Skeets Is Also a Great Cereal Mascot

The final issue of Human Target is out this week, and it's not impossible that UPDATE: Rob Snow assures us that Booster Gold puts in an appearance.

Booster might also pop up this week near Ted Kord in Blue Beetle: Graduation Day — UPDATE: he's actually in the House Ad for Lazarus Planet Omega — or referenced by Rip Hunter and his original team of Time Masters in Stargirl: The Lost Children — UPDATE: he's not, but another rarely seen time-displaced Leaguer is.

One place I wouldn't normally think to look for Booster is in the pages of this week's Batman: Gotham Knights: Gilded City, the comic tie-in to the Gotham Knights video game. Booster isn't often in Gotham City, but he is in the game. Or at least Skeets is.

Obviously, Flakies was the first cereal that Booster Gold ever endorsed way back in 1985 (in Booster Gold #2), and its great to see that they're still in business.

Gotham Knights takes place in an alternate universe where Batman is dead, so while it shouldn't come as a surprise that their cereal is star-shaped, I do have to wonder why they're called "Flakies" if the cereal itself isn't made of flakes? What kind of universe is this?

Thanks to friend James for spotting these boxes in game on top of Barbara Gordon's refrigerator.

Booster Gold Is a Really Great Cereal Mascot

2023 is off to a pretty Boosterrific start. Another day, another lost Booster Gold appearance spotted by Booster booster Brandon.

Hi, I think this might be a new find of yet another Booster themed breakfast cereal from Hawk and Dove #28 from Oct 1991, page 7. Hawk has been hiding on the run, and been apparently been only eating sugary boxes of Booster Gold cereal.

Could this be true? Especially in light of what I posted on Monday, could there be another Booster Gold cereal product placement I didn't know about?

Turns out, yes. And it's a really cool one. Check it out.

I love, love, love that box, especially the back.

This, Flakies, Sugar Packed Boosteroes, Booster Bits, Booster Puffs, Golden Flakes.... I'm starting to think that Booster came back in time to fight dentists.

Thanks, Brandon.

Booster Gold Is More Than a Cereal Mascot

Over the weekend, I was being teased by some friends about whether or not I'd be able to keep a particular New Year's Resolution I made. In response, I decided that instead of resolutions, I was going to make objectives (which sounds more aspirational than intimidating resolutions).

One of my New Year's Objectives for 2023 is to introduce at least one new person to the awesomeness of Booster Gold. I don't know where I'll find someone in my life who isn't already familiar with DC's greatest superhero, but I'll definitely be looking. I invite all Booster boosters to join me.

2023 may present us with some pretty good opportunities. In addition to whatever else it is that James Gunn has brewing at Warner Bros, there's still a Jaime Reyes-centric Blue Beetle movie coming this August. That'll give us an opportunity to enlighten new fans about the established superhero who originally introduced Jaime to his own super-heroic alter ego in 2006's Infinite Crisis #5!

If Booster Gold is good enough for Batman, he's good enough for you!

Help our hero get the recognition he deserves in 2023, Booster boosters. The future may depend on it!

Webtoons Are Comics Too

Hungry? Eat up!

Flakies, Booster Bits, Sugar Packed Boosteros, Booster Puffs, Booster Cereal, and now Golden Flakes?! Pretty soon Booster is going to need to invest in a dairy just to provide milk to everyone eating one of his breakfast cereals.

That panel (first brought to our attention by Booster booster Dallas) comes from the online comic Red Hood: Outlaws episode 19, "A Handy Dandy Mirror."

Red Hood: Outlaws is written by Patrick R. Young and drawn by Nico Bascunan. But the image on that cereal box is by Dan Jurgens, Joe Rubinstein, and Tom McCraw as originally published in Who's Who in the DC Universe #2 (1990).

I still haven't committed to adding digital-only comics to the Boosterrific database — because I'm a grumpy old man, and pixels aren't real! — but I have added Booster Gold Golden Flakes to the Boosterrific list of Booster's businesses and endorsements.

Thanks to everyone who pointed out this appearance. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm suddenly in the mood for a bowl of corn flakes.

For True Cereal Afficionados

Wherever Booster finally shows up, his fans will be watching.

Last week's poll question: How has Rip Hunter's role in Legends of Tomorrow affected your opinion about the chances of Booster Gold getting his own TV show? (41 votes)

How has Rip Hunter's role in <em>Legends of Tomorrow</em> affected your opinion about the chances of Booster Gold getting his own TV show?

In yesterday's Bat-Mite #3, we learned that Booster Gold is endorsing the fourth cereal of his career. Take that, Superman!
