Sure, the first batch of DC’s Rebirth titles have focused mostly on the A-listers, but one of the more interesting comics is finally about to hit shelves. Want a peek?

DC Comics is set to release Blue Beetle: Rebirth No. 1 this week, putting a fresh spin on the story of teenager Jaime Reyes and his powerful scarab. Throw in some corporate conspiracy fun with Kord Industries, and this could be one of the most interesting titles on the roster. DC doesn’t have a lot of teenage heroes running around right now in solo books, so hopefully Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins’ Blue Beetle can shake things up.

Here’s the series’ synopsis:

Lost in the desert with no memory of the past few years, teenager Jaime Reyes must find his way home again—but when he reaches his town, he’s shocked to find it abandoned and in the hands of government officials…officials who are very interested in the Blue Beetle and the scarab that gives him his power! How can Jaime find his family and uncover the secret behind the town’s seizure—and why Kord Industries is helping keep the world from learning the truth?

The first issue of Blue Beetle: Rebirth No. 1 hits shelves tomorrow.
