    Read it at my comic store today. It's pretty much the usual "meet the character and his supporting cast" stuff while BB and Guy Gardner fight. The only thing that confused me was the timeline of the story.

    First, they have a page of something hitting Jaime from space (which looks like the scarab) and he becomes the Blue Beetle.

    And yet, Jaimie sees the scarab for the first time under some rubble while walking from school.

    ...Tell me someone else sees what I mean. That's just f**king horrorable writing if Keith didn't catch that.

    But hey, maybe the second issue explains that, so I'll keep quiet until then.

    i don't think the scarab hit him from space....i assumed that was him coming back from space with guy gardner on his tail after they had faced brother eye. the scene with him digging it out of the dirt is when he first finds the scarab

    In Infinite Crisis. Anyway, I'll look into this new series. I'm not to thrilled with Ted's death, so I hope that this new BB is good.

    Question's right about it happening in Infinite Crisis, although I don't think the've actually showed it in the books yet. I believe it was Infinite Crisis 5 that showed Booster recruiting Blue Beetle, so it's probably gonna happen in IC 6 or 7...or possibly the O.M.A.C. special that's yet to come out.

    Okay. I read it. And I must say, it was a pretty decent book, but personality wise, the new Beetle seems to essentially be a hispanic Ted Kord.

    I loved this book, I found it really refreshing and different. I loved the artwork and can't wait to see the story develop. Great book so far.

    Oh good. I didn't see that coming at all. No sir. Keith Giffen's going to write "funny" superhero comics in an unfunny universe? Whee. Thanks for the change of pace, Keith.

    I said personality wise he seemed alot like Ted. The book really wasn't that humorous. Bust still, I constantly fail to understand you hatred for comedy books.

    Oh, and if you need anything else regarding covers or synopses, just go to either www.dccomics.com/comics, and www.marvel.com/comics. They're simple enough to find.

    have you been reading Infinite Crisis at all? because the character was introduced in that...and if you liked what you saw so far, then I'd say you'll enjoy the book.

    Also, Keith Giffen is usually a great writer so I think this book will turn out pretty good. The first issue wasn't amazing or anything, but it was a good start in my opinion.

    I have no problem with them if they stay where they belong. Battle Pope is one of my favorite comics ever. Batman/Lobo (Elseworlds) is up there too. Chuck Norris is hilarious (even if it wasn't intended to be funny.) I have no problem at all with comedy comics if they stay out of serious universes. The old laugh-it-up Justice League books made no sense because everybody else in the DCU was turning more serious and dark, but suddenly they'd come over the League's ridiculous little clubhouse and be all jokey-jokey. Non-EW Lobo made no sense because the Crisis got rid of ludicrous power levels, but here's a guy who can bump his bike into a planet and destroy it, and bleeds clones of himself. Woo. Har har?
