Buy Booster Gold

Telling Myself It's Just Some Sparkly Paper

San Diego Comic Con officially starts tomorrow, so now is the time for me to remind everyone that I really, really want one of these:

The BOOSTER GOLD SLIVER SCREEN CONVENTION EXCLUSIVE variant, available at SDCC this year. Nifty first issue facsimile edition. 1985 served up with a 2023 twist! -- Dan Jurgens via Twitter.com, June 28, 2023

Well, not one of those 10, exactly. Those are Dan Jurgens', and he deserves them. Heck, if you ask me, he deserves all of them. All 1000.

That's right, according to DCComics.com, that convention exclusive "Silver Screen Edition" of 1985's debut Booster Gold #1 is limited to 1,000 copies sold for $15.00 each. Those numbers seem awfully low to me, especially considering that subtracting Jurgens' 10, there can't be more than 990 available to rabid Booster Gold fans (like me!).

Since it's very, very unlikely — some might say "impossible" — that I'll find my way to San Diego with a convention admission badge, I'll stay here by my computer with an eye on eBay until one of these shows up.

Maybe, if I get lucky, Dan will decide to sell off one of his.

UPDATE 2023-07-20: Yep, as of 4PM EDT Thursday, there are 2 of them already up on eBay, each with an asking price over $100 (including shipping). That sure seems like a lot of money for a comic I already own several of in other formats. On the other hand, can you even buy a stick of gum for $100 anymore? Maybe I'll ask Santa for one for Christmas....
