Marvel’s Secret Wars Unleashes the GHOST RACERS – Preview

Marvel continues to expand Battleworld with more Secret Wars titles. This time the Ghost Riders will face off in all-out, high-speed warfare in Ghost Racers #1. Writer Felipe Smith and artist Juan Gedeon bring the Spirits of Vengeance together this May. Robbie Reyes, Johnny Blaze, Danny Ketch, Alejandra Blaze and more will battle it out for each others souls.

“This is the book that every GHOST RIDER fan is going to dig,” says Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “We’re not losing the heart and soul of the concept—the human drama of holding the demons at bay—especially with Robbie Reyes, but by God we’re leaning into the vehicle design, speed and hellfire of it all. It’s visual dynamite.”

Paniccia is not kidding about the visuals. Take a look at these pages! This is going to be one hell of a ride. Marvel is really having fun with these Secret Wars books. Screw it… All I can say is keep ’em coming.

It’s visual dynamite.”

Welcome to the scorching hot track of the most popular arena on Battleworld – for the one and only spectacle known as the GHOST RACES!

All in the name of the top prize. Win the Ghost Races – earn temporary freedom from the Arena. But what happens to the unlucky and unholy losers?

“The designs from Juan Gedeon are incredible,” continued Paniccia. “The Riders are recognizable but we’ve pushed them to the extreme and that’s what’s getting everyone around the office, the creators working on this—and the few people who’ve seen sneak peeks—so excited. These are such wicked twists on Johnny, Danny, Alejandra and more you’ll lose your @%$#. You’ve never seen GHOST RIDERS like this before!”

Robbie Reyes, Johnny Blaze, Danny Ketch, Alejandra Blaze and many, many more step into the arena for all-out, high-speed warfare.
