New to me superhero.

Blue Beetle Vol. 1: The More Things Change (Rebirth) (Blue Beetle (Rebirth)) - Keith Giffen, Scott Kolins

New to me superhero in that I'd heard the name but not read any previous issues.

 

This is a new incarnation of The Blue Beetle, Jamie Reyes, teenager, and he has a scarab beetle-type tech welded to his back. Unfortunately, someone wants it back and it appears it can't be removed without killing him.

Fun in the way a teenage hero should be. Lots of worrying about skipping school to do superhero duty and hanging with friends that know your secret (it's barely a secret, the world and his wife seems to know). Lots of banter between school friends and with his mentor, former Blue Beetle, Ted Kord.


We get his origin in several panels almost at the end of the book rather than a whole issue at the beginning.


The artwork is bright and well drawn. 


Impressed, can't wait to get the next issue.
