Readers catching up with Archie’s Red Circle superheroes known as the “New Crusaders” in print have one more turning point issue in the series’ opening saga to go, but whether you’ve read the full story online or not, it’s well known at this point that the teenage team is in for a rough future. Starting in April, the series will enter its second phase as a day-and-date monthly comic with “New Crusaders: Dark Tomorrow.” Today, Archie shared an exclusive first look at the cover to May’s issue #2 by artist Mike Norton.
NEW CRUSADERS: DARK TOMORROW #2
The critically acclaimed NEW CRUSADERS series continues this month with “Hard Lessons” Part One: our teenage heroes continue to reel from all they’ve lost, while trying to return to their “normal” lives at school. The transitions aren’t easy – especially when super-powers are thrown into the mix of high school drama! Meanwhile, the death of a New Crusader has caught the attention of former kid-sidekick and current child services consultant Roy Rossman, who has returned to take the New Crusaders away from Shield! Featuring variant cover art from Eisner-award winning artist Mike Norton!
