Blue Beetle #2 (I'd rather crap broken glass Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Oct 21, 2011 8:57 am

I’m enjoying this book, it’s certainly better than Jaime Reyes’ first origin in the middle of Infinite Crisis. It’s improved on some things but it’s still recognisably the same character, you’ve got the same conflict between Jaime and the crazy killer voice in his suit, the same supporting cast and the same feel. It’s kind of an ‘Ultimate Blue Beetle’ or something. I do wonder where that dude on the motorbike is in the reboot though, was he Peacemaker? I can’t remember. I think what stood out the most in this issue was Ig Guara’s art, it made a jump in quality from #1 and looked a lot more similar to Rafael Albuquerque’s art on the first volume, good stuff. I’m kind of burned out on teen superheroes, but this one is good, maybe I was reading too many of them before, now I’m only really reading this, Supergirl and Ultimate Spider-Man and they are different enough so as not to be repetitive.

I agree that Jaime's origin is simpler, and probably a little better, than it was before. There are things I like, and don't like, about Jaime and his supporting cast, both pre and post Flashpoint. I think it might take me awhile to get used to the changes, Paco being the biggest. I don't like the massive change done to him.

Thank you Troy for the sig
