Booster booster Cort dropped by Wednesday's post with a Boosterrific comic appearance that no one noticed last week in Batman/Superman #7.
On the fifth page of that issue, among six panels showcasing Batman and Superman palling around and stopping super-crime, this happened:
The first thing I thought when I saw that was "Magog is still alive?" I'd thought he died, but I temporarily forgot that no one ever dies in the DC Universe, especially since the entire universe has been rebooted at least three times since 2011's Justice League: Generation Lost #13. *sigh*
The second thing I thought was "Maybe Booster Gold should be doing a better job keeping tabs on Skeets." It seems almost every time we see Skeets without Booster, someone is trying to take it apart to get their hands on its knowledge of the future. (For examples, see the Linear Man in Adventure Comics #476 or Mr. Mind in 52 Week 51.) Stranger danger, Skeets!
Although, come to think of it, Doctor Shocker reprogrammed Skeets remotely in Booster Gold #11 while Booster Gold was standing just feet away. I guess that's one lesson Batman could learn from Booster. If you have a robot sidekick, you'll still go through them just as fast, but at least you don't have to keep redesigning their costumes.
Thanks for that spot, Cort.

I'm reminding you to visit to your Local Comic Shop today, because I know you're going to want to get your hands on Harley Quinn #71 with Booster Gold (and Skeets!) on the cover.
What do you think about that old-school Booster Gold logo? I like it, 'natch.
BleedingCool.com has the preview. Your LCS has the issue.
And while you're there, consider grabbing a copy of Flash #750. Logan Peterson has gotten an early look and says Booster makes an appearance there, too. Thanks, Logan.
Buy these issues and make Skeets happy!

Here's something we don't see often enough: Skeets' solo fan art!

It looks like the only place you'll be seeing Booster Gold in your Local Comic Shop this week is in the softcover release of Injustice 2 Volume 6 trade. But that's a reprint of a hardcover which reprinted comics that were themselves reprints of digital-first content. So you've probably already got it, right?
Meanwhile, after all the rumors about Booster coming to TV, if you're wondering what a new live-action Booster Gold might look like, maybe it looks like this piece of fan art.
That's by Hal Laren as found on ArtStation.com. I especially like the highly rendered Justice League Unlimited Skeets.
Up, up, and away, boys.

I don't read Batman, so I missed it when Batman #72 came out back in June and finally answered a question we had about Batman #50.
You remember Batman #50, right? That's the one that was supposed to end with a wedding, but instead ended with Bane standing around with his pals. And Skeets.

What was Skeets doing in a room full of villains? According to Batman #72, he was just another discarded tool.

The "you" in the above text is Bane. So it's really Bane's fault that Booster Gold was a total idiot in Batman #45. I guess.
So Bane is so smart he knew how Booster's meddling with history would ruin the world in exactly the way that he needed it to? And he knew that Booster would go out of his way to tell Batman what he experienced in the pocket universe that his idiocy created?
And while we're on the topic, if Skeets' only purpose was to depress Bruce Wayne, why did Bane bother to recover Skeets after Batman #47?
Guh. Whatever, Tom King. Whatever.
