Cort Carpenter has dedicated himself to compiling the World's Best Booster Gold Sketchbook. And it just keeps getting better!
Take a gander at these seven newest additions:

By my count, that's 106 different commissions Cort has now shared with us over the years. I'm sure I speak for Booster boosters everywhere when I say we sure like looking at them.

Look what showed up my mailbox!
Believe it or not, that's my first Dan Jurgens sketch. I wasn't expecting it — I was only expecting Dan to sign a copy of Russ Burlingame's The Gold Exchange: The Deluxe Edition, not sketch in it — and I was not emotionally prepared for how much I was going to love it.
I love the high collar. I love the shades of gray washes (the exact colors of Booster's personal ethics). I especially love how the sketchiness of it makes Booster look older, as though Booster has been growing old along with me.
So now I've got everything I want in life. It's all downhill from here.
Big thanks to Jurgens (and Russ Burlingame) for making all my previously unrecognized dreams come true.

Cort Carpenter sent me an email full of his best holiday wishes, and even better, he attached his latest addition to his Booster Gold Sketchbook:
Even if it wasn't signed, that piece is pretty obviously by John McCrea, co-creator of DC's Hitman.
Cort usually requests his commissions include Booster Gold's fabulous high collar, but this time McCrea even included the original hollow star and the bulbs on the end of Skeets' fins. Boosterrific!

Posts have been light this week in large part because work has kept me so busy. That hasn't changed.
So today, as we head into the weekend, all I can offer is a couple of Booster sightings passed along to me this week by longtime Booster booster Rob Snow:
Booster sighting. New book called DC Periodic table. Booster, Ted and Rip all have profiles. No Skeets.
Officially, the book is called The Periodic Table of DC, and it comes to us by way of DK Publishing.
While DK thrives primarily on being the print equivalent of a CBR listicle, I cannot fault their presentations, which are always top notch. So although I have not yet seen this book myself, I suggest you hustle to pick one up at your local book store before all their copies argon. (Har, har.)
Later in the week, Rob wrote in again.
Nuther Booster sighting. Scott Kolins facebook page has killer Booster sketch.
Facebook and I no longer have a functional relationship, so I cannot see Kolins' post myself. Thankfully, Rob very kindly passed along a screenshot, which looks like this.
If you get along with Facebook better than I do, maybe you can track down a better look.
Thanks a bunch, Rob.
UPDATE: D'oh! As Cort Carpenter points out in the comments, that Scott Kolins sketch was one of his commissions. In fact, I even posted it here on Boosterrific.com back in May 2020! You can see it at this link.
If I wasn't so wrapped up in work, I might have noticed that, but obviously I didn't. Oops. I usually make some effort search my own back catalog in order to bring you only the freshest Booster Gold news. There's probably some sort of lesson in here about life in general... but I'm too busy to figure out what that might be. In this case, at least the sketch is totally worth seeing a second time, as are most of Cort's commissions, which you can see at this link.
Thanks again to Cort for sharing his sketchbook with us, and, heck, for commissioning so many cool Booster Gold sketches that we can't even keep track of all of them!

Luckily for Booster boosters everywhere, Cort Carpenter hasn't let a rough patch of "health issues" keep him from adding new pages to his collection of Booster Gold sketch commissions.
I usually like to put these in alphabetical order, but this time I saved Ramona Fradon for last... because she's Ramona Fradon! A ninety-six-year-old DC legend and still drawing. Wow!
I hope all of your troubles are behind you, Cort. As always, thanks for sharing.
