Who needs the Justice League anyway? Our heroes certainly don’t! After a painful rejection from the DC Universe’s team of a-list heroes, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle strike out on their own. Thanks to the Kord Industries fortune, anything is possible for this dynamic duo…right? Little do they know, an alien assassin seeking revenge places Blue and Gold in her crosshairs, and The Omnizon never misses!

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Sep 7, 2021

    Sook has created a good looking issue filled with bold colors and fun action scenes. The focus on character expression is engaging and emotionally connective. I felt the illustrations perfectly matched the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 7, 2021

    Blue and Gold is quickly finding its footing as Jurgens strikes the right tone between humor and serious action. It might be time to consider making this a permanent entry in the comic pull list. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Sep 7, 2021

    A great second issue that gives the story a clear course to sail and sets it, jets blazing, on its way. This is a book you're going to want to spend some time with. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 24, 2021

    Blue & Gold #2 is another great issue of Dan Jurgens' great buddy superhero story. I'm happy that DC's Infinite Frontier lineup features titles like this that have a lighter tone, but still have a lot of heart. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 7, 2021

    The main plot is still a little unclear, but it doesn't really matter. This book is as much about just enjoying watching these two"back in vintage form"playing off each other as they get into ridiculous antics. I feel like it could maybe use a little more straight-up comedy and a little less high stakes, but I'm not complaining about a great revival like this among DC's roster. Read Full Review

    The biggest problem with BLUE AND GOLD #2 is that it looks like Jurgens is still trying to decide what type of comic this is supposed to be. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 7, 2021

    While I still want a more significant overall story to get going, Dan Jurgens does some considerable character work with Ted Kord while keeping the fun going with Booster Gold.  It's all likely to come to a head real soon, and I will be there to see what happens. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 21, 2021

    Perhaps my favorite moment of comes in Booster thinking idly how the pair could earn both some fame and glory with a high profile "death." What other schemes might he have up his sleeves? The issue teases the introduction of Princess Omnizon who isn't part of this story but will have a larger role to play in the issues to come. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 8, 2021

    I hope that the sad sack heroes routine doesn't last for the whole series, but some fun art from Sook helps that medicine go down, making for a pretty good comic. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Sep 7, 2021

    One can only hope Jurgens dumps both bits of information in Booster's lap all at once. Turning this team-up into a feud would be a welcome twist " but I fear I may be asking for a bit too much with that idea. Read Full Review
