Improbable Previews: Ike Perlmutter Nears Final Form In Ghost Rider #4

Every so often, comic book publishers send out previews of upcoming comics without any of the lettering finished. The result, while pretty to look at, leaves readers wondering just what the hell is going on in those pages. Well, wonder no more.
