Probably the most interesting cover I’ve seen in a while, but Marvel promises to reveal the origin of the first Ghost Rider in the pages of Avengers #7, which I hope features a detailed story of the flaming mastodon.
Last year, MARVEL LEGACY introduced Odin and his Prehistoric Avengers to critical acclaim, with their story becoming the number one comic in the industry—and now, Marvel invites you to witness the origin of the very first Ghost Rider! Superstar artist Sara Pichelli (Fantastic Four, FCBD Avengers) joins Avengers writer Jason Aaron for this special “one and done” story that takes you back in time to 1,000,000 BC!
“Fans have been intrigued by the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC and the story they represent since Jason first introduced them in the MARVEL LEGACY one-shot last year,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “So this issue represents the first peeling back of the onion to reveal a little bit more about who they are and what they’re about. And it’s a cool and affecting story all by itself, even if you know nothing about the Avengers of 1MBC.”
Avengers #7 is written by Jason Aaron with art by Sara Pichelli and will arrive on September 5, 2018.
