Pre-Crisis Brainiac Faces the Post-Crisis DCU

I've enjoyed the art of Aaron Lopresti ever since he first came to my attention pencilling Justice League: Generation Lost #1 in 2010. In just over a decade, Lopresti has drawn so many Booster Gold adventures that he now ranks fourth on the list of Booster Gold pencillers by output volume.

So you can imagine my pleasure seeing this recent commission that Lopresti shared on Twitter:

My most time consuming #commission to date.  Not quite to @arthuradamsart crazy multi-character commission standards but not bad. I just wish it had been for an actual comic! #JusticeLeague #DCComics #WonderWoman #Superman, @aaronlopresti May 26, 2021

Aaron didn't share the terms of the commission, but I can tell you that sure looks like the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths Brainiac facing the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths heroes of the DCU, circa 1988. Perhaps not coincidentally, 1988 is the year that the post-Crisis Brainiac made his first appearance (in Adventures of Superman #438). But what's really important here is that Booster has a high collar.

Side note: perhaps its because they both debuted in the mid 80s and wear stars on their chests, I always figured Booster and the Will Payton Starman should have spent more time adventuring together. Oh, well. I'd say that ship has sailed, but with time travelers, you never really know.

Keep up the great work, Aaron.
