Old Release: Wildstorm 30th Anniversary Special

I figured if we were going to see Booster Gold anywhere this week, it would be in Dark Crisis: Big Bang. After all, the whole issue is a trip through the new DC Multiverse drawn by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund.

But no. No Booster anywhere.

To be fair, that makes sense. The issue revisits the concepts of the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Booster Gold wasn't in the DC Universe then. (Flash Fact: Booster Gold was the first new character to appear on the sole Earth to survive into the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Universe!)

However, just when I was prepared to write about something else today, Booster booster Logan writes in to tell me that about a Booster Gold appearance I missed last week!

Set your eyes on this panel from Wildstorm 30th Anniversary Special #1:

You might be surprised to learn that this is the first time Booster Gold has appeared on panel with Apollo and Midnighter in mainstream continuity. Granted, Apollo and Midnighter didn't leave the Wildstorm Universe and join the mainstream DCU until the New 52, but that's still been over a decade. About time, guys!

So if you do go to your Local Comic Shop this week, be sure to check the shelves for last week's comics. Thanks, Logan!
