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.

Soon to Be New Release: Blue Beetle

I'd say "Spoiler Warning," but somehow I can show you the entire final page of this week's Blue Beetle #6 without giving away any significant details of the issue's story. (Did they do that on purpose?)

As you can see, there is some sort of "tachyon interference" and then a "blop!" and then... "The Hunt for Ted Kord!"

Before you can ask "do those mean that Booster Gold will be in the next issue," I can already answer "yes," because the March solicitations released in December already told us so. The Adrian Gutierrez cover of Blue Beetle #7 will look like this:

So consider this your three-week warning that Booster boosters should definitely plan on picking up Blue Beetle #7 when it arrives in Local Comic Shops everywhere on March 5.

An Earned Vacation

Booster Gold was all over DC's solicitations for March last month, so let's not be too panicky that he's nowhere to be found in the April solicitations released last week (which you can read yourself at GamesRadar.com). Our hero has earned a Spring break.

On an unrelated note, just weeks after Cort shared his Boosterrific John McCrea commission with us, DC is soliciting for an omnibus of the 1990s Garth Ennis/McCrae collaboration Hitman. Booster and Tommy "Hitman" Monaghan only crossed paths once (in Bloodlines #2), so don't expect to find him in there. But if you liked the style of McCrea's sketch, you'll find more to like in Hitman.

Out of the Wilderness

After many, many months, there's finally a Booster Gold sighting in the monthly DC solicitations for March. In fact, there's a plethora of them.

First up, there's March's issue of Blue Beetle, which even features our hero alongside many of his Justice League International teammates on the cover:

Cover by ADRIAN GUTIERREZ

In order to get Ted Kord back on his feet, Jaime will need to work with Booster Gold! Can this Blue and Gold pairing help their friend, or are Ted’s superheroing days over?

And, as if that wasn't enough, DC is also giving us a new collection of Booster Gold volume 2!

BOOSTER GOLD: THE COMPLETE 2007 SERIES BOOK ONE
Written by GEOFF JOHNS, JEFF KATZ, RICK REMENDER, and CHUCK DIXON
Art by DAN JURGENS, NORM RAPMUND, PAT OLLIFFE, and JERRY ORDWAY

Presenting the greatest, most popular, most beloved, and did we say popular, superhero of all time: Booster Gold!
...Or so he hopes to be thought of one day. As the time-traveling hero gets caught up in the madness of changing histories, fighting Time Stealers, and trying to undo the death of his bestie, Blue Beetle, he will learn the hard way
that twisting time too far may just cause it to snap! Collects Booster Gold #0-14 and #1,000,000.

Given that this Book One collects 15 issues, and there are functionally 49 total issues in volume 2, I think we can expect at least two more books to come.

Knowing those are coming is a pretty good early Christmas present.

But wait! There's more

Among the many reprint collections in the monthly solicitations (which include a new printing of 52 Volume One with a very Boosterrific cover), DC has announced a first-time-in-print collection of the WEBTOONs.com Batman: Wayne Family Adventures Volume Four... with Booster Gold and Skeets on the cover!

BATMAN: WAYNE FAMILY ADVENTURES VOLUME FOUR
Written by CRC PAYNE
Art by STARBITE
Cover by VASCO GEORGIEV
$14.99 US, 208 pages, Softcover, ISBN: 978-1-77952-691-5, On Sale May 7
Season two of the smash-hit WEBTOON series continues here! When your superhero life is just as busy as your personal life, there’s never a dull moment in the Bat-Family. Bruce Wayne’s young heroes are still learning to fight and live side by side, but they always have each other’s backs.
Collecting episodes 71-116 of the massively popular WEBTOON series, optimized for a brand-new reading experience in print!

Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but so far as I'm aware, Booster has never appeared in Wayne Family Adventures. I mean, I haven't been reading it, and Googling gives no indication that Booster has ever been there. But it's not impossible. For that price, I'm willing to buy the 6-by-9-inch trade and find out myself.

You can read all the solicitations at AIPTComics.com. Here's to 2024!

Battle of the Sexes

This week is Thanksgiving, the American holiday when we count our blessings. Unfortunately, Booster boosters are going to have to look somewhere other than their Local Comic Shops for their bounty this season, as DC has released their February 2024 solicitations with nary a Booster Gold in sight.

But one cover does get oh-so close.

© DC Comics

As you can see, the Terry Dodson cover for Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #6 homages the Adam Hughes cover to Justice League America #34 with Fire and Ice lounging for some rest and relaxation in the way that Blue Beetle and Booster Gold did on the original.

But since Fire was in the role of reluctant serving wench on the original cover, it seem the tables should have been fully turned, and Booster (or Beetle) should have had to serve the ladies this time around. Instead, poor alien robot L-Ron gets the chore as Club JLI Smallville burns behind them.

Is no Booster better than an amusingly subservient butler Booster? I'll let you be the judge.

In the meantime, you can see pictures of all the covers for DC's February 2024 solicitations at ComicsBeat.com.
