    Cool!
    thanks for the tip FH...i also noticed this:

    UPCOMING: OCTOBER 2005
    GHOST RIDER # 1 DIRECTOR'S CUT
    Written by Garth Ennis
    Pencils & Cover by Clayton Crain

    This all-new expanded edition reprints GHOST RIDER #1, plus a hefty helping of high-octane DVD-style extras - including Garth Ennis's original series proposal; published and unpublished cover sketches by Clayton Crain; and a soup-to-nuts behind-the-scenes featurette detailing the progression from script to thumbnail to final art.
    48 pages :: Parental Advisory :: $3.99


    now why couldnt they have had those extras on the original 1st issue? Lame marketing attempt by Marvel if you ask me. seems they are trying to go the same route many companies are doing w/ their dvd releases :down :mad:

    but anyway...this caught my eye...."Parental Advisory"....heh.
    i think this is the very first time a GR comic is being released w/ that warning. very nice :up:

    How many of the original comics do you think they will reprint?

    I don't think a reprint of this comic is necessary... but they know all of us freako's are gonna buy it.

    I hope they don't reprint the entire series again. I wanna see some new stuff.

    MSJ " but I do understand that we both thought up the same idea -- that the Ghost Rider is a bounty hunter from Hell!"

    So it was not a carefully planned coordination between comic and movie.....but a coincidence....Amazing luck....one might even say unbelievable.

    Yeah, it's pretty neat that they both have the same kinda concept... though it's a little disappointing that they're not related more than that. It may confuse some people...

    I just found out from this thread; http://www.superherohype.com/forums/showthread.php?t=193376

    ... that the comic comes out in the first week of September; (On-Sale 9/7/05). Yee-haw!!

    Hey, man.
    The last time GR has an ongoing series was in 1998. On february that year the title was cancelled, in the 93th issue.
    A sad day to us all, hardcore GR fans.
    But it was not the worse part, no sir.
    The series ended without an end. The final issue of the last saga, "The last temptation", who explains the origin of the Spirit of Vengeance, would happens in # 94, unpublished, on a very sadistic move of Marvel comics.
    Absolutely no respect for the fans.
    He returns in 2000-2001, on the "Hammer Lane", a six-issue mini-series.
    Very bad stuff, believe me.
    And as it seems, the triumphant return will happens in september 2005, by Garth Ennis and Clayton Crain, once again, 6-part mini-series.
    Of couse we all want a ongoing series, but it´s a start.
    Well, i hope it help you.
    Take care.

    By the way, if you interested, you can read the unpublished script for Ghost Rider #94 and see a image of what the cover would have been here;

    I'm still so pissed that they never even bothered to print it. So freakin' sad.

    pretty trippy lookin there...
    i assume that in the comics the demons will look mostly human so it can be somewhat similar w/ the demons in the movie. cant wait for the book now.....just a few more weeks though.

    I'm not sure if they had the movie in mind at all when developing this comic, from reading MSJ's comments. It's interesting that it's happened that way though.

    A few short weeks indeed. I can barely wait...

    I hear that. I think all of us here are foamin' at the mouth for the first week of September.
     
  21. I never really followed Ghost Rider or liked the character much. I picked up a copy of Ultimate Spider-Man Annual at my local comic shop, and I received a copy of Comic Shop News. After reading the interview with Clayton Crain, I must say that I becamse a bit more interested in the title (maybe because my birthday is in September, and i'll be able to afford the book). Anyways, I find there is more fun in jumping into a book from its begining, than later on when you have a lot of ground to cover. I know the Ghost Rider is a pretty old character. For the longest time, I didn't even know that Dan Ketch had died, leaving John Blaze to return to being the only Ghost Rider. Basically, i'm just trying to find out if i'm going to have to study up on the character, or if thie new Ennis/Crain run is going to be an all new take on an old character. Even if it is going to be backstory heavy, i'll probably pick the book up, just because I like the idea of collecting a six issue run. Comic values have jumped up lately. House of M #1's Quesada variant cover is worth $30. New Avengers #2 is worth $80. How much could a Ghost Rider mini series be worth down the road? I think that is a nice feeling...to own something of worth, because of its mark on history.

    I don't think it's a restart, it seems to me that John Blaze has finally run out of time and his soul was collected by Mephisto to remain in hell for all time. so I guess it's more of a continuation. The previous GR was not Zarathos which is the demon that posesses Blaze, I hope they do touch on just how Mephisto did finally get Blaze though.
     
  23. Thank you for the information.
