DC released September solicitations last week to give readers this tease for Blue and Gold issue 3:
BLUE AND GOLD #3
story by DAN JURGENS
art & cover by RYAN SOOK
ON SALE September 21 · $3.99 US
The million-dollar debut of Buggles! Booster Gold and Blue Beetle go...broke?! Ted Kord's secret is out: the heir to the Kord Industries fortune has been cut off and cut out of his family's company! Now the duo needs all the help they can get to fight off the Omnizon's attack and set up their new business. Who can possibly save the guys from themselves? Meet the newest member of Blue & Gold...BUGGLES!
So who is this "Buggles"? Judging from the art, it sure looks like Ted is building his own robotic sidekick. Finally, a playmate for Skeets!
But that name.... Sure, the Blue Beetle has always had his Bug, but....
All children of a certain generation will remember that The Buggles were the rock group featured in the first video ever played on MTV. It was a fitting choice, as the video's song, "Video Killed the Radio Star," is about the inescapable march of progress as the future eats the past. I'd say that's a fitting theme for any Booster Gold story. Dan Jurgens has always had a keen instinct for pop-culture references. I wouldn't put such a sly wink past him.
Am I reaching? I'm sure we'll find out more in September. In the meanwhile, you can see the original solicitation at GamesRadar.com/Newsarama.
