After two short storylines that did more to lay foundation than showcase the full-on action of the first Doomsday story, the bang pow is back and not a moment too soon.

Decent issue that starts what hopes to be a solid new storyline. The last page caught me by surprise, even though I should have guessed it. After the first storyline being a little too heavy on action, after three slower issues I'm hoping for more action in Action again.

I'm new to the Blue Beetle character and story. I thought the Rebirth titles were supposed to be more newcomer-friendly. I don't understand what the characters are talking about a lot of the time. And I really hate how all of the characters gripe at each other continuously. I think it's supposed to be funny, but it's just very annoying. I'm considering dropping the series.

This issue fired on all cylinders. The splash page with the humpback whales was beautiful. Abnetett has made Atlantis relatable. Eaton's artwork works well for this book. Aquaman (and Green Arrow) are off the beaten path, but still manage to fit with the DC Universe as evidenced by the inclusion of his Justice League membership.

I liked this issue, and loved Hama on layouts however I'm dropping the book as I feel it's going to read better in large chunks than single issues. I have too hard a time keeping track of who's who. Still, after an arc is done I'll pick them all up and enjoy the hell out of a one sitting read.
