All Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, all the time!
*kicks down the door*|
WAKE UP, BOOSTLE, THE BOYS ARE BACK!
HAVE SOME PREVIEW PAGES.
Welcome home, boys. We missed you.
Cool! I'd heard Booster might be in this (and picked up the first trade, and wow, grimgritty.) and this looks pretty interesting.
*makes high pitched squeaking noise* Quick! To the comic book store!
I READ IT
IT HAS CONTINUITY ERRORS (25th century < 31st century, no?)
IT HAS LIKE 100% OF THE BOOSTLE GREATEST HITS (Rat-phobia! Shenanigans! Heart condition! Winding up Max! Gladys! Ted geeking out over tech! Saving each others' lives! EXCEPT NOT ENOUGH HOMOEROTICISM)
TED READS INITIALLY A BIT OOC TO ME
BUT ON BALANCE I LOVED IT
Yeah, I was like "Um, DeMatts, Booster is not from this much future." BUT WHATEVER.
Ted seems to have regressed to a much younger flavor of Ted but WHATEVER I'LL TAKE IT!
I kind of enjoy the writers buggering up their own continuity, in a way. It makes it seem like they're writing more from a place of enthusiasm than of strategy, which is Blue and Gold down to the ground to me :D
I loved that Ralph got a namecheck, too. And that Tora might get to pull their fat out of the fire next issue x
Tora and Bea! I was going to make a terrible pun about Fire pulling their fat out of the fire, but I'm not caffeinated enough to make wordplay.
I know; I thought there had to be one in there too but lacked the wit to make it :)
Off-topic, but I also love the appropriateness of returning to the dank and echoing corridors of LIVEJOURNAL of all places to celebrate the removal from cold storage of something I used to love :D
It took me a good five minutes to remember my log in. I haven't been here in literal years.
Same. Not since the last Boostlethon *single tear*. I guess everyone went to Tumblr? It's a neat platform but (a) it doesn't seem to support discussion/actual conversations in a non-horrible way, and (b) I am too old for that crap get off my lawn.
There's not a Facebook Blue and Gold group, is there?
It's not perfect, but IT EXISTS and NOBODY'S DEAD or EVIL and they count Superbuddies as canon, so I'm thrilled.
