Scheduled for release today is a $40 hardcover collection of work by Ivan Reis titled Graphic Ink: The DC Comics Art of Ivan Reis, including "the complete Blackest Night." Since Booster Gold made token appearances in the first and last issues of that mini-series, we can expect to see him in this.
It looks like the only Booster we've been seeing recently in the DCU is in reprints. Is that better than nothing? I'm not sure.

So Booster Gold doesn't exist anymore. It could be worse.
Booster is technically qualified to be a Black Lantern. He was pronounced legally dead in Justice League International #65 following his encounter with Devastator. Fortunately for Booster the Overmaster kept everyone in the world alive as part of his plan to destroy the world. (Don't ask how that was supposed to work.) By the time the Overmaster was defeated, Booster was wearing the life-supporting armor designed by his friend and future Black Lantern, Blue Beetle. Thus Booster was returned to life after death. Technically.
The above Black Lantern Booster Gold was drawn by Andre Charipar as part of his quest to create 100 sketches in 101 days prior to this October's New York Comic Con. You can see other sketches on his site, Misfit Corner Press.

It's the zombie series that just wouldn't die! Blackest Night Director's Cut is released today. Advertised to contain the scenes that didn't make the final cut, this 80-page giant will presumably include the missing sections that
make the series readable explain why we didn't see Blue Beetle II resurrected alongside Monarch I. Sorry, I don't mean to be snarky, but, gee whiz, I feel like I wasted a lot of money on this never ending series for so little reward.

The final issue of Blackest Night is released today. I know I'm in the minority on this, but it seems like the publication of the final issue of this mini-series, a months-long excuse for DC to wade through its recent graveyard of poor editorial decisions and join the bandwagon of the pop-culture zeitgeist for zombies, is cause for celebration. Let's get Brightest Day in here to cleans our palates after all that death.

Today's graph compresses the timeline of yesterday's graph to compare apples to apples: issue by issue of Comicchron.com sales numbers for recently canceled DC titles. The trend becomes pretty obvious here as ballooning early enthusiasm quickly deflates to a sloping plateau before finally petering out altogether. Note the recurring late series crossover spikes as Blue Beetle #20 is a Sinestro Corps crossover and both Manhunter #13 and 26 got boosts from Infinite Crisis-related stories. I wonder how big those spikes would have been if little plastic rings had been involved?
DC's sales cancellation threshold, while dependent on editorial discretion, is approximately 15,000 units. That's the white line in the graph above. Unless "Blackest Night" or the arrival of Keith Giffen can earn Booster Gold some new regular readers, it looks like the series will be targeted for termination by issue 50. I find that unacceptable. So spread the word, Boosterphiles, and lets see if we can't get some more air under Booster's sails.
