Booster Gold lends a hand in this week's Human Target #7!
Ha, ha. Get it?
For the record, that's Booster's only participation in the issue, which is about the least Booster Gold we've gotten on panel since we saw just a sliver of his arm way back in Justice League #2 (1987).
If you're in the market for a little more Booster, know that this week also saw the release of reprint collections of the first halves of The Human Target and DC vs Vampires mini-series, as well as the complete reprint of another mini-series called Blue and Gold.
If you do buy one of these books, you will make Skeets happy.

DC solicitations are out for August, and by my current count, Booster boosters can expect to see our hero make an appearance in at least 10 upcoming books (including reprints). That's a lot!
As we've already covered, Booster will be in August's Tales of the Human Target one-shot as well as several Dark Crisis issues.
And while we knew that Booster would be on the cover of the first issue of DC vs. Vampires: All-Out War, we are just now learning that he'll be on the 1:25 variant edition of the second issue by James Stokoe:
If you didn't know, "1:25 variant" means that for every 25 copies of the book your Local Comic Shop orders with the standard or regular variant covers, they'll get exactly one of those. The general rule of thumb in comic collecting is that you should generally expect to "pay the ratio" for these sorts of incentive variant covers: you pay approximately $25 for 1 copy at your LCS. In today's market, that's like, 5 gallons of gas!
These 1:25 covers will obviously be in limited supply, so if you want this (or any incentive variant — so named because the publisher is using it to create an incentive to buyers to purchase more copies than they might be otherwise initially inclined to order), I recommend you negotiate with your LCS ahead of time to try and strike a deal that will be worthwhile to both of you.
On the other hand, the collected edition of Blue and Gold is due on September 27 for a comparatively meager $19.99. And while I'm sure you already have all the individual issues, won't it be nice to have them all bound under one cover?
You can find all the August solicitations at GamesRadar.com. Spend wisely, Booster boosters.

If you are a Booster Gold fan — and considering that you're reading Boosterrific.com, you probably are — stop for a minute to consider that the character's creator, Dan Jurgens, has materially contributed to Booster's development for the past 37 years and counting! That's a spectacular run and a lot of good comics. Thanks, Dan!
Which brings us to the end of Jurgen's latest set of adventures with his creation: Blue and Gold #8, hitting the shelves of your Local Comic Shop this week!
If you're eager for a look at the first few pages, AIPT.com has a preview, but you'll have to read the whole book to find out who the Black Beetle really is!
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy!
(Sneak peek courtesy longtime Booster booster Chris Aguinaldo, who traveled forward in time to get his hands on a copy early but *still* won't tell me who Black Beetle is!)

If you're a regular reader of this blog, that means you're a Booster Gold fan and probably already aware of Russ Burlingame's online "Gold Exchange" columns recently collected into a book (now available on Amazon.com).
Well, considering that Booster Gold made his Arrowverse television debut last month, Burlingame has decided that the time is ripe for another book, this one specifically for CW fans who don't yet know much about The Greatest Hero They'd Never Previously Heard Of.
From Burlingame's announcement at getrevue.com
By coincidence, just days after The Gold Exchange paperback became a reality, The CW revealed that Donald Faison was set to play a new time-traveling hero on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and the description...well, it sounded a lot like Booster.
I quickly realized that fans of the show would want to know more about the character — after all, this was the first major DC character added to the series in years, and in that time, the show had taken on a wildly different personality of its own.
So tonight, as the world gets to see Booster Gold come to live-action for only the second time on TV, I'm announcing A Legend in His Own Time: The Fast-Forward Guide to the Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of. Available as a paperback and ebook in July, A Legend In His Own Time is a condensed and annotated version of The Gold Exchange, trimming much of what the TV audience would consider the fat and providing some additional context for Booster and his history.
I've recruited Booster Gold superfan Kevin Allen to help wrangle the 600 or so pages of total Booster content I have down to something that can be quickly and inexpensively distributed, so fans can breeze through it before Legends hopefully returns in the fall.
Burlingame is already taking pre-orders for the book on JosieBook.com. Can any Booster Gold library really be complete without it?
P.S. — While we're on the subject of Burlingame's personal cottage industry of writing Booster Gold companions, we should also touch on the Gold Exchange special edition hardcover he announced last September. That book still hasn't shipped, but only for the very good reason that Russ has been waiting for Blue and Gold to end its 8-issue run so he can include interviews about it — and the reveal of the Black Beetle's identity — as well. I think we can all agree that's worth waiting for.
