PREVIEWS: "Ghost Rider Finale" And "White Tiger" #3
Marvel Comics has provided CBR News with some advance looks at two of their most anticipated new issues. White Tiger's adventures continue now in issue #3, and "Ghost Rider Finale" sees the conclusion to the shocking cliffhanger of "Ghost Rider" #93 eight years ago!
I remember the plot of GR Finale (#94) being a very hot/rare item online. I read it a couple years ago, and I thought it was decent.
Even though I sold my Ghost Rider comics a few years ago, long before GR made a serious comic comeback and when the movie was still in of development hell, I hope this does well. I was a fan of the series there at the end and was quite pissed when it was axed before the final ish could be published
Heck, I didn't even notice that part of the solicit which says #93 is being reprinted here as well -- so I might very well just pick this up in a couple weeks to show my support! :)
Oh lordy NO! That 1 issue, written by original GR writer Howard Mackie, basically ignored and invalidated Ivan Velez's ENTIRE run!!
1. It's still canon.
2. It didn't invalidate the entire run, it merely said that it wasn't entirely true (which seems to have been picked up by Way in the recent series)
3. Mackie did it at the request of the editors, not because he had some vendetta against Velez. Read the Mackie interview in the recent Marvel Spotlight Ghost Rider issue.
4. I never really liked Velez's overall take on the character anyway (and I'm glad the series was cancelled when it was, because his future plans for the series were rather awful).
