    But Why Tho?

    Blue Beetle #10 is a boss battle for the ages. The spectacle is astounding, and the fight scene is terrific. All the unease and mistrust bleeding into every issue of the run reaches a peak. It culminated in calamity and destruction, with innocent women severely wounded in the middle. Jaime’s growth in the run is becoming clever by the page, cementing his place as the official and undisputed protector of Pelmera City. And whilst he has had guidance from older heroes, he is making the decisive moves to keep those he loves safe.

    Blue Beetle #10 is a thrilling and visually stunning issue that perfectly blends fast-paced action, deep character development, and remarkable artistry. The creative team of Josh Trujillo, Adrian Gutierrez, Wil Quintana, and Lucas Gattoni delivers an intense narrative as Jaime Reyes battles Pinnacle to save Palmera City.

    Gutiérrez more than delivers on Blue Beetle’s biggest action set piece to date and turns out a fun, visually exciting issue. But more than that, Blue Beetle #10 provides unexpected but very welcome emotional closure. This is a showcase issue for everything that makes Blue Beetle exceptional.

    This series is wrapping up next issue, and there is a lot of ground to cover first. Last issue saw Pinaccle fused with the alien Scarab Nol-Dar, becoming an unkillable war machine out of the control of Victoria Kord. It injured Brenda and proceeded to tear its way through Palmyra City, leaving Jaime alone—at least, until Ted Kord stepped out of the shadows ready to save the day. This issue has some good pacing, with Jaime’s battle against a massive enemy being contrasted against the cloak-and-dagger battle to shut down Pinnacle from behind the scenes. It’s great to see Ted again, although I don’t feel like Victoria’s characterization was ever nailed down in this series. Really, the ending of the issue is where this story is strongest—nicely bringing it back to the central relationship between Jaime and Khaji-Da, as they’re about to embark on one final quest to save one of the scarabs.
