    ConclusionBlue Beetle is delivering one of the best classic and pure comic book storytelling experiences available today. Old school funny book fans, and new school DC Rebirth readers, pick this up, sit back, and just ENJOY reading a comic book. Read Full Review

    Blue Beetle continues to be the truth from Dc Comics. There are a bunch of things we can say we miss from vol 8 of the installment (like when the scarab talked) but we're building up a new adventure here so the ride is still enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Perhaps this storyline could be moving a little more quickly, but its not like the tale is dragging at all. The time gets spent on the emotional states of Jaime and his supporting cast, which functions well to raise the stakes and make the events of the story hold more weight. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 27, 2017

    In short, the adventures of Beetle and Beetle (featuring flashbacks to Beetle) are still compelling, and the interplay of impetuous Jaime with more mature Ted makes for good story. Blue Beetle #6 had me with the revelation that Kord still has his bug-goggles, but kept me hooked with interesting story and very good art. Read Full Review

    The action is hitting high gear now, and I eagerly await to see next issues confrontation with Doctor Fate. This title holds some of Rebirth's most tantalizing secrets, and it's a pleasure to scour each issue for more hints. Read Full Review

    Overall, Blue Beetle #6 felt like a ho-hum issue that I marked up a half-point because of the cameo and where it looks like the book is heading at least for one issue. Maybe, to make things fair, this comic is pointed at a younger demographic and just isn't made for me. I loved me some circa 1986 Ted Kord Blue Beetle. But this issue did not leave me with a compelling reason to on-board for the current 2017 ride. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 22, 2017

    While this issue tries to wrap everything that we've been dealing with into a neat little bow of a bad guy, it does so in a convoluted way that left me scratching my head at the end about what's really going on here and wondering whether or not I'll ever fully understand since magic is involved.  The art in this issue looked really good though for the most part and we did end things on a cliffhanger that at least leaves me interested in what will come next.
