I don't think I'd warned you this was coming, but today you can get your hands on Superman: The Man of Steel Volume 3, a reprint collection of twelve Superman comics from the 1980s. It just so happens that Booster appears in three of those:
Booster Gold sure was all over the place back in late 1987, early 1988. Ah, the good old days.
That last panel is just a cameo, but there's actually quite a good bit of Booster in this collection. Buy this reprint and make Skeets happy.

I've enjoyed the art of Aaron Lopresti ever since he first came to my attention pencilling Justice League: Generation Lost #1 in 2010. In just over a decade, Lopresti has drawn so many Booster Gold adventures that he now ranks fourth on the list of Booster Gold pencillers by output volume.
So you can imagine my pleasure seeing this recent commission that Lopresti shared on Twitter:
Aaron didn't share the terms of the commission, but I can tell you that sure looks like the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths Brainiac facing the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths heroes of the DCU, circa 1988. Perhaps not coincidentally, 1988 is the year that the post-Crisis Brainiac made his first appearance (in Adventures of Superman #438). But what's really important here is that Booster has a high collar.
Side note: perhaps its because they both debuted in the mid 80s and wear stars on their chests, I always figured Booster and the Will Payton Starman should have spent more time adventuring together. Oh, well. I'd say that ship has sailed, but with time travelers, you never really know.
Keep up the great work, Aaron.

DC's August solicitations are out this week, and we've gotten our first glimpse at Blue and Gold issue 2:
BLUE AND GOLD #2
story by DAN JURGENS
art & cover by RYAN SOOK
ON SALE August 17 · $3.99 US
Who needs the Justice League anyway? Our heroes certainly don't! After a painful rejection from the DC Universe's team of a-list heroes, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle strike out on their own. Thanks to the Kord Industries fortune, anything is possible for this dynamic duo…right? Little do they know, an alien assassin seeking revenge places Blue and Gold in her crosshairs, and The Omnizon never misses!
The only bad news is that it looks like this is probably the only place we'll be seeing Booster Gold in August. (I think he'll be showing up — very briefly — in a Birds of Prey collection solicited for late September, but that's four months away. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.)
You can see all the solicitations yourself at GamesRadar.com/Newsarama.

Illustrator Dean Beattie revealed a recent commission on Twitter last week. See if you recognize these guys:
Judging by that high collar, you can probably guess that this was commissioned by Cort. Kudos to both the artist and patron.
By the way, seeing Skeets here reminds me that Blue Beetle and Skeets have never spent much time together. It's kind of like Booster has two best friends that he keeps apart from each other. I assume he doesn't want them gossiping about him behind his back. It's okay; Skeets can be your friend, too, Ted.

Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... blog is one of the very few site that I visit on a regular basis. It's always worth seeing what inter-company team-ups Ross comes up with, especially when they're this radical:
I think it's great to see these signature teams of the 1980s finally come together, even if only in Ross's imagination.
There have been 2407 blog entries since January 2010.
