Recently in the Boosterrific Forum, Morgenstern noted, "The news about this script seems to have caused more media buzz for Booster than anything he did ever in the comics." That's quite true.

For years, comic books have been an increasingly small market. With DC's recent hype machine running full blast, they sold nearly 4.5 million comics for the entire line for the entire month. By comparison, SyFy recently renewed their most recent show about super heroes, Alphas. The network claimed that this one show alone averages 3.3 million viewers weekly.

For a more direct, apples-to-apples comparison, consider that if a television series about Booster Gold has as many viewers as the least-watched episode of Caprica, a SyFy series cancelled earlier this year because of low ratings, that series would represent a nearly 980% increase in views over the best selling issue of Booster Gold, Volume 2. That's a significant increase in audience! Here's looking at you, SyFy!
