FirestormFan Showcases the Art of Booster Gold

To start the week, I'm going to tell you to go away. Specifically, I recommend that you follow this link to, where The Irredeemable Shag! has assembled a pretty interesting demonstration of how the art for a page of Extreme Justice #12 was pieced together, from inks to overlays, to color. Even if Extreme Justice isn't your bag, I think you'll be entertained.

New Release: No, It's Not Booster Gold

If we want to see Booster Gold in comics again, it would be in our best interest to support the work of Booster's creator and biggest champion, the writer who has scripted more Booster Gold adventures than anyone else, Dan Jurgens. After all, who else can get away with answering Twitter calls for more Booster Gold with a "Bwah-ha-ha?"

DC may have taken Justice League International away from him, but Jurgens landed on his feet with The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man. Firestorm fans, like the Irredeemable Shag! over at, seem quite pleased that Jurgens has jettisoned much of the New 52 re-interpretation of the character to draw Firestorm closer to his pre-Flashpoint roots.

If you're a fan of Jurgens or Firestorm -- or if you just want to keep Jurgens employed until he can tell us who the Black Beetle is -- consider picking up The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man at your Local Comic Shop today.

Pointalists Can Be Heroes, Too

Since I started the week with something borrowed from, I feel it is appropriate to end that way, too.

Saturday Morning in Front of La Salle De Justice by Rey Taira

There's a lot to see in the piece, but the best part is no doubt Booster Gold and Godiva canoodling underneath the trees. Ah, l'amour.

The above digital print on canvas by Rey Taira, Saturday Morning in Front of La Salle De Justice, is clearly modeled on the classic 1884 Georges Seaurat painting A Sunday on La Grande Jatte. Taira created this and a companion piece of villains lounging before the Hall of Doom for DC's "We Can Be Heroes" campaign.

This picture was found at, but another view and links to more pieces in the exhibition can be found at The Idol-Head of Dibolu.

Paraplegics Can Be Heroes, Too

The Irredeemable Shag! of brings our attention to the following fan art of the never-before-seen team-up between Jason Rusch and Booster Gold.

Booster Gold and Firestorm by adagadegelo

This version of Booster appears to have a solid gold torso, and no gauntlets (or legs), but I still like it more than the official DCnU costume. I'm a sucker for the high collar.

This was drawn by Brazilian artist Rodrigo Martins dos Santos. You can find a lot of his comic-inspired pin-up art at, where he posts as adagadegelo.

Booster Gold in the Fire and Water Podcast

Rob Kelly of Aquaman Shrine and The Irredeemable Shag of Firestorm Fan turned the latest The Fire and Water Podcast into an hour-long interview with Dan Jurgens, who takes over as writer and artist for Fury of Firestorm starting with issue #13 next week.

Of course, there can be no discussion with Dan Jurgens that doesn't touch on his greatest creation, Booster Gold. For an interview ostensibly about Firestorm, Rob, Shag, and Dan mention Booster Gold surprisingly frequently. (We all know that Firestorm just isn't as interesting as Booster Gold.)

Jurgens discusses how he came to work on Booster Gold in the first place, his interaction with Booster Gold cosplayers, and how he had to adapt Booster Gold for the New 52.

Jurgens: "I don't think that Booster Gold had to change, because he was still fairly true.... Booster was still very consistent, on model with his basic beginnings."

If you're a fan of Firestorm, Dan Jurgens, or comic book artists in general, consider dropping over to and give a listen.
