A Speck of Gold

On Wednesday, I showed you this panel created by Steve Lieber for the June 2021 issue of Teen Titans Academy #4:

Seeing that panel, Cort Carpenter realized that the Booster Gold headshot looked incredibly similar to one he had commissioned from Lieber last year (previously shared with Boosterrific.com on October 19, 2020):

They do look alike, don't they? My first impression was that Cort's commission was a study used for the new work, but closer inspection makes it clear that Lieber used his earlier black and white commission as the foundation for the new piece of digital art. Just to make it clearer, here's a gif of the two pieces overlaid:

Isn't that cool? You can even see where Lieber erased his signature when adding color. Cort's commission is now a piece of original comic art. How often does that happen?

Good Boy

I love dogs. And Skeets. And therefore, I love this piece of commissioned fan art by Arnel Baluyot (@theninjabot):

In this case, I'm even willing to forgive the lack of a high collar.

Pre-Crisis Brainiac Faces the Post-Crisis DCU

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:

My most time consuming #commission to date.  Not quite to @arthuradamsart crazy multi-character commission standards but not bad. I just wish it had been for an actual comic! #JusticeLeague #DCComics #WonderWoman #Superman, @aaronlopresti May 26, 2021

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.

High Wire Buddy Act

Illustrator Dean Beattie revealed a recent commission on Twitter last week. See if you recognize these guys:

Blue and Gold commission by Dean Beattie @deanbeattie Twitter.com

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.
