Blue Beetle #15

Blue Beetle #15
Cute. I like the newer, nicer Livewire. Some continuity from Busiek's Action Comics.
But really, nothing happens in this issue. No forward momentum of the plot at all. It teases some movement, and then....the issue ends. That's it. Well, that's not fair. That's not good enough. That's not satisying. That's not good writing. Sure, on the surface, there's nothing wrong with this issue. But when you really think about it, it's nothing but a colossal letdown.
I don't think that it's time yet to have guest writers. Artists are fine as long as they can make the characters recognizable (unlinke Rouleau's guest stint earlier in this title). But if they're not going to move the story along, ditch the guest writers. I want meat. Not gravy. I'd like to say okay, but EH.

Oh, and that cover? Yet another artist who can't draw Superman. What's wrong with you people?
