Only Thirty Dollars an Issue

Last week in his interview with Vaneta Rogers for Newsarama.com, Dan Jurgens said

Tell DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio you'll buy 10 copies each of every issue and that all your friends will do the same and you'll have a Booster Gold series in no time.

DC Comics has been as good as their word since promising to "Hold the Line at $2.99" in 2011. Therefore, you could expect to grab 10 copies of a new Booster Gold comic for $30 (plus tax). Maybe less, if your Local Comic Shop offers subscriber discounts, as many do. I know a lot of people who spend much more than that on comics every week!

So to make it easy for you to send the word to Dan DiDio that Booster Gold fans are willing to celebrate the Capitalist system for which Booster Gold stands, I've made this handy postcard:

Just download the PDF, print it out, sign your name, affix a stamp, drop it in the mail, and start a savings account for the day when Dan DiDio takes us up on our offer!

From Booster with Love

While we're on the subject of things that I didn't know existed, let's add the Justice League International Postcards set released in 1988. I had seen the Kevin Maguire/Joe Rubenstein/Steve Oliff art on several occasions, but I was unaware of its source until I stumbled upon this 2006 blog post at roadkillbudda.blogspot.com.

The text on the back of this card reads "Born in the 25th century, Michael Jon Carter longed for a life of adventure in our own time. Using a stolen time machine and the advanced technology of his day, he traveled back to '80s Metropolis where, through self-promotion and shrewd investments, he became the celebrity super-hero Booster Gold!" That's about as succinct a description of Booster Gold as you're likely to find, fitting for the back of a postcard.

This 15-card set of cards cost $5.00 in 1988. Given the rate of inflation, a new set of cards would cost you $10.00 today. Likewise, postcard postage has doubled from 14¢ in 1988 to 29¢ today. That's still less than $1.00 per card, but not by very much.

Flight Rings for Everyone

It appears that I'm not the only one who would rather have a Flight Ring than a rainbow of fruit-flavored Lantern rings. ComicsAlliance.com reports on a fan-driven postcard drive to give DC a piece of our mind. I love the delicious irony of an old-school postcard campaign to encourage someone to produce an artifact of future-tech. Details on where you can send your postcard (and you ARE sending a postcard) can be found over at svengalilad.blogspot.com.
