Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Ghost Rider comes the brand-new GHOST RIDER #1. In the revamped edition, we follow the story of the original Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze. Written from the renowned Benjamin Percy who has worked on projects like WOLVERINE and X-FORCE, he joins teams with artist Cory Smith to create a new take on the esteemed story.
We meet Johnny in what seems to be the picture-perfect life; he’s married with two kids working as an auto repair man in a small-town, tightknit community. Although his life may seem to be wonderful as can be, Johnny has an internal urge that is seemingly taking over. Catch his retaliation in the GHOST RIDER #1 trailer.
Percy spoke with SYFY Wire about the piece, where he stated, “This is a back-to-basics approach that focuses (for now) on Johnny Blaze. Where has he been the past few years? You’ll know soon. I can’t tell you too much, or I’ll undercut the suspense and horror. And rest assured: this is a horror comic. Some really unsettling things happen in this first (oversized) issue alone.”
The first issue of GHOST RIDER will be available on February 23, so make sure to snatch up your copy!
