Some events in the DC Universe are so significant, they are revisited over and over again. How many times have you seen Krypton explode? Or Martha Wayne's pearls? Or the Martian Manhunter's funeral?
I mention that last one for a reason. Manhunter was the first hero to die in 2008's Final Crisis, and his funeral was seen in both Final Crisis #2 and Final Crisis: Requiem #1. And Booster Gold was there both times. (In fact, Booster Gold was seen at DC's most significant funeral of the 21st century again as recently as 2019's Harley Quinn #67. Take that, Krypton!)
Well, it's starting to look like Nightwing's memorial service for the fallen Justice League seen in Dark Crisis #1 is the latest in repeatable solemn events. That memorial service will be seen again in this week's Dark Crisis: Young Justice #1. And once again, Booster Gold is in the crowd, as you can see in the issue preview at aiptcomics.com.
Booster Gold sure must love funerals.
Buy this issue's alternate cover by Todd Nauck (with Snapper Carr in a Booster Gold t-shirt) and make Skeets happy.

Booster booster J's emails are usually in regards to the many, many typographical and grammatical errors on this site. (I'll take all the help I can get, J. Thanks!) But the message in my inbox today was to let me know that Booster Gold gets a shout-out in this week's Flashpoint Beyond #2.
And here it is, from page 2:
words by Geoff Johns, Tim Sheridan, Jeremy Adams; art by Xermanico, Romulo Fajardo Jr, Rob Leigh
For the record, the rule here at Boosterrific.com is that we track all Booster Gold comic book visual appearances but not text-only dialogue references, much less the expositional internal monologue of a murderous Dr. Batman. (Back in the day, this name drop would be inside a bubbled thought balloon!)
Therefore, Flashpoint Beyond #2 will not be added to the Boosterrific Database, and this blog post will be the only place on the site you'll see it.
If that bothers you, I recommend that you get to your Local Comic Shop and pick up your own copy of Flashpoint Beyond #2, just like I did. A compulsive collector's job is never done!

Available tomorrow at your Local Comic Shop:
Yes, that is Booster Gold on the wraparound Daniel Sampere/Alejandro Sanchez cover.
I should also mention that Booster is definitely on the inside, too. Pretty significantly, in fact.
That should be all you need to know before deciding to pick up Dark Crisis #1, but if you want (slightly) more, AIPT.com has a preview of the first five pages (with Booster appearing on two of them!).
Buy this book and make Skeets happy.

Look! Booster Gold made a surprise appearance in this week's Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes #3:
It's only a cameo appearance, but if you buy this issue, it will make Skeets happy.

I've seen tomorrow's Free Comic Book Day Dark Crisis Special Edition #0 — well, technically, according to the indicia, it's the Dark Crisis #0 FCBD Special Edition 2022 (suggesting that there will be another one in 2023?) — and I can personally attest that Booster Gold is in it.
I had previously griped about Booster's cut-and-paste inclusion in this two-page spread, but I can now attest that our hero appears in a second, more significant panel (along with some guy whose name rhymes with "glue needle"). But showing *that* panel would be spoilers, so you'll just have to take my word for it. At least until you get to your Local Comic Shop and participate in the weekend's festivities.
And while you're in your Local Comic Shop, perhaps you'll consider picking up Earth-Prime #3, which includes an unexpected Legends of Tomorrow Booster Gold story that fleshes out what Booster was up to between the scenes of the series finale, "Knocked Up, Knocked Down."
I've seen the episode and I've read the comic, and I'm *still* not sure I understand what's going on. But at least the comic hints at the relationship between Booster and the Legends of Tomorrow version of Skeets. It's complicated, but also kind of sweet. Kind of.
Get either of these books and make Skeets happy!
