Like Son Like Father

No matter what you think about how your father raised you, you can at least be comforted by the fact that you didn't travel back in time to teach him everything he knew about parenting. That would be weird.

Sunday is Father's Day, so be sure to spend time with your dad, whatever your family business is.

Fathers Love Booster Gold

Unlike Rip Hunter, most of us don't have time-travelling parents, but that doesn't mean that we don't look up to our fathers. There's no better way to tell dad that he's your hero than by giving him the gift of Booster Gold.

Remind dad that the classics never go out of style! These vintage wool letters are available from the store of Emmy Lucy. These letters would look great on a classic Booster Gold-themed letterman's jacket (the kind your pop still has hanging in the back of his closet).

Just because dad still has some bad habits doesn't mean that he can't look good. Straight from the store of Gotham City Comics comes this one-of-a-kind Booster Gold cigarette lighter. Obviously Booster Gold can't officially endorse cigarette lighters (he's got to think of the children!), but some fan-made artwork is the next best thing.

This Father's Day, show dad your his biggest booster with Booster Gold!

Call Dad

Earlier this month, Erin commented on a panel from Time Masters #2 (1990) that has in retrospect become something of an Easter Egg. The observation was so amusing, that I thought I'd bring it to the attention of a larger audience. That panel contains the following note tacked on a bulletin board behind Rip Hunter:
Call Dad
Of course what makes the note so amusing is that in the panel, Rip Hunter happens to be on the telephone with Booster Gold.

Two decades would pass before Hunter was revealed to be Booster's son in Booster Gold, Volume 2, #1,000,000. As Erin said, "See, he's always known about future events before readers." Now that's some retroactive continuity I can get behind! Everyone remember to call your dad and wish him a Happy Father's Day this weekend. (And thanks for bringing this to our attention, Erin!)
