FIRST LOOK: Blue Beetle Rebirth #1

Written by: Keith Giffen
Art by: Scott Kolins
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: August 24, 2016

Lost in the desert with no memory of the past few years, teenager Jaime Reyes must find his way home again—but when he reaches his town, he’s shocked to find it abandoned and in the hands of government officials…officials who are very interested in the Blue Beetle and the scarab that gives him his power! How can Jaime find his family and uncover the secret behind the town’s seizure—and why Kord Industries is helping keep the world from learning the truth?

What's with all of these people in the DCU forgetting everything?  Is it something in the water?  Do they need some EPA and DHA supplements?  While this Rebirth solicit sounds a bit strange, everyone here at the Weird Science Clubhouse is waiting in anticipation for the teaming up of Jaime and Ted!  And remember...the scarab is MAGIC!!!


  1. Cannot wait for this. Surprised but happy they are taking the scarab back to being magic. Tickles me in all my golden age goodies :)

    1. lol...Eric was upset at first about it being magic, but I think it opens up more story possabilities

    2. I'm really hyped for this team up book. But like Eric I am a bit pist that it's not alien technology. I was a reader of Jaime Reyes before the new 52, and he had a great run, he even got to team up with booster gold in Generation Lost storyline. All of his Continuity has had the Scarab be Alien Tech. I really hope this works and doesn't turnout to be a hawkman scenario of making his origin complicated.
