Additional Information

Collector Notes:

(See also Red Circle)

Regular monthly series from DC using a character from Archie Comics.

The licenses for the Shield and the other superheroes of Archie Comics' superhero line were picked up by DC Comics. Referred to as the Red Circle heroes, DC advertised that they would be reimagined by J. Michael Straczynski, who wrote four initial One-Shots, and integrated into the DC Universe.

After the reintroduction of the Shield in the One-Shot by Straczynski, Eric Trautmann wrote this Shield ongoing series that was very well-regarded by readers but ultimately proved low selling, resulting in DC allowing the rights to the Red Circle characters to revert to Archie Comics in 2011.
