    The final issue of Blue Beetle has finally arrived, and so we must bid it a bittersweet farewell. With only seventeen issues, this series won me over and had some extremely good fun along the way, taking Jaime to all sorts of places, not just literally, but in a storytelling sense as well. Whilst this title will always sit in the shadow of the previous volume, this series tried really hard to carve out its own little niche as DC's Spider-Man title, and for the most part, I think it achieved that. Jaime's adventures may continue into Threshold, but for now, we must bid our hero adieu. Read Full Review

    DC has given the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle more than a few chances at securing a reading audience, but so far has not been able to sustain readership. While I am not certain that adding Jaime to a lesser-known and extremely new property like "Threshold" is the right idea to help raise public awareness of such a fun character, I certainly cannot fault DC for their lack of effort in testing new avenues to expose this character to wider audiences. The second volume of the adventures of Jaime Reyes as Blue Beetle ends not with a bang, but a slow fade and a "To Be Continued. . ." plug for another title. Of the seventeen issues this series has had, it's a shame the final one is the most disappointing. Read Full Review
