Blue Beetle, Meet Booster Gold

Last week Josie Campbell interviewed Blue Beetle writer Tony Bedard for Comic Book Resources. It would seem that Bedard has big plans for the future.

CBR: So we are going to see Kyle [Rayner, Green Lantern] and Jaime [Reyes, Blue Beetle] meet! From that point onward is the idea for the series to become more involved in the greater DCU with characters crossing over to different books, events in "Blue Beetle" echoing through other series, etc.?

Tony Bedard: Yes, after re-introducing Jaime to the readers and re-establishing his origin, etc., I want to make sure that his world extends beyond his roots in El Paso. Readers need to know that this guy is important to the DCU, and I think Blue Beetle fans want to see him interact with Green Lanterns and with the Justice League and especially with Booster Gold. Now, we're not going to do it all at once, but I think it will be a blast to discover the rest of the DCU heroes and villains through Jaime's eyes.

No mention was made of the series' tenuous sales position after DC's recent slate of cancellations or how far Bedard is working ahead of the already solicited issue #8 due in April. Nonetheless, it seems pretty clear that if you want to see Blue and Gold reunited in future issues, you might want to start promoting Blue Beetle to your friends and family. You don't want to be responsible for standing between Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, do you?
