- Cosmic Ghost Rider is back, baby! But with a reputation like his, it’s only a matter of time before the law catches up to the future Frank Castle and tries to put him in chains - too bad for the law, chains are Castle’s weapons of choice these days. Now in an intergalactic prison, the Rider is going to turn his cage into an all-out cage match! Who’s going to be the last alien standing?! Find out in this all new miniseries from Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum (MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: CITY AT WAR) and Scott Hepburn (DEADPOOL)! Plus - Don’t miss out on a brand new short story from the guys who started it all, Donny Cates (ABSOLUTE CARNAGE) and Geoff Shaw (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY)!
Debuting in 2017 in Cates and Hepburn's Thanos #13, Cosmic Ghost Rider was revealed to be Frank Castle from an alternate future who sold his soul to Mephisto while mortally wounded to become the new host for the Spirit of Vengeance. Driven mad by his experiences, the future incarnation of The Punisher became the latest Herald of Galactus in his distant future, imbued with the Power Cosmic before entering the main Marvel Universe.
Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider #1, by Dennis "Hopeless" Hallum and Scott Hepburn, with a backup story by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw, goes on sale in Dec. from Marvel Comics.
