DC Comics has announced the story for Blue Beetle #21 will be bumped to issue #22, with a fill-in story taking its place.
BLUE BEETLE #21 now will feature a story written by Justin Peniston with art by Andy Kuhn (Firebreather) and a cover by Rafael Albuquerque. In this story, Jaime Reyes gets a shot at punishing the man who crippled his father — only to discover he’s in line behind the Spectre, making for one of the young hero’s hardest choices yet!
BLUE BEETLE #21 is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 28.
BLUE BEETLE #22 now will feature a story written by John Rogers with art and cover by Rafael Albuquerque, originally scheduled to run in issue #21. In this story, Jaime Reyes gets an extra boost from the Beetle legacy via Ted Kord’s gadgets and Dan Garrett’s niece as he uncovers the Reach’s plan for mind-controlling Earth!
BLUE BEETLE #22 is scheduled to arrive inn stores on December 26.
The story originally scheduled to appear in issue #22 now will run in issue #23, which will be solicited in the November Previews for January in-store.
I’m a little behind on my Blue Beetle issues, but it doesn’t look like the bump in story is going to be in the middle of a big arc. It looks like the company is actually doing something right here, offering a fill-in issue and getting back on schedule with the next issue as opposed to bumping the climax of an arc to some point in the future.
