Christmas Present from Cort

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:

Booster Gold by John McCrea for Cort Carpenter

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!

Thanks, Cort!

The Future of Imaginary Stories

Unless you're planning on picking up the new DCeased boxed set collection (of previously released trades), don't expect to see Booster Gold in any DC Comics this week. At least not in your Local Comic Shop.

However, Booster does appear on the cover of a recent issue of Ross Pearsall's Super-Team Family Presents... at braveandboldlost.blogspot.com:

Super Team Family Presents #4201

There's a lot to like about this potential crossover. In addition to the fact that both Booster Gold and Phillip J. Fry are temporally-displaced persons with robot sidekicks, Futurama has never shied away from criticizing the sort of runaway commercialism that Booster Gold often represents.

And, of course, that pic of Booster comes from 2008's Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st-Century #19, and Futurama is set in... you guessed it... the 31st century.

Yeah, I'd definitely buy that comic. I might even be willing to pay quite a bit more than 60¢.

UPDATE 2023-10-17: Booster booster Marty writes in to let us know that a picture of Booster does appear in Batman Superman World's Finest #20. So buy that and make Skeets happy!

Uh Oh Spaghettios

It appears there was some data loss on the host server, and I've lost everything since Tuesday morning. Which, thankfully isn't much, as I haven't even gotten around to adding Action Comics #1057 to the database yet. So maybe it's a good thing that it's been a slow month for Booster Gold.

[For future reference, the lost post was a link to a custom Super Powers Collection-styled Booster Gold and Goldstar action figure by SuperPoweredCustoms at www.etsy.com.]

Here in the wee hours of Friday morning, I'm still finding a few glitches in the web hosting services. I'm not sure what all this means exactly (hardware failure? user error? malicious action?), but rather than risk losing another post, I'm just going to backup the database again and call it a week. See you Monday, I hope!

Wanna Make Somethin' of It?

Since we started the week with a Justice League International theme, let's keep it going!

Check out this Boosterrific cosplay — with period-accurate popped collar! — recently posted to Instagram:

No more 'Of America'.. The world's greatest heroes have gone international! @amazingpurples via Instagram.com August 20, 2023

The Booster Gold cosplayer is the original poster, Lisandro Becerra aka amazingpurples, which only makes perfect sense. Who is going to be more eager to show off than Booster Gold?

Keep up the great work, everybody.

Deviant Artists

I had no idea what to post today. Booster isn't in any new comics, isn't expected to be in any upcoming comics, isn't in the news. He'd be furious.

But not all is lost. There's still plenty of great Booster Gold content out there if you know where to look. For example, these delights are on DeviantArt.com:

Booster and Beetle by Toks Solarin

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold by Heads Up Studios

Booster Gold anniversary cover by Hernan Cabrera

Booster may be missing in action, but he still has some pretty great (and talented) fans out there!
