THE MIGHTY CRUSADERS PANEL
In 1940 MLJ Comics, the company later re-branded as Archie Comics, published Pep Comics #1, and created the First Patriotic superhero, The Shield. They would go on to create a pantheon of superheroes including fan favorites like the Black Hood, Comet, Hangman, Jaguar, and many more, collectively known as the Mighty Crusaders. These heroes’ stories have been reprinted in England, France, Germany, and Brazil. They have crossed over to radio, film, and the pulps. Presented here is the 80-year history of the greatest superheroes of the Archie Universe by moderator Rik Offenberger (MLJ Companion) with panelists (in alphabetical order) Dean Haspiel (The Fox), Andrew Pepoy (Archie Comics), Bobby Ragland (AC Comics), JC Vaughn (Gemstone Publishing), and some surprise guests too.
