The final issue of Human Target is out this week, and
it's not impossible that UPDATE: Rob Snow assures us that Booster Gold puts in an appearance.
Booster might also pop up this week near Ted Kord in Blue Beetle: Graduation Day — UPDATE: he's actually in the House Ad for Lazarus Planet Omega — or referenced by Rip Hunter and his original team of Time Masters in Stargirl: The Lost Children — UPDATE: he's not, but another rarely seen time-displaced Leaguer is.
One place I wouldn't normally think to look for Booster is in the pages of this week's Batman: Gotham Knights: Gilded City, the comic tie-in to the Gotham Knights video game. Booster isn't often in Gotham City, but he is in the game. Or at least Skeets is.
Obviously, Flakies was the first cereal that Booster Gold ever endorsed way back in 1985 (in Booster Gold #2), and its great to see that they're still in business.
Gotham Knights takes place in an alternate universe where Batman is dead, so while it shouldn't come as a surprise that their cereal is star-shaped, I do have to wonder why they're called "Flakies" if the cereal itself isn't made of flakes? What kind of universe is this?
Thanks to friend James for spotting these boxes in game on top of Barbara Gordon's refrigerator.

After Booster Gold was portrayed so heroically in his first issue, Booster Gold volume 1, number 2 really delivers the gut punch that maybe he's not really all that he's pretending to be. He starts face down in the gutter, his friends chew him out for his failures, it becomes clear his family is lost to him forever, and the issue ends with the death of his sidekick. What a downer!
Yet, in the midst of all that, we get one of the best Booster Gold pages in the character's history:
