As fans of Booster Gold know, the DC Universe is an inherently unstable place where status quo (and reality itself) can change at less than a moment's notice. No one is more aware of this than Booster Gold's best friend, Ted Kord.
Ted Kord has been the Blue Beetle since 1966. He's been a member of the Justice League since 1987. He's been dead since 2005 and alive again since 2014. And he's had a sister since... December.
And she's no fan of her brother's friendship with Booster Gold.

Booster boosters will remember that Ted was ousted as CEO of Kord Industries by its board of directors in last year's Blue and Gold #2, so it shouldn't be surprising that the board turned to his sister, even if we're just now meeting her for the first time.
If I have any gripes, it's that Ted has traditionally kept his participation as Blue Beetle a secret from the general public and other Kord Industries employees, but it makes sense he'd share his secret with his sister. I mean, Booster eventually told his secrets to his own sister, Michelle.
Wait. Is Victoria Ted's twin? That would be weird, right?
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Starfire have already appeared in issues of Blue Beetle: Graduation Day. Will we see Booster in future issues? Only Victoria Kord knows for sure.

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.

The bad news is that Booster Gold is nowhere to be seen in this week's installment of DC's twenty-one-parts-and-counting Dark Crisis saga, Dark Crisis: War Zone.
The issue is an anthology of vignettes all taking place during the melee that's been raging in front of the Hall of Justice for two months now. We know Booster is in that fight, but somehow he's just never captured on panel herein.
The good news is that we can confirm our hero is still hard at work saving innocent lives because he gets a name drop on the very first page:

A wise man once said, "Whenever Booster's not on panel, all the other characters should be asking 'Where's Booster?'" This is close enough.

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.

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!
