Meet The Mighty Crusaders – A Golden Age Team Returns To Archie Comics

by Hannah Means Shannon

This week, Archie Comics launched a new ongoing series for The Mighty Crusaders, a superhero team with a long history. The series was originally written by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and had various incarnations in the 80’s and 90’s. Now they’re back–and all set for new challenges and adventures.

Written by Ian Flynn, with art by Kelsey Shannon, colors by Matt Herms, and letters by Jack Morelli, The Mighty Crusaders kicks off with “Back in the Saddle”, where a “prehistoric threat” endangers Washington D.C. and an “ancient evil” starts a plan in motion.

Covers on issue #1 are by Kelsey Shannon and Michael Dow Smith:
