When Ghost Rider first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #5, I was absolutely run over (pardon the pun) by Mike Ploog's artwork and character design. Especially intriguing was the cover blurb: Is He Alive or Dead? I sold my original as a kid, but I was able to buy a back issue a few years ago. It's still one of my favorite origin issues ever.
Here are the pencils to a recreation that Ploog did a few years ago, from Pheng Taing on comicartfans.
Marvel Spotlight #8 really showed me the potential of Ghost Rider as a character--by taking him out of the city and pitting him against another brand of magic. It was also cool to see the Ghost Rider--a revamp of a Western character--in an Indian reservation.
Ploog's recreation--also from Pheng Taing--really oomphs up the crazy magic going on here. What lucky guy to have both of these! Nuff said.
