GHOST RIDER #1-12 (Benjamin Percy / Cory Smith)

En 2022, le Motard Fantôme fêtera le 50ème anniversaire de sa création avec le lancement d’une nouvelle série confiée au scénariste Benjamin Percy (Wolverine) et au dessinateur Cory Smith (Conan the Barbarian).

Le #1 sortira en février. La couverture par Kael Ngu :

A voir si la série calera comme celle d’Ed Brisson et Aaron Kuder, très récente encore.

Tu crois qu’elle peut couler une bielle ?

J’espère surtout qu’elle saura passer rapidement la seconde.

Pas très emballant finalement

Tu vas rester sur le bas-côté, comme c’est là.

Johnny Blaze has the perfect life: a wife and two kids, a job at an auto repair shop and a small-town community that supports him… But Johnny isn’t doing well. He has nightmares of monsters when he sleeps. And he sees bloody visions when he’s awake. This life is beginning to feel like a prison. And there’s a spirit in him that’s begging to break out! Benjamin Percy (WOLVERINE, X-FORCE) and Cory Smith (CONAN THE BARBARIAN, CAPTAIN MARVEL) are going back to basics with the Spirit of Vengeance in this extra-sized first issue!

A darkness is rising, and their hunt for answers puts them on a collision course with a mysterious, vengeful motorcyclist. Who is this so-called Ghost Rider, and what does he want? They follow rumors. They follow wreckage. And they discover the dark secrets of a roadside motel.

They are all small towns. The kinds of places you’d never stop at except to get gas. Cars are abandoned. The houses and shops empty, the people seemingly vanished. Where did they go? The park might offer some clues. Among the peanut shells and abandoned stuffed animals, you can almost hear the music of the midway, the laughter - and the screams. Here is a blood-soaked flyer advertising a circus…of crime? Johnny Blaze is on their trail, just as Talia Warroad and the FBI close in on him, as a larger supernatural conspiracy begins to reveal itself.

Johnny Blaze has finally been exorcized of his demonic tumor, but it lives on as something new and sentient, a dark mirror of both him and his bike…a creature known as EXHAUST. As Johnny and Talia Warroad head toward Chicago - a city known for the blood of its slaughterhouses, a city they believe is central to the Shadow Country conspiracy - they’ll be pursued by Exhaust and the dark forces he manifests.

Description: In the blood-soaked tunnels beneath Chicago, and upon the horned altar of Hell’s Backbone, the final fights of The Shadow Country arc will come to a startling conclusion. Blackheart, Exhaust, Zeb and his magicians, Talia Warroad, and the Ghost Rider himself will all crash together – and not everyone is making it out alive. In the aftermath of these battles, a new chapter will begin. Featuring new allies, new threats, and the return of some familiar faces…

Pages: 32.

Price: $3.99.



The F.B.I. has cast out Johnny Blaze and Talia Warroad, maybe because they’re too destructive and unmanageable…or maybe because there is some corruption present that reaches inside the very institution meant to protect us. As Johnny and Talia head down to Savannah to investigate a necropolis, there are hints of old friends and new foes on the horizon. A new chapter of horror is beginning for the Ghost Rider, and Danny Ketch is roaring up to speed in the rearview mirror.
