Surprise, surprise. The most visited post in 2016 was one of Boosterrific.com's few polls on the year. This one originally ran the week of June 10, when I asked you "How satisfied are you with Rebirth so far?"
I had cut back on polls in 2016 because I felt they weren't generating much interest. Well, this one sure did. There have been polls with more voters, but few have gathered so many views.
Since we're on the subject, I might as well follow up. When last I asked, Rebirth was only 3 weeks old. Has your opinion changed in the past seven months? We'll take a look at your response next year!
This week's poll question: More than six months in, how satisfied are you with Rebirth overall? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.

Coming in second on our year-end hit parade was the Boosterrific.com post on May 13 confirming that the long rumored Booster Gold movie finally had a writer.
Said Greg Berlanti (to the Hollywood Reporter):
I'm attached to a few films [at Warner Bros.] now, and one, Booster Gold, is a DC property. Zack Stentz, who wrote an episode of Flash last year, just got the job, so he's writing the script now. I'd probably direct that, or I would want to.
We haven't heard much since, but that's how the movie business works. We'll keep watching and waiting.
The countdown wraps up on Friday with the most visited post of the year.

Each December I look back at the year that was and find the Boosterrific.com posts that garnered the most attention.
Number three on this year's countdown of most popular posts was this fine piece of (unlicensed) apparel I showed you in September:
As you can see, it's a good looking design. But the best part is hiding inside.
Say hello to my little friend:
It's Skeets! Without a doubt, this hoodie is the very definition of Boosterrific!
We'll continue the countdown on Wednesday.

The Blot has finally decompressed from his trip to San Diego Comic Con 2016 and is sharing with us the latest additions to his Booster Gold sketchbook:
From left to right, that's the work of Cully Hamner, Art Baltazar, and Josh Howard. You can see every piece in The Blot Says' Booster Gold Sketchbook on Flickr.com.
I can't wait to see what you get next, Blot! Thanks for sharing.

Earlier this week, J.M. DeMatteis posted this picture of his Justice League International co-collaborator, Keith Giffen, and two other guys on Twitter.com:
I always liked seeing artists draw themselves into their comic book adventures. But I like it even more to see the heroes come alive to stand beside their creators.
On a related note, DeMatteis participated in a roast of Giffen at Terrificon last weekend, and he posted a video on his website, Creation Point (by way of The Angry Geeks Show). There's definitely some salty language (okay, "some" might be an understatement: think Beverly Hills Cop), but it's still an entertaining series of anecdotes — including a brief argument about who came up with "Bwah-Ha-Ha" — presenting an oral history of Giffen's long association with DC Comics. I enjoyed it.
Here's to many more years for both Giffen and Dematteis (both separately and together)!
There have been 2828 blog entries since January 2010.
