This Day in History: Loose Cannons

Superboy and the Ravers may not be widely recognized by comic book readers today, but it did have its moments, like this panel of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold hitting trying pick up lines on Aura in issue #8:

That issue was released 21 years ago today, which means it's now old enough to drink, unlike Aura, who remains a perpetual teenager. (She had to use a fake ID to get into Guy Gardner's bar. Someone warn Blue and Gold!)

Happy Birthday, Steve Mattsson

It's been nearly 6 months since Booster Gold appeared in a DCnU-continuity book. This isn't the first time Booster has clocked out for an extended period. Back in 1997, Booster made only 2 DCU appearances, one of which was in Superboy and the Ravers #8.

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold made a cameo appearance tring to pick up one of the Ravers in Guy Gardner's bar, Warrior's. It may not have been their finest moment, but it was certainly one of their funniest.

This classic Blue and Gold moment was brought to you in part by Ravers co-writer Steve Mattsson, who celebrates his 54th birthday today. Mattsson made a name for himself in the 1980s with Boris the Bear, a title known for its scything commentary of contemporary pop-culture trends. That's a good pedigree for someone writing for Booster Gold!

Happy Birthday, Mr. Mattsson. Celebrate with a "Loose Cannon" on us!
