    If Tony Bedard is going to have Bones as a recurring character, then Blue Beetle will make its way back to my pull list. The fact that Booster Gold appears at the end, possibly to establish a new Booster/Beetle partnership like what he used to have in the Old More-Than-52 with Kord, is a hint that maybe it'll find a way to tide me over until Bones' next appearance, too. I'd rather read Bones' own title, but that's not happening, so I'll be fine with this. I do have to say that the revelation that there's apparently a TMZ for the superhero set is a horrible and smart idea at the same time. Because of course there would be, even if we hate it for smearing people we like. Read Full Review

    After some issues meandering around New York, bemoaning his circumstances, Blue Beetle might finally be finding a direction. If any of the pieces put on the table in this issue continue to be used, this series will soon be discussed as "most improved" title from last year's relaunch. "Blue Beetle" is finally carving out some space in the DC Universe, now it just needs to capitalize on that space and continue to churn out satisfying and entertaining summer reads like "Blue Beetle" #10.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jun 21, 2012

    This is what excited me most about this issue. Blue Beetle and Booster Gold have a long history together - when the Blue Beetle was Ted Kord, albeit - so it's fantastic that DC is building that relationship once again. In the 'New 52', Ted Kord is only a memory (I assume), so it will be interesting to see how a dead character will affect events throughout DC's imprint. Read Full Review

    This is a solid issue of Blue Beetle, and showcases everything that makes the series what it is. From Jaime's personality to the influence that his family and friends have on the goings on in his life, the story in this series evolves naturally from one issue to the next; there's no reason to have multi-part arcs specified, because it is all one big storyline, and all the better for it. Bedard and Guara are a great team, and I'm glad to have this series on my pull list " I'm sure you would be too. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jun 22, 2012

    And therein lies the problem with this, and about half of the New 52 books, they want it both ways. They want to pull on the nostalgia strings without explaining every single tiny detail in case a new reader is lurking around the corner. This just doesn't work. Pick a horse, damn it, and see it through to the end. Until that happens, "Blue Beetle" and its ilk will just be mediocre takes on potentially great characters. And I will not be buying them.
