GHOST RIDER Becomes GHOST RACERS During SECRET WARS

Robbie Reyes joins other Ghost Riders in the upcoming SECRET WARS book.

No Caption Provided

Strap in. Start your engines. And prepare for terror! Deadly vehicles and deadlier racers unleash their hellish fury upon Battleworld in GHOST RACERS #1 – a brand new Secret Wars series coming this June! Felipe Smith and Juan Gedeon put the pedal to the metal as familiar Spirits of Vengeance duel one other in lethal, cutthroat races!

“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.”

Welcome to the scorching hot track of the most popular arena on Battleworld – for the one and only spectacle known as the GHOST RACES! Enslaved and bound to the arena, cursed souls race at the speed of sin – anything and everything goes. The only rule? No rules! Friendships, loyalties and family bonds will be tested. 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. The stakes have never been higher as the most vicious Spirits of Vengeance ever do battle for they’re very souls! Buckle up for a wild ride this June for GHOST RACERS #1!

Looks very cool, although I defiantly think the car clashes with the theme going on here, it's too bulky. Other then that though looks really good.

The art is nice but the designs seem... I don't know, kinda juvenile for the lack of better word.

I guess I was expecting something more road warrior-kinda grit. You know good old Atomic barbarian vibe

I'm always down for a comic with speed, this should be interesting. Glad Smith's still writing, I love how strong his work is despite being minimalistic.

I feel the same, having a bunch of Ghost Riders together could have opened up so many options and they choose a death race? I can't see how that can progress beyond the first race's end.

As with throwing cannons on top of everything to make it more awesomer, it just left me with a feeling of meh. The Blindfolded-Centaur-with Miniguns, was the silliest of the lot.

It's not for me, but there's lots of others who seem to be looking forward to it, so good on them!

I like that they're making an effort to pull in those outlier characters like Robbie Reyes, for this event and not just sweeping them under a rug until they can be bothered to do something with them, if they even decide to.

Imma be honest, I fully expected characters like Robbie Reyes to just sort of disappear in the wake of Secret Wars (that's not to say it can't still happen, I guess, but at least there'll be some semblance of closure if it comes to that).

How is a death race NOT the most appropriate Battleworld situation for a bunch of Ghost Riders?

@the_mighty_monarch:

Well they can actually be Spirits of Vengeance and right wrongs around the place in an unstoppable flaming road-train of destruction for one thing.

Just having them race and fight each other just seems lazy writing to me. Even if they were in a Deathrace (tm.) against some evil-doers it'd be a bit better.

I guess I'm just sick of hero vs hero battles.

But this is a Battle World where everybody fights each other.

@feartheliving: that's Danny Ketch, the good old PHANTOM RIDER!!!

I also don't get how people hate on the Secret Wars books. Come on, these things all seem really awesome. Gladiator Captain America riding Devil Dinosaur in an endless crusade against a country full of Hulks? HOW AWESOME IS THAT??? All the Ghost Riders (old ones, and they have basically said new ones will show up if you read the interview) you can imagine racing each other? DANNY F%$$ing Ketch? I'M SOLD! With Secret Wars, I believe Marvel is finally doing something special. After it's all said an done, they'll take everything in a new direction, implement things from alternate universes, and hopefully keep the fans happy with self-contained stories, and maybe they'll hold off on having 2 events every year to one BIG event 2-3 years....events don't sell as well as they used to, so Marvel should consider this

One of the Ghost Riders' is a centaur with mini-guns. Yep that makes sense.

I haven't read any of the current Ghost Rider stuff with Reyes. Just not interested in it. However if you're going to do a Ghost Rider Secret Wars tie in a Death Race seems like the best way to go. I doubt this will move the story of Secret Wars along in any way, but it looks like a fun read. All the Riders battling it out in a race to the death. I added literally every Secret Wars and Convergence book to my pull list Wednesday at my Local CB shop. I won't buy every one, but at least I'll have them all set aside so I can cherry pick which 1s I'll be buying. I would get them all if I could, but I just don't have the time to read more than 7-10 books a week :(

I think that long-haired guy in the red cycle is supposed to be Kenshiro (I could be wrong, though)...Still, this is really badass!

@jonny_anonymous:

What I'm getting at is I think it'd be better if the Ghost Riders all teamed up to battle everyone else on Battleworld. Instead of fighting amongst themselves, they have more in common with each other so why fight? Every event in recent memory seems to be heroes fighting each other, despite being on the same team/ looking for the same thing.

Imagine the Riders fighting Dinosaur riding Captain America!

@kritikalmassx: I thought it looked like Kenshiro too.
