The previews at AIPTComics.com don't give the impression that Booster Gold will be in any of this week's new releases. That doesn't mean I didn't see Booster Gold while looking.
The plot of Multiversity: Harley Screws Up the DCU involves a time travel mishap that unintentionally allows Starro the Star Conqueror to take over the Earth. If that sounds like a familiar scenario, it's because it was also the premise of 2008's Booster Gold Vol. 2 #13.
And though modern audiences raised on Justice League Unlimited episodes and Tom King comics might be surprised to learn otherwise, it wasn't Booster's fault.
It was his 20th-century ancestor's.
Daniel's mistake allowed Starro to possess the original Time Master, Rip Hunter, himself. Two issues of hi-jinks ensued as Starro re-wrote the past and future to his own liking.
Booster ultimately solved his problem with the timely assistance of Chronos and Lady Chronos. Hopefully, Harley can find time-travelling love-interest/frenemies of her own to help. Seems to me she should give Booster Gold a call; he's not doing anything else.

Two weeks ago, Booster Gold got a cool new jacket. That's going to be hard for today's Injustice 2 #30 to top.
Starro as a Red Lantern? Yeah, that might do it.
Buy this issue and make Skeets happy.

I don't usually realize that Booster Gold will make appearances on Cartoon Network's Batman: the Brave and the Bold until I see him show up in an episode. (I hate spoilers so much, I can't even look at TV listings!) But since last week's episode ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, I can be pretty sure that he'll be on tonight's episode as well. It helps that Comicvine.com also happens to have a preview of tonight's episode that includes Booster Gold, so there was that bit of a tip off, too.
Remember: Batman: the Brave and the Bold, "The Siege of Starro!: Part 2," Cartoon Network, 7PM EDT, tonight.

Booster Gold and Skeets helped Batman save the world from Starro the galaxy-conquering starfish in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode "The Siege of Starro, Part One" this past Friday night. Booster was attacked by Ace the Bat-Hound (I love that dog) and expanded his team-up with Batman to include B'Wana Beast, Captain Marvel, and Firestorm. That's some pretty good company if you've got to save the world!
This is the beginning of the end for Batman: The Brave and the Bold: only 26 new episodes remain. There are still 13 episodes yet to be aired from the second half of Season 2, and the entire 13 episodes of Season 3. It may be a little early for mourning, however. We probably won't see Season 3 in America until next fall, given how stingy Cartoon Network has been in doling out episodes in previous seasons. At least we know that there are Booster Gold-centric episodes remaining (as J.M. DeMatteis has previously admitted that he wrote a Blue and Gold episode for the series.
It's disappointing to think that this show is already a dead man walking. The cancellation was announced back at Comic Con in July. Warner Brothers wants to restore the Batman cartoons to a more serious tone. I'm going to miss a Batman cartoon that that can homage comic books like The Brave and the Bold #28 and Sugar and Spike in the same episode, but if the writers can find a way to work Booster Gold into the new series, I won't hold a grudge. (I'm still waiting for my time-traveling Booster Gold appearance in the serious-as-a-heart-attack Batman Beyond Universe.)
