What to Do about Previews

This past weekend, I discovered that Booster Gold appeared on the cover of the June 2007 issue of Previews.

Previews June 2007

In case you're unaware, Previews is Diamond Comics Distributors in-house catalog of upcoming comic releases. Diamond distributes the magazine to comic specialty shops so that shop owners can place orders. Many shops make the catalog available to their customers, but it's really an industry tool.

Should this be in the Boosterrific database as a cover appearance? It's really just an ad for Booster Gold Volume 2 #1, and I cover that on the Advertisements page. I must have been aware of this when it was released, and I'm sure I didn't consider it a "cover appearance" then. I'm not sure my opinion has changed.

What do you think? Advertisement or cover appearance?

I Don't Like the Sound of Them Apples, Will

If it was good enough for Joe Namath, it ought to be good enough for Booster Gold.

Last week's poll question: What kind of endorsement opportunity would Booster Gold be most likely to decline? (39 votes)

What kind of endorsement opportunity would Booster Gold be most likely to decline?

Today's poll question was requested last week by Lee. I'm still pretending I have no idea what inspired it.

Adult Diapers and Erectile Dysfunction

What, no love for international superheroes? Was it that the New 52 Justice League International was so bad or that it just wasn't the Justice League: Generation Lost follow-up that we were promised?

Last week's poll question: When Booster Gold does get another series, what would you like to see him doing? (61 votes)

When Booster Gold does get another series, what would you like to see him doing?

Now that football season is returning, I see advertisements from former athletes promoting all sorts of unmanly products they would have avoided like the plague in their prime. Could Booster Gold one day be relegated to selling flimflam and quackery?

New Old Releases: Chase

Today DC is releasing a comprehensive collection of Chase. This 329-page softcover includes the character's first appearance in Batman #550, the far-too-brief 10-issue series itself, and short stories from 8 different Secret Files comics originally published between the late 1990s and early 2000s.

If you have never read the series, you owe it to yourself to partake of writer Curtis Johnson's paranoid trip behind-the-scenes of the DC Universe and artist J.H. Williams III's delicately intricate panel designs.

And if that's not reason enough, be aware that Booster Gold appears or is referenced in at least four -- Chase #4, Chase #6, Chase #1,000,000, and DC Universe Secret Files 2000 (referenced during dialogue between Chase and Blue Beetle) -- of the issues appearing in this collection. This collection contains almost all of Booster's brief fling with Firehawk!

If there is any weakness to this collection, it's that there is no Skeets. Poor li'l guy. The 90s were not a good time to be a football-shaped sidekick.

UPDATE 12/29/2011: I've just been notified that Booster Gold appears (twice thrice!) in Teen Titans #4. Booster is seen in partial advertisements for toothpaste and the Daily Planet in Times Square. It may be a new DCU, but Booster's the same Shining Salesman.
