I Love Your Sketchbook

Spend your romantic holiday with something you'll really love. By which I mean the latest pieces in Cort Carpenter's Booster Gold sketchbook!

I'm of the opinion that there is no bad Booster Gold fan art, but it actually hurts my feelings that the Banks art isn't the cover on some published comic.

Thanks for sharing, Cort!

This Day in History: Booster Briefs

If you visit your Local Comic Shop today, you'll see that tradition holds true, with releases of books like Grayson Annual and Wonder Woman '77 Special. That's because today is the fifth comic-book release day in the month of September. DC has traditionally reserved these "fifth week" dates for the release of annuals and specials.

One such example is JLA In Crisis Secret Files, released on this date in 1998. Booster Gold doesn't play a very big part of this special. The late '90s were a fallow period for our hero. But any retrospective of Justice League history cannot help but include some Gold, even if only in a background role.

See anything funny about that panel? Booster looks like he's wearing swim briefs!

It's common for characters appearing in one-shot issues to look a little off-model. After all, the artists on these things wouldn't always be familiar with the characters they were drawing.

Prior to this panel, Darryl Banks had only drawn Booster as part of the large crowd attending the funeral of Green Lantern Hal Jordan. In that issue, Booster wore his Mark X armored power-suit.

We'll give Banks a pass for this snafu. Besides, the inker he was working with certainly had no idea what he was doing. It was the first time he'd ever worked on Booster Gold for DC Comics. His name was Norm Rapmund. I wonder whatever happened to that guy?
