Gold Exchange Convergence Edition

Russ Burlingame and Dan Jurgens have developed a real rapport over the course of the past seven years of "Gold Exchange" columns. That relationship was renewed last week as the pair discussed Convergence Booster Gold #1:

Burlingame: Do you have in your head an explanation for the All-Star Western thing? Was that taking place on Telos?

Dan Jurgens: Whenever it gets into a case like that, I always want to avoid providing that explanation for every little thing that happened under the sun. I felt very comfortable addressing what the Booster Gold Five Years Later book [Booster Gold: Futures End] was because it just came out last summer. To go beyond that? I don't know how much the fans know and I wanted to make this as accessible as possible to people who were picking up an issue of Booster Gold for the first time. So it was streamlining it more.

In my head, I've always thought of it this way, and that is after Justice League International, Booster got kind of caught in a time vortex where he was bouncing through time. That would have included the events of the Justice League International Annual. And then from there, he kind of appeared in Booster Gold five years later. It's almost as if he could have gone straight to Telos after all that happened. That's just a classic case where rather than break things down, you take things at face value. You saw Booster in Justice League International and then you saw him in All-Star Western and then all of a sudden in the Five Years Later book, one could say that yeah, he bounced through time and then ended up on Telos.

I don't blame Jurgens for A.R.G.U.S. Booster in Justice League International Annual or the character's unexplained appearance in All-Star Western. After all, Jurgens didn't write those books. But you know it's been a bad couple of years for a character when even his creator can't make any sense of it.

Anyway, you can and should read the rest of the interview at

Dan Jurgens Explains It All

On Monday, TwinGalaxiesLive posted an interview with Dan Jurgesn about Convergence that finally explains some of the shenanigans of Booster Gold: Futures End.

Starting at 1:54 into the above video, Jurgens tells us that there is no time travel in Futures End: Booster Gold, just travel through space, as everything takes place on the sentient planet introduced in Convergence.

Mind. Blown.

Does this mean that Jonah Hex, who also appeared to travel through time with Booster in his own series, is also on that planet? Is the older Booster in that issue not the Booster we saw return from Flashpoint, but the older "Supernova" Booster from Time Masters: Vanishing Point? Curiouser and curiouser.

Thanks to Jacqueline G. Lopez and Matthew Hiscox and The Comic Book Show at for this information.

Post Mortem of the Future

Remember this?

That was a small part of the teaser poster for Futures End. Tim drake went on to play a huge part in the series. Booster Gold? Not so much. Let's recap:

(Warning: mild Futures End spoilers ahead.)

We learned in the first issue of the series that thirty-five years in the future of the New 52 Universe, Brother Eye has taken over the world. Many heroes and villains have been corrupted into becoming Brother Eye's agents, including Booster Gold.

Forty-eight issues later, uh, not much changed. Despite the tease, the only Booster Gold we really got during Futures End was a confusing sidebar that had nothing to do with the Futures End plot, but rather set the stage for the next mega-crossover event.

That's definitely not what anyone would have guessed when we saw Booster Gold in that teaser last year. Here's hoping that Convergence treats Booster Gold a little better.

Convergence #1 and the first wave of mini-series are in stores today.

Dan Jurgens on Convergence: Booster Gold

Wow! When Vaneta Rogers interviewed Dan Jurgens for on Monday, she covered the bases!

Newsarama: Dan, who is the star of the Convergence: Booster Gold issues? Is it New 52 Booster Gold, or the older Booster?

Dan Jurgens: The only thing better than one Booster is two Boosters! You'll see both of them here.

Nrama: So does this pick up where we left off in the Futures End: Booster Gold issue from September? Or how does it relate to what we saw in that issue?

Jurgens: Yeah, it picks up not long after the Futures End: Booster Gold issue. They're directly plugged into what's happening here, so it was a natural story progression.

Those are just the first two questions. Rogers goes on to cover what other characters will be appearing in the mini-series, how it ends, and where we might see Booster Gold next. It's far more informative than a typical DC solicitation.

New Release: Justice League 3000 #14

The latest installment of The New Adventures of Blue and Gold (or, as some people call it, Justice League 3000 #14) is released today. The preview of the issue at A.V. Club gives the impression that this will be a very Ice-heavy issue with a hint of Fire. That sounds like something I want to read.

(By the way, the rumor of Justice League 3000's demise has been greatly exaggerated. After Convergence, the book will be reborn as Justice League 3001. Whether Booster Gold survives that transition remains to be seen, but I'm betting yes).

And while you're supporting your Local Comic Shop, consider picking up Futures End #41. Booster Gold can be found in the issue preview seen on Crave Online. While it's probably just a brief cameo, you don't want a hole in your Booster Gold collection, do you? (Thanks to MetalWoman for the spot.)

Buy these issues and make Skeets happy.
