    True, Giffens banter is sadly missing from this issue, but on the whole Sebela is doing a creditable job carrying on with the book. But one really cannot ignore how much Kolins is bringing to the series. Read Full Review

    Despite these drawbacks, it still is a decent read. I wish Sebela had been allotted a longer run to show what he could do with the characters. This storyline is good, but the spectre of the title's impending end gives it a bit of a sombre feel that diminishes the fun " and Blue Beetle is a title that should be fun. Read Full Review

    The penultimate issue of this series' final major storyline (it'll have a done-in-one story to finish out the run in February) is unfortunately the most disappointing issue of the new run. Read Full Review

    The road trip arc hasn't been my favorite, the story feels like filler while DC is deciding if they want to cancel the series like the new 52 version. Read Full Review

    This last arc of the Blue Beetle series has been rough as hell and this issue doesn't do much to make it better.  Yeah, we finally get to see our villain and find out about what makes him a villain, but that's about all we get here, while making our hero look like an asshole.  Ultimately, the art is decent here, but the story is a mess and I don't see things getting better as it goes.
