    Default Sturges Picks Up the Scarab Running in "Blue Beetle"

    Matthew Sturges (Jack of Fables, House of Mystery) steps in to save the day �" and more importantly, the scarab as the new writer of DC's Blue Beetle. We spoke with him about the series and his desire to write the corpse of Ted Kord.

    This seems like a good a place as any to ask. Anyone plan on getting the Spanish issue of Blue Beetle? I'm tempted to get it just so I don't have a break in the run, but I don't speak the language.

    To me he seems like a man who understands his job and hopes that he can do good.

    I must say that it would be interesting to see how he is truly going to write the series after Rogers and the fill-in arcs.

    They are putting the script in the back of the book so you will have an english translation.

    I think it's an awesome idea.

    Good interview. Seems like Matthew really gets Jaime and the rest of the cast. I'm sticking with this book through whatever may come, as Jaime is one of the best comic characters created in the last ten years. Here's hoping this and the Spanish issue get more people to check out the title.

    I just randomly read this story. Hadn't been a fan of the book or anything. Now I am and I'm really quite interested in reading the early books now.

    Indeed. The sales figures seem perilously low, which is a shame.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Not really. Apparently Blue Beetle trade sales offsets the comic sales.

    I don't know... that last arc is gonna be a hard act to follow. Fortunately, Will Phifer will drop the bar a bit. LOL

    It's the Manhunter thing. I think DC really needs to take note that the two most chattered about characters they have with new fans are Manhunter and Blue Beetle...


    Just a point.

    Defintily pick up the trades, they're worth it. A lot of the early stories end up paying off in the last arc as well, so volumes 1-4 will read pretty smoothly once 4 comes out.
