It's a big month at Boosterrific.com for Doomsday fans! (Or fans of Dead Superman. Either way.)
We all know that Booster Gold was on multiple covers of Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1 a few weeks back. (And, as it happens, he'll be on the cover of a few more when the second printings arrive after Christmas.)
Whether or not the 30th Anniversary Special was the inspiration, Booster booster J got to reading other Doomsday stories and discovered the following Booster appearance was missing from the Boosterrific.com database:
That's from Superman's nightmare sequence at the beginning of Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey #1. I'm sure I've seen that before, but somehow I failed to track it. Oops. (I wonder if I decided once upon a time that it didn't count because it's not really Booster Gold? Oh, well. Whatever. Never mind.) Fixed now.
And, as it happens, that's not the only Doomsday-related Booster appearance that's been added to the database this week. The cover to Justice League America #69 showed up in this week's Superman: Kal-El Returns Special #1:
Superman and Doomsday (and Booster Gold) together forever!
Thanks to J for setting me straight.

I spotted an unexpected Booster Gold appearance in CBR.com's preview of this week's Dark Crisis: The Dark Army one-shot:
Just in case you don't have your magnifying glass handy, here's a closer look.
That's just the first of two pages in the preview with Booster in it! Could there be more? Only one way to find out.
Buy this comic and make Skeets happy.

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!

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"
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?

If you're looking for Booster Gold in the new releases coming to your Local Comic Shop this week, look no further than the display case holding the rare covers!
This is the "1:25 variant cover by Ryan Sook" for Human Target #8:
Oddly, that cover omits the issue's Very Special Guest Star, Rocket Red, visible in the preview at AIPTComics.com. Which Rocket Red? I'm really not sure.
Early issues of this series (and the cover of the hardback collection) included an image of original JLI-era Dimiti Pushkin (Rocket Red 4), and I might have expected Gavril Ivanovich (Rocket Red 07) who was a member of the New 52 JLI. But the armor of the Rocket Red in the preview looks like that of Maks Chazov (Rocket Red 01), who was a member of the pre-Flashpoint Checkmate.
So which one is under that mask? Just one more mystery for the Human Target to solve before he finally dies.
UPDATE 2022-10-25: Though it is never explicit, clues in the issue imply that the man wearing the Rocket Red 01 armor is Dimiti Pushkin. So is this an error of the writer (who didn't make it clear which Rocket Red it was supposed to be), the artist (who didn't verify which Rocket Red he was supposed to be drawing), or the editor (who didn't pay enough attention to which suit it should have been)... or is this an intentionally revisionist history of the Rocket Reds by one or more of the above?
Anyway, Booster's not in this book. So whatever.
