What Would You Do?

"What Would You Do?" from Blue Beetle vol.7 #15 (DC, 2007) by J. Torres and Freddie Williams II
I've gotten the trades and expect to read the much-lauded (original) Jaime Reyes series as part of my Old52 reading experience (which I am late with because, damn it, WORK), but I've liked every appearance the character has made outside that series, whether that be guest appearances in other comics, his role in the awesome Brave and the Bold cartoon, or the hope he would star in a new Justice League International series (as Ted Kord's legacy) following Brightest Day. Of course, that chapter came to a close thanks to the Flushpoint, rebooting the Beetle in the New52 for no discernible reason (he was already young and inexperienced) and either retreading old ground or turning the Beetles into Lanterns. At least, as far as I can tell from perusing the present series on the stands. (In other words, I don't think it's necessary to splash volume 8 tomorrow.)

  1. I hope you like this, the original series by John Rogers, because it is one of my absolute favorite books. The supporting characters are amazing, Jaime is amazing, his relationship with everyone is perfect, and darn's funny as heck.
