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.

And that's all I'm going to say about that.

As you probably know by now, Booster Gold does make a small cameo appearance in this week's Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #4.
Seeing that panel reminded me of another time Booster and Beetle had to save some someone from a tornado, specifically the Red Tornado in Justice League Unlimited #13 (2005).
Of course, that's hardly the first time that Red Tornado ran amok. Booster and Beetle first teamed up against him in Captain Atom #16 (1988). But he wasn't creating tornadoes, then. He was creating hurricanes. So totally different thing.
I guess the point here is that if there's a disaster, natural or otherwise, you can count on Booster Gold and friends to help out.

I'm certain that Booster Gold is in that book's story. What I can't yet say for certain is whether he is on that cover.
He is on the back of that Daniel Sampere wraparound cover of the less "Infinite" first printing, and he'll be on the back of the third printing this October with the original Crisis on Infinite Earths-inspired title logo pictured here:
But the question remains, does the second printing use both sides of the Sampere wraparound cover? The solicitation text isn't clear, and sadly, try as I might, I can't flip over any of the digital images I can find online to see the back.
So if anyone discovers a copy at their Local Comic Shop and can definitively answer the most important question of our times, please let me know so that I can update Boosterrific.com accordingly. Thank you!
UPDATE: Joe Carlo, owner or Monday's awesome gif, has confirmed this is also a Boosterrific wraparound cover. Thanks, Joe!

Tales of the Human Target #1 (of 1) will be available tomorrow at your Local Comic Shop. According to the solicitation text:
Chance teams up with fan-favorite members of the JLI in four connecting mysteries that lead them to that fateful day when one them will kill the Human Target.
Taken literally, that means that the Big Bad of the series is one of the JLI characters featured in the issue, either Fire, Ice, Guy Gardner, or Booster Gold. DC played this same "one of these heroes is a murderer!" with Tom King's Heroes in Crisis in 2018 and have done nothing but bend over backwards to undo it ever since. Glad to see they've learned a lesson from that debacle.
(To be fair to King, he doesn't write the solicitation text. He just, you know, makes heroes into murderers.)
As usual, the stars of a Tom King project are the amazing visual artists DC teams with him. In this case, it's Kevin Maguire and Alex Sinclair on the Booster story, but you can see Greg Smallwood also gets a chance to draw Gold in the issue preview at AIPTComics.com.
As if that wasn't enough great art, keep in mind that a piece of Booster appears on the David Marquez open order variant Cover B.
Yeah, I'm certainly not going to complain about that.
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.
