This comic is filled with stories of the Blue Beetle and Yarko the Great.  The First half is Blue Beetle stories.  The first is the origin of the Blue Beetle.  All the rest of the Blue Beetle tales are reprints from Mystery Men Comics.  All of Yarko's stories are reprints as well from Wonder Comics and Wonderworld Comics
Between the Blue Beetle tales and the Yarko tales is a written story of the Blue Beetle called Death Rides On Horseback.  It is about a cop killer in New York City who kills thirty policemen.  The Blue Beetle nearly one of them.
The Origin of the Blue Beetle

In the origin tale Dan Garret (Blue Beetle) is born and his father Michael Garret raises him alone from the day he was a little boy.  This is due to Dan's mother dying of the flu.  Michael is a good father and saves up for his son to go to college.
