Author Topic: My reaction on the upcoming miniseries ARCHIE SUPERTEENS VS. CRUSADERS  (Read 842 times)

When I heard that that the upcoming miniseries called Archie Superteens vs Crusaders,I was amazed because it would be about the superhero version of the Archie gang teaming up with the golden/silver age version of the crusaders in an alternate Archie universe.

However I think that this miniseries should have belonged to the Archie Action brand because you see the Archie action brand focuses on Action and Adventure so without Sonic and the now ended Cosmo ,I think maybe  Archie Superteens vs Crusaders should have been used for the Archie Action brand instead,So that this brand will involve the action/adventure version of the Archie characters like Explorers of the unknown,Archei the barbarian and the superteens opposite to Archie horror where it focuses on the horror genre of the archie characters like Afterlife with Archie for example.

I need a LINK, terrence!  Best news in forever if true... but so much so, that it has the air of "too good to be true" -- it seems counter to pretty much all the existing sales trends of the current marketplace.  In my mind's eye, an idealized version of this project would have Dan Parent drawing the pages on which the Superteens primarily appear, and Fernando Ruiz drawing the pages on which the classic Mighty Crusaders primarily appear, but this is probably TOO much of a fantasy, too much wishful thinking for anything close to that. I just hope that when I discover the actual creative team it doesn't ruin things for me, because when someone says there's going to be a Harley & Ivy meet Betty & Veronica series, it just sounds too good to be true, but when it actually happened, the reality of it fell far short of very good at all, in truth.

EDIT: Okay, I just googled it.  The creative team is: Ian Flynn, Kelsey Shannon, Gary Martin, David Williams, Gary Martin, and Jack Morelli. No specific credits mentioned, but I know Flynn is the writer (so far, so good), Gary Martin is an inker (and a good one), and of course Jack Morelli is ACP's grand old master of lettering (all sounds great so far)...

So that leaves Kelsey Shannon and David Williams as pencillers. Kelsey Shannon did a good job pencilling the most recent incarnation of the Mighty Crusaders, so no problem there... Which leaves David Williams, I guess, as the primary penciller for the Superteens pages. And... posted images already show that we're dealing with the New Riverdale Archie and friends, so my flights of idealized fantasy about the version I'd really LIKE to see are dashed.

I can't not buy it, but the fact that it's not the classic Archie Superteens has already downgraded whatever enthusiasm I might have had at just hearing the book's title. That means that the closest I'll be able to get to my fantasy version of this project is if there's a Dan Parent cover variant on an issue somewhere along the way, and/or a blank sketch variant which I'd be able to use to commission a drawing from Dan and/or Fernando Ruiz.

And I agree with you, an Archie Action (or "Archie Adventure Series") imprint could be utilized as a way of reviving concepts that would have fit within the framework of the old LIFE WITH ARCHIE series, like the Superteens, Explorers of the Unknown, Jughead's Time Police, The Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E., Agents B&V, or Archie the Barbarian -- primarily adventure stories using the Archie characters, leavened with a dash of comedy as a secondary consideration.

Well,On the brightside it takes palce in an alternate world

Sometimes it does feel like (as a comics reader) I'm the one living in an alternate world.  :-\

Yeah me too

Captain Jetpack

I like the idea, but unless it comes out in GN format, I probably won't be getting it.


I just buy Digests & GNs, now.
Personal reasons.
Pie is my favorite Vitamin.

They've actually been pretty good recently about publishing all the trade collections they solicit, and collecting everything published in floppy comic format as a trade paperback later, so it'll probably happen.
