America’s 1st Patriotic Comic Book Hero, The Shield

    (Archie, 2002)
™ and © Archie Publications

There was a time when Archie Publications didn’t publish Archie and the company was known as MLJ Publications named after the initials of the three original owners. At that time, MLJ published a number of super-hero titles during comic books’ Golden Age, the most memorable of which was The Shield, which originally headlined Pep Comics long before Archie and the gang. This collection reprints the lead story from Pep Comics #1-5 and reprints Shield Wizard Comics #1 in its entirety representing The Shield’s earliest adventures.
