Blue Beetle #16: WITNESS the MONSTER within BLUE BEETLE!
so i was checking the tags for Blue Beetle / Jaime Reyes and apparently the issue where we find his "DARKEST FANTASIES of ULTIMATE POWER" hasn't been posted yet, which is a crying shame.

it's a one-shot issue, and i'm posting just the last couple of pages, but you won't be spoiled for anything massive for the series.

It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 4

Intermission: Hangin' with Beetle (pt 2)
With special bonus: Vic's Cool Quota Runs A Surplus

Tonight we're looking at Blue Beetle v6 #'s 5-7, by Len Wein and Paris Cullins. There's a lot of crazy meta stuff surrounding this arc. It ends two months before Ted plays his part in the Legends cross-over, which lead to JLI, so he hasn't really fostered any relationships with DC natives yet, so they apparently decided to reinforce his friendship with a fellow Charlton immigrant first. Also, and really, really interestingly, Vic's guest spot in BB #'s 4-7 (#4, if you'll remember, we glanced at in our last post) were released concurrently with the first four issues of Watchmen. It's makes me curious as to whether this arc happened to further establish Vic and Ted's partnership in order to legitimatize the homage of Rorschach and Nite Owl. It's a lot to think about.

Why I Love Guy Gardner
There are some people who prefer Hal Jordan. Others who prefer Kyle Rayner. Yet others with great affection for John Stewart or Ruffles the Rage Kitty. But they're not me. Because I like a different GL.

It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 3

Intermission: Hangin' With Beetle (pt 1)
with special bonus: Vic Walks In Two Worlds

In 1981, after thirteen years of surviving on licensed comics, Charlton was falling apart. A new volume of Charlton Bullseye was launched to feature new talent and hopefully strike gold, and the first issue went to writer Benjamin Smith and artist Dan Reed, who decided the thing Charlton needed was something it already had.

It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 1

Ditko: Vic the Enforcer (pt 1)

In the mid-60s, after his falling out with Marvel, Steve Ditko returned to Charlton, for whom he'd earlier co-created Captain Atom. In addition to working on that character, Ditko created two new ones who would prove to be among the more enduring of the Charlton heroes, and he featured them in the same book. Carrying the title was Ted Kord, Ditko's successor to the classic Fox Features Hero, but it isn't Ted that brings us here today.

Blue Beetle #36 One Scan
Now that the Great Disaster has passed I feel the urge to post a tidbit from Blue Beetle #36. I left it out of the BB post I made before the Great Disaster.
