Rise From Your Grave… For America! In ‘The Shield’ #4 [Preview]
Hey, you kids are all about the Revolutionary War these days, right? Like, super into Federalist Papers and Hercules Mulligan and all that? Great, because I have some good news for you: Not only is Archie's rebooted version of the Shield back in action with one of the best costume redesigns of the past few years, but it's also taking you into the origins of comics' first patriotic superhero. And it is not the origin you might expect.
The idea of a Shield legacy has been part of the character for a while now, but in Adam Christopher, Chuck Wendig, Greg Scott, Rachel Deering, and Kelly Fitzpatrick's next issue, we're going all the way back to the earliest days of America for a story where the stars are right and the dead are rising from the grave.
Check out a preview below, and don't... waste your shot? Is that right? Am I getting any of this right?
See what I mean? Dark rituals and Satans. Usually that's the kind of Revolutionary War action that you only get from Gotham City.
Here's the solicitation:
