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):

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.

History Is Already 30 Years Old

DC's August solicitations are out (you can read them at AIPTComics.com). Booster's run in Batman: The Brave and the Bold apparently ends in issue 15, because Lois Lane is taking his place in issue 16.

But there is a some good news for Booster boosters. Dan Jurgens is back with another issue celebrating another 30th anniversary of an event story he created in the 1990s. This year, it's the Zero Hour 30th Anniversary Special #1.

Booster Gold didn't play a very big part of Zero Hour, but he was there, which is good enough reason for him to be on Alan Quah's variant cover.

Sure, Booster wore a different costume during the original Zero Hour, but Zero Hour was all about changing history. So maybe now... he didn't?

I guess we'll find out when the issue is released on August 28.

The Past Is the Future

We learned last month that Booster Gold will be in May's Batman: Brave and the Bold #13. In DC's solicitations for June (now online at AIPTComics.com), released last week, we now know our hero will also be in Batman: Brave and the Bold #14... and on the cover!

BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #14
Written by TIM SEELEY, MARK RUSSELL, JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV, and HAYDEN SHERMAN
Art by KELLEY JONES, JON MIKEL, LISANDRO ESTHERREN, and HAYDEN SHERMAN
Cover by SIMONE DI MEO
$7.99 US | 64 pages | Prestige | (all covers are card stock)
ON SALE 6/25/24

Nightwing and Deadman continue their rail-ridin' odyssey and find themselves face-to-face with a terrifying new foe. Booster Gold's adventures across time and space have delivered him to an alternate future inhabited by dinosaurs—but this alternate reality needs protectors, and it has them in the form of the all-new, all-different Jurassic League! In the finale of "The Poison Within," Artemis's attempts to return home are blocked by the anti-Amazon agents of AXE! Batman and Guy Gardner delve into a realm of high strangeness that is truly out of this world as they confront the grey alien that has crash-landed in Gotham. And last, but far from least, Hayden Sherman dazzles with a brand-new Batman Black & White story that needs to be seen to be believed.

I did not read Jurassic League, so I'm surprised to learn that it takes place in the future. What a twist!

Thanks to Rob Snow for making sure we didn't miss this solicitation.

Braver, Bolder, and Batmaner

DC's May 2024 solicitations hit the web on Friday, and yeah, as usual, there's a lot of Batman. But in this case, that's not all bad...

...because Booster Gold's going to be in Batman: The Brave and the Bold #13!

BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #13
Written by TIM SEELEY, MARK RUSSELL, DELILAH S. DAWSON, JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV, JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, RODNEY BARNES
Art by KELLEY JONES, JON MIKEL, SERG ACUÑA, LISANDRO ESTHERREN, JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER
Cover by SIMONE DI MEO
Variant cover by FRANCESCO MATTINA
Variant cover by JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER
$7.99 US | 64 pages | Prestige | (all covers are card stock)
ON SALE 5/28/24

Brave and the Bold enters its second year with five tremendous tales! Nightwing and Deadman face the ghosts of the circus, as presented in spectacularly horrific detail by Kelley Jones! Booster Gold (allegedly) causes a disaster that must be fixed by…the JURASSIC LEAGUE?! Artemis’s quest comes to its stunning conclusion! Batman and Guy Gardner face high strangeness when a UFO crashes in Gotham! And finally, Jason Shawn Alexander brings his legendary talents to Batman Black and White!

The question remains which of those writers/artists will be writing the Booster Gold story. The 2022 The Jurassic League mini-series was written by Daniel Warren Johnson and drawn by Juan Gedeon, neither of whom appear to be attached to this project. Any guesses?

You can read the rest of the solicitations at AIPTComics.com.
