Mighty Crusaders

The mightiest team of superheroes are back! A throw-down with a prehistoric terror in the heart of Washington D.C. sets the stage for the dramatic return of a wayward hero! Meanwhile, half a world away, a sinister plan begins to awaken an ancient evil!

Right from the start, this comic’s pacing really stood out. Ian Flynn starts with a great action scene that also effectively introduces all the Crusaders and reveals their powers. We also get a sense of everyone’s personality and ‘voice’ through some really good dialogue and character interaction. It’s a classic superhero brawl that really brought a smile to my face.

The story also cuts to a building mystery in the desert that really works well too. Again we are given enough information without falling into exposition. This scene has enough menace and intrigue to keep us interested. It is also the part of the story that ends the comic on a cliffhanger; it makes you want to pick up the next issue.
