I'm back! And so is Booster Gold!
Booster booster Logan spotted our hero in the pages of today's The Other History of the DC Universe #3. It's a sight you may recognize.
Befitting its premise, The Other History of the DC Universe uses a lot of art from a lot of sources representing the history of the DC Universe. However, this panel isn't actually historical; it's allegorical. Blue Beetle, Mon-el, Darkseid, and many others weren't actually present for Superman's funeral.
This was the poster by Dan Jurgens and Brett Breeding released with Superman #75. It's meant to represent the entire DC Universe. To writer John Ridley's credit, that's how it is used in this issue.
When you head to your Local Comic Shop to pick up this cameo appearance, you may want to be aware that elsewhere, Gold Beetle is in Flash #768. Cameo appearances for everyone!
Skeets thanks you for your support.

Assuming you live in a place where your weekly comics shipments haven't been affected by blizzards or power outages or shipping delays, you'll find this at your Local Comic Shop today:
Also available today is Future State: Suicide Squad #2, which continues the adventures of Gold Beetle. Her connection to Booster is made clearer in this issue, with a brief cameo by none other than our beloved Chronal Crusader plus a significant role for Skeets in the era of DC One Million!
Buy both of them and make Skeets happy.

This is week four of DC's Future State event, and Booster Gold still hasn't appeared in any of the books.
But now Gold Beetle has.
That's cropped from the very last panel (Spoiler Alert!) of the backup story in Future State: Suicide Squad #1. The back-up feature is titled "Future State: Black Adam, Chapter One: The Beginning of the End," written by Jeremy Adams with art by Fernando Pasarin, Oclair Albert, Jeromy Cox, Wes Abbott.
The story takes place in the DC One Million era of the 853rd century, but that's about all we know about Gold Beetle so far. (I mentioned it's the last panel, right?) We can guess that If Gold Beetle appears in the 30th century in Flash #769 next month, she must be some kind of time traveler, right?
Maybe we'll find out more in Future State: Suicide Squad #2 on February 23. Meanwhile, make Skeets happy and buy this comic.

Last week, we considered the question:
Who is… Gold Beetle in Future State?
Thanks to GamesRadar.com, we now have the beginning of an answer. As we suspected, she very much looks to have something to do with Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. Perhaps their great-great-great-something granddaughter? (The 30th century is very far away.)
THE FLASH #769

After an accident pushes Wally West into the time stream, the former Kid Flash lands in the body of his onetime partner, Impulse. Now sprinting through the 30th century side by side with the mysterious (and, yeah, ridiculous) Gold Beetle, Wally must uncover what's causing the destructive explosions that keep propelling him through time and the bodies of other speedsters.
On sale April 20, $3.99 US
CARD STOCK VARIANT COVER $4.99 US
So now we know that Gold Beetle won't be appearing until *after* Future State runs its two-month course. Unless she gets a cameo appearance at the end of Future State: The Flash #2, which I suppose we'll know when that issue is released on February 2.

Over the weekend, Rob Snow wrote in to say
There was an intriguing teaser dropped on Bleeding Cool about Future States Gold Beetle.
Nothing concrete, but I like where your head is, Rob.
The teaser Rob mentions was in the article "91 Rumours, Gossip, Teases About DC Comics Future State for 2021." Number 90 on that list is
Who is… Gold Beetle in Future State?
I wish I knew. DC Comics has had Blue Beetles, Red Beetles, and Black Beetles, so there's no reason to think that Gold Beetle has anything to do with Booster Gold. But it might.
At this point, I should point out that there is no evidence in any of DC's promotional material to date that this Gold Beetle even exists (or will exist), much less that it has anything to do with the future of everyone's favorite comedic crime-fighting team. Adjust your hopes for a previously unannounced Booster Gold appearance in any of the next two months' worth of DC comics accordingly.
Booster's next know appearance is on the cover of Infinite Frontier in March. If anyone spots our hero in any of the Future State comics before then, please let us know.
UPDATE 2021-01-15: Mystery solved! Booster booster Shawn Baston notes that Gold Beetle is on the cover of April's Flash #769. More on that later.
