Blue Beetle unwittingly accompanies Teri Magnus-the Flash of the 31st century-into the future. It's not a journey he wants to take, but it's one that will unravel some mysteries-like why Teri's been living in present day El Paso and working for Ted Kord. Plus, Jaime learns a shocking secret about someone in his own life!

    It has been a fun ride with Giffen, DeMatteis, and Kolins, but they are now handing the title over to a new creative team. I hope they can live up to the standard set by their predecessors. Read Full Review

    So whither Blue Beetle now? DC seems determined to give this guy a book, and all but guaranteed a readership of this latest run with the guest star packed stories thus far. I really wouldnt mind a bit of a break from that, and just spend some time with Jamie and Ted Kord and the supporting cast. Read Full Review

    I thought I would never see the 3001 League and that Supergirl again. One more look was like finding money in the pocket of the pants that went through the wash, a wonderful surprise. Thanks to DeMatteis, Giffen, and Kolins! Read Full Review

    Blue Beetle has been a notably flawed title under this creative team, but its more often than not made up for these flaws with energy and dedication. Ill miss this book as it is, but I hope the future is bright. This issue is worth picking up to see this creative team off, as it keeps they keep the trademark tenacity of Jaime Reyes alive to the end. Read Full Review

    Although not the greatest issue in the series, Blue Beetle #13 serves as a nice handover to the new creative team and for fans of Justice League 3001, it gives them a little closure. All in all, it was a fun issue with some clever dialogue and great art from Mr Scott Kollins. Read Full Review

    The artwork brought good narration alongside the text. I've been wanting my Blue Beetle team back for a while, and now that they are, the ride has been alright. I think there's a lot that can still be done with Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes though, so more time won't hurt in fleshing them out. There's a new team coming for the baton pass with Blue Beetle, so we'll see what they have in store. Giffen and Kolins have given us a great bridge into Rebirth with their run. Read Full Review

    Besides for a possible revelation that may or may not continue going forward in this series........ I'm saying not, there really isn't any reason to pick up this issue because all it does is give the Justice League 3001 series one more outing before going away and the status quo of this series continuing where it left off in the previous issue.  With all that being said though, I can't wait to see what the next creative team brings to this book next month.   Read Full Review

    Giffen and DeMatteis try to wrap up both their run here and the dangling threads of the late, lamented, and much better JL3001 comic, but it doesn't quite come together. Though I do wonder if, when Giffen introduced La Dama, he had this twist in mind.
