Published by DC Comics, The Web has seen the return of the Red Circle Heroes - a group of crimefighters who appeared on the pages of Archie Comics over the course of the '40s through the '60s.
"I actually do have some affection for these old characters. My exposure to them was through a copy of Archie's Super Hero Comic Digest #2, which I still own a copy of," Guggenheim told CBR.
"In the case of the Black Hood, there was pretty much a blank slate to work with. Thus, it became more of an exercise in integrating the character into the world - particularly the Web character - that the other writers had developed."
Guggenheim's run on the Red Circle line has now ended with Matthew Sturges taking the reins from issue #6 in February. However, the scribe will continue to write for DC, penning its Action Comics series.
The Black Hood reappears in The Web #5, which is available now courtesy of DC Comics.
