This Day in History: Peak Chromium Age

Released on July 19, 1994: Zero Hour: Crisis in Time #3.

In hindsight, looking at the costume designs in this comic, maybe the reason that time was collapsing on itself in this crisis event was because the DCU had gotten as "Extreme" as any one timeline could stand.

This Day in History: Blackest Night

Released on July 15, 2009: Blackest Night #1.

Blackest Night is a story about heroes coming back from the dead, but it would take the "rebirth" of the entire DCU (in 2016's appropriately named DC Universe Rebirth #1) to actually bring Ted Kord back to life.

History Is Already 30 Years Old

DC's August solicitations are out (you can read them at Booster's run in Batman: The Brave and the Bold apparently ends in issue 15, because Lois Lane is taking his place in issue 16.

But there is a some good news for Booster boosters. Dan Jurgens is back with another issue celebrating another 30th anniversary of an event story he created in the 1990s. This year, it's the Zero Hour 30th Anniversary Special #1.

Booster Gold didn't play a very big part of Zero Hour, but he was there, which is good enough reason for him to be on Alan Quah's variant cover.

Sure, Booster wore a different costume during the original Zero Hour, but Zero Hour was all about changing history. So maybe now... he didn't?

I guess we'll find out when the issue is released on August 28.

This Day in History: Boosting a(nother) Time Machine

If there's one thing that Booster Gold loves, it's stealing time machines from Rip Hunter.

On this date in 1990, Booster Gold makes a 2-page cameo appearance in Time Masters #4 just so that he can help Animal Man get his hands on one of Hunter's prototypes.

To be fair to Booster, he didn't actually know he was stealing this one. Animal Man lied about reimbursing Rip from Justice League coffers for the totally understandable personal reason that he wanted to travel back in time to save his family from being murdered. Who wouldn't do the same? (For more details on how that goes, read Animal Man #22. Spoilers: not well.)
