My Favorite Pages: Justice League America 32

My Favorite Pages

Almost all of Booster Gold's dialogue in Justice League America #32 is some sort of snarky comment on something one of his teammates has said. And that's why we love him!

Weirdly, Adam Hughes' art shows Booster's hair parted on his right side on this page, page 8, when it is parted on his left side (where character creator Dan Jurgens typically places the part) on pages 5 and 18. While that might lead you to believe that this page was flipped in production, the opposite is actually true. The original art for page 18 can be seen on, making it clear that the Booster Gold/Blue Beetle/Fire panel was flipped on that page. I cannot find art for page 5 online, but I assume it was flipped there as well?

For the record, Booster Gold's part moved from side to side frequently during Kevin Maguire's time on the Justice League International, but Hughes will keep it pretty consistently on Booster's right side for the next few years.

My Favorite Pages: Justice League Europe 7

My Favorite Pages

Booster Gold is seen on just two pages of Justice League Europe #7. Therefore, I would normally skip this issue and head straight for part three of "The Teasdale Imperative" JLA/JLE crossover story. But his one page is a pretty fun one, so here you go:

Between Adam Hughes and Bart Sears, the Justice League was in some pretty good artistic hands in 1989.

My Favorite Pages: Justice League America 31

My Favorite Pages

Justice League America #31 introduces Adam Hughes as the series' new penciller, and like any human being with functioning eyes, I think his work is amazing. Which is why I can't choose just one favorite page. Here are two!

I'd say the JLI has rarely looked better.

New Release: JLI Omnibus Vol 3

Arriving this week in a Local Comic Shop near you is the third (and final?) volume of the Justice League International Omnibus.

© DC Comics

According to the solicitation, this issue (with a brand new wraparound cover by Kevin Maguire) reprints "stories from Justice League America #51-60, Secret Origins #33-35, Justice League America Annual #5, Green Lantern #18, Justice League Quarterly #2-5, JLA 80-Page Giant #1, Formerly Known as the Justice League #1-6, JLA: Classified #4-9, Justice League Europe #26-36, DC Retroactive: JLA - The '90s #1, Justice League Europe Annual #2, and Justice League International Special #2."

It's funny: when you're reading them as you go along, they didn't seem like so many comics, but in hindsight, that's a heck of a long list.

That's at least part of 46 different comics, which pretty much A) justifies the $150 price tag, and B) puts a cap on the Giffen/DeMatteis era (with the exception of Justice League 3000-3001, which is collected elsewhere).

And the best part is that it excludes the JLI's appearances under the pens of other writers, so if we want to, we can all just pretend that Identity Crisis and Countdown to Infinite Crisis never happened. I can live with that.

My Favorite Pages: JLI Annual 3

My Favorite Pages

Booster Gold spends most of his time in the background of Justice League International Annual #3 as one of many team members taking a world tour of JLI embassies. There's just not a lot of opportunity for him to open his mouth.

But he does get plenty of opportunity to play straight man to his comic foil, Blue Beetle.

As you can see, there's a running gag in this story about Booster making up a fake "Aunt Millie" just to tease Blue Beetle. Is there nothing these two knuckleheads won't do for a laugh? (That's why we love them!)
