The Press Release:
One of Marvel’s most outrageous breakout characters of the past decade, Cosmic Ghost Rider, will return this March in a brand-new solo series! Announced by Polygon, COSMIC GHOST RIDER will be written by Stephanie Phillips in one of her first works for Marvel Comics along with the upcoming Rogue & Gambit series and drawn by superstar artist Juann Cabal!
Since his 2018 creation by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw, this future version of Frank Castle was a mega hit with fans due to his extraordinary origins and his unique style of dishing out justice! The character’s saga will only get more wild in this upcoming sprawling space adventure with even more shocking twists and turns!
In a far-flung corner of deep space, Frank Castle has eked out a quiet existence, and his days as Cosmic Ghost Rider are finally behind him. But across the universe, a vicious bounty hunter is leaving a trail of bodies in his wake and his name is…Cosmic Ghost Rider?! When Frank’s peaceful existence is shattered, he must suit up once more and face his most savage enemy yet – himself!
“I love the humor and absurdity of Cosmic Ghost Rider, and because he’s a newer character I feel like there’s lots of potential space (pun intended) to push him in new directions,” Phillips told Polygon. “I’m excited to play with Marvel’s cosmic characters and write something that feels really new for me and for Frank Castle as well.”
Be there when Cosmic Ghost Rider unleashes his vengeance across the galaxy once more this March! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told when this character was first introduced I slept on it meaning I let it pass me by and when all was said and done and I had learned more about it I felt that I might have actually enjoyed the weirdness of it all. I remember thinking it connected to some of the 2099 stuff which I always found to be hit or miss but I was wrong. So I admit my background isn’t all that much so I will need to grab a collected edition before diving into the new title. Unless I can find singular issues for a reasonable price. That’s all I’ve got about this one and as I wrap this up I wonder what you all think. Please chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Stay safe out there.
