Hey, DC, your website, dccomics.com/comics, is hard to use when I'm standing in my Local Comic Shop with my smart phone trying to figure out whether or not they should have received a particular new comic this week. Seems you might want to work on that.
For example, apparently you just released the trade collection Legion of Super-Heroes Volume 1: Millennium, reprinting Booster Gold's appearance in Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2. That's great! It's a delightful Michael "Booster" Carter appearance written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Nicola Scott.
SPOILER ALERT: He does.
Every Booster Gold fan would enjoy that!
Fortunately, I now have the opportunity to browse my Local Comic Shop on Tuesday and report on my latest misadventure the next day. That part of the new distribution scheme, that part I like.
So 2020 is not *all* bad.

DC waited until Comic Con was over to release their October solicitations. There's not much Booster Gold to be seen except for Booster's previously announced gust-starring Legion of Super-Heroes appearance.
LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: MILLENNIUM #2
written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
art by NICOLA SCOTT, JIM CHEUNG, JEFF DEKAL and RYAN SOOK

Get on board for a journey through the future like no other! A gallery of all-star artists join our mysterious guide as they continue their 1,000-year journey toward the 31st century, inspiring Booster Gold to time-travel, debating fighting tactics with O.M.A.C. and making their way to the front door of the Legion of Super-Heroes. The DC event of the future is here now!
On sale 10/2/19; 48 pages; $4.99 (card stock variant cover $5.99)
It's unclear what the alternate cover will be, but Booster doesn't appear on Ryan Sook's solicited cover. (It's a nice cover, about as good as covers without Booster Gold get.)
We already got a good look at some of Nicola Scott's interior art back in June, art that demonstrates Booster will be joined by some old friends.
It's certainly something to look forward to.

I thought Booster Gold's appearance in a DCeased one-shot would be the biggest news of the week, especially as it looks like Booster was excluded from the comics spinning-off from Heroes in Crisis (per Hollywood Reporter). I was wrong.
Over on ComicBook.com, Russ Burlingame has interviewed writer Brian Michael Bendis about his plans for a new Millennium mini-series that will reintroduce readers to DC's future continuity on the way to launching new Legion of Super-Heroes stories. That news would be welcome enough without the bonus announcement that Space Museum security guard Michael Jon Carter will be playing a role in Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium issue 2.
Burlingame: It's funny, seeing Booster becoming part of a building block to the Legion, since he has sparred with them a few times about his stolen Legion ring!
Bendis: Speaking of which, the Booster Gold chapter is drawn by Nicola Scott, if you need another reason to buy this. I love Nicola's work so much, but she's one of my closest friend's closest collaborators. She works with Greg Rucka so closely that I never thought I'd get a chance to do something, and we did this thing together. It's just, on a personal level, one of my great moments as a comics creator that I got to do this with Nicola.
Burlingame: I won't lie: at either San Diego or New York last year, I spoke with her briefly and we ended up talking about how much she wanted to draw Booster.
Bendis: That happened a few times on this project. I don't want to speak for the other creators, but I had accidentally said, "Hey, I think you'd be perfect for (blank)." And they go, "That's my favorite thing, I can't believe you're asking!" It happened quite a few times on this project. I get excited, because I know for the few pages they're drawing, it's going to be among the best pages of their whole careers, because they think this might be the only chance they get to do it. Nicola's Booster pages reek with the feeling of, "Oh, my God, I finally got to draw Booster Gold."
DC has already released a few pages from the issue (visible at Newsarama.com). I'm in no position to judge whether they are the best of Scott's whole career, but they are pretty darn Boosterrific.
Judging from those panels, it sure looks like DC will be allowing Bendis to roll back Booster's New 52 origin and realigning his "past" with his pre-Flashpoint beginnings. Super sweet.
