    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin May 30, 2017

    The writing flows, and while the art may not be the slickest it's a style which still works. Creating a vibe more of an independent comic book than just another cookie cutter title from DC, it makes this series seem like an underdog " which, technically, it is anyway. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton May 25, 2017

    There is an awful lot to enjoy in this book. Giffen, DeMatteis and Kolins have spun this first story arc into some magnificently designed chaos. Its such a shame to mar that with such a cheap rip-off laugh. Read Full Review

    Jaime Reyes as the Blue Beetle has generally been well received, but this title has added an element the title lacked: a sense of legacy. Plus, many readers bemoaned the loss of Ted Kord. This title truly gives us the best of both worlds by giving us both Jaime and Ted, and they work together better as a team than they do as solo heroes. Read Full Review

    Goddamn, did this issue impress the hell out of me with the bounds and strides it's taking to become a proper series that feels like it's just as important as the big hitters of the DCU.  Yeah, it still has a shit ton of characters that don't seem to have much to do, but the dialog is smoother, the emotion is showing and the action scenes are strong as hell.  Keep on doing what you're doing Blue Beetle because you've just got back on my radar.

    Its a wild comic, and it might be a little confusing at first if you, like myself, hadnt read any of the recent issues. However, you will likely get a kick out of it if youre looking for a weird and action-packed ride. Give it a try. Read Full Review
