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!
Buy a Booster Gold comic and make Skeets happy.

OG Booster booster Shawn Baston recently notified me that he had spotted Booster Gold someplace I'd never thought to look: in the pages of DC Super-Pets Character Encyclopedia (Picture Window Books, 2013)!
written by Steve Korte, illustrated by Art Baltazar
Skeets... classified as a pet? I don't think he'd like that.
I've updated the Other Media > Books section of the site with this and a few other books that Shawn was able to confirm, but he suggested still others that *might* have Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearances that we have not been able to confirm. I thought I'd put the word out to see if any of Booster's other loyal fans could provide any additional insights.
All of the following were published by DK. Links are to the titles on Amazon.com for reference.
DC Comics Cover Art (2020)
If anyone can confirm or definitively rule out a Booster Gold (or Skeets!) appearance in any of those — or any other books that may not be listed on Boosterrific.com, please drop a note in the comments below.
UPDATE: Logan Peterson has confirmed Booster's inclusion in DC Comics Cover Art, The DC Book, and DC Comics Year By Year. Thanks, Logan!
UPDATE February 20: J adds that Booster Gold is name-dropped in the Kingdom Come novelization that I didn't have in the books section, so I've added that, too. Thanks, J!

Another thing spotted this week on Twitter:
I'd say that was supposed to be Booster Gold, Skeets, Jaime Reyes, and Khaji Da (together known as the Blue Beetle), but the tweet explicitly says there are only two "characters" there, so I must be wrong.
Looking at dcheroesandvillains.com, I see that DC Heroes & Villains is a puzzle RPG game (like Puzzle Quest?) being created by JamCity and Ludia for mobile devices that will be released... sometime in the future. Cool. That means I haven't missed anything yet.
I'll have to start paying attention to its progress. Maybe one of these days, they'll finally tell me who those two guys are.
Thanks to Logan Peterson for alerting me that this might interest Booster boosters.

Leave it to Booster Gold to crash Wonder Woman's 80th anniversary party!
From this week's Wonder Woman 80-Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular:
Now that is a great cameo in a tribute book! Especially considering that Booster and Wondy have traditionally had something of a frosty relationship because, well, she's a wonder and he's a bit of a cad.
For example, here is their meeting in 1992's Justice League America Annual #6:
Thanks to Logan Peterson for calling Wonder Woman 80-Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular to our attention. (You're a great salesman, Logan. My Local Comic Shop owes you a commission!)

This week DC released Bizarro Comics: The Deluxe Edition, which is a collection of two earlier collections, Bizaro Comics and Bizarro World. Booster Gold makes a very brief cameo in the former:
Granted, that panel might not be significant enough to encourage you to buy a $50 book, but it's not the smallest Booster Gold appearance this week. That honor belongs to Teen Titans Academy #5:
No, he's not Red X. (At least, I don't think so.) Look under the "W" on the bulletin board. That golden hair couldn't possibly belong to anyone else!
To prove I'm not crazy (about this), here's the better look at the bulletin board we got in last month's previous issue:
Thanks to Logan for bringing that panel to our attention. I can't imagine a Booster cameo getting much smaller than that.
For the record, that's not the only Booster in Teen Titans Academy #5. Blue and Gold appear twice in this house ads, once in the Infinite Frontier promotion that's now on it's third week, and once in Director Bones' newest Multiversal Monitor.
These house ads appear in all of this week's books. You might think it's silly to buy comics just for the ads, but a Booster booster's gotta do what a Booster booster's gotta do.
