Boosterrific Review: Blue Beetle battles Chronos in this cliche of a super hero comic book featuring dinosaurs and deathtraps which are sadly not quite as exciting as this sentence would suggest. A passable, but not historically memorable, issue.

Even with what should have been a fun story, the Blue Beetle comic really did not take off. This comic was dull and did nothing in the long run for the character or the series. Any surprise the plug was pulled not long after?
