Blue & Gold #2

After a strong start to the new Blue Beetle and Booster Gold eight-issue series, Blue & Gold #2 was a bit of a letdown. The series’ first issue had a lot going on, but it was a success because of the humor. That’s what we expect from a Booster Gold book. But, Blue & Gold #2 didn’t really have a whole lot of yucks. There were only a couple, and they were limited to one page.

That said, the story did take a bit of an interesting turn in Blue & Gold #2. Things aren’t exactly going well for Blue Beetle at the moment, which could create some tension. But Dan Jurgens is still leading readers to believe more goofiness and chaos is on the way. Hopefully we can get back on track with the jokes in the next issue of Blue & Gold. Otherwise, I might have to step away from this series.

(WARNING: Spoilers for Blue & Gold #2 ahead.)

One last thing: the end of this issue clearly indicates Booster Gold is in for an upsetting surprise. I’d love to see him blow a gasket. It’d be a real shame if he found out the Justice League wanted Blue Beetle and not him, too.

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.

Score: 6.5
