The superpowered team-up 50 years in the making is finally here! Riverdale’s most unlikely heroes, the SuperTeens, will meet Archie Comics’ flagship hero team, The Mighty Crusaders, in a two-issue crossover event flying to comic shops this Wednesday!

ARCHIE’S SUPERTEENS VS CRUSADERS is a two-issue mini-series by writers Ian Flynn, David Williams, Gary Martin, with art by Kelsey Shannon, Williams, and Martin, and lettering by Jack Morelli. A humorous action-packed crossover, it’s the first-ever meeting of Archie Comics’ more traditional superhero team with Betty, Jughead, and the rest of the Riverdale gang in their own hero identities.
