I've been a grouch all week, but it's not all bad news in the world. I mean, DC Fandome version 2.0 is set for tomorrow, and DC is promising us 24 hours of free comics. That's not nothing.
And if Booster Gold fans want even more comic books, you should know that on Wednesday, Newsarama/GamesRadar broke the news that Booster Gold would be appearing in Generations: Shattered #1 in January.
(I said that like you didn't already know it, but you probably did. So many people got in touch to share that Newsarama article, I must have been the last to know. Thanks for keeping me informed, everybody!)
Judging from the article, Generations: Shattered looks to be a $10 anthology book collecting some of the pieces of DC's abandoned "5G" event. The official solicitation hasn't been revealed — and might not be revealed for a while considering that Newsarama says it's coming in January and DC hasn't even released its December solicitations. But we do know that Dan Jurgens is listed as one of the writers, and we did get this look at the sweet cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.
Pay close attention:
Booster hasn't had that shaded star on his costume since Booster Gold #8 in 1986! Could that be an accident? I think not.
Dare we hope that Generations: Shattered will actually revisit Booster's original post-Crisis on Infinite Earths chronology for the first time since... ever? Remember, back in 1986, Booster was living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Ah, the good old days!
Maybe this wasn't such a bad week after all. #CorporateCrusader #BringBackTrixie

DC's self-contained convention was this past weekend, and while it was a smorgasbord for fans of super hero movies, television, and video games, there really wasn't much news about DC's plans for comic books. And since Booster Gold doesn't exist in any current movies, television, or video games, our hero was nowhere to be found.
The closest we got to Booster was this Easter Egg spotted by the eagle-eyed Ouoya (@Ouoya on Twitter.com) in the Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League video game trailer:
Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League is set in the same continuity as Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham series of games. Blaze Comics appeared in Gotham City in Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) and Batman: Arkham Knight (2015).
It's good to know that Blaze is still doing well enough to have a storefront in Metropolis, but you're going to have to wait a while to see it for yourself. Suicide Squad Versus The Justice League isn't scheduled to be released before August 2022.
So maybe that's not the Booster Gold bonanza Booster boosters might have been hoping for, but it's not nothing. And since FanDome was split into two weeks with most of the comics-related content pushed to September 12, we may still hear more about Booster yet.
Thanks for bringing that screenshot to our attention, Ouoya.

Nothing about 2020 is normal, and that includes the annual Comic-Con International convention being held this weekend. The in-person event was canceled for public health reasons, but it is now being held in "the comfort of your own home" courtesy of the magic of the Internet. (I hope you have a big couch.)
In honor of the convention's Masquerade cosplay contest, being held virtually tonight on comicconathome.tumblr.com, I present Kevin Bo...oster Gold, aka BoosterGoldNY, who was recently spotlighted in a Q&A at CriticalBlast.com.
I recommend that you check out his Instagram, where you'll see him posing with Dan Jurgens among many other great pictures. I think they're pretty Boosterrific.

Booster booster Blot added another key commission to his Booster Gold sketchbook in 2019, but I'll let him explain in his Twitter post:
That's awesome, Blot. Congrats.
May everyone have as fortunate a 2020.

Friday afternoon, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that DC finally plans to release their comprehensive Rebirth continuity in 2020. That's a mere 9 years after they threw out decades of character development in a bid to boost sales.
"We're starting to figure out how continuity works," [DC Comics co-publisher Dan] DiDio said about the process, noting that reboots and complicated retcons are what happens when "things stop making sense."
I'm glad that DiDio, who has overseen DC Comics' output since 2004, has finally realized the value of continuity to the types of stories that his company sells. Better late than never, I guess.
Anyway, I'm sure that what you want to know, as a visitor to a Booster Gold fan site, is "how will this affect Booster Gold?" The answer looks to be: Pretty significantly.
DiDio made the announcement at the "DC Nation" panel of this past weekend's New York Comic Convention accompanied with an illustrated graphic. Bleeding Cool spent most of the weekend pouring over the visible bits of that timeline. I can't make out anything, but Rich Johnston seems to think it restores most of the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths continuity as the third generation of DC heroes.
If that is to be believed, it looks like Booster Gold's history once again includes his joining the original "Bwah-ha-ha" Justice League International alongside Blue Beetle. Also restored: Infinite Crisis and Justice League: Generation Lost. Is there time for 52 to have happened in there somewhere? One can only hope.
Will any of this ever make it to print? Will the short-lived New 52 continuity be abandoned? How can Convergence be shoehorned into this new chronology? Who knows. Maybe we'll find out after Doomsday Clock finally ticks down in December.
There have been 2425 blog entries since January 2010.
