New Release: Nightwing 100

I've had my eye on this week's New Champion of Shazam #4 for months, but that doesn't have anything to do with Booster Gold. I just love me some Doc Shaner art (and Hoppy, The Marvel Bunny!).

I've also had my eye on this week's Nightwing #100. I also love me some Bruno Redondo art... and I especially love Bruno Redondo art with Booster Gold in it!

In a delightful twist, that's the issue's "Cover A," which means it is probably the most common* and easiest to acquire cover for this landmark issue. Which is a good thing, as there are at least 11 other covers of varying rarity. Whew!

*These days, DC allows retailers to order their choice of most non-incentive covers, which means there is no longer such a thing as a "standard" cover. Everything is a variant. And just because a cover has been designated as Cover A, that doesn't necessarily mean that retailers order more of those than, say, Cover B (or C or D...). So estimating the rarity (and related value) of any given cover is harder than ever. But since the laws of supply and demand still hold, the most valuable cover will usually be the most desired one, and who wouldn't want the cover with Booster Gold on it?

Buy this comic for its cover and make Skeets happy!

New Release: Human Target 10

Once again, I don't know if we'll be seeing Booster Gold in any of this week's books, but I can say for certain that he's on one.

To be specific, he's on the 1:25 retailer incentive (Cover C) of Human Target #10 by Jeff Spokse

I'm not going to pay extra for it — I already spend too much money on comic books (and eveything else!) to chase these increasingly common incentive variants, DC — but I do like it.

Meanwhile, I have other things going on this week that require extra attention, so if anyone does spot Booster Gold (in, say, Lazarus Planet Alpha or anywhere else), I'd appreciate it if you'd report it in the comments, please.

You're the best, Booster boosters!

New Release: DC Vs. Vampires 12 Cover C

Hey, DC, as someone who bought your product throughout the 1990s, let me say that I think you've forgotten the lessons we learned during the Dark Age of Comics, namely, "Thou Shalt Not Get Carried Away With Variant Covers."

This week alone, you're releasing 18 distinct books with at least 73 different covers! I love comics, but that's too many.

Booster Gold appears on exactly 1 of those covers, the 1:25 Filya Bratukhin retailer incentive card stock variant (Cover C) of DC Vs. Vampires #12.

I haven't seen all the interior pages (other than what is visible in the preview at AIPTComics.com), but is that Booster's New 52 costume? Do these damn vampires spill over into other alternate Earths? Please, no. Just no.

Elsewhere on this week's comic rack, Booster will also be found within the collected edition of Superman Red & Blue (reprinting his appearance in issue #3), Nightwing Volume 2: Get Grayson (reprinting Nightwing #88) and the second printing of Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special (reprinting, um, Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special).

Buy some (reprinted) comics and make Skeets happy.

New Release: DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War 5

The preview at AIPTComics.com proves that Booster Gold still lives in the pages of DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War #5. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

More interesting to me is Booster's non-appearance on the cover of The Flash #788, or, more specifically, Todd Nauck's "90s Rewind" cardstock cover:

Obviously, those kids in the pool aren't really Blue and Gold, but they sure are dressing the part. Check out their deck art!

Ok, so that's not a very "90s" Skeets, but any Skeets is always better than none.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have the urge to go re-watch Gleaming the Cube.

UPDATE 2022-11-16: Booster also makes a cameo appearance in this week's Dark Crisis: Young Justice #6!

New Releases: Dark Crisis 6 and More!

When you visit your Local Comic Shop this week, you'll see a lot of Booster Gold!

Not only is Booster inside Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 (as visible in the preview at AIPTComics.com), he's also on the cover:

As is increasingly the case at DC, there are several covers to this issue. Officially, that one is being called the "Cvr A Daniel Sampere & Alejandro Sanchez" Cover. You may have seen it recently in the DC house ad promoting this month's Dark Crisis tie-in issues.

Speaking of multiple covers, Booster is also appearing on several covers of Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1:

Officially the "Cvr A Dan Jurgens & Brett Breeding Gatefold Cover"

© DC Comics
Officially the "Cvr C Ivan Reis & Danny Miki Funeral for a Friend Variant"

You may have seen the wraparound cover in recent DC Nation columns promoting this month's "90's Rewind" tie-in issues. It's so nice, it's also being reused on the Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1 "Cvr F Memorial Dan Jurgens & Brett Breeding Bleeding Bag Premium Polybag Variant"!

How many of these comics are you going to buy to make Skeets happy?
