May the Bluest Beetle Win!
The Blue Beetle movie is a fading memory, so obviously the Cosmic Longbox has forced the Nerds to prepare EIGHT BACK ISSUE COMIC REVIEWS featuring the BLUEST of Beetles (except for Dan Garrett… SCREW that guy). We’ll judge these issues with THN’s “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It” rating system, which is about as useful as the 80s Justice League. There’s no time to waste…IT’S BLUE BEETLE REVIEW TIME IN THE ZIGGURAT!
Back Issue Comic Reviews:
- Captain Atom Vol. 2 #83, Charlton 1966 (First Appearance of Ted Kord)
- Blue Beetle Vol. 6 #1, DC 1986 (Ted’s First Solo Series in the DCU)
- Justice League International Vol. 1 #8, DC 1987 (Ted and Booster Become Friends)
