DC's May 2024 solicitations hit the web on Friday, and yeah, as usual, there's a lot of Batman. But in this case, that's not all bad...
...because Booster Gold's going to be in Batman: The Brave and the Bold #13!
BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #13
Written by TIM SEELEY, MARK RUSSELL, DELILAH S. DAWSON, JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV, JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, RODNEY BARNES

Brave and the Bold enters its second year with five tremendous tales! Nightwing and Deadman face the ghosts of the circus, as presented in spectacularly horrific detail by Kelley Jones! Booster Gold (allegedly) causes a disaster that must be fixed by…the JURASSIC LEAGUE?! Artemis’s quest comes to its stunning conclusion! Batman and Guy Gardner face high strangeness when a UFO crashes in Gotham! And finally, Jason Shawn Alexander brings his legendary talents to Batman Black and White!
The question remains which of those writers/artists will be writing the Booster Gold story. The 2022 The Jurassic League mini-series was written by Daniel Warren Johnson and drawn by Juan Gedeon, neither of whom appear to be attached to this project. Any guesses?
You can read the rest of the solicitations at AIPTComics.com.

Late Monday night I received the following email from Booster booster Rob Snow:
Booster sighting! Kinda! We see the back of his head in one panel of the latest World's Finest
Sadly, I have not yet managed to make it to my Local Comic Shop to pick up a copy, but I imagine the panel looks something like this:
The only way to know for sure is to go buy Batman/Superman: World's Finest #23 and make Skeets happy.

Comics publishers are always looking for new (cheaper) artists. In 1988, DC had the bright idea of testing new talent with "Bonus Books," full stories inserted inside established titles.
One of those Bonus Books, the story "Raising the Roof," appeared in Justice League International #18. While the writing and art might feel a little off DC's usual model, the story still contains my favorite page in the entire issue:
Batman "executes" his master house plan? That's a pretty good punchline.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Booster Gold is in this week's Batman/Superman: World's Finest #22. After all, he was on the last page of last month's issue.
So you might expect to see him sooner in this issue. And we do.
This time, he's on the next to last page.
That's three issues of Batman/Superman: World's Finest in a row with very, very brief Booster Gold cameo appearances. How long can they keep this streak going? I guess we'll find out next month.

After many, many months, there's finally a Booster Gold sighting in the monthly DC solicitations for March. In fact, there's a plethora of them.
First up, there's March's issue of Blue Beetle, which even features our hero alongside many of his Justice League International teammates on the cover:

In order to get Ted Kord back on his feet, Jaime will need to work with Booster Gold! Can this Blue and Gold pairing help their friend, or are Ted’s superheroing days over?
And, as if that wasn't enough, DC is also giving us a new collection of Booster Gold volume 2!

Presenting the greatest, most popular, most beloved, and did we say popular, superhero of all time: Booster Gold!
...Or so he hopes to be thought of one day. As the time-traveling hero gets caught up in the madness of changing histories, fighting Time Stealers, and trying to undo the death of his bestie, Blue Beetle, he will learn the hard way
that twisting time too far may just cause it to snap! Collects Booster Gold #0-14 and #1,000,000.
Given that this Book One collects 15 issues, and there are functionally 49 total issues in volume 2, I think we can expect at least two more books to come.
Knowing those are coming is a pretty good early Christmas present.
But wait! There's more
Among the many reprint collections in the monthly solicitations (which include a new printing of 52 Volume One with a very Boosterrific cover), DC has announced a first-time-in-print collection of the WEBTOONs.com Batman: Wayne Family Adventures Volume Four... with Booster Gold and Skeets on the cover!

Cover by VASCO GEORGIEV
$14.99 US, 208 pages, Softcover, ISBN: 978-1-77952-691-5, On Sale May 7
Season two of the smash-hit WEBTOON series continues here! When your superhero life is just as busy as your personal life, there’s never a dull moment in the Bat-Family. Bruce Wayne’s young heroes are still learning to fight and live side by side, but they always have each other’s backs.
Collecting episodes 71-116 of the massively popular WEBTOON series, optimized for a brand-new reading experience in print!
Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but so far as I'm aware, Booster has never appeared in Wayne Family Adventures. I mean, I haven't been reading it, and Googling gives no indication that Booster has ever been there. But it's not impossible. For that price, I'm willing to buy the 6-by-9-inch trade and find out myself.
