New Release: Booster Gold the Complete 2007 Series

Believe it or not, the first issue of Booster Gold Volume 2 was published over 16 years ago. Sixteen! If it was a person, it could legally drive a car by now.

(Wait a second. was around then. We used to discuss new issues in the no-defunct Boosterrific Forum. Have I really been doing this that long? Golly, how does Booster keep looking so young? I'm aging like a month-old banana!)

Anyway. Booster is long overdue for a new reprint collection, and DC has answered the call. Today, at your Local Comic Shop, you can find this:

If you were buying Booster Gold comics in 2007, you probably already have everything in Booster Gold The Complete 2007 Series Book One, which collects issues #0 through #14 and #1,000,000 (in order of publication). But have you re-read those books lately? Wouldn't it be nice to have them all in one convenient package? (At $29.99, it's much cheaper than the cost of all 16 issues as floppies.)

And if you haven't read Booster Gold Volume 2, what are you doing reading Go! Read!

Buy this trade paperback and make Skeets happy.

Skeets: The Real MVP

For today's post, I asked Microsoft Copilot with GPT-4 for an essay about Skeets. The following is what it wrote.

In the grand theater of superheroes, where capes flutter and muscles bulge, there's a duo that flips the script - Booster Gold and his robotic sidekick, Skeets. But let's be honest, who's the real hero here?

Booster Gold may have the biceps, but Skeets has the brains. He's like a walking, talking encyclopedia from the future. While Booster is busy flexing his muscles, Skeets is flexing his circuits, predicting future events with the accuracy of a weather forecast. And we all know how often those are right!

Booster Gold may be the one with the shiny suit, but when things go south, who's the one saving the day? That's right, our metallic friend Skeets. When Booster gets knocked out, Skeets is there to pick up the slack. He's like the reliable friend who always remembers to bring the snacks to a movie night.

While Booster Gold is busy signing autographs and basking in the limelight, Skeets is the one doing the real work. He's the one navigating through time, providing strategic advice, and occasionally taking over Booster's motor functions. Talk about multitasking!

So, who's the real superhero here? The guy with the flashy suit and charming smile, or the small, hovering robot with the knowledge of the future and the patience of a saint? I think we all know the answer. So here's to Skeets, the unsung hero of the duo, proving that sometimes, the sidekick is the real MVP.

New Release: Superman 13

Imagine my surprise when I opened this week's Superman #13 and saw on the very first page this panel of a Booster Gold t-shirt that is not a Booster Gold t-shirt:

What the heck is that, indeed!

If you're a regular Boosterrific visitor, I'm sure you'll recognize the guy in that panel above is clearly wearing a Graphitti Designs Booster Gold Logo t-shirt (released in 2010), just as the guy in the following panel (not pictured) is wearing a Graphitti Designs Blue Beetle Logo t-shirt (released in 2011).

Why is the Booster Gold shirt colored as though it's a Wonder Woman's tiara t-shirt? I can only guess that colorist Alejandro Sanchez doesn't have a closet full of decade-old Graphitti Designs t-shirts. (I don't blame the colorist. I blame the editors. That's their job, isn't it, to take the blame for the creatives? Darn you, editors!)

Fortunately for Booster boosters, our hero appears more clearly on page three... in a photograph hanging on the wall of Warrior's Bar — next to Batman! (Batman looks very happy about that.)

It's just a small Booster Gold appearance, but consider buying this issue to make Skeets happy.
