Booster Gold #3

Bster Gold #3
I still love this comic. Each issue tells an individual story that's part of the integral whole. That's good storytelling. Still, it could use a recap page.
I'm unclear on the inclusion of scenes and cameos from the past. Is there a reason for it, or is it just what happens as one traverses time? And even if so, couldn't the space be better utilised for actual story?
By this point, I'm pretty certain that the post-crisis rule of not being able to time-travel using the same method twice has been reversed. Because otherwise, the central thesis of this book doesn't make sense.
I love the idea of a Jonah Hex cameo where Booster and Jonah don't do anything but get drunk together. No fighting, just drinking. Obviously, Booster is smarter than we give him credit for.
