Just Take My Wallet

Three things today:

Thing 1: Although I don't normally watch movie trailers — they lie! — I made an exception for the upcoming Blue Beetle, which for legal reasons isn't titled Blue Spider-Man. I was thinking to myself, "This isn't for me," when the trailer gave me this:

The Bug! That is definitely for me. I still doubt we'll be seeing Booster Gold onscreen in that movie, but the trailer now makes me think we'll definitely be some Booster Gold Easter Eggs. We'll find out more in August.

Thing 2: This is only tangentially related to Booster Gold, but Mark Russell, writer of Booster Gold / The Flintstones Special team-up, has launched a Kickstarter to sell his own book of cartoons, Bunkbed Mishaps. One of the reward tiers includes a signed copy of The Flintstones: The Deluxe Edition collection with reprints the aforementioned team-up.

Full disclosure: I'm a big fan of all of Russell's writing (everything from God Is Disappointed in You to My Bad), so of course I'll be buying Bunkbed Mishaps. If you're interested in learning more about his latest project (or getting your hands on a signed Booster Gold comic), you'll find info at

Thing 3: While we're on the subject of things I will be buying on Kickstarter, I might as well go ahead and throw my public support behind Karl Kesel's latest Impossible Jones comic book. Maybe you know Kesel as the creator of the Connor Kent incarnation of Superboy, but Booster boosters should always remember that he inked the fantastic story "When Titans Date" in Justice League Quarterly #10 (where Booster Gold and his fellow leaguers spy on Ted Kord's dinner date).

In addition to being a lot of fun to read, Kesel's Impossible Jones character raises similar ethical questions about what it means to steal your way to being a "hero" as a certain Michael "Booster" Carter. You can read more about her latest adventure, Impossible Jones and American A.N.G.E.L., on

Okay, that's enough shilling for today. You may now resume your regularly scheduled ad-free Internet browsing.

Talking about Legends

The Internet's premier Booster Gold reporter, Russ Burlingame, is writing another book, this time an oral history of DC's Legends of Tomorrow television show.

Now, I've always been a little ambivalent about Legends. I watched a few episodes the first season because it had a "Rip Hunter" in it, but when I discovered Legends' take on characters in the pages of DC Comics (especially "Rip Hunter") was a bad match for my headcanon, I lost interest quickly.

That said, Booster Gold did appear in the series' final episode, and any oral history of the television show will have to cover how Booster was introduced just in time for the show to get canceled. I could definitely read more about how all involved felt about that.

I asked Russ what else Booster Gold fans should expect, and he said:

I already talked to Dan Park (who wrote the BG backup comic [Earth-Prime: Legends of Tomorrow #3]) and to some folks about the direct influence of Time Masters: Vanishing Point and Booster Gold #5 (which seems to have clearly been the emphasis for the episode "The Fixed Point"). So while Booster isn't a huge presence in the book, he's definitely a bigger presence than you would expect from a Legends book.

That's good enough for me.

If you'd like to join me in helping Russ, you can pre-order a copy of his book at

Putting a Bow on It

Those of you who follow Boosterrific on Facebook have already seen this, but for those of you who don't, Brian Miller of Hi-Fi Designs posted this yesterday:

To recap: First Dan Jurgens tells us that he's drawing "BG". Then Norm Rapmund says he's inking someone with a star on his chest who isn't Captain America. And now Hi-Fi designs removes any lingering doubt. This is definitely a Booster Gold cover.

Jurgens, Rapmund, and Hi Fi were the art team for most of the late, lamented Booster Gold Volume 2. Isn't it nice to have the band back together?

If you'd like to reward Miller for sharing the image with us, consider donating to his Kickstarter campaign for the Femme Mystique graphic novel. Good luck, Brian.

Shameless Self-Promotion 2015

In the grand tradition of Booster Gold, I am using this platform to promote my latest business venture: SnarfQuest Tales the video game on

Some of you older Dungeons and Dragons and comic fans may recognize Larry Elmore's high-fantasy SnarfQuest comic strip as a long-running feature in Dragon Magazine. My friends and I at Cellbloc Studios are, with Larry's support, turning the comic into a point-and-click video game.

If that sounds like something you'd enjoy, please consider supporting our Kickstarter project. And even if your interests lie elsewhere, consider supporting our Kickstarter as a way of indirectly supporting (Somebody's got to pay the bills around here.)
