No Booster Gold comics this week, but Cort has come to our rescue with new entries in his Booster Gold sketchbook!
Let's take a peek inside (with Cort's commentary):
Got this beauty from Brett Booth. The staggering detail in the background is awesome. Beetle being hidden in there made me laugh.
A Bart Sears Booster commish I got for supporting the Hero Initiative, also got to chat with Sears, it was pretty rad.
A wicked and stylish, smug, and funny Booster from Yale Stewart of JL8 fame.

I'm going to assume that those of you who voted "no preference" did so because you love Booster Gold in anything he wears.
Last week's poll question: Do you prefer Booster Gold's costume with or without the high collar? (69 votes)
For the record, Booster has appeared more often with a collar than without, an impressive feat considering that his first non-metallic collar-less costume appeared in 1997 (though that costume with its asymmetrical star placement was not the one most of you thought of when I asked you to vote).
The gap is still so large that it would take a collarless Booster Gold (New 52 costume or otherwise) about three years of continuous monthly appearances to make up the difference.
I'm not excited that DC seems determined to not publish Booster Gold comics, but at least so long as they do, the high collar will continue to reign supreme.

In Wednesday's comments, Michael said he was not a fan of Booster Gold's classic high collar. That's the great thing about America: we're all entitled to our opinions, even when they're wrong.
But maybe you agree with Michael and think that I'm the nutcase. It's been a long time since I gave you a poll, so let's put this to a vote using the slightly improved Boosterrific poll system!

Maybe I'm stuck in the 80s, but I think nothing looks cooler than Booster Gold's original high collar.
This good looking hero comes to us by way of Chris Kasmar. You can find more of his superhero sketches under the pseudonym cmkasmar on DeviantArt.com.

If you're a die-hard DC Comics fan, you've probably noticed that the costume worn by the Teen Titans ally Red Star bore more than a passing resemblance to Booster Gold's original costume.
Red Star's first appearance was in 1968. Back then, he was named Starfire (though he eventually lost that name to a certain alien princess). He returned to action in the early and mid-80s wearing the same costume: goggles, exposed face, high collar, star on his chest.
Is it possible that this minor Teen Titans acquaintance could have influenced Dan Jurgens when he created Booster Gold's costume a few years later? I put that question to Jurgens himself.
I really don't think so, though I was familiar with it.
More than anything, I always liked the cut-off mask like Kid Flash and Marvel's [Captain] Marvell had. The exposed hair added a dramatic flair. In addition, having goggles instead of a full face mask fit because he wasn't going to have a secret identity anyway.
So there you have it. Not Red Star, but Kid Flash!
Do you have any questions about Booster Gold's origins after 30 years? Speak up, and we'll investigate!
