It doesn't look like Booster Gold appears in any new books this week, but if you decide to visit your Local Comic Shop anyway, you might want to check the recent issues rack for Batman: Urban Legends #22.
It came out last month, and Logan Peterson only recently informed me that he found Booster Gold making this two-panel cameo within:
Ok, so that's not Booster Gold himself but a statue of Booster Gold promoting slot machines in Bludhaven's Lunar Crown Casino — which is a really good thing for Booster given that Nightwing breaks its leg!.
It's not clear whether Booster has licensed his likeness to the casino or the slot machines themselves. In either case, I sure hope they have superhero insurance.
Thanks for the spot, Logan. I've got another, much older Booster appearance by Brandon to spotlight soon. In the meanwhile, keep your eyes peeled for more Booster Gold in 2023, everybody!

I figured if we were going to see Booster Gold anywhere this week, it would be in Dark Crisis: Big Bang. After all, the whole issue is a trip through the new DC Multiverse drawn by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund.
But no. No Booster anywhere.
To be fair, that makes sense. The issue revisits the concepts of the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Booster Gold wasn't in the DC Universe then. (Flash Fact: Booster Gold was the first new character to appear on the sole Earth to survive into the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Universe!)
However, just when I was prepared to write about something else today, Booster booster Logan writes in to tell me that about a Booster Gold appearance I missed last week!
Set your eyes on this panel from Wildstorm 30th Anniversary Special #1:
You might be surprised to learn that this is the first time Booster Gold has appeared on panel with Apollo and Midnighter in mainstream continuity. Granted, Apollo and Midnighter didn't leave the Wildstorm Universe and join the mainstream DCU until the New 52, but that's still been over a decade. About time, guys!
So if you do go to your Local Comic Shop this week, be sure to check the shelves for last week's comics. Thanks, Logan!

Booster booster Logan Peterson works in a bookstore and writes in to tell us that he has spotted our hero in the new book DC Greatest Events coming soon from Stephen Wiacek and DK.
I meandered my way through and can report that Booster makes several visual appearances--mostly in group shots from events like Zero Hour and Heroes in Crisis. He is listed in the index, though, which directs one to this particular page in the Flashpoint entry:
Golly. At the time, I believed Flashpoint was nothing more than a naked cash grab before the "New 52" launch. Reading that recap description of the "16 interlinked but self-contained three-issue limited series" makes me think my original opinion was too generous.
Thanks for the heads-up, Logan. Now everybody knows what to ask for from Santa this Christmas!

When I started this website to track all adventures of the superhero Booster Gold, I didn't think I was going to have to spend so much time typing about vampires. I mean, I thought Blue and Gold had defeated the DCU's last vampire in 1989 (in the "immortal" Justice League International #25).
But who can predict the future? (Especially in the DCU. Its reboots have reboots.)
Booster's also on the cover. One of them, anyway. As noted back in May, Booster is prominently featured on the 1:25 James Stokoe retailer incentive variant cover. You might have to find that one on eBay.
But wait! There's more!
Booster booster Logan Peterson dropped me a line to say, "it looks like Booster appears in this week's Aquaman and the Flash: Voidsong #3." On page 30, to be specific.
That is not an appearance I would have spotted without assistance, Logan. Thank you!
Buy a Booster Gold comic and make Skeets happy.

Comichron.com reports that the North American comic book industry had its most profitable year ever in 2021, and it's easy to understand why. There are a lot of great comic books being published right now.
Personally, I spent over $50 at my Local Comic Shop on DC Comics alone this week. My favorite right now is Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo's Nightwing which is so well written and illustrated that it's almost a crime *not* to buy it.
Restricting the conversation to books that are out this week, I should mention that despite my misgivings about drinking from the well of Crisis on Infinite Earths one too many times, I'm still looking forward to where Dark Crisis is headed. Sadly, Booster Gold doesn't appear in this week's Issue 2, but I'm sure he'll be back soon. We already know he's on the alternate cover for next month's issue 3 due in stores on August 2.
If you didn't already pick up the first and last issues of the Justice League Unlimited mini-series for Booster's small role in that, be aware that the entire series has now been collected into a single volume.
Also available this week is DC Vs. Vampires #7. Booster Gold's role in this story is limited to the bottom corner of the full-page splash panel on page 2 (visible in the issue preview AIPTcomics.com). Booster's cameo appearance aside, I've decided this title is very, very definitely not for me, so that's all I'm going to say about it here.
Skeets likes it when you buy books with Booster Gold in them, but you do you. There are too many good options out there these days to waste time, money, and emotional energy on the ones you don't like.
UPDATE 2022-07-06: Logan writes in to point out that Booster also gets a tiny cameo in this week's Flashpoint Beyond #3. Thanks, Logan!
