    So, should I get it? Well, Blue Beetle: Graduation Day #1 seems like a perfect jumping-on point for new fans interested in diving into the character. Long-time Blue Beetle fans will still find a little something to wet their whistle, however, its more of the overarching concepts and possibilities that will drive these long-time fans to continue. Moreover, Blue Beetle: Graduation Day #1 is also offered entirely in Spanish which is absolutely fantastic! So, I highly recommend giving it a try, especially if youre a Blue Beetle fan or more on the younger side. Otherwise, this is probably a rock-hard pass. Read Full Review

    Graduation Day Special kicks off a return to prominence for Jaime, which hopefully wont be the last time. This debut has a solid start that should be maintained throughout by this creative team. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 29, 2022

    Blue Beetle: Graduation Day #1 starts out with some fun energy, but for some reason, Josh Trujillo dials that back while also handcuffing his young hero.  I thought it was a very odd misstep that hopefully get fixed next issue, but for now, this issue was a bit of a disappointment.
