For the first time since Rebirth restored Ted Kord as Blue Beetle, he and Booster Gold are front and center in action again!
Okay, maybe they're not "in" action, but they're close enough. Ted isn't much of a hero these days, not since the heart attack that sidelined him into mentoring Jaime Reyes. But he can still don his old costume for special occasions, such as when the real Flash — Wally West! — races S.T.A.R. Labs founder* Speed Buggy for charity as seen in this week's Flash/Speed Buggy Special.
*No, really. Things developed pretty quickly in that comic. There's also a Reverse Speed Buggy now.
Thanks to Logan for pointing out our favorite heroes in the crowd. (Say, does anyone recognize the kid in the yellow shirt between Igoo and Chunk? Or the character below Grape Ape with the purple stripe down his front? Or the kid in the white jacket behind Robin? They're all probably either Flash or Hanna-Barbera characters. Any guesses?)

"Booster Shot," the epic team-up pairing Superman and Booster Gold, continues in today's Action Comics #995.
Though interior art is provided by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund (and not Dan Jurgens), Jurgens did draw one of the two covers. The other cover is credited to
Jay Leisten and Neil Edwards.
Buy it today and make Skeets happy!

Those of you who follow Boosterrific on Facebook have already seen this, but for those of you who don't, Brian Miller of Hi-Fi Designs posted this yesterday:
To recap: First Dan Jurgens tells us that he's drawing "BG". Then Norm Rapmund says he's inking someone with a star on his chest who isn't Captain America. And now Hi-Fi designs removes any lingering doubt. This is definitely a Booster Gold cover.
Jurgens, Rapmund, and Hi Fi were the art team for most of the late, lamented Booster Gold Volume 2. Isn't it nice to have the band back together?
If you'd like to reward Miller for sharing the image with us, consider donating to his Kickstarter campaign for the Femme Mystique graphic novel. Good luck, Brian.

Today's post is going to be old news for a lot of you, but after my rant yesterday, I felt compelled to run this today.
Via Twitter, Norm Rapmund has provided a critical clue about the "BG" art Dan Jurgens teased last week:
Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund working together again is great news, but it's not unexpected. When DC released the April solicitation for Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual #1 back in December, the solicitation included this line:
Variant cover by DAN JURGENS and NORM RAPMUND
So although neither Jurgens nor Rapmund told us why they're collaborating on a cover featuring Booster Gold, I think we can put two and two together.
Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual #1 will go on sale on March 29 with a $4.99 cover price. The standard cover is by Mike Allred and will also feature Booster Gold, so bring $10!
Thanks to bennibeard for linking to Rapmund's tweet in the Boosterrific Forum.
