Archie's Red Circle Comics Rebranded as "Dark Circle Comics"

Archie Comics announced that it will be rebranding its Red Circle Comics line. Red Circle has been the home of their superhero comics line. Most recently, they published comic books featuring the Fox and the New Crusaders, the latter being more targeted towards younger readers.

Starting in early 2015, Red Circles will become Dark Circle Comics. Dark Circle will feature "dream team" creator team-ups doing more mature stories featuring the company's super hero characters. They will focus on short story arcs that can later be republished as trade paperback collections. These will not be heavy continuity-driven books, but they will pull characters and scenarios from the vaults of Archie Comics.

I imagine that we will see more of the Fox, but I really want to see the Hangman back in action. It would also be cool to see the Wizard and the original Steel Sterling. And while we are at it, how about a homoerotic storyline featuring the recently-outed Inferno the Flame Breather!!

Needless to say, these books will be placed on my pull-list.
