Just Like Old Times

Reminder to everyone: After moving to Tuesdays during the pandemic, DC is back to Wednesday releases starting today.

This would be bigger news if there was a Booster Gold comic coming out today, but today also marks the official start of DC's annual event, "Absolute Power," and unless our hero puts in a cameo in one of the many, many tie-ins (34 and counting so far!), we're not expecting him to make his appearance in that until Wonder Woman #13 in September. ["We" were wrong. See update below.]

So you'll have to find something else to enjoy this New Comic Day. May I suggest those sweet Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez turnaround alternate artist spotlight covers on Batman and Shazam? Or the Kevin Maguire variant cover for Kurt Busiek's new comic? Or Geoff John's long awaited JSA #10?

But I don't need to tell you. If you're reading Boosterrific!, you love comics. I'm sure you will find yourself something to read.

UPDATE: As Rob Snow has pointed out to me, Booster Gold is seen on multiple pages in today's Absolute Power #1. Hooray!

Snakes... Why'd It Have to Be Snakes?

You know how there's that one thing you can't stand, but you have to suck it up and get through that thing to continue the pursuit of your personal holy grail (or, as the case may be, the Ark of the Covenant)?

Well, Booster Gold appears on the cover of one comic in DC's September solicitations as seen at AIPTComics.com):

WONDER WOMAN #13
Written by TOM KING
Art by TONY S. DANIEL
Cover by TONY S. DANIEL
$4.99 US | 40 pages | Variant $5.99 US (card stock)
ON SALE 9/18/24

ABSOLUTE POWER TIE-IN!
Gamorra found! Wonder Woman and Robin have finally located Amanda Waller’s super jail holding the powerless heroes they once fought alongside. Can the new dynamic duo break them out before they become trapped themselves? An undercover ally may hold the key to everything!

Note that the solicitation text doesn't explicitly say that Booster Gold will be in the book. He might be only on Tony Daniel's cover. I guess we'll find out in September.

Thank to Rob Snow for the bittersweet news that I'm order to keep my complete collection of Booster Gold comics going, I'll be buying yet another Tom King-written comic book.

What We Learned at Phoenix Fan Fusion 2024

Get ready to loosen those purse strings this summer!

Booster Gold was one of several DC action figures revealed at the McFarlane Toys presentation at Phoenix Fan Fusion 2024, as we can see in the above image from In Pursuit of Toys on Instagram. You can watch the whole presentation on YouTube.com.

I sure do like that high collar.

Thanks to Rob Snow and Mike Foster for keeping us informed.

They Were Serious about the "Infinite" Part

Rob Snow alerts me that Warner Bros has released a trailer for Justice League: Crisis On Infinite Earths – Part Three that contains images of Booster Gold.

So I went looking, and sure enough, at about 12 seconds in, there's our boy:

Booster Gold, Red Star, Star Sapphire, Starfire, Starman: what is this, Earth-Shooting Stars?

So whenever that movie comes out (the trailer just says "coming soon"), know that it'll have at least a second or two of Booster Gold in it. At least until the Anti-Monitor kills him.

If you want to see the rest of the trailer, you can find it on YouTube.com.

Thanks, Rob.
