Maybe He Was Busy Protecting Philo Farnsworth

A primary motivation for my maintenance of this blog promoting DC Comics' Booster Gold is to build a catalog of Booster references outside the world of comic books. So, of course, when I saw yesterday's CBR.com article, "Going For Gold: Booster Gold’s Long History Of TV Appearances," I knew I'd have to mention it here.

The article briefly covers the television shows that have included significant Booster Gold appearances, from Justice League Unlimited (2004) to Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2009) to Teen Titans Go!, which gave Booster his first speaking part just this year. It also mentions Booster's two live-action appearances, in the final season Smallville episode "Booster" (2011) and the final season Legends of Tomorrow episode "Knocked Down, Knocked Up" (2022), which had a very, very brief follow-up in The Flash episode "Impulsive Excessive Disorder."

To its credit, the article contains no inaccuracies. However, I expected more, especially considering that there really aren't that many televised Booster Gold appearances. Boosterrific.com maintains a whole page tracking them. I mean, while the article spends a whole paragraph on an obscure cameo appearance in from the 2006 Legion of Super-Heroes, it doesn't mention other cameos in Cartoon Networks' MAD or DC Super Hero Girls. Oh, well, we can't have everything.

If we wanted everything, we'd have to mention things like Booster's 52 cover cameo in MTV's long-forgotten The Hard Times of RJ Berger or Booster's participation the 2012 Robot Chicken DC Comics Special. By the way, Booster almost had a speaking part in that one, a sketch in which he badly defends *not* going back in time and killing Hitler. The sketch was cut for being "too talky," but you can currently see it on Youtube (starting at 5:34).

Anyway, nitpicks aside, I offer congratulations to article writer Alex Russell for spreading the gospel of Booster Gold to those who may not be inclined to read comic books. Russell is a real Booster booster whose CBR bio says he's "still waiting on a Booster Gold movie." You and me both, buddy.

50 Shades of Crises

The push has started for DC's 2022 summer event, Dark Crisis, with promotional articles appearing in all the usual places. (Writer Joshua Williamson is even talking his creation up on Youtube).

The good news about all this is that we can definitely say that Booster Gold will be participating, at least in issue one, as we can see from the cover:

and interior pages:

I assume we'll find out more when Dark Crisis #1 arrives in your Local Comic Shop this May.

My Name Is Booster Gold and I'm Here to Say...

Sometimes I need a reminder that the world is full of creative people doing good things, and that's what Ithildyn gave us this weekend. Specifically, we got a link to this video:

Apparently, that's a DC Comics skin mod featuring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle created by CosmicBeetle for a rhythm game called "Friday Night Funkin'" by ninjamuffin99.

I've never been any good at rhythm games (I have two left thumbs), so I'm content to watch the video. If you're the sort who's into playing such things, there are resource links in the video description.

Thanks, Ithildyn.

UPDATE 2021-04-15: Mod creator CosmicBeetle dropped by the comments with a link to the official trailer (also viewable on YouTube), so I've removed the gameplay video I'd originally embedded above. Sorry about that, CB. You've done good work.

Entertainment for the Eyes and the Ears

Propjosh dropped me a line to let me know he is preparing to unleash the final season of his long-running Blue and Gold fan series. Here's what he had to say about what you'll see when you visit his YouTube channel:

Without giving away too much, this season will be very closely related to the Booster Gold comics. Five years passed since Ted Kord was killed and Booster is trying to cope while working alongside Rip Hunter. There will definitely be some episodes straight from the comics. There will also be an episode where they will be completely animated with possibly a guest star.

Here's a link to my trailer for the season.

I will have new episodes every Saturday starting Sept 5th until the end of the year.

September 5? That's tomorrow! Finally something to watch other than the constant stream of political advertisements on my television. Thanks, Josh!

And if you're looking for something else to entertain you this long Labor Day weekend, know that Blue and Gold -- A Superman and Booster Gold Podcast released a new episode earlier this week. You can find it via blueandgoldpodcast.blogspot.com.

Youtube videos and podcasts? Sometimes the Internet is pretty great.
