 To Know Him Is to Love Him

Friday, February 23, 2018

DC Kids has put together 17 minutes of Booster Gold clips from Justice League Action episodes to create a "Who Is Booster Gold?" sizzle reel.

While it's funny, it doesn't exactly portray our hero in the best light. In fact, you might even call his behavior "bumbling."

Oh, well. I admit it. Booster has some rough edges. But that's what makes him the best!

 His Least Favorite

Monday, February 12, 2018

Jonny Michel, who shared some artwork with Booster boosters back in October, got in touch with more commission news.

I recently got engaged to the wonderful lady who purchased me these Chris Giarrusso commissions.

In celebration, I went nuts. I did something I normally never do. I went out and purchased a semi-expensive commission off of eBay.com from one of my favorite DC artists, Ethan Van Sciver.

On top of the amazing sketch card I received in the mail, Ethan also filmed the entire sketching process and commentary and posted it on his Youtube channel! So, not only do I have this beautiful Booster Gold drawing (with an excellent *classic* popped collar and Ethan’s take on Skeets), but I also have a 45 minute video of how he made it! Seriously, how cool is that?

Unfortunately, upon watching the video, I learned the one devastating blow this sketch is to the Booster Gold community. In this video, we learned that Booster Gold ... is one of Ethan Van Sciver's least favorite DC characters ... and I was the goof that asked for the commission.

Please, hold back your screams of shock and terror. I know. It's crazy.

Ethan actually offers a really good reason why this is though. Basically, he hasn’t gotten the chance to get into Booster Gold by drawing and learning about his story. Luckily, by the end of the video, I feel like he was kinda getting into it, especially when he started drawing the collar.

See? The collar is important!

Congratulations on your new commission, Jonny. (And congrats on your engagement, too! I predict many years of happily married commissions in your future.)

 Dan Jurgens Draws Super, Talks Gold

Monday, October 16, 2017

Earlier this week, DC released a new "Art Academy" video on YouTube. Each of these short films showcases the talents of one of their artists. The latest featured artist is Dan Jurgens, who drew (and inked!) Superman at Comic Con International back in July.

If you don't care to see Jurgens draw Superman — what kind of monster are you? — you can skip ahead to 7:44 to hear him talk about why he created Booster Gold.

Pay attention until the end. There's a trivia question at about 15:05 that I expect everyone reading this to be able to answer. (That's all it takes to get a Dan Jurgens' sketch? I've been working too hard!)

 Batman and Harley Quinn (Take Two)

Monday, August 28, 2017

When I originally posted this clip from Warner Bros Entertainment's Batman and Harley Quinn in April, it disappeared before many of you got a chance to see it. Since the movie is actually being released tomorrow, let's try this again.

The movie was co-written by Jim Krieg and Bruce Timm (and Timm provides the voice for Booster!).

Given that Krieg is also a producer for Justice League Action, I think he deserves some extra credit for keeping Booster in the public eye during our hero's current absence from the DCnU. Thanks Jim.

 Batman, Harley Quinn and Booster Gold, Oh My!

Friday, April 7, 2017

Steven Palchinski calls my attention to this sneak peak of the upcoming DCE animated movie Batman and Harley Quinn. To see what this has to do with Booster Gold, advance the following clip to about the 8:30 mark.

A Bloodwynd reference? That's a deep cut!

Thanks, Steven.
