Blue and Gold #1

Booster Gold and Blue Beetle are back. Writer Dan Jurgens and artist Ryan Sook bring DC's best bromance back to comics with the first issue of the eight-issue mini-series featuring the pair of heroes sure to fill readers of a certain age with all the feels.

The Justice League has been captured? Who will save them? Booster Gold! That is, if he doesn't get killed while trying to livestream the rescue (while his followers discuss the hero's impending death). Thankfully Skeets is smart enough to know just who to go for back-up. While the League may not see the hero in Booster Gold, Ted Kord always has his back.

While I'm a bit confused to the ages of our heroes here (or just how much of their version of the Justice League existed in the current DC timeline), it's a joy to see these two back together again. Blue and Gold #1 if a fun read, and will no doubt appeal to those still nostalgic over these heroes (now bring back Booster's Elvis collar, please).
