Even though, for whatever reasons, the Ghost Rider movie wasn’t, shall we say, very good, that hasn’t stopped people from moving forward with plans for another one. Nor has it stopped Marvel from continuing to feature the character in comic book form which, as you will see from this preview for the upcoming comic book Shadowland: Ghost Rider #1, is a pretty cool way to do it.
Written by Rob Williams with art by Clayton Crain the “red-hot comic blockbuster of the summer, Shadowland, continues.” In the book, the spirit of Vengeance makes his debut after being summoned by the Kingpin. In an attempt to change the tides of war, Ghost Rider must travel to Japan and take on the unrelenting might of the secret ninja organization known as The Hand.
So let’s get this straight: Ghost Rider goes to Japan to take on Ninjas? Sounds pretty awesome to me.
Can’t wait until this book goes on sale which, by the way, is on September 15th. In the meantime, check out some preview pages for it after the jump.
