Marvel's Ghost Rider Returns In Stunning Art For New Series

Warning! Potential spoilers for Ghost Rider #1 by Marvel Comics

Marvel's original Ghost Rider is returning for a brand new series from Marvel Comics and the publisher has just shared a stunning new cover for the series. In a new variant cover by InHyuk Lee for Ghost Rider #1, Johnny Blaze makes a fiery return in his classic costume. The image should have readers and fans of the Ghost Rider incredibly excited for what's to come next for the hero.

Last month, Marvel Comics revealed 2022 would be the 'Year of the Vengeance,' as they promised big things were in store for the different versions of Ghost Rider in the Marvel Universe. Currently, there are a handful of active Ghost Rider's in the comics, including Robbie Reyes, who's currently a part of the primary Avengers team, Kushala, currently starring in her own Infinity Comic at Marvel Unlimited, and Johnny Blaze, who was last prominently featured during Marvel's King in Black event. Additionally, the Year of Vengeance promotional image teased more Ghost Riders, including the Cosmic Ghost Rider, Danny Ketch, and the Ghost Rider of 1,000,000 BCE.

Marvel Comics recently revealed Benjamin Percy and Cory Smith would team up for a new Ghost Rider series starring Johnny Blaze. The series is set to bring the character "back to basics" as Blaze will have a "perfect life," including a wife and two kids who love him and a job at an auto repair shop in a small town. However, Blaze will be plagued by nightmares of monsters and have "bloody visions" when he's awake. Blaze will deal with his inner Spirit of Vengeance trying to break free and take control of him. Check out a stunning new variant cover from InHyuk Lee for Ghost Rider #1, which features Blaze in his classic costume.

As part of the 50-year celebration of Ghost Rider at Marvel Comics, the publisher is releasing many new covers for the new series' first issue. The artists who will tackle their own variant covers for the series include Skottie Young, Peach Momoko, Taurin Clarke, Adam Kubert, Ryan Stegman, and Jorge Fornes.

It's nice to see Ghost Rider, especially the original Johnny Blaze version, get his own series at Marvel Comics again. While the other Ghost Riders currently appearing in different comics deserve the spotlight as well, it always feels weird when the most recognizable version of the character doesn't have his own ongoing series. For readers who want to pick up the new InHyuk Lee variant cover for Ghost Rider #1, it arrives in comic book stores in February.
