And with Ian Flynn. Neat!
>"We wanted to create a book that’s accessible, not mired in a million crossovers and part of a bigger, unfolding story," Goldwater tells Heat Vision about the upcoming series. "For that, we enlisted [writer] Ian Flynn, who’s done a lot of marvelous work for us and has a history with the Crusaders. On art, we have Kelsey Shannon, who did some nice work on the Josie and the Pussycats book recently and has a really clear, modern and welcoming style."
>The result is something squarely aimed at contemporary superhero readers — and maybe some fans who have been scared away from other publishers because of the amount of knowledge needed to follow the story. Goldwater called the series "a lynchpin book that we hope will lead to more spinoffs and expansion for the Dark Circle universe," promising, "You don’t need a PhD in comics to hop onboard. Everything is explained in the first issue. These are beloved, iconic characters and it’s time we dust them off and let them shine for what they are — amazing superhero properties that deserve a bigger spotlight."
>"The Mighty Crusaders is one of those dream projects that you always hope for but never dare expect will actually happen," artist Kelsey Shannon told THR. "The best of the golden age through the lens of the present. That grand scale spectacle and boundless imagination of the great old comics past mixed with the attention to character and emotional realism that we all come to expect from the stories we choose to invest ourselves in today."
>Writer Flynn added, "I’m really excited to return to the Dark Circle heroes and pit them against the greatest challenges they’ve ever faced. I think fans of the classic and newer Crusaders will enjoy our new, high-paced approach to their world!"

Yeah, I'm sure Archie's billionth try at cape books will be a hit.

Bets on how many times the first issue gets delayed?

This looks like if Astro City was bad.

Why is the Shield a chick?

Who's the raccoon babe?

Why is the Fly a chick?

Why is the Comet black?

Who's the twink in blue?

Who's the slit in the background?

Why is the only masculine-looking guy like sixty years old?

I think they're descendents except for the old guy.

On top of that they probably need to do this since the original Golden Age stuff might've ended up in the public domain and with the Penders case showing Archie not having their original documents and that one Harvey Kurtzman story accidentally going in the public domain because Archie forgot to renew it, they probably needed versions they could own outright.

Nah. FF 1-102 is the fondation for the MU and entirely self contained.

If this follows New Crusaders or is similar, then these are the sons and daughters of the originals.

Archie of all the publishers out there should get this.

It does look bland as fuck, and not-carol there front and center is a weird choice.
