Marvel Comics has sent us a sneak peek of Garth Ennis and Clayton Crain’s Ghost Rider: Trail of Tears. This is the prequel to Ghost Rider: Road to Damnation, and takes place in the aftermath of another Civil War.
Here’s how Marvel describes the issue:
Travis Parham was a soldier, injured while serving his country, but now, a family of former slaves is caring for him. After recuperating in their home, Parham goes west, finds himself a plot of land, and settles down. But when Parham returns to visit the family, he finds them murdered.
Determined to get revenge, he hunts down the men responsible, one by one, but it seems he is always too late. Someone or something is cutting down the murderers before Parham can reach them. Who is this mysterious spirit of vengeance and what does he seek?
Ghost Rider: Trail of Tears #1 (of 6) will be on-sale February 7, 2007 for $2.99.
