I've had my eye on this week's New Champion of Shazam #4 for months, but that doesn't have anything to do with Booster Gold. I just love me some Doc Shaner art (and Hoppy, The Marvel Bunny!).
I've also had my eye on this week's Nightwing #100. I also love me some Bruno Redondo art... and I especially love Bruno Redondo art with Booster Gold in it!
In a delightful twist, that's the issue's "Cover A," which means it is probably the most common* and easiest to acquire cover for this landmark issue. Which is a good thing, as there are at least 11 other covers of varying rarity. Whew!
*These days, DC allows retailers to order their choice of most non-incentive covers, which means there is no longer such a thing as a "standard" cover. Everything is a variant. And just because a cover has been designated as Cover A, that doesn't necessarily mean that retailers order more of those than, say, Cover B (or C or D...). So estimating the rarity (and related value) of any given cover is harder than ever. But since the laws of supply and demand still hold, the most valuable cover will usually be the most desired one, and who wouldn't want the cover with Booster Gold on it?
Buy this comic for its cover and make Skeets happy!

Once again, I don't know if we'll be seeing Booster Gold in any of this week's books, but I can say for certain that he's on one.
To be specific, he's on the 1:25 retailer incentive (Cover C) of Human Target #10 by Jeff Spokse
I'm not going to pay extra for it — I already spend too much money on comic books (and eveything else!) to chase these increasingly common incentive variants, DC — but I do like it.
Meanwhile, I have other things going on this week that require extra attention, so if anyone does spot Booster Gold (in, say, Lazarus Planet Alpha or anywhere else), I'd appreciate it if you'd report it in the comments, please.
You're the best, Booster boosters!

It doesn't look like Booster Gold appears in any new books this week, but if you decide to visit your Local Comic Shop anyway, you might want to check the recent issues rack for Batman: Urban Legends #22.
It came out last month, and Logan Peterson only recently informed me that he found Booster Gold making this two-panel cameo within:
Ok, so that's not Booster Gold himself but a statue of Booster Gold promoting slot machines in Bludhaven's Lunar Crown Casino — which is a really good thing for Booster given that Nightwing breaks its leg!.
It's not clear whether Booster has licensed his likeness to the casino or the slot machines themselves. In either case, I sure hope they have superhero insurance.
Thanks for the spot, Logan. I've got another, much older Booster appearance by Brandon to spotlight soon. In the meanwhile, keep your eyes peeled for more Booster Gold in 2023, everybody!

Hey, DC, as someone who bought your product throughout the 1990s, let me say that I think you've forgotten the lessons we learned during the Dark Age of Comics, namely, "Thou Shalt Not Get Carried Away With Variant Covers."
This week alone, you're releasing 18 distinct books with at least 73 different covers! I love comics, but that's too many.
Booster Gold appears on exactly 1 of those covers, the 1:25 Filya Bratukhin retailer incentive card stock variant (Cover C) of DC Vs. Vampires #12.
I haven't seen all the interior pages (other than what is visible in the preview at AIPTComics.com), but is that Booster's New 52 costume? Do these damn vampires spill over into other alternate Earths? Please, no. Just no.
Elsewhere on this week's comic rack, Booster will also be found within the collected edition of Superman Red & Blue (reprinting his appearance in issue #3), Nightwing Volume 2: Get Grayson (reprinting Nightwing #88) and the second printing of Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special (reprinting, um, Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special).
Buy some (reprinted) comics and make Skeets happy.

As we learned in last week's Dark Crisis: The Big Bang, the DC Vampire-verse of DC Vs. Vampires is now officially Earth-63.
Judging by the events of that mini-series, it doesn't look like the remaining human heroes have much of a chance of surviving it. It's doubtful that Earth-63 will have a Booster Gold for much longer, so enjoy him while he lasts in this week's DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War #6, the series' final issue.
If you're so inclined, a preview of the issue is available at AIPTComics.com.
And if you do visit AIPTComics.com, you might want to take a peek at their preview of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, the final issue of that mini-series. Booster Gold is in that, too. How big a part will it be considering that he, um, got hurt in issue #6? There's only one way to find out.
Buy a comic or two and make Skeets happy.
