Sometimes, an older sibling will give a younger sibling a few great comics to read or classic albums to listen to. And sometimes an older sibling will give a younger sibling a demonic curse, the Spirit of Vengeance, and the title of GHOST RIDER!
That’s the dynamic at play as a (more than) reluctant Danny Ketch reunites with his long-lost brother (and current King of Hell), Johnny Blaze, in the brand-new ongoing series—because the Brothers Ghost Rider are back!
But Johnny Blaze isn’t just the King of Hell—he’s the warden too. He’s the first line of defense between the demonic hordes trying to escape the joint and the lords of other Hells making a play for his throne and all the power that comes with it—including a certain evil queen from his past! Meanwhile, Danny Ketch never wanted to be a Ghost Rider, though now that his brother’s in charge downstairs, he must take on the duty of Earth’s Spirit of Vengeance full-time—no matter how much he’d rather be doing anything else…
Following his shocking accession, Johnny Blaze is now the king of the underworld! What challenges does a hero face when he presides over the worst humanity — and inhumanity — has to offer? While Blaze acts as demonic warden down below, fellow Ghost Rider Danny Ketch is tasked with collecting souls above. How does Ketch cope with being forced to serve in a role he despises?
“One thing we’re really diving into is what this really means to [the Ghost Riders’] lives,” says Brisson. “What is the Spirit of Vengeance? Where does it come from? Why does it possess certain people and not others?…
What’s the mythos of the Ghost Rider character? Those are the questions that we’re going to answer in this series for fans, finally,” promises Cebulski.
The devil’s bounty hunter returns! Ghost Rider streaks out of the underworld on his flaming motorcycle — with a skull to match — in an all-new ongoing series. Now, take one hell of a ride in a new trailer featuring Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski, Assistant Editor Chris Robinson and Writer Ed Brisson discussing the latest comic from Ed Brisson and Aaron Kuder that may redefine the Marvel Universe’s supernatural underbelly for a brutal new era when GHOST RIDER #1 hits your local comic shop Oct. 2nd.
