Archie Comics is pleased to announce that David Gallaher (Only Living Girl, High Moon) will script a new story for THE MIGHTY CRUSADERS: THE SHIELD #1 based on Rob Liefeld’s artwork.
Eric’s take: The Shield is an iconic and historic character. I have not read this yet, but hope Mr. Gallaher’s writing can outweigh whatever Mr. Liefeld brings to the script. Otherwise, based on Mr. Liefeld’s previous written work, we will simply get a rehash of the same two or three character shells, just many decades later.
THE SHIELD #1 goes on-sale at comic book shops and digital platforms on June 30.
