Synopsis

It’s all come to this as Jaime faces down the encroaching alien armada! But is he really ready for what comes next? And what does this mean for the future of Blue Beetle?

Review

In this finale issue the Beetles are faced with the impending Reach invasion of Earth, with Superman and Batman willing to take the back seat on this one and let Jaime / Blue Beetle reach his true hero potential. There is only one big issue communication between the carriers and the scarabs have been scrambled and an important message is trying to get through, Jaime must somehow reconnect with his scarab before it’s too late and the Reach manage to arrive on Earth. This has the potential to shake up the universe as we know it, however this story isn’t finished yet with a rather interesting twist at the end (no spoilers).

I’ve really enjoyed this series and felt throughout that this was a great way to bring back a well know hero but with a modern twist, kind of like Miles Morales and Spiderman. Josh Trujillo is a talented writer and this has shown through this series as the story organically grew to it’s climax building each character and giving each one enough page space to balance the story. The story is light hearted but definitely packs a punch and would love to see more.

The illustrations from Adrian Gutierrez have been mesmerising, bold and bright artwork highlight the fun feeling that runs through the veins of this story, each panel was a pleasure to look and and an enjoyment to read.

Verdict

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.
