Hey, DC, as someone who bought your product throughout the 1990s, let me say that I think you've forgotten the lessons we learned during the Dark Age of Comics, namely, "Thou Shalt Not Get Carried Away With Variant Covers."
This week alone, you're releasing 18 distinct books with at least 73 different covers! I love comics, but that's too many.
Booster Gold appears on exactly 1 of those covers, the 1:25 Filya Bratukhin retailer incentive card stock variant (Cover C) of DC Vs. Vampires #12.
I haven't seen all the interior pages (other than what is visible in the preview at AIPTComics.com), but is that Booster's New 52 costume? Do these damn vampires spill over into other alternate Earths? Please, no. Just no.
Elsewhere on this week's comic rack, Booster will also be found within the collected edition of Superman Red & Blue (reprinting his appearance in issue #3), Nightwing Volume 2: Get Grayson (reprinting Nightwing #88) and the second printing of Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special (reprinting, um, Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special).
Buy some (reprinted) comics and make Skeets happy.

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.

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!

No, Booster. We shouldn't.
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.
Oh, well. I suppose both rhyme and reason are the first things to go in a vampire apocalypse.

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.
