Don't expect to see Booster Gold in any of this week's books. Don't expect to see him in any book in August, either.
DC released their August solicitations last week with nary a Booster in sight. Nor even a Dan Jurgens credit, which is important because Jurgens has historically been the one to sneak Booster back into the spotlight.
To be fair, most of the August books tie-in to the Knight Terrors event, and I can't say I'm sad that Booster looks to be missing out on that. (Perhaps he'll show up as a cameo appearance in someone else's nightmare?)
August does have a one-shot G'nort's Illustrated Swimsuit special. Could we see Booster in that? G'nort was Booster's Justice League International teammate for a while, and no hero in the DCU looks better in a swimsuit than our hero, as demonstrated in 2020's DC Cybernetic Summer!
And even if we don't have new comics coming, we've still got plenty of old comics to read. Comics like 2014's Scribblenauts Unmasked: A Crisis of Imagination #7. I didn't know about that one until J told me last week. Thanks, J.
Keep your eyes peeled, Booster boosters. You never know where you'll find Booster Gold next!

You may have noticed that Modinda dropped by the comments in Wednesday's post to chastise me for my omission of a six-year-old comic from the Boosterrific.com database. Could I really have been ignorant of a Booster Gold comic appearance from as long ago as 2014? The answer is yes.
Set your eyes on this panel, from Scribblenauts Unmasked: A Crisis of Imagination #6:
That's obviously Nu52 Booster Gold (and original Skeets) partaking in a reference to the famous "one-punch" from Justice League #5. How could I have missed that?
That panel is just a small fraction of a delightful two-page spread, by the way. (It did my heart good to see the Dibnys back together!) A very belated kudos to issue artist Adam Archer.
Rest assured that the now-more-complete-than-ever-before Boosterrific.com database has been updated to include both Scribblenauts Unmasked: A Crisis of Imagination #6 and the series collected edition. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Modinda. And if anyone else spots anything they think I've missed, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Have you ever heard of Tracy W. Bush?
If you're a Booster Gold fan, you've probably heard him, if not of him. Bush was the original voice of Booster Gold in Sony Online Entertainment's DC Universe Online. (Booster's lines have since been re-dubbed since Bush left the company.)
It's worth keeping track of Bush's work. After leaving SOE, he caught on at 5th Cell Media, the company behind the Scribblenauts franchise. Bush was credited as both a writer, audio director, and sound designer for Scribblenauts Unmasked. (He's even a character in the game!)
This means that Tracy W. Bush has played a vital role in crafting two of the three video games prominently featuring an animated Booster Gold!
If we want to see in what video game Booster will turn up next, maybe we should keep an eye on Tracy W. Bush.

As previously reported, Booster Gold is among the hundreds of DC characters in Scribblenauts Unmasked. But that's not all. It turns out that our hero actually plays a role in one of the game's storyline missions, "Flash vs Professor Zoom"
Click the picture above if you want to see a full walkthrough video of the mission (and all of Booster's dialogue, beginning about 17:23) by ixCeLiFy on YouTube. If you'd rather play the game yourself, it's available on the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Steam.
