ATG Comic Review: Archie Superteens Versus Crusaders

So welcome back to the reviews! We had a fun ole time in Ocala, Florida this weekend. We had Ocala Comic Con happening. I unfortunately, was not able to go this year, but I hope next year things have calmed down enough for me to be able to take a bit of time and do some of the more fun things like this. If you did make it to the con, sound off below and let us know what you thought. Our good friends from Vibranium Comics and Games were there this weekend, so if you were there you will have found out what cool peeps they are and why we go back to them time after time. Make sure you check out their facebook and website pages by clicking the banners above and below and just show them some love in return for their awesome job!

This week we saw Tank Girl, which was in our other blog that’s already live on the site, but we also got an equally silly but much more fun comic in the form of another new Archie series. This mini-series is only supposed to be two books long and it is the Superteens Versus Crusaders! This comic was a fun little setup comic for the action that’s going to take place next comic between the two teams. The setup was fun as it introduced a substitute teacher, who turns out to be a supervillain (what teacher isn’t a supervillain to kids though right?). Said Sub goes tearing through the school in a giant mech suit ripping up the campus. Only one team can stop him- The Mighty Crusaders! However, only one of them has shown up so far and he is getting his butt kicked. So Archie and his pals stop and decide to help using their Mighty Morphin Power Ranger type Morphers to become the Super Teens!

So far this opening Salvo is what you would expect from classic Archie. Some good art and some good laughs with a cute story- very enjoyable overall. This is the type of Archie comic I grew up with and love, not the drama crap from Riverdale or the AU Horror stories that so far have just not caught my interest. Now that you know what I thought, I want to hear from you, which type of Archie story do you enjoy and why? Sound off below and let your voice be heard!

  1. I’m not a big Archie fan, but I do read them occasionally (and have been for the last 30 years). The beauty of Archie comics is that there’s something for everyone and have kept their core brand alive and familiar. You pick up the classic Archie line and you know you’re getting a family-friendly humor line. At the same time, the company isn’t afraid to branch out into other areas. I haven’t read “Afterlife with Archie,” but it certainly sounds intriguing. I like these types of books (just as I did “Archie Meets the Punisher”) and will likely check this out. I always liked the Mighty Crusaders, even though they never lasted long. I enjoy reading your blog because you cover many comics off the proverbial beaten path.

    1. Thanks for coming by and enjoying my little opinions on things. As always as a reviewer I will admit that what I do and don’t like doesn’t always mesh with everyone else but hey that’s why i love doing this is to get my own view out and hear what others think as well, As for my doing comics that are a bit more obscure or out there at times you cn thank the good people at Vibranium Comics or Bearded Browncoat Comics (whichever store hs the banner up on the particular blog) With how I work with them I never pick the comics I am going to do….if I did you would see ton of marvel and little else. No these fine people surprise me each week with something new and interesting whether it be a big title from one of the big two or something from some little indie company out there. So whenever you see these blogs these are the comic shop owners themselves saying “here see what you think of this!” Which is why I always give them the shoutouts they deserve as they let me work with them on this little project I thought of one day.I will say the new one from today that I got…which were some from both shops will be 3 new reviews with 2 of them from Marvel and one of them being a major throwback to a crime drama show that I believe was done back in the 70’s but ended up with 2 movies in I believe the late 90’s to early 2000’s. Any ideas what that one might be? If not be sure to keep checking back! We truly appreciate your support of our blog!

      1. Yes. I like reading about comics outside my normal reading patterns because you never know when you’ll discover a new fave. I was a big DC & Marvel fan in my heyday, but I also found cool stuff like E-Man, Megaton Man, and American Flagg.

        1. The only comics I truly followed through on was Archie, but Kev you opened my mind into reading other kinds of comics! I appreciate the opinions you share and I can see we value the same things just by the points you focus on when you share your insights. @Mike, you sound like an avid reader yourself!

          1. I’m glad I was able to help broaden your horizons when it comes to the enjoyment of Comics. I always love being able to bring new things to people to enjoy which is one of the main reasons I do these reviews!
