"Blue Beetle" writer also a fan

I talked this morning with Jai Nitz, who’s writing next month’s “Blue Beetle” No. 26 — a special Spanish-language issue. Nitz’s big message: You should be reading “Blue Beetle,” not just his one issue, but every month.

He said he was dubious when DC killed off the previous Blue Beetle, Ted Kord, and set up El Paso teenager Jaime Reyes as the new Blue Beetle. “I did what I said you should never do,” Nitz said — write off a new title sight unseen. But he’s become a fan of the book after all. “It really is a good book,” he says.
