Booster, boosted

I haven't posted any new art here in a while — though I think my gallery over at Comic Art Fans is pretty much up to date. Since I likely won't be adding any new items to the portfolio until after the holidays, I'll salt in a new piece here at SSTOL every now and again for your admiration and amusement.


You'll recall the Booster Gold sketch Dan Jurgens penciled for me at the Minnesota FallCon. A terrific drawing with life and personality to burn. Well, I hustled Booster across the continent (okay, the Postal Service hustled while I forked over the dough) to Josef Rubinstein, the legendary inker who previously worked on my Lara Croft sketch, also penciled by Dan Jurgens. Joe delivered another superb inking job, maybe even better than the Tomb Raider piece. I'll let you judge for yourselves.

It's amazing how inks can change a picture. Speaking of Booster: when's the next Formerly Known as the Justice League coming out?

Rubinstein is something, isn't he? I just love what he did with Booster's expression: He made the character completely human. It's a feat of inking I can stare at for hours.

The most recent scuttlebutt I heard about I Can't Believe It's Not the Justice League (the sequel to Formerly...) is that it's coming out in February 2005 as an installment of the series JLA: Classified.
