All the King's Horses and All the King's Men
Flash's so-called "one minute war" has been rolling along for months, and in last week's The Flash #795, we finally got another appearance by the Gold Beetle (last seen in January's The Flash: One Minute War Special).
"The One-Minute War, Part Six: Give Me Liberty"; written by Jeremy Adams; art by Roger Cruz, George Kambadais, Fernando Pasarin, and many more
Gold Beetle is in only a few panels in this issue, most of which are pretty spoiler-y. What I *can* say is that despite multiple Multiversal reboots, it seems that DC just can't let Heroes in Crisis go.
We'll have to pay attention to future issues for more information.
Thanks to Rob Snow for keeping tabs on Gold Beetle for us.

Aren't You a Little Short for a Stormtrooper?
As Rob Snow recently pointed out to me, January's Flash: One Minute War Special has a Very Special Guest Star:
"Chapter Four: Future"; written by Jeremy Adams; art by George Kambadais, Matt Herms, Rob Leigh
Gold Beetle's sidekick robot used to be called Skeets (presumably *our* Skeets), but here is renamed Beets. I guess it makes sense that if Gold Beetle combines the legacy of both Booster Gold and Blue Beetle then her robot companion should be an amalgam of Skeets and Buggles (introduced in Blue and Gold #3, half a year after Gold Beetle's debut in Future State: Suicide Squad #1).
We're still waiting on an adventure teaming Gold Beetle up with her ancestors, but I'm sure we're getting closer every day.

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!

I hope everyone has awesome Labor Day plans, so I'll keep this brief.
Booster Gold may or may not be in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #4 this week. He's not in the preview at aiptcomics.com. He wasn't in issue #2,
so maybe Booster is taking the even-numbered issues off.
UPDATE 2022-09-06: Nope, he's in there, smiling away in a one-panel cameo appearance on page 6.
Booster probably isn't in Flashpoint Beyond #5 this week, but Rip Hunter's pre-Flashpoint Time Masters definitely are, as is Rip Hunter's secret time laboratory and future-teasing chalkboard. All of those things are visible in the preview at aiptcomics.com, which also seems to provide some spoilers to the ending of Dark Crisis, so beware.
Booster is almost guaranteed not to be in New Champion of Shazam #2, but I recommend you take a look at it anyway. I bought the first issue last month, and I loved it. What can I say? I'm a sucker for Hoppy the Marvel Bunny, especially when drawn by Doc Shaner. Some comics can be good even without Booster Gold.
Thank you for your consideration. I now return you to your regular scheduled holiday.

New Release: DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War 2
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.)
Anyway, DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War #2 is at your Local Comic Shop now. Booster Gold is definitely in it, as you can see in the preview at AIPT.com.
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!
Buy a Booster Gold comic and make Skeets happy.
