Plugging the Holes

I'd like to end the week with an extra special thank you to Logan Peterson and Shawn Baston, without whom the database wouldn't be nearly complete enough.

These two eagle-eyed Booster boosters notified me about our hero's cameos in Secret Origins #10 and Grayson #6.

No Booster Gold collector needs to feel bad if their collection never includes either of these minor appearances, but we're all better off as a community because we have people like these two watching out for the rest of us. Thank you!

[UPDATE 2015-03-26: Kenneth Baillargeon tried to tell me about the Secret Origins appearance on Facebook the week it came out, but I didn't spot that until just now. I'm sorry for not crediting you earlier, Kenneth. I'm not good with the Facebook. (Because, yes, I'm a grumpy old man.) So if anyone needs to reach me, you can find me at webmaster at boosterrific dot com.]

Booster Gold Spotted in Secret Stash

First-class Booster booster Shawn Baston sees Booster Gold everywhere, including a recent episode of Kevin Smith's Comic Book Men.

Comic Book Men on AMC

In the episode that aired November 23, 2014, you can easily spot Booster Gold, Volume 2, #1 and #12 there between Ming Chen and Walt Flanagan. If you've got great vision, you might be able to make out issue #11 on the left behind Ming's head.

I don't know how Comic Book Men runs its store, but you can spot the same issues on the wall behind the customer selling Ultraman dolls earlier in the episode. Is the Secret Stash comic shop filled to the gills with Booster Gold comics, or were these issues just convenient to fill some space the day they were filming? I'm guessing the latter.

In any event, this AMC television show has been added to the Boosterrific list of Other Media appearances. Thanks for the catch, Shawn!

In Case You Missed It

At least Booster Gold hasn't entirely disappeared from the DCnU. The mysterious organization Spyral is keeping an eye on our hero, as seen in last week's Grayson #1.

I picked up the book only because long-time Booster booster Shawn Baston clued me into the cameo, and I wasn't disappointed. I have no idea how the events of Grayson are supposed to fit into the post-Flashpoint chronology of Batman, but maybe things like that aren't important anymore. What is important is that the book is fun, beautiful, and — most importantly — contains Booster Gold.

What's for Breakfast?

Booster Gold made an appearance in a Smallville Season 11 #12 earlier this month, and I missed it! Thankfully, first-class Booster booster Shawn Baston took me to task for my omission.

Booster Gold Cereal. If it's good enough for Lois Lane, it's good enough for the rest of us!

Classic Booster Gold Commission

There has been so much Booster Gold news lately, I haven't had the space to post all the Booster Gold sketches that I've been collecting. I'll start correcting that with this post of from Dan Jurgens himself.

Shawn Baston, (whose name should be familiar to longtime Booster Gold fans and visitors to, commissioned this sketch from Dan Jurgens at Spring Con 2013 last month.

Thanks, Shawn, for sharing your new prized possession with us!
