Booster Gold And Blue Beetle Finally Get Their Own ‘Blue And Gold’ Mini-Series
by Olly MacNamee
In a move that will be welcomed by many long term Justice League of America fans, DC Comics announce an all-new eight-issue mini-series starring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Written by Dan Jurgens and illustrated by Ryan Sook, expect Blue and Gold to reflect the kind of irreverent humour that made this double act such a central part of the classic Justice League of America ’80s run by Keith Giffen and J.M. Matteis:
“Michael Carter, aka Booster Gold. A scoundrel from the future armed with stolen technology, a time machine and a robot pal named Skeets, is intent on making a name for himself in the past!
Ted Kord, aka Blue Beetle. The inheritor of a proud legacy of crimefighting who had no powers to speak of, but who carried on the Blue Beetle legacy with just his wits and his fists…is armed with a whole lot of gadgets and a sharp sense of humor!”
“Desperate to regain the spotlight, Booster Gold looks to attract the public’s (and Justice League’s) attention the same way any washed-up, second-rate hero would—social media. The not-so-tech-savvy hero from the 25th century enlists the help of his best friend, Blue Beetle, who possesses both the money and the brains to help his old pal navigate the scary world of internet influencers.
Watch out, evildoers, our heroes are live and online!”
And in stores this July 20th from DC Comics.
