In 1939 MLJ Comics, the company later rebranded as Archie Comics, published Blue Ribbon Comics and entered the world of superheroes with Bob Phantom. They would go on to create a pantheon of superheroes, including the first patriotic superhero the Shield and fan favorites like the Comet, Hangman, the Fly, Lancelot Strong, and many more. These heroes have appeared in both Archie Comics and DC Comics. They have been reprinted in England, France, Germany, and Brazil. They have crossed over to radio, film, and the pulps. Presented here is the 80-year history of the greatest superheroes of the Archie Universe from the people who brought you the MLJ Companion : Rik Offenberger (Archie Comics), Paul Castiglia (Archie Comics), Jon B. Cook (TwoMorrows Publishing), and John Morrow (TwoMorrows Publishing), as well as writer and movie producer Michael Uslan (Batman) and Golden Age comic expert J.C. Vaughn (Gemstone Publishing).
