New Release: Fire and Ice 4

I've mentioned Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville a few times here on the Boosterrific Blog, but apparently that's not enough. Fortunately for all other Booster boosters, Jake has taken me to task.

I have begrudgingly been keeping up with the Fire and Ice series DC is putting out, and while the comic itself isn't really all that for me, it's just nice to see the girls again, given that they are two near & dear favorites (a sentiment I'm sure many Booster boosters resonate with). So it has been particularly nice to come across mentions of Booster two issues in a row. Issue #3 (which overall did not meet the Gold Standard, but you can't ask for much these days) repeatedly brought up Kooey Kooey Kooey, and then directly mentioned those "dummies" by name, Booster and Beetle, as well as their "harebrained schemes".

Issue #4 features a Booster Gold drag queen. Take that as you will.

Thanks, Jake. I am also reading this series, and I also recognize that I'm not the target audience, although I'm not entirely sure who is. I didn't realize there was a market for LGBTQ+ friendly romance comics with extra cannibalism.

Target audience or not, I can't be too mad at a series that firmly restores Tora's Norse ice goddess roots (and features a bunch of the DCU's wacky lesser-seen characters). In other words, I'll take what I can get of my favorite womance.

It's only a six-issue mini-series, so I'm sure I'll keep reading... at least until we learn the Booster Gold drag queen's stage name. Goldie Nuff? Queen G? Trixie Collins? The suspense is killing me.

New Releases: In Memoriam

If you didn't buy any DC Comics this week, you might not have seen Kevin Maguire's tribute to the late Keith Giffen surrounded by his creations (in the style of the immortal Justice League #1 cover) that appeared in each of DC's monthly titles.

As you can see, the famously irascible Giffen is in the center position originally occupied by the famously irascible Guy Gardner. Very fitting.

Also fitting, Giffen wearing a t-shirt with Booster and Beetle laughing. That image isn't new; it comes from a print that Maguire created for DC in 2014. Giffen didn't create either character, but he and his writing partner J.M. DeMatteis did create "Bwa-ha-ha" and build Blue and Gold into comicdom's greatest bromance.

The second page of the two-page tribute is quotes of Giffen's friends and co-creators. You can read them online at

Thanks for the laughs, Keith.

New Release: Batman Superman World's Finest

While my attention was focused on turkey and apple pie last week, DC sneaked a Booster Gold by me!

As you can see, the Earth-22 version of our hero (and Skeets!) makes a very brief appearance in Batman Superman World's Finest #21, now on sale at Local Comic Shops everywhere:

The events of this issue take place prior to the events of Kingdom Come, so this is chronologically Earth-22 Booster's first appearance!

It seems likely that we'll see Booster again in the next issue, currently scheduled for a December 19 release. You can be sure I'll be paying attention to that.

New Old Release: War of the Gods 4

I don't have to look at any previews to tell you that Booster Gold will definitely be in your Local Comic Shop this week... because he was there before.

This is page 8, panel 8 of 1991's War of the Gods:

A reprint of that comic, now called Wonder Woman War of the Gods Special Edition #4, will be available at fine comic shops everywhere this week. Given that panel is Booster Gold's only appearance in this otherwise mediocre event mini-series, Skeets will understand if you choose to buy it or not.

New Release: Blue Beetle 2

As you can see from the preview at, Booster Gold and his Justice League International pals are definitely in this week's Blue Beetle #2 to support their oft-injured friend, Ted Kord.

You don't need me to tell you that buying this issue will make Skeets happy.
