When DC made a point of talking about their character diversity, you would think that Blue Beetle would have been a bit of a lock. As one of the few prominent Hispanic superheroes, Jaime Reyes would be a good choice for a book (not to mention that Jaime Reyes is a good character, period).
It'll be by Tony Bedard and Ig Guara (with inker Ruy Jose - is it just me or are inkers getting a bit short shrift in some of these announcements? Unless a lot of pencilers are inking themselves, which certainly IS possible).
I am glad that Beetle is getting his own book.
