3 years ago @marvelentertainment asked me if I’d be interested in creating an entirely new Ghost Rider for a new audience having 2 stipulations in mind: “Younger” & “Drives a CAR”.
The car sold me because I knew fans would HATE the idea of a Ghost Rider with no motorcycle, so we’d get their attention. All we had to do was create an appealing character they’d want to root for and a story that would entertain. So I created ROBBIE REYES and together with artist @traddmoore & colorist Val Staples released his 1st story arc!
3 years later, Robbie’s been announced as a new character on Marvel’s AGENTS OF SHIELD TV series, to be played by GABRIEL LUNA!
Pretty sweet! The above image was my 1st variant cover for ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER & my first cover for Marvel Comics. Also, a pic of me at the unveiling of the HELL CHARGER at SDCC 2016!
Let’s hope the TV version stays true to the source!
If it’s got skulls and/or flames on it, I’m going to draw it. Big cheer whittingtonb ’s sweet animation and Tradd Moore’s style for the inspiration. The All-New Ghost Rider comics have me hooked and it’s only the first issue.
Here’s a variant for Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s YOUNG AVENGERS #3 (out MARCH 2012) along with some preliminary head sketches of the team! Also, this series is going to be awesome. PICK IT UP. Colors by the amazing Matthew Wilson! The Team: Marvel Boy, Hulkling, Wiccan, Miss America, Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), and Kid Loki.
