    I hope the rumours of Blue Beetle's cancellation aren't true, as I feel this title is just starting to hit its stride. Here's a suggestion for the DC: take a cue from Green Lanterns and change the title to Blue Beetles with both Ted and Jaime as a duo. Read Full Review

    The supporting characters have more of their story fleshed out while we get a look at the dangers Jaime will be facing with some old and new villains. Blue Beetle is playing a long game with the current series that is still worth getting involved in. Read Full Review

    Blue Beetle 11 returns Jamie to somewhat normality after the epic story featuring a corrupted Arion. This issue boasts some further character development, particularly from the supporting characters of Blue Beetle and of course Jamie who tries to grapple with the events from the last few issues. Then you have the killer page at the end which features our favourite Dark Knight, Batman! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Russ Dobler Jul 26, 2017

    It's completely out of place in the modern market. Not just written in an old style, which could be interesting when juxtaposed with today's tropes, but basically a four-color copy of a 20-year-old book, right down to the pop culture references. Read Full Review

    While this issue does give us some ideas about how the series will change going forward that are pretty exciting, overall, this is still just a lackluster issue that spends most of its time catching readers up on what the status quo of all the characters are and if you've been reading this whole time, nothing much besides for Jaime has changed.  The art was decent, but the story still seems to be lacking in this series.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 28, 2017

    Its disappointing to say it, but this was a very disposable issue. It does little to forward the plot or the characters, and it wraps up a story that was pretty much over already. I like Jaime and Ted and this book overall, but I cant recommend this issue even to Blue Beetle fans. I cant say this comic is a complete waste of your money if you follow this series, but it wont do much for you. Read Full Review

    Yeah, we get it. In fact, most of us grew up on it. Spider-man has been beating that drumfor about 50 years now. Maybe theres an obligation to touch on the dynamics of every day life vs. crime fighting. But I expect it to be handled better by thepros like Giffen and Dematteis. Read Full Review

    You know it's a bad sign when Batman makes an appearance in a title that couldn't be farther removed from him. Remember New 52 Hawk and Dove when it was doing terrible and they guest-starred Batman as a remedy? Yeah it kicked the bucket less than a year in... I feel the same about this title.

    Sort of a mess - how did I not realize Tina was the Batman of JL3001 till now - but a genial mess. I like what's been going in this series, but Giffen and DeMatteis never quite manage to pull it together.
