One of the good thing about having no comic books is that I have more time to watch cartoons. And, as Booster booster Ithildyn has recently brought to my attention, Booster Gold has been making cameo appearances in recent episodes of the online DC Super Hero Girls shorts.
He's on the side of the bus at the 34 second mark in #TheCommute.
And he's on the side of another bus (ok, maybe the same bus) at the 1.17 mark in #ShellShock!
"Give Yourself A Boost" with Booster Cereal? That's a product we've not seen before. Just how many cereals are you going to endorse, buddy? You're giving Cap'n Crunch a run for his money.

Did you miss out on Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 two weeks ago? You could buy a copy on eBay for $40, or, if you're lucky, you can find a rushed second printing today at your LCS for $3.99.
Sigh. (Seriously, I've been collecting comics for four decades, and I still marvel at how the speculator market works.)
While we're on the topic of speculating, I guess now's as good a time as any to mention that pop culture site wegotthiscovered.com reports... well, I'll let them say it.
Warner Brothers is looking to bring [Ryan] Reynolds back to DC but not as the Green Lantern. Instead, they want him to play Booster Gold.
Ok, sure. I'd buy a ticket to see Reynolds bring Zack Stentz's 2017 still-unproduced Booster Gold: The Movie script to life. But then, I'd buy a ticket to see Rob Schneider play Booster Gold. I'm not a hard sell in the Booster Gold department.
And now that I'm on the topics of actors, I should probably take the opportunity to mention what card -carrying Booster Brigade member Shawn Baston spotted in a youtube video tour of comedian Pete Davidson's apartment given to Netflix. Feast your eyes on this:
No, not the picture of Davidson's grandfather with Judd Apatow. Over there in the corner.
Yep, that's a copy of 1985's first printing of Booster Gold volume 1 #1. You've got good taste, Pete. That issue sells for upwards of $30 on eBay!
UPDATE 2020-03-18: wegotthiscovered.com now reports that Reynolds has turned down the role. That means I've mentioned them twice in this post, which shows you how much mileage there is in speculating about such things.
UPDATE 2020-03-19: wegotthiscovered.com updates their own reporting to say that since Ryan Reynolds passed, WB now wants Chris Pratt. So, they're determined to poach all the Marvel actors then. I guess next week they'll be after Tom Holland.

Booster Gold gets his hands on a karaoke microphone in Harley Quinn #70 to sing
When I was lost, you took my hand
When life was gray, you made it grand
When I was damned, you knew the deal
When my heard was sand, you made it steel
I'll call you babe, and you call me boo
I'll love you strong, and you love me true!
Until the end of the world, I love you!
Don't be surprised if you don't recognize the song. It's not real. It was created by issue writer Sam Humphries specifically for the occasion ("to pass legal"). But he didn't create it without inspiration.
According Humphries himself (@samhumphries on Twitter.com), the song was inspired by "For Crying Out Loud," written by Jim Steinman and performed by Meat Loaf on his 1977 epic operatic album, Bat Out of Hell.
I've always thought of Booster as more of a U2 fan, but who am I to tell a Justice Leaguer what to sing.

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.

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:
Thanks to everyone who reminded me to post that.
