This Day in History: How Time Flies

Booster Gold was still the new kid on the block when he made a guest appearance in the inaugural issue of the Time Masters limited series 29 years ago today.

Booster Gold, Volume 1, #13 had reintroduced Rip Hunter to the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Universe, and Time Masters fleshed out Hunter's obsession with time (hint: it started with his family).

The familial relationship between Booster Gold and Rip Hunter wouldn't be established for another 18 years (and several continuity reboots), so anything in this issue that connects the two as father/son is purely coincidental. Still, given that this story is obsessed with conspiracy theories, it's fun to re-read with an eye for what the future actually holds.

Time Masters Are on His List

So Comic Con has taught us that we can look forward to seeing Booster Gold in action figures and cartoons. But what about the comics? Things might be looking up there, too. reported from the DC Rebirth: Superman panel where Action Comics writer Dan Jurgens had this to say:

"One of the great things about having a book coming out twice a month, you can explore corners you might not be able to in a monthly book," Jurgens said, as having "forty pages a month to play with" allows for more detours.

A fan asked what the Time Masters have been up to since "Convergence." "It's on my list of things to get to," [Jurgens] said. "The good thing about two books a month is you can get through a lot of material really quick."

Jurgens also expressed hope that he would get the chance to return Superman's red trunks. That sounds like a perfect excuse for a time travel story to me!

This Day in History: Is Batman Still Dead?

Oh, 2010. How good we had it at the time. Booster Gold appeared regularly in his own title, Justice League: Generation Lost, and Time Masters: Vanishing Point, the first issue of which was released 4 years ago today.

Four years later, we still don't know who Rip Hunter's mother is. (Or for that matter who the Black Beetle was.) They say time heals all wounds, but that healing leaves some notable scars.

Time Masters > Time Lords

CaptainHeq dropped by the Boosterrific Forum last week to confirm something that Booster Gold fans already knew: Booster Gold is the best!

Congratulations Booster Gold #TimeChallenge champion

Booster beat Doctor Who in the championship bracket of the podcast Time Challenge tournament of time travelers. Says CaptainHeq:

Booster won by just a handful of votes, so I think you here can take credit for that.

Don't think we won't! Booster Gold fans are the best fans!

Booster Gold Versus Team Titans

Just for kicks, I thought that I'd compare the sales for Booster Gold's three 2010 series: Booster Gold, Justice League: Generation Lost, and Time Masters: Vanishing Point. While I knew what the the sales numbers were, it's kind of surprising to see them stacked against each other.

Booster Gold Sales Comparison 2010/2011

Booster Gold was the only ongoing series of the three and was also consistently the worst seller of the bunch. Time Masters did only marginally better, despite featuring Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern, three of DC's biggest sellers on a monthly basis. The best seller was a book comprised primarily of characters who have repeatedly proven themselves incapable of sustaining enough fan interest to maintain individual series.

I know that there were more factors at play than just characters (cost, tie-in, promotion, creative teams, etc.), but it would seem that the ensemble cast approach really works.
