An interesting read, and I’m looking forward to seeing the new/old characters from Archie!
As Newsarama readers probably recall â€” since the comics are barely off the shelves — DC attempted to integrate the Red Circle superhero characters into their own line-up by launching several new ongoings in 2009. That effort arguably failed, since the new line of comics barely lasted a year.
While DC’s attempt didn’t keep past continuity, Archie’s new concept for their Red Circle superheroes does maintain past continuity for the characters, although they will appear in a new comic called The New Crusaders. Yet the biggest difference between DC’s attempt and Archie’s new approach is that these comics are now being branded and distributed specifically for a digital audience.
Through the new subscription service, readers interested in The New Crusaders and other Red Circle characters can sign up for an estimated three to four dollars a month to gain access to new six-page weekly comics, as well as a huge archive of past Red Circle stories.
