DONâ€™T LOOK AT THE COVER! Issue #25 concludes a huge story arc that begin two years ago when Jamie Reyes became the latest in a growing list of heroes who would be the Blue Beetle.

But damn it if the story isnâ€™t potentially ruined by the cover.

If you thought the last issue of DCâ€™s Blue Beetle rocked your socks off, then you are going to love how everything falls into place in the latest battle with those bastards from the Reach.
