    Nostalgia plays a big part in this one, but for JLI fans this is an easy recommendation. Read Full Review

    This is definitely a side issue, with no real ties to the larger story until the cliffhanger. But sometimes you just want to see a pair of lovable idiot superheroes act like buffoons with very little stakes. This is a perfect tribute to the era these characters come from. Read Full Review

    Blue & Gold #4 is a fantastically fun comic that brings back memories of Keith Giffen's Justice League. Dan Jurgens has done a terrific job of recapturing the feel of that iteration of the League in this issue's story. Perhaps Jurgens might consider tackling a full JLI story after this series concludes. Read Full Review

    What makes this team great is that they are so ordinary. Booster and Beetle are not gods, so they instead choose to become celebrities. It's refreshing to see an angst free version of heroism. And I look forward to their upcoming installments. Read Full Review

    Not much happens in this issue overall, and at the midway point of the mini-series, that's a problem.  Dan Jurgens tries to get the Justice League International vibes going, but it feels forced and a bit desperate by the end.  It plays out like an over-the-hill comedy duo forced to go on a late-night talk show to do their "who's on first" joke one more time because they have nothing else going on.  The book looks great, but there isn't enough substance for me to recommend it.
