New Release: Dark Crisis: The Dark Army 1

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.

New Release: DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War 5

The preview at AIPTComics.com proves that Booster Gold still lives in the pages of DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War #5. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

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!

New Releases: Dark Crisis 6 and More!

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?

New Release: Human Target 8

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.

New Release: DC Vs. Vampires: All-Out War 4

© DC Comics

No, Booster. We shouldn't.

As you can see, sleeveless Booster Gold is front and center in the preview for this week's DC vs. Vampires: All-Out War #4 at AIPTComics.com.

Maybe in this issue, we will finally learn why Booster's costume doesn't have sleeves here. Did vampires eat them?

And for that matter, how is vampirism supposed to work in this series, anyway? It's implied to be a supernatural undead curse (because blessed holy water can kill the vampires) but it is also called an "infection" that can turn solar-battery Superman but not solar-battery Starfire.

Sigh.

Oh, well. I suppose both rhyme and reason are the first things to go in a vampire apocalypse.
