The Blot's Sketchbook: Comicpalooza 2019

I wasn't planning on starting the week with any Booster Gold art, but when the Blot tweeted the latest addition to his sketchbook, I couldn't wait to share it.

Jae Lee draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says

This sketch was commissioned from artist Jae Lee at Comicpalooza 2019. I'm sure you'll agree it makes a fine addition to The Blot's collection, and a boosterrific way to start your week. Thanks for sharing, Blot!

Booster Gold Fans Are the Best Fans

Let me take this opportunity to say that Boosterrific.com would not be Boosterrible if not for the support of Booster Gold fans worldwide. Thank you all. Today I will illustrate that in two ways:

First of all, big congratulations to Logan Peterson, who sent me this recent email:

I'm happy to say I just celebrated a long-awaited achievement. After years of scouring through longboxes and haggling with online vendors, I completed my Booster Gold floppy collection this weekend! With my procurement of Suicide Squad #13, I've officially collected a copy of every issue Michael Jon Carter has appeared in to date according to the database. :)

As I was double-checking my collection against the Boosterific listings to make sure I hadn't missed anything, I actually found that there were two Booster appearances not listed in the database. Check out Tales of the Teen Titans #89 and 90--Booster shows up briefly in all his caped glory.

How awesome is that? Answer: very awesome.

Logan was right. I did not have those Tales of the Teen Titans in the Boosterrific database. Those issues were reprints of New Teen Titans #29 and 30 which I had somehow overlooked... for 30 years. *sigh* But that oversight is now corrected. Thanks, Logan!

My second proof that Booster Gold fans are the best is our old friend The Blot, who via pointed me to this Instagram post by 23kidoo (aka Scott Swanson):

23kidooCreated this line of books for Hallmark and have gotten to work with some great folks in the process. @steve_willaredt on this, one of my favorites in the series. Being able to stray from core heroes and do @Bizarro đź‘Ť. A few Easter Eggs in there for fun #boostergold + each book comes with an itty bitty plush.

That book by Alex Boney and Steve Willaredt (in which tiny Booster Gold and friends appear to help Bizarro fix everything) is officially called the "itty bittys® Superman™ Bizarro™ Fixes Everything Stuffed Animal and Book Set." You can buy it on Hallmark.com for $19.95. It was released last year, and I may never have known about it without a shout out from The Blot. Thanks, Blot!

Keep all the tips coming, Booster boosters! If you ever find anything that you think Booster Gold fans should know about, you can always drop me a line through my convenient contact form. You're all the best.

The Blot's Sketchbook: Comicpalooza 2017

I begged The Blot for another peek at his Booster Gold sketchbook, and he finally gave in! Check out these two he picked up at last year's Comicpalooza convention in Houston:

From left to right, that's the work of David Finch and Tony Harris. (Click on either image to see a larger pic in a new window.)

Thanks, Blot. You're a true Booster booster!

The Blot's Sketchbook Adds Phil Hester

It's been a while since we last saw The Blot's sketchbook, but he's back to add this commission he got from Phil Hester at Bedrock City Comic Company in Houston, Texas last October.

I particularly love that Hester has drawn Booster's original hollow star logo!

You can see more commissions in The Blot Says' Booster Gold Sketchbook on Flickr.com. Thanks for sharing, Blot.

The Blot Finds

If you thought that a mini Thomas the Tank Engine toy was the strangest Booster Gold-related thing we'd see in 2017, you might be right. That's pretty strange.

But yesterday, Booster booster The Blot announced on his blog that he's found something else plenty unusual: a 1.5-inch Booster Gold-themed Dunny keychain.

I can hear some of you asking "What is a Dunny?" (I asked it myself.) To quote from the manufacturer's website, KidRobot.com:

A DUNNY is a type of vinyl designer art toy created by Paul Budnitz and Tristan Eaton, and produced by Kidrobot since 2004. The toy is based on a rabbit figure with distinctive tubular ears. The origin of the name Dunny came from a combination of street slang and one of the early "Devil Bunny" prototypes.

I have no idea how that concept ties in with the DC Universe, but I think the same thing about that Thomas & Friends toy. All I need to know is where I can buy them (which, frankly, probably answers my question). Lucky for us, the Blot has a lead on that information at TheBlotSays.com.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Blot. I wonder what bizarre Booster Gold item we'll get next?
