Polygon had the scoop that Donny Cates and Nic Klein’s creation, Cosmic Ghost Rider, is getting a new ongoing series starting in March 2023. Written by Stephanie Phillips with art by Juann Cabal, the series has the Cosmic Ghost Rider suiting back up to fight himself.
Its been over two years since the last Cosmic Ghost Rider series, although he’s had three miniseries, including Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History and the original series, which launched in 2018 Cosmic Ghost Rider.
“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 via email. “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.”
So what’s Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 about?
VENGEANCE REAWAKENED! In a far-flung corner of deep space, Frank Castle has eked out a quiet existence, his days as Cosmic Ghost Rider 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! Be there for the start of a sprawling space adventure with shocking twists and turns in the saga of Cosmic Ghost Rider!
“Working on Cosmic Ghost Rider means blending absurdity and realism in ways that I don’t think my previous work has allowed me to do,” Phillips said. Cosmic Ghost Rider, along with the upcoming Rogue & Gambit series, will mark Phillips’ debut at Marvel comics. “I also love the chance to explore Marvel’s cosmic side and push Frank Castle in ways we haven’t yet seen.”
