New Release: Speed Force 3

Let me just turn today's post over to Jake, who emails:

I don't keep up with this series (nor was I, in truth, completely aware of its existence), but I am now. Speed Force #3 has Booster Gold back in business, as pictured. I want that cup!

You say you haven't been reading this series, Jake, so you may not be aware that the price of "that cup" is probably your autonomy, as the evil backers of the Symphonee music app are planning to take over the minds of the gullible youths who listen to their music.

(Incidentally, this is exactly the plot of the 2001 Josie and the Pussycats movie, which I can whole-heartedly recommend.)

Is Booster Gold unaware of Symphonee's evil plans? Has our hero been mind-controlled like some of the Teen Titans, or is he simply being an opportunistic shill hoping to ride the coattails of whatever the popular app of the moment is (not unlike how celebrity influencers promoted NFTs in 2021)?

Given that Booster's cup is the McGuffin that motivates Roundhouse to attend Symphonee's upcoming music festival, will we be seeing more Booster in future issues of this mini-series? Let's hope so.

In the meantime, buy Speed Force #3 and make Skeets happy.

Thanks for the pic, Jake.
