The Writing

In Blue Beetle #9, Josh Trujillo skillfully navigates the intricate layers of Victoria Kord’s character, evoking a mix of admiration and frustration from readers. Her actions and motives are portrayed in a manner that blurs the lines between heroism and villainy, keeping readers on their toes throughout the issue. The pacing of the narrative is commendable, building anticipation for an impending showdown while laying the groundwork for future story arcs. Meanwhile, Jaime Reyes’s character development remains a highlight, as he continues to deepen his connections with family and friends, making him a relatable and endearing protagonist worth rooting for.

The Art, Color and Letters

Blue Beetle #9 showcases a masterful blend of art, colors, and letters that elevate the comic book experience to new heights. With a focus on providing dual perspectives, readers are treated to a unique glimpse into the minds of both sides of the conflict. From the opening moments, where Victoria Kord’s fear is palpable through Pinnacle’s eyes, to subsequent cool surprises that I won’t spoil, the artistry intensifies the emotional depth of the story.

The action sequences are pulse-pounding, particularly as Brenda faces off against Victoria’s relentless drones in a heart-stopping chase. The art skillfully misdirects readers, keeping them guessing until the very end, adding layers of suspense and excitement. Jaw-dropping splash pages serve as visual marvels, captivating readers with their beauty and intricacy.

Meanwhile, the lettering reaches new levels of excellence, with meticulous attention to detail in font selections, colors, borders, and backgrounds. This attention to detail creates an immersive reading experience that transcends the ordinary, pulling readers deeper into the world of Blue Beetle.
