The Booster Gold Nobody Knows

The big Booster Gold news from Comic-Con International is that there is no Booster Gold slated to appear in DC Comics.

Booster was discussed at the "DC All-Access Panel" on Thursday. (Panelists included Mark Buckingham, Brian Buccellato, Derek Fridolfs, Adam Hughes, Geoff Johns, Jeff Lemire, Gail Simone, and Tom Taylor.) It's interesting to see how different sources covered the same news.

First up is Zac Boone of Unleash the Fanboy:

A Booster Gold cos-player asked when he will get his title back. Answers were noncommital.

Andy Hunsacker of Crave Online expands:

A Booster Gold cosplayer asks when Booster Gold's getting his book back. They joke that he's from the future, he should already know.

The same event covered by Mark Seifert for Bleeding Cool:

When asked about the rumoured Booster Gold monthly [Geoff Johns] dodged the question and stated that he wasn't allowed to say much but to talk to Dan Didio.

From these three reports we can be sure of two things:

  1. most of the people who attend these panels report for comics websites, and
  2. DC isn't ready to admit that there is a Booster Gold comic in the works.

This doesn't necessarily discredit Bleeding Cool's earlier report in May that a third volume of Booster Gold comic was "imminent," but it doesn't help their credibility either.

As if that's not enough bad Booster news, Lucas Siegel of Newsarama also confirmed that Booster will not be appearing in "Trinity War."

Any plans for Booster Gold? [Geoff] Johns, "We love Booster, but he's not in Trinity War. There is something in Forever Evil #1 that connects to him though."

The silver lining is that Booster Gold fans can save some money and stop buying the "Trinity War" crossovers now. See, Comic-Con wasn't a total waste.
