Booster Gold lends a hand in this week's Human Target #7!
Ha, ha. Get it?
For the record, that's Booster's only participation in the issue, which is about the least Booster Gold we've gotten on panel since we saw just a sliver of his arm way back in Justice League #2 (1987).
If you're in the market for a little more Booster, know that this week also saw the release of reprint collections of the first halves of The Human Target and DC vs Vampires mini-series, as well as the complete reprint of another mini-series called Blue and Gold.
If you do buy one of these books, you will make Skeets happy.

And that's all I'm going to say about that.

When I started this website to track all adventures of the superhero Booster Gold, I didn't think I was going to have to spend so much time typing about vampires. I mean, I thought Blue and Gold had defeated the DCU's last vampire in 1989 (in the "immortal" Justice League International #25).
But who can predict the future? (Especially in the DCU. Its reboots have reboots.)
Booster's also on the cover. One of them, anyway. As noted back in May, Booster is prominently featured on the 1:25 James Stokoe retailer incentive variant cover. You might have to find that one on eBay.
But wait! There's more!
Booster booster Logan Peterson dropped me a line to say, "it looks like Booster appears in this week’s Aquaman and the Flash: Voidsong #3." On page 30, to be specific.
That is not an appearance I would have spotted without assistance, Logan. Thank you!

If you've bought a physical copy of a DC Comic published in the last two weeks, you've probably seen this:
It should also be noted that DC's latest reprint of 52, the "Omnibus Hardcover 2022 Edition," is also due out this week for a paltry $175. I was going to make fun of that price, but on second thought, maybe I should bite the bullet and buy this. My original comics are getting awfully worn out from repeated readings.

Comichron.com reports that the North American comic book industry had its most profitable year ever in 2021, and it's easy to understand why. There are a lot of great comic books being published right now.
Personally, I spent over $50 at my Local Comic Shop on DC Comics alone this week. My favorite right now is Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo's Nightwing which is so well written and illustrated that it's almost a crime *not* to buy it.
Restricting the conversation to books that are out this week, I should mention that despite my misgivings about drinking from the well of Crisis on Infinite Earths one too many times, I'm still looking forward to where Dark Crisis is headed. Sadly, Booster Gold doesn't appear in this week's Issue 2, but I'm sure he'll be back soon. We already know he's on the alternate cover for next month's issue 3 due in stores on August 2.
If you didn't already pick up the first and last issues of the Justice League Unlimited mini-series for Booster's small role in that, be aware that the entire series has now been collected into a single volume.
Also available this week is DC Vs. Vampires #7. Booster Gold's role in this story is limited to the bottom corner of the full-page splash panel on page 2 (visible in the issue preview AIPTcomics.com). Booster's cameo appearance aside, I've decided this title is very, very definitely not for me, so that's all I'm going to say about it here.
Skeets likes it when you buy books with Booster Gold in them, but you do you. There are too many good options out there these days to waste time, money, and emotional energy on the ones you don't like.
UPDATE 2022-07-06: Logan writes in to point out that Booster also gets a tiny cameo in this week's Flashpoint Beyond #3. Thanks, Logan!
