As you can see from the preview at AIPTComics.com, Booster Gold and his Justice League International pals are definitely in this week's Blue Beetle #2 to support their oft-injured friend, Ted Kord.
You don't need me to tell you that buying this issue will make Skeets happy.

Some people take Labor Day off, but not me, not when I've got to tell you about Booster Gold coming to your Local Comic Shop this week!
As you can see in the issue preview at AIPTComics.com, Booster gets a cameo appearance on the very first page of Blue Beetle #1!
I'm pretty sure that's a "Bwah-Ha-Ha" being cut off by the narrative box in that panel.
And if one panel isn't enough homage to Kevin Maguire's famous Justice League #1 cover, remember that there's also a 1:25 Justice League #1-inspired variant cover to this week's Fire and Ice: Welcome to Smallville drawn by... Kevin Maguire:
(For the record, neither Booster Gold nor Fire nor Ice appear on the original cover to Justice League #1, which wouldn't be re-titled Justice League International until issue #7. Booster joined the team in issue #4, and Fire and Ice joined in Justice League International #14. All three are on the updated roster cover of Justice League International #24, which was the very first book to homage the cover to issue #1. It is no coincidence that Issues #1 and #24 also bookend artist Maguire's run on the series.)
Buy one or both of those issues and make Skeets happy!

While Booster Gold has had many adventures without his robot sidekick since the pair debuted in 1985's Booster Gold #1, the reverse is not true. Skeets has rarely wandered far from Booster's side.
But this week, Skeets will be on the cover of Batman Superman: World's Finest #17 with nary a Booster Gold in sight!
The issue preview at AIPTComics.com doesn't give any indication what role (if any) Skeets (or Booster) will play in the issue's story. Given that the scenario in preceding issues focuses on a villainous artificial intelligence taking over all the other artificial lifeforms in the DC Universe... things don't look good for our favorite sidekick.
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy!
UPDATE: As Marty notes in the comments, neither Booster nor Skeets appears inside the actual issue. Oh, well. We still got a Skeets cover.

Thanks to everyone who called my attention to the Booster Gold reference in AIPTcomics.com preview for this week's Green Lantern #2:
"No answer"? Booster's nowhere to be seen these days even by the inhabitants of the DCU!
By the way, this is the seventh volume of Green Lantern comics — the sixth to prominently feature Hal Jordan. Booster's only had two! Booster is 26 years younger than Hal (debuting in 1985 and 1959, respectively), but he's still going to need a new volume of issues every five years just to catch up.
Look on the bright side: that's a lot of adventures for readers to look forward to!

Don't let that headline mislead you; I'm not expecting to see Booster Gold in this week's The Flash #799. But as the issue preview now available at AIPTComics.com demonstrates, we will definitely be seeing Gold Beetle:
As I said a few weeks ago, I'm expecting we'll see Gold Beetle again on June 6 in The Flash's "extra-sized" final issue #800. (Don't worry, DC is restarting Flash with a whole new number one in September... because, um, the number one is cooler.)
What I was NOT expecting, and what I learned from reading the Flash #800 preview also already online at AIPTComics.com, is that the issue will feature an appearance by Booster Gold's long-lost second foe, Mindancer!
I can't wait to find out what she's been up to for the last 37 years!
