After many successful years of working for such publishers as Atlas/Timely (predecessors to Marvel), Archie Comics, and EC, writer/illustrator Al Hartley left the mainstream to help found a Christian publishing company, Spire Comics. Hartley expanded on Spire's usual roster of Bible stories, biographies of inspirational personages, and adaptations of Christian books and motion pictures by getting permission from Archie president John Goldwater to license the Riverdale Gang for 19 titles, released between 1974 and 1982. Moderator Erik Amaya (Rotten Tomatoes) and his panel take a light-hearted look at Archie's strange adventures in the world of faith-based entertainment. Panelists include Jessica Tseang (Robert Kirkman's History of Comics), Pat Jankiewicz (author, A Hulk Companion), Rob Bradfied and Adam Sand (In Your Faith), and Jennifer Joan (Tangled Thread Designs).
