Blue and Gold Restoration is open for business! Only issue is, our duo is falling apart while their waiting room is packed to the brim with mostly illegitimate problems. Now Omnizon, self-appointed ruler of Earth, is here to sentence Booster and Beetle to death for disobeying her royal rule of the land. It’ll take a friend from the future to save their present and prevent a PR nightmare that could close their operation for good!

    This colorful issue uses modern comic book design. The drawings are detailed and expressive. And there is an energy to the artwork that matches the personalities of Booster and Blue Beetle. Read Full Review

    This has been one of the most pleasant, offbeat surprises out of DC in a while, as Dan Jurgens gets the band back together for a suitably absurd adventure. Read Full Review

    Blue & Gold #5 is another fine issue of Dan Jurgens' highly entertaining buddy story. Booster and Blue Beetle are two of DC's best characters, but they are criminally underused. It's great that Jurgens has brought them back, even if it's just for an eight-issue miniseries. Hopefully, this series will lead to further appearances of these heroes in other DCU titles.

    Blue & Gold #5 finally got me invested in the series, but is it a little too late?  Time will tell, but for now, I had a smile on my face while reading this issue.  The overall story may not be one for the ages, but it's a fun read with great art. Read Full Review

    Blue and Gold is nearing the end of its eight-issue run. The characters remain endearing, but this arc still hasnt felt like its gone anywhere even at its conclusion. Read Full Review

    Honestly, Blue and Gold #5 felt very underwhelming, but it at least seems to be moving past its initial concept. Read Full Review
