Quick question, I've seen the Mighty Crusaders' comic. Is it reprints or an ongoing monthly? And, if it is a monthly can you give me a review of a current issue.

They started in January 1940 with MLJ's Pep Comics #1, but they weren't a team.
In 1959 at the dawn of the silver age Joe Simon and Jack Kirby restated the heroes but they recreated the Shield (much as DC would do with the Flash) and creating a new hero the Fly in Advrntures of the Fly. If you would like to read the Fly comics they are all on the internet (see might links above and go to Fly Papers)
The team started as a back up in The last issue of Advenures of the Fly, comtinued in the title when it was retitled Flyman. Then they had their own title The Mighty Crusaders 1-7 in 1965 with stories by Superman creator Jerry Siegal the sceond age of Mighty Crusaders ended in 1967.
In the 1980's they relaunched with Red Circle Comics and there were 13 issues.
In the 1990's DC published them in their Impact Comics line since then they have only been guest stars in the Archie Comics, but Archie is trying to sell them to Holywood.
Our friend Scott index the Mighty Crusaders at the link below.
I hope that helps

So, there's no new comic out. I thought I'd seen a title Mighty Crusaders a couple of weeks ago at my comic book store. Hmmm. Maybe it was a reprint or some such.
