Starfire arrives in Palmera City to give Jaime important information regarding the Reach!
But can the Tamaranean warrior help Blue Beetle when another new beetle appears, ready to fight?
The Green Beetle strikes!
ComicBook.comBlue Beetle: Graduation Day #3 is kicking off 2023 in the best way possible, and no DC fan should be missing it. Josh Trujillo kicks in the door right from the start with an amazing Blue Beetle and Batman exchange that gave Ted Kord a small but oh so perfect moment. Also having Starfire act as a mentor to Jaime was rather genius, and she brings a fresh spark and perspective to Jaime's world and gives the team of Adriam Gutierrez and Will Quintana a marvelous canvas to work with throughout the entire issue. Starfire and Blue Beetle are quite the team, but the villains deliver as well, and it's all brought together with the heart of Jaime and his relationship to his family. Blue Beetle: Graduation Day is shaping up to be something special, and issue #3 is a brilliant example of why.
Geek DadThis series is a lot of fun, but being half over it feels like a whole lot of plots are converging without really connecting. The return of another villain at the end of the issue feels more like a distraction from the much larger Reach plot.
Lyles Movie FilesBlue Beetle is a throwback title in the sense that the stakes aren’t universe changing, but have major impact on its title character. The creative team isn’t afraid to throw in multiple cameos from the rest of the DCU making for a breezy and entertaining title that should appeal to readers ready for a book that is content to just be fun.
