Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) will probably never be confused with DC’s “hard-travelling heroes” duo of Green lantern and Green Arrow, but they certainly have had their share of hard times in recent years (such as death, murder accusations, and other lesser problems).
DC Comics’ upcoming Blue & Gold eight-issue limited series by Dan Jurgens and Ryan Sook hopes to get the boys back to their traditional JLA hijinks and friendly squabbles this July.
The new series begins with the attention seeking Booster turning to social media and the vast financial resources of his friend Ted to up his profile. From there, the bubbling pair attempt to navigate the confusing and competitive world of internet influencers.
Blue & Gold #1 (of 8) arrives on July 20 with a cover by Sook and a card stock variant cover by Dave Johnson. The standard edition retails for $3.99, while the fancy card stock version sells for $4.99.
