Thanos' Cosmic Ghost Rider Lands Solo Comic

Cosmic Ghost Rider solo series

Marvel Comics' newest fan-favorite character is about to embark his very own solo adventure: Cosmic Ghost Rider, aka Frank Castle from the distant future, will star in limited series written by his co-creator, Donny Cates.

The Cosmic Ghost Rider debuted in November in Thanos #13, by Cates and artist Geoff Shaw. His striking look mixed both the futuristic and the hellish, and his bonkers attitude made him a quick standout in a memorable series. The character is set to receive an origin story in Thanos #16, which goes on sale Wednesday.

Although no artist has been announced for the miniseries, the announcement did come with a new look at the character in all his flaming glory by superstar artist Mike Deodato Jr.

The limited series is only the latest announcement from Marvel's "Fresh Start," a company-wide relaunch that promises to put the focus back on classic and beloved characters like Thor, Iron Man and the X-Men.
