Blue and Gold Make Jim Lee Twitch

DC Comics Co-Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee hasn't drawn Booster Gold often — the cover of Infinite Crisis #5 is the only instance I'm aware of — so we should celebrate it when we see it. Therefore, for any Booster booster who isn't following me on Twitter and hasn't seen this yet, check it out:

Lee didn't just tweet the finished product. He twitched himself drawing it! It took over three hours beginning to end, and you can watch every minute in these videos on YouTube:

Thanks to everyone who reminded me to post that.

Statler and Waldorf in Blue and Gold

My two favorite muppets as my two favorite heroes, as sketched by illustrator Neil R King, aka BoldFacedComics on DeviantArt.com.

For the record, that's Waldorf wearing Booster's gold and Statler in Beetle blue. Those two old grumps have never dressed better.

Speaking of Blue and Gold

We're still a week-and-a-half away from Heroes in Crisis #5, but what appears to be its title page turned up on reddit earlier this week. Feast your eyes on this!

That's Clay Mann's art, all right. He's really quite good. In fact, he's the best thing about Heroes in Crisis.

For the record, DC, I'd buy a book of splash pages of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold hanging out eating pizza and drinking beer. Can we make that happen?

Blue and Gold Together for the First Time

"Blue and Gold." It's a simple phrase that means silly good times and brotherhood.

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold have been best friends since their earliest days together in the Justice League International, and fans soon took to the shorthand way to reference their unique brand of bromantic hijinks as "Blue and Gold" in letter columns and on issue covers. But when did the phrase first appear within the DC Universe itself?

That's the question that Brian Cronin, long the best part of the website now known as CBR.com, recently answered in his "When We First Met" series.

The answer: Justice League America #53, as spoken by Blue Beetle himself.

Actually, the article says it first appears in Justice League America #52, but I just looked into my own long boxes, and I'm certain it was #53. To be fair, the image accompanying the text is for #53, and #53 was indeed the first issue of the "Breakdowns" story as indicated. So we're going to chalk it up to an accidental typo.

Forgiveness is very "Blue and Gold."

UPDATE: Cronin has corrected his typo. Making up for your past mistakes is also very "Blue and Gold."

Blue and Gold and Gray

This week, I finally got my hands on the new Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game: Multiverse Blue Beetle & Booster Gold two-pack figures, and they're pretty much as advertised.

Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game Booster Gold

I ordered them from GameNerdz.com.

As you can see, the miniatures (34mm high) are sold unpainted and unassembled, so you'll need to do a little work to get them display (or play) ready. For example, my Beetle fit poorly in his stand, and my Booster had some residual resin flash that required cutting away with an xacto blade. (You can see the white line under his outstretched arm.) Your mileage may vary.

If I do ever get around to painting them — and they turn out well — I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. (The list of things I say I'm going to get around to only gets longer and longer. Sigh.)
