    Default Why "Blue Beetle: Rebirth" #1 Is DC Comics' Perfect, Hopeful New Title

    Jaimie Reyes and Ted Kord's combined returns are a perfect example of DC's overall Rebirth goals.

    Again, once they whack Jaimie and bring back Ted 100%, THEN I will buy this book.

    Sounds like a winner.

    I have not liked the change of scarab origin, from alien tech to magic. Already has many characters with mythical background in DC.

    I hope so. It was disappointing to see the New 52 run start off so dark and depressing.

    I doubt you're even a Blue Beetle fan so it doesn't matter what you think.

    Anyway I look forward to reading this title, it sounds like a winner!
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    It was fun, but nothing impressive. Never read 'Beetle comics before so didn't really know what to expect. I'm going to keep at it though.

    I liked it well enough. But I feel it spent too much time with the fighting bad guys. One of the best part of Jaime's 2006 was his interactions with his family and friends and this felt like a rushed introduction.

    Anyway I'm in for the long haul. It's good to see these two back in action. Do not like the Magic origin.

    This was good fun. The villains are not that interesting but I liked the dynamic between Jaime and the rest of the cast, they all certainly show more personality than during the New 52 era.

    This is the most entertaining Blue Beetle stuff since his pre-Flashpoint book.

    Yeah, not quite at John Rogers level ("I am...a dentist.")

    But much more engaging than Tony Bedard's run, complete with Giffen's foibles as a writer.

    Dude I don't know if anything can top the Dentist scene.
