    Great series from start to finish, a creative team that combined to produce top level comic work. A fun redo of a well loved character and I hope for more. Read Full Review

    Blue Beetle Graduation Day is a series that feels like it matters. Characters in superhero comics are almost trapped in ambertheir evolution is slow and limited. But by the end of Blue Beetle Graduation Day #6, there is the sense that the creative team has delivered a story that will stay important for Jaimes development going forwardthe point at which he grew up. Or, in this case, graduated. Read Full Review

    This mini wasn't perfect, but it was a good start for Jaime Reyes' future. Read Full Review

    What could have been a great finale just feels like a middling conclusion with a feel-good ending that it hasn't really earned. The cliche message of self-confidence and trust in friends certainly doesn't help. It really would have benefitted from fleshing out its supporting cast a little more along the way. There is still a lot more for Jaime to do, but at least he's finally ready to face the world as a proud superhero and a high school graduate. Read Full Review

    This miniseries is easily the best Blue Beetle's material since the original 2006's ongoing. Adding fresh elements to the character's mythos, like the Horizon, and fun characters like Dynastes, it's a fun prelude for Trujillo's and Gutierrez's new series.

    Kinda rushed ending. The story was fine but I didnt like this type of art.

    While I do believe that this finale started strong by testing Jaime as a hero and as a leader, it dragged down a bit for me during the conversation with The Horizon. It wasn't bad by any means, but I do think it was a tad bit weird for Jaime to, almost impulsively, give this alien race permission to live in a city he just recently moved to himself. However, I appreciate the setup for the ongoing series announced at the same time of this issue's release, which is something I currently plan on checking out when it releases in September.

    All six issues dropped on the DC app. Readable enough, but inconsistent character portrayals, the jarring addition of Victoria Kord, and a generally simplistic story make it nothing special. And it's just really, really hard to imagine a city in the state of Texas happily allowing a ship of aliens to stay around when things are inhospitable to other human being from other nations. Overall, it reads like a smiley happy YA comic.

    This ending felt a bit rushed.

    a fun decent end to this series to hype up Blue Beetle. Probably the "definitive" Blue Beetle run out here.
