New Release: Blue and Gold 8

If you are a Booster Gold fan — and considering that you're reading, you probably are — stop for a minute to consider that the character's creator, Dan Jurgens, has materially contributed to Booster's development for the past 37 years and counting! That's a spectacular run and a lot of good comics. Thanks, Dan!

Which brings us to the end of Jurgen's latest set of adventures with his creation: Blue and Gold #8, hitting the shelves of your Local Comic Shop this week!

His Own Cottage Industry

If you're a regular reader of this blog, that means you're a Booster Gold fan and probably already aware of Russ Burlingame's online "Gold Exchange" columns recently collected into a book (now available on

Well, considering that Booster Gold made his Arrowverse television debut last month, Burlingame has decided that the time is ripe for another book, this one specifically for CW fans who don't yet know much about The Greatest Hero They'd Never Previously Heard Of.

From Burlingame's announcement at

By coincidence, just days after The Gold Exchange paperback became a reality, The CW revealed that Donald Faison was set to play a new time-traveling hero on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and the description…well, it sounded a lot like Booster.

I quickly realized that fans of the show would want to know more about the character – after all, this was the first major DC character added to the series in years, and in that time, the show had taken on a wildly different personality of its own.

So tonight, as the world gets to see Booster Gold come to live-action for only the second time on TV, I’m announcing A Legend in His Own Time: The Fast-Forward Guide to the Greatest Hero You’ve Never Heard Of. Available as a paperback and ebook in July, A Legend In His Own Time is a condensed and annotated version of The Gold Exchange, trimming much of what the TV audience would consider the fat and providing some additional context for Booster and his history.

I’ve recruited Booster Gold superfan Kevin Allen to help wrangle the 600 or so pages of total Booster content I have down to something that can be quickly and inexpensively distributed, so fans can breeze through it before Legends hopefully returns in the fall.

Burlingame is already taking pre-orders for the book on Can any Booster Gold library really be complete without it?

P.S. — While we're on the subject of Burlingame's personal cottage industry of writing Booster Gold companions, we should also touch on the Gold Exchange special edition hardcover he announced last September. That book still hasn't shipped, but only for the very good reason that Russ has been waiting for Blue and Gold to end its 8-issue run so he can include interviews about it — and the reveal of the Black Beetle's identity — as well. I think we can all agree that's worth waiting for.

New Release: Blue and Gold 7

Blue and Gold #7 is coming your way this week, and already has the issue preview. And it looks like we're getting a very special Guest Star!

© DC Comics

That bad guy monologing about ruling the Multiverse while making life miserable for poor Jaime Reyes can't possibly be anyone other than his greatest enemy... the Black Beetle!

While he hasn't been M.I.A. for quite so long as Theresa Collins was, we still hadn't seen good ol' Black Beetle since the cancellation of Booster Gold volume 2 in 2011, and his true identity remains one of that series' biggest unsolved mysteries. considered the possibilities in depth in a 3-part series in 2014 (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3).

Is Dan Jurgens finally ready to pull off Black Beetle's mask and reveal the villain's true face? Will we believe it even if we see it? There's only one way to find out!

Buy this issue and make Skeets (and Buggles) happy!

Can We Talk About Mom?

Everyone has read Blue and Gold #6 by now, right? Good. Because I can no longer not talk about the issue's most shocking revelation!

No, I'm not talking about the outcome of the fight to the death between Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Sheesh. "Death" is only a temporary problem in comic books. (Personally, I blame Superman.)

What I *am* talking about is this sequence from pages 11/12:

Let's clarify what happens here....

A. Rip Hunter establishes that a threat to the life of his parents is also threat to his own life.

B. Teresa Collins jokes that he might have to kill her.

C. Rip Hunter makes it clear that it would be "healthier" if she doesn't die.

Idioms are funny things. We are expected to assume that Rip's reponse means that it would be "healthier" for Terri if he didn't have to kill her. Sure, that would be bad for Terri, but what if Rip wasn't talking about her health but his health.

Because, as he just said, parents are pretty important.

Oh, I think you know.
