Jaime Reyes arrives in beautiful Palmera City for a gap year with his tías working at their restaurant. But Jaime’s got another thing on his mind, like who was that mysterious Yellow Beetle, and how are they connected to the Reach message that bombarded his scarab? Can Blue Beetle track down this new scarab, or will this super-heroing bring the full might of the Justice League down on Jaime?
Comic WatchBlue Beetle Graduation Day #2 is a comic that will make you smile. A bigger story is coming (the end of the issue is a good cliffhanger) but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a fun comic with an easy to relate to character who wants to have a good time during the summer. In fact, as someone generally unfamiliar with the character, that’s made getting into this book very easy. If you missed the first issue–don’t miss this one. You won’t regret it.
Geek DadOverall, this continues to be a fun series, although one that definitely cuts Jaime down a bit and makes him seem more like a rookie than I would expect. There is also a fair bit of unsubtitled Spanish in the English version, so have a translator nearby if you don’t speak it. Any quibbles aside, it is still very good to see this character get the spotlight for the first time since Rebirth.
