I had no idea what to post today. Booster isn't in any new comics, isn't expected to be in any upcoming comics, isn't in the news. He'd be furious.
But not all is lost. There's still plenty of great Booster Gold content out there if you know where to look. For example, these delights are on DeviantArt.com:
Booster may be missing in action, but he still has some pretty great (and talented) fans out there!

Today I'm going to tell you to go read someone else's website instead of this one, specifically the blog of Todd Klein.
Todd Klein is perhaps best known as the letterer of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, but knowledgeable Booster boosters will recognize him as the designer of the original 1980s "Booster Gold" logo. You know, the one I shamelessly ripped off for the logo of this here website. This one:
In a recent post, Klein reviewed the covers of Booster Gold volume 1 that have contributions by the legendary letterer Gaspar Saladino. Gaspar was not credited for his contributions at the time, and I have updated the Boosterrific database with Klein's expert information.
You can read Klein's post at at kleinletters.com.

You all know Cort, who has graciously shared his Booster Gold commissions with us. Well, Cort doesn't just get Booster Gold sketches from professionals. He also gets them from his friends. Check 'em out:

Thanks for sharing, Cort. You've got some pretty talented friends. (Dare I say they all look Boosterrific? I dare!)

Free copies of DC Nation #3 arrived in your Local Comic Shop (and on Comixology) last week. There were several pages promoting Heroes in Crisis, but very little previously undisclosed information was delivered. However, we did get this house ad for DC Nation #4:
Hmm. What can we glean from this illustration?
At last month's Comic-Con, Dan DiDio and Tom King teased that one of the two much discussed "deaths" of Heroes in Crisis will be a Flash, who is conspicuously absent from this ad. Is the other doomed hero one of these characters? I still hope it's not Booster!
I'd be remiss in my duties as unofficial chronicler of Booster's official chronicles if I didn't make note that the art for this piece — a future Heroes in Crisis cover? — was drawn by Brad Walker and inked by Andrew Hennessy. So far as I'm aware, this is the first time either has illustrated Booster Gold. Comparatively, colorist Jason Wright is an old hand, having colored Booster appearances twice before!
Perhaps DC will be willing to spill some more details in the next issue. They'll have time. DC Nation #4 is scheduled for a September 5 release, whereas Heroes In Crisis #1 won't be available until September 26.

Whatever you think of writer Tom King's interpretation of Booster Gold in recent issues of Batman, I think we can all agree that we like the way Tony Daniel draws our hero. His take on bearded Booster Gold is already the talk of the Internet. (You know, the part that talks about super hero hairstyles.)
What do you think of Booster's beard? Would you like to see it stick around for future adventures? Or do you want your clean-shaven baby-faced Booster back?
This week's poll question: Should Booster Gold keep his beard from BATMAN 46? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.
