With Final Order Cutoff approaching on Monday, Marvel Comics has released a trailer for the upcoming Ghost Rider #1, the relaunch focusing on Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch by writer Ed Brisson and artist Aaron Kuder, set to hit stores on October 2nd.
"We could not be more excited about Ghost Rider #1," says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Chester B. Cebulski. "It's a character that we've always wanted to launch a new series to go in and reexamine who is the Ghost Rider, what is the Ghost Rider, but we knew we needed the right team."
Of course, Marvel has never met a character that they didn't want to launch a new series with. The publisher relaunches its titles roughly twice a year to get those sweet number one issue sales. That said, writer Brisson made a point of explaining that the series will respect past Ghost Rider continuity while remaining accessible to new readers.
"We are going to catch readers up really fast," Brisson promised. "Anybody new to Ghost Rider mythology, we're doing it in a way that does not disregard any Ghost Rider history but instead builds on it in a way that I think is very exciting."
"You don't have to know anything about the characters to pick up this book and enjoy it," said Cebulski.
Check out the trailer below, which also features a look at interior art from the series.
