Did You Know?
Patriotic superhero The Shield was one of MLJ Magazines' most popular characters, before being replaced by all-American teenager Archie Andrews. Both characters debuted in "Pep Comics", an anthology comic book series published by MLJ Magazines/Archie Comics from 1940 to 1987. The Shield debuted in MLJ's "Pep Comics" #1 in January 1940. Archie Andrews and his Riverdale friends debuted in "Pep Comics" #22 in December 1941, and Archie's solo series "Archie Comics" premiered in December 1942. Although The Shield was the ostensible star of "Pep Comics" for its first four years, Archie started regularly sharing the cover with The Shield and other superhero characters starting with Issue #41 (August 1943), and the emphasis began shifting to the increasingly popular Archie. Archie took over as star of the series with "Pep Comics" #49 (June 1944), featuring the added tagline "Starring Archie Andrews!", and in March 1946, MLJ Magazines officially changed its name to Archie Comics, where stories of the Riverdale teens have thrived ever since. The MLJ superhero characters were phased out by the late '40s, but they'd be revived during the 1960s and again in the early 1980s, revamped by DC Comics in the early 1990s, briefly rebooted into the DC universe in 2009-2010, and revived/rebooted again in the 2010s under the Red Circle/Dark Circle imprints of Archie Comics.
