Once upon a time, producing a weekly title was thought to be nearly impossible. Action Comics Weekly was considered a failure in 1988, not because of low sales, but because of the difficulty of production demands. Nearly two decades and one information super-highway later, DC would return to the concept with 52 with far more success. Some credit the talent assembled to work on the book, but we all know the real reason: Booster Gold.
Recognizing the cash cow of 52, DC has followed with Countdown, Trinity, DC Universe: Legends, and Brightest Day. After a break for the implementation of the "New 52" — which maybe needs to consider dropping the "new" considering its advancing age — and it's taken a few years for DC to return to this concept. But DC is back with a bang! In addition to Batman: Eternal — out today — DC is launching Futures End and a third weekly title to be named later.
If that sounds like a lot of work, that's because it is. And it's also probably bad news for Booster Gold fans. Back in February, Dan DiDio implied to Vanetta Rogers of Newsarama.com that these weekly books will count as 4 books each in DC's total line-up. DC may have abandoned its limit of 52 series, but that still means that these 3 weekly series will count as 12 titles. Therefore, so long as Batman is eternal, there will be less room for other characters of the DC pantheon to take their place in the limelight.
Certainly the spoilers for Futures End #0 released at BleedingCool.com yesterday seem to confirm that Booster won't be a star in that title. If Booster Gold is ever going to return to action in the New DC Universe, it's looking more and more like he's going to have to accept playing a supporting role to Batman.

Many of you have probably read yesterday's Vanetta Rogers interview of Jeff Lemire over at Newsarama.com. If you missed it, here are the important bits (so far as fans of Booster Gold are concerned):
- Jeff Lemire thinks Booster Gold is Canadian. (He's wrong.)
- Dan Jurgens does not. (He's right.)
- Animal Man/Green Arrow are the new Blue Beetle/Booster Gold . (Because Beetle and Booster were busy?)
- Booster Gold will absolutely NOT be appearing in his Justice League United series. (Darn.)
So, no reason to buy any issues of Justice League United, then. Thanks for that, guys. I'll be saving my money for Future's End, where there's still the chance to see my hero return to action.
You can read the full interview here. Thanks to ctalbot2085 for giving us the link in the Boosterrific Forum.

There hasn't been a lot of Booster Gold news lately, but that hasn't stopped Vaneta Rogers from sifting through the bits and pieces we've heard to guess where we'll see our favorite hero reappear. She posts her theory in her article, "'Time' for Booster Gold's Return? We Read the Signs from DC." Part of that theory hinges on the return of Ted Kord:
After a passing reference to a company called "Kord Omniversal" at the start of Forever Evil, Geoff Johns finally announced here on Newsarama earlier this month that the end of Forever Evil in April would bring the first New 52 appearance of Ted Kord. And he'll play a role in Justice League post-Forever Evil.
So why does the promise of one character's introduction lead to thoughts of another?
Fans of Booster Gold call it "the Blue and the Gold" — the magical, oft-pairing of Booster and his former Justice League International teammate, Ted Kord. The two characters have a friendship that inspires loving laughter from their die-hard fans, and we guarantee that a reunion between the two characters would inspire fist-pumping — and sobbing — among DC fans worldwide.
If you followed those links, you saw that she links to this site as "fans of Booster Gold." That we are! Thanks, Vaneta!
Those three paragraphs are the most important (because they link here!) but if you want to know where Rogers thinks we'll see Booster next, you'll need to read her full article online at Newsarama.com.

The final issue of Forever Evil comes out in April. April is three months away. Is there any chance we'll see a particular golden hero in that book?
Last week's poll question: When do you think we will see Booster Gold reappear in a DC comic book? (52 votes)
By now you've no doubt heard that Ted Kord is coming to the DCnU in Future's End #7 (as Vaneta Rogers reported at Newsarama.com last week). If Ted Kord is coming, could Booster Gold be far behind?

A few days ago, Booster booster CDN pointed out in the Boosterrific Forum that Vaneta Rogers at Newsarama.com had included Booster Gold in an article regarding speculating on the upcoming "Trinity War" event.
With Booster being one of Johns' favorite characters (he launched the character's most recent solo title), and the Booster of the future knowing so much about the Justice League, the chances are good that the man in gold will show up at some point. And when Booster's around, heroics ensue.
Given such a long period of inactivity for Booster Gold following his disappearance in Justice League International Annual last year, there sure seems to be a lot of people talking about our hero these days. That's some good news indeed!
