Buy Booster Gold

Who Reads Newspapers Anymore?

Booster Gold would be thrilled to know that he got a mention in yesterday's edition of the Houston Chronicle, the largest newspaper in Texas, and one of the 10 largest in the United States by circulation.

BEYOND THE BIG THREE
Everybody knows Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Here's a handful of more obscure (and definitely odd) DC heroes:
• Booster Gold: A 25th-century opportunist who travels back in time to play the hero and cash in on the glory.

Booster is included in an aside detailing several "obscure" DC heroes, including Metamorpho, Plastic Man, Swamp Thing, and Zatanna. That seems an odd selection given the fact that Swamp Thing has starred in movies and television shows, and Plastic Man has been around since 1941. But I'm sure that I'm not the one who gets to judge what the public considers obscure about DC Comics.

The article, "DC Comics celebrates a superhero milestone" [sic] credited to René A. Guzman of the San Antonio Express-News, is mostly dedicated to DC's 75th anniversary celebration DVD, Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics released earlier this month. Still, it's great to see Booster exposed to a much, much larger audience than the 17,000 people who are currently buying his book nationwide. The entire article can be found on the Chronicle's website, chron.com.
