    Aside from that quirk, this issue is darn near perfect. Bedard's writing is strong, Guara's art is stunning, and the characters are human, exciting and fun. There's more crammed into this single issue of "Blue Beetle" than in some collected editions of other books. And there's plenty more to come. Jaime Reyes' world changed when the scarab fused itself to his spine. We're lucky enough to be invited along for the adventures that follow. Read Full Review

    I like this book, but it's a down-the-middle of the road book for me. I like the fact that DC has a character that focuses on the life of being a teenager, something many Marvel fans are accustomed to and love. It was a bit tough as a new reader to jump onto this book. I understood some aspects very easily, but I had trouble with the larger, overall book. The biggest problem with BLUE BEETLE is that there is was too much going on in this series. Overall, I give it a slight recommendation. Read Full Review
