Curious what enduring friendship looks like? Look no further than DC Cybernetic Summer #1, "Boys of Summer by Heath Corson, Scott Koblish, et al.
Blue and Gold Now:
Unapologetically silly and sincere, this is my favorite kind of super hero comic story. The way comics are packaged and sold these days, it could only appear in one of DC's seasonal anthology books, so a hearty thanks to DC Cybernetic Summer for making the space for it.
If you don't have your own yet, inquire at your Local Comic Shop. This comic is 100% Boosterrific.

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:
Thanks to everyone who reminded me to post that.

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.

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." 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?
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."
