"THE POSSE" part three! How do you defeat a foe with 150 bodies? Meet the hive mind called Horde, an entity that can summon a host of minions to overwhelm any foe. That's not the sort of complication Jaime Reyes needs in his life as he continues to deal with his overbearing mentor, Ted Kord, and a new romantic interest.

    Blue Beetle #3 is what great comics are all about. The perfect marriage of pictures, words, layout, and color. I highly recommend you pick the book up if you are a fan of classic and fun superheroics. Its a nice change from the heavy doom and gloom that hangs over the Rebirth event, and I hope this book and creative team continue to tell stories together. Read Full Review

    We're starting to see more of the Scarab taking control and coming to its own. I'm looking forward to more instances of Jaime talking to the Scarab and us (the audience) not understanding what the Scarab is saying. Luckily enough, the next issue is going to be dealing with the origins of the Blue Beetles. This should be good considering the work Giffen and Kolins have already put forth in creating a path for Jaime Reyes to follow. Read Full Review

    This issue raises a lot of questions, but gives few answers. This in itself is not a bad thing, as it's raising suspense, which plays against the promise of next issue's revelations. I eagerly look forward to seeing what that issue will tell us about Jaime and Ted. Read Full Review

    Yeah, we got a cool opener to this issue and a little more background about what Doctor Fate was up to previously in this series, but ultimately this is just anther underwhelming issue of Blue Beetle that leaves me wanting more.  The art was decent throughout, but the dialog just isn't that great and the majority of this issue just feels like filler.
