Batman and Robin might get all the attention, but at DC Comics, another iconic pair of heroes are “the Dynamic Duo” for many fans. We’re talking about Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. Back in the late ’80s, the two ended up as members of the Justice League International. The comic had a comedic tone, and the Blue and Gold team constantly got into wacky adventures. Ones that usually had them bent over laughing at the end.
Now, after many decades, Beetle and Booster are getting their own comic book together at last. Dan Jurgens, the man responsible for creating Booster Gold back in the day, is at the helm. Ryan Sook (Legion of Super-Heroes) is the series’ artist. Along with an exclusive preview of the first issue’s first five pages, we have an interview with series writer Jurgens on the iconic pair’s long history and fresh adventures.
In the July-debuting eight-part limited series, Booster Gold is desperate to regain the spotlight. So he looks to attract the public’s (and Justice League’s) attention the same way any washed-up, second-rate hero would: through 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.
