New Release: Injustice 2 29

Happy Independence Day! If you can tear yourself away from fireworks and hot dogs, get yourself to your Local Comic Shop today and get your hands on Injustice 2 #29, featuring Booster Gold's new jacket!

Finally! A costume update that looks better than what he was already wearing!

While you're there, consider picking up a copy of the suddenly very controversial Batman #50. Your LCS probably ordered too many of them.

(A quick aside for those of you not glued to the comics press: on Sunday, with the consent of DC Comics, The New York Times newspaper spoiled the events of Batman #50. According to, DC vice-president of sales John Cunningham defended the company's actions by essentially saying that DC wanted to mitigate what they knew would be terrible backlash if fans didn't find out about the issue contents until the day of release. That's practically an admission that they had promoted and sold the issue — retailers had to commit to orders for the 50+ covers two months ago — on false pretenses. I'm no lawyer, but I would think that qualifies as fraud.)

But I'm not advocating that you pick up Batman because I'm a nice guy who wants to see Local Comics Shops stay in business. No, like Booster Gold, I'm a little shallower than that. I'm suggesting you pick up an issue because Skeets is in it.

What is Skeets doing here? I have no idea. It being a Tom King written book, I bet there's no logical reason, probably just an excuse to get Booster Gold fans to buy a copy. At least in my case, it will work.

Some Fashions Never Go out of Style

It was announced over the weekend that Action Comics #1000 will restore Superman's red trunks.

I think it's great that DC is finally restoring the traditional Superman look most strongly associated with the character. Say what you will about looking to the future, but when you've been wearing one costume for the better part of 80 years, people sort of expect to see you wearing that costume. Truth and Justice don't change, so I don't see why the American Way should, either. Right is right if nobody's right, and Superman's red trunks are just right.

Now that we've fixed Superman, we can we move on to more important things. Like restoring Booster Gold's long-lost high collar!

(Conglomerate leather jacket is optional.)

Don't worry, oblong Skeets. Once we get the collar back, you're next.

The Perfect Team-Up

I'm sure that if Booster Gold thought it would get him some extra attention, he'd change his gold to green and orange polka dots.

Should Booster Gold color his uniform pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

No man is an island. For Micheal Jon Carter to become the Booster Gold we all know and love, he had to have some help along the way. Which supporting character has contributed the most to your enjoyment of Booster and his exploits?

Paint the Town Pink

I enjoy that Booster Gold was a college athlete, but it's his "never-say-die" attitude that keeps me wanting more. Seems I'm not alone.

What do you like most about Booster Gold?

To promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the NFL likes to add the color pink to every team's football uniforms. If this is such a good idea, maybe super heroes should adopt a similar strategy.
