some of my favorite comics 23

Mighty Crusaders #13 is another childhood yard sale buy, and it introduced me to Archie's universe of heroes.  As listeners of the podcast know, I'm a fan of these characters (especially in the 1960s series), and Archie is once again bringing the Mighty Crusaders back in 2012.  This comic was so intriguing to me at the time because it was full of colorful, old-timey heroes.  It was drawn in an older style thanks to Dick Ayers pencils, which I enjoyed.  As I said, it was colorful, but in such a way that the colors were full, bright, and fun.  I even loved the lettering stlye by Bill Yoshida.  There was a main story, which the cover advertised, and a back-up story focusing on The Fox by the same creative team.  This was the last issue of this particular series, but I've always been on the lookout for the first twelve issues, of which I own about half as of this writing.  Despite it looking like a kid-targeted series, you can bet I'll be giving the new Archie series a try.
