And this was where we thought Booster might be:
It turns out we were right. Morgenstern, who spotted Booster the first time around, has found proof in Joe Prado's text-free original inks of Ivan Reis' pencils on ComicArtFans.com. Taking a second look at where Booster Gold was thought to be hiding:
Yup, that's our guy (with a beard!).
Now, as it happens, the scene seen in this splash page only occurs in Superman's imagination, so this qualifies as an out-of-continuity appearance (just like Booster's cameo in Batman: Last Knight on Earth #2 discussed earlier this month). No need to rush out and pick up this back issue unless you obsessively buy *all* Booster Gold comics.
Personally, I bought my copy back in March on the suspicion that this *might* be a Booster Gold appearance.
Keep up the good work, Morgenstern.

DC released solicitations for June last week, and I'm sorry to say that the only Booster Gold appearance looks to be in the Injustice 2 Volume 6 hardcover collection reprinting Injustice 2 issues 31 through 36. We'll have to hope that Booster is just taking a well earned vacation after the conclusion to Heroes in Crisis and isn't being incarcerated for murder.
It remains possible that Booster will be seen in Brian Michael Bendis' Event Leviathan. Solicitation text describes it as "a mystery thriller that stretches across the DC Universe and touches every character from Batman to Superman to the Question to Talia al Ghul." That's not much to go on, but no one can deny that Booster Gold is certainly a character.
Speaking of Booster ensemble appearances, longtime Booster booster Morgenstern thinks he has spotted our hero in another recent issue of Superman written by Bendis. See this title page from Superman #9:
That's a pretty crowded picture. Here, let me zoom in.
Spot him yet? No? Let's get closer still.
Says Morgenstern: "On the Lower left, hidden by the word "HOUSE", next to Ted Kord, is someone who might be Booster Gold."
Is it? Could be. Maybe. I think we can all agree on one thing: Morgenstern has some great eyes!
Thanks, M. Maybe if you take a look at the rest of those DC Comics solicitations at Newsarama.com you'll have better luck spotting Gold than I did.

Scheduled for release today is a $40 hardcover collection of work by Ivan Reis titled Graphic Ink: The DC Comics Art of Ivan Reis, including "the complete Blackest Night." Since Booster Gold made token appearances in the first and last issues of that mini-series, we can expect to see him in this.
It looks like the only Booster we've been seeing recently in the DCU is in reprints. Is that better than nothing? I'm not sure.
