A high speed street race in East LA leads a young man down the fast and furious road of destiny. Amid an East Los Angeles neighborhood full of gang violence and drug trafficking, 18-year old Robbie Reyes explodes onto the scene as the newest Ghost Rider!

"In Robbie Reyes, Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore have created one of the most complex and likable characters to be granted great power — and a great ride! -- and learn the great responsibility that comes with both," says Editor In Chief Axel Alonso. "Reyes comes from a very different zip code than Peter Parker, but his story is universal."

“His vehicle of choice, the automobile, very clearly sets him apart visually,” says series writer Felipe Smith in an interview with Marvel.com “In comparison to his vengeance seeking predecessors, he’s very young and inexperienced in most aspects of life; but as a the product of a harsh inner city upbringing, Robbie’s street smarts, overall distrust for most people, and clear contempt for his violent surroundings make him the perfect host for a Spirit of Vengeance.”

But motorcycles and cars were just the beginning! Robbie has the ability to turn any vehicle into a flaming engine of retribution. And he’ll need it. War is brewing in the criminal underworld. But crime and corruption have a new enemy. With the pedal to the metal, Marvel’s newest Ghost Rider puts vengeance into overdrive!

Who is this new Ghost Rider? And how did he come to possessed with such awesome power? The answers will be revealed when the explosive ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER #1 sets comic shops ablaze this March!

xstryker - 2/20/2014, 7:12 AM
Looks good so far
RetroFit - 2/20/2014, 7:12 AM


Awful. Just awful. Send that 'artist' back to the Cartoon Network where he belongs.
RetroFit - 2/20/2014, 7:14 AM
And no more bike? It's a car now? Ugghhhh...




Wouldn't that technically make him Ghost Driver and not Ghost Rider?


KINGPEN266 - 2/20/2014, 7:17 AM
i kind of like the route they taking.. lol route
MrMartinMarvel - 2/20/2014, 7:21 AM
DAFUQ?
User1134 - 2/20/2014, 7:22 AM
Crap.
theBlueKnight - 2/20/2014, 7:24 AM
Soooo it's "Speed Racer: Spirit of Vengeance" now? And since he's in a car, shouldn't he be called "Ghost DRIVER"? My goodness.
sameoldthing - 2/20/2014, 7:26 AM
It's sad really.
Reinvention is good on lame shit..Ghost Rider on his flaming motorcycle is badass,this is not.
Doopie - 2/20/2014, 7:29 AM
need for speed: ghost rider
RetroFit - 2/20/2014, 7:31 AM
Some idiot Marvel executive saw how much money the Fast & Furious movies were making and thought they had a genius brainwave. They were wrong.
theBlueKnight - 2/20/2014, 7:32 AM
marvel72 - 2/20/2014, 7:32 AM
why call him ghost "rider" when he's not riding anything,he's driving?
Doopie - 2/20/2014, 7:32 AM
Nic does not approve

California - 2/20/2014, 7:33 AM
No thank you. None of that.
KrazyForKomix - 2/20/2014, 7:33 AM
It's time.
And the art is fantastic. I wish there were more strongly, stylized artist out there. All these "uber-realistic" Alex Ross, John Cassiday wannabes is getting tiresome.
HellsHammer - 2/20/2014, 7:36 AM
What the hell?
KrazyForKomix - 2/20/2014, 7:38 AM
oh. I see what you did there. He's DRIVING now . . . not RIDING. But doesn't the name Ghost Rider incorrectly imply that someone or thing is riding a ghost? So it's NEVER been actually accurate, yes?
NicolausCopernicus - 2/20/2014, 7:38 AM
a shitty excuse to evoid copyright issues with Gary Friedrich, shame on you marvel
Desrow - 2/20/2014, 7:39 AM
A Disneyfied Ghost Rider...

SunfireUrA55 - 2/20/2014, 7:39 AM
How did GR get so bad????
HorrorPilot - 2/20/2014, 7:41 AM
That's [frick]ing awful.
malschla - 2/20/2014, 7:44 AM
This looks so bad. I'd rather have them reboot Slapstick.
Ancar - 2/20/2014, 7:53 AM
Man, what the [frick] is happening with comics these days?
jimoakley666 - 2/20/2014, 7:55 AM
This looks amazing. Fuk the haters. He's the latest in a long line of Ghost Riders. Blaze and Ketch are still out there for the "ME NO LIKE CHANGE" brigade.

Isn't that the same jumpsuit Johnny Blaze used to wear in the 70's, with the white bar pattern?
imnotwearinghockeypants - 2/20/2014, 7:55 AM
Not really Ghost Rider, but that art is awesome.
TheClemster - 2/20/2014, 8:00 AM
meh!!!!!!!
Thedarkjediknight - 2/20/2014, 8:08 AM
Horrible all around
FantasticSpidey - 2/20/2014, 8:16 AM
I dig the sort of graffiti art that this has, the head with the hole in it seems kinda weird but the art overall is good.

Still, it's strange to see Ghost Rider in a car. But a hell of a choice of vehicles.
Gdub510 - 2/20/2014, 8:20 AM
Ok so the Hamster ghost rider and the Flaming 8 ball are pretty awesome pics but WtF??? Thats not friggin Ghost Rider RIGHT??? Common!! Blueknight hit it on the head I immediately thought anime Flaming Speed Racer with the firey blow hole in his helmet, woooooooow
Epicboy - 2/20/2014, 8:26 AM
Lol ghost rider as a hamster
MrBlueSky - 2/20/2014, 8:28 AM
I miss the motorcycle, but the car is pretty cool (reminds me of those Road movies from the 70s).

And is it me or does this guy's face reminds me of the Colossal Titan:

Gdub510 - 2/20/2014, 8:28 AM
Like...whY does ghost rider need a hellmet? For protection or his secret identity?
SkullFace616 - 2/20/2014, 8:29 AM
Looks lame and crap. Ghost Rider with no balls.
KeefNCookies - 2/20/2014, 8:31 AM
Just like Nova, gorgeous artwork but just no interest otherwise.
NateBest - 2/20/2014, 8:35 AM
I might have to pick this up for the simple fact that he's driving a Dodge Charger :o)
Jerec350 - 2/20/2014, 8:51 AM
Wow. This just looks like tee-total crap. Horrible, horrible artwork. Ghost Rider meets Fast and Furious? No thanks.
DeadpoolMikeyXD - 2/20/2014, 8:55 AM
You know I like new takes on classic characters. I just can't get over the fact that he looks like a cross between a "Hollow" from the anime/manga Bleach and Speedracer. Still looks good/interesting.
Tevii - 2/20/2014, 8:58 AM
From that top image, it looks like he goes from a human man to a female spirit of vengeance
NinjaKickTheDamnRabbit - 2/20/2014, 8:59 AM
It does look like a Hallow mask from Bleach. I like the character design as Ghost Rider. Idk how I feel about the rest of it.
