Preview: ‘The Shield’ by Rob Liefeld for Archie Comics

 

America’s first patriotic superhero THE SHIELD returns this June in a new one-shot comic that kicks off a re-imagined MIGHTY CRUSADERS mini-series from Archie Comics and legendary writer/artist Rob Liefeld.

 

 

The four-issue series of one-shots spanning the MIGHTY CRUSADERS assortment of superhero characters begins on June 30 with the launch of THE MIGHTY CRUSADERS: THE SHIELD #1, featuring variant covers by Liefeld and a host of renowned industry talent.

 

This series of action-packed one-shots will shine a spotlight on the deep bench of superhero characters in the Archie Comics library, who share a long and storied history alongside the company’s more familiar teen & romance publications, while remaining open and accessible to new readers.

 

 

Archie Comics is working with comic shop retailers to host virtual events, create exclusive variant covers for their stores, and deliver unique one-of-a-kind items timed to THE SHIELD ONE-SHOT’s launch. Additional information for retailers will arrive in an upcoming Archie Comics Retailer Newsletter blast.
