty cool.

Calling All Boostermaniacs (TM)

Do you have your copy of LEGO DC Super Villains video game yet? If not, here's a game play video of our favorite hero from JayShockblast on YouTube:

Pay careful attention inside the game's version of Blaze Comics, and you'll spot a LEGO recreation of Booster Gold Volume 1, #25. That's pretty Boosterrific!

For the record, Booster is voiced in the game by Travis Willingham, and Roger Craig Smith is Skeets.

Rich Editor Loves Gold

DCComics.com released a "DC Tales From the Vault" episode promoting Batman on Tuesday, and it includes Batman Group Editor Jamie Rich reading his own fan letter published in Booster Gold #7 (1986).

Here's the original letter so that you can read along:

To the press agents of Boo$ter Gold, I think BOOSTER GOLD is excellent. It's something wonderfully new. The first issue came out and I became hooked. What can I say? I laughed. I cried. it became a part of me. I anxiously waited for number two to come out. I sat in my chair all week, sweat dripping down my face and spitting shards of nails on the floor. Finally, Friday came. I ditched school and rushed to Pee Wee Comics. I tore my way to the rack, knocking down people on the way (including the bearded guy with about 40 comics). I rushed to the end of the rack and grabbed Booster's book. I chucked the .75 the guy's eye and ran all the way home. (I wonder if my dad's still waiting for me to come back to the car?) I turned the. TV to The Twilight Zone and settled down to read BOOSTER GOLD. I LOVED THE CRAZY THING!!! The only thing wrong was I had to wait another month for #3!!! So we'll skip the boring parts and move up to the present. I have read BOOSTER #3, and once again, you AMAZE me!! The art and story were the best you could have produced. The characters that have been used were wonderful, and now you bring in Thorn, another great character. Uh·oh. I just thought of something. I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER MONTH FOR #4!!! Jamie S. Rich 6625 Oesoto Ave. #14 Canogoa Park, CA 91303

Rich wasn't named Batman Group Editor until April, and Tom King's referenced Booster Gold story, "The Gift," was already deep in production by then. So we won't judge Rich too harshly for that fiasco. (I refuse to believe that any OG Booster booster like Rich would have let King lobotomize our hero if he could have stopped him!)

You get a pass this time, Rich. But know that Booster Gold fans are watching you extra closely now!
