QUOTES FROM WRITER DAVID GALLAHER

“I grew up on these characters. My brothers and I had the complete run of Remco action figures and we followed the Impact iteration of these heroes from start to finish. I’ve since developed an encyclopedic knowledge and deep fondness of the Mighty Crusaders and their legacy.”

“It’s a great honor to be a custodian for the Shield. I’m following in the footsteps of Jerry Siegel, JM DeMatteis, Irv Novick, Mark Waid, J. Michael Straczynski, and other incredible talents who have put these characters through their paces. Our story is a hyper-kinetic narrative in the spirit of Three Days of the Condor or the Bourne Identity. It’s been an absolute blast.”

“Archie gave me a lot of flexibility to tell the type of story I wanted to tell. There are plenty of opportunities to blaze new and exciting trails with these characters; this story is the first step. As a creator, this is a sandbox worth playing in, and as a fan, I look forward to more. They are beloved characters whose potential is ready to be unleashed. It’s an incredible opportunity to play in this sandbox.”
