If you pay attention to DC's solicitations for upcoming issues, you may remember that the image solicited in October as the cover of Blue and Gold #6 was actually used on the cover to issue #4.
So what will the cover of issue #6 look like? In a word, this:
That's the cover that Lunar Distribution included in its Final Order Cutoff last week for books to be released February 22, which means there is a very high probability that it's what you'll be seeing in your Local Comic Shop in three weeks.
If you like what you see, I recommend a visit to artist Ryan Sook's Instagram, where you'll find this art without trade dress plus previews of some of his interior art.

Booster booster Rob Snow sent me an electronic-mail to share the news that Ryan Sook has already released his original pen and ink page art for Blue and Gold #5 for sale at felixcomicart.com.
Naturally, I went and took a look, and what I found blew my—hold on.
Since there is no dialogue in the line art (these days, the letterer places the speech balloons digitally over colored artwork), and we already know that Rip Hunter is on the solicited cover for the issue (as reported on the Boosterrific Blog back on September 20), I don't think telling you that a red-headed, bearded Rip Hunter appears in the pages qualifies as much of a spoiler.
But if you don't want to see what follows before the issue is released, I'll give you to the count of three to look away.
Still here? Good, so am I. Now, where were we? Ah, yes. Here:
Rip Hunter and Trixie Collins hugging? Needle drop!
As Rob said in his email
I swear if Rip calls her Mom imma lose my $#!+
You and me both, Rob.
I guess we'll find out what sweet nothings they are whispering to one another when Blue and Gold #5 is released next week.

I do not have Blue and Gold #4 in my hand yet, but DC Comics' exclusive direct-market partner, Lunar Distribution, expects it to ship this week for a November 16 release, and I'm going to take them at their word.
DC feels so confident, in fact, that they've already released a sneak peek of the book to Comic-Watch.com. It's a cute couple of pages of Blue and Gold being interviewed by their adoring press, but the best part is
"Art, Present Day" by Ryan Sook, "Art, Blue Beetle's Sequence" by Kevin Maguire, and — most importantly — "Art, Booster Gold's Sequence" by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund?! It's a Justice League International and Booster Gold Volume 2 reunion! That alone should be worth the wait.
Buy this issue and make Skeets (and Buggles) happy!

Congratulations to Blue and Gold artist Ryan Sook for finally giving me reason to sign up for an Instagram account with this very inventive announcement over the weekend on instagram.com/rsookart:
rsookart: So, yeah, this is my own personal gag about supply chain issues. But really, next issue will be there Sept. , 7! Support your LCS, retailers, publishers, and the titles you love during the snafus because even superheroes have set backs from time to time. And Booster and Beetle will be back in action ASAP!! #blueandgold #dccomics #dcuniverse #boostergold #bluebeetle #superheroes #newcomicbookday
Well, that makes it almost worth the delay, Ryan. Thank you. (Additional thanks to Rob Snow for calling this unusual Boosterrific comic strip to our attention.)
Click any of the above images to visit Sook's Instagram to see the comic in its native, one-panel-at-a-time format.

I need a little help.
Last week, DC published this house advertisement in digital editions of several books, including Green Arrow 80th Anniversary and Teen Titans Academy 2021 Yearbook.
However, when I bought a physical copy of Teen Titans Academy 2021 Yearbook for my collection, I discovered that the ad is nowhere to be seen in its pages. (And that's despite the issue's dedication to duplicating a high school yearbook, complete with a section for "Boosters & Corporate Sponsors." You missed a great synergy opportunity there, DC!)
In years past, I used to have access to weekly floppies so I could execute this search myself. But there have been far too many casualties during The Pandemic, and my opportunity to flip through DC comics each week is one of them. Now I can only touch what I buy, and I can't buy everything.
Therefore, I need your help identifying whether the ad actually appears in *any* physical books published by DC last week. Or maybe books coming this week.
I can hear some of you saying, "What difference does it make what physical comics it appears in? Can't you just list the digital editions it's in?" Yes, I can and maybe should. However, I strongly doubt that any of us will have access to the same digital editions in, say, 30 years. Who knows what ads will be included in whatever format the future will use for digital "reprints." That's why I want to identify where this ad might be in physical media, so that Booster boosters in the future can have access if they want it.
I mean, we all expect Blue and Gold to still be around in 2050, right? Hopefully more famous and beloved than ever before!
Thanks for your help.
