Did I Miss Something?

Umm…ya…so DC’s The Sauce Source has posted the final cover to Booster Gold #23 after it was revealed last night on G4. It looks like Fresh Ink host and fellow comic aficionado Blair Butler will be gracing it as Booster Gold’s #1 fan. Why is this exactly happening? Now, don’t get me wrong, I think it’s kinda cool Blair will be on the cover but I just don’t get it. Though I guess anytime this sexist industry can reach out and embrace the fangirl community in some way it should be seen as a good thing. If this was all a marketing ploy by DC to get me to start picking up Booster Gold again I do have to say that it worked.

Unless it’s all a joke for the sake of the San Diego-Con.

    Wow, that’s cheesy.

    Usually photo celebrity endorsements go in ads, not taking up the whole cover of a comic.

    What’s next, a picture of Kevin Smith giving a thumbs-up as the cover of Daredevil?

    attack of the show is pretty popular cant be such a bad thing
    i agree with hammy is pretty weird and the kevin smith dd thing is funny but if she was in an ad they would probably have to pay her
    booster gold is a character i dislike but the book is pretty good and i cant recommend geoff johnsfirst 12 issue run strong enough someone gave me the trae and it blew me away how good it was

    J, I heard you were meant to be on the cover on Joeb’s next Hulk!

    The next question would be why doesn’t DC do this for each of their books that come out a certain month. Where a different celebrity fan graces a cover of their favorite comic wearing a t-shirt of the character.

  6. Hammy McHamslice says:

    They could do a special month where all of the DC covers are pictures of Ryan Reynolds in the costume of each hero.

    This is perfect Booster Gold fodder IMHO. It’s just the thing that Booster would want.
    I’ve been getting the comics the last couple of months, not so much for Booster but take a look at the second story.
    Bring back the Blue Beetle.

    Huh…they didn’t put a “cleavage window” in her tshirt!

    ahh! This BG cover really brings me back l.m reminded of many moons ago, when Namor..while gracing one of his own covers, was flying over a photographed N.Y.. My feeling with that cover then is the same as my feeling 4 this cover now, and that is; who ever thought this bs up….should be seriously pimp slapped!

    Usually women are pointing at their eyes for rude guys to look at them in the face, but not this lady…
