Ghost Rider + Wolverine will team up this summer in ‘Weapons of Vengeance’

Two Marvel anti-heroes reunite courtesy of writer Benjamin Percy and artist Geoff Shaw.

Writer Benjamin Percy has been tearing it up in the pages of Ghost Rider and Wolverine, and come this summer he’ll bring the two characters together for Weapons of Vengeance.

The event will kick off, naturally, with an Alpha issue, titled Ghost Rider/Wolverine: Weapons of Vengeance. Drawn by Geoff Shaw, the Alpha issue will recount the first encounter between Johnny Blaze and Wolverine.

“Wolverine is metal. Ghost Rider is metal. Together, their adamantium and chrome weigh in as HEAVY METAL!” Percy told Marvel.com. “You know how Metallica and Iron Maiden have toured together, shredded out songs, wailed on music videos? This is a little like that. I write the sheet music that Geoff Shaw brings to pyrotechnic, guitar-smashing life. You’re in for a head-banging good time, I promise.”

Ghost Rider(s) blaze into a new series this fall

Ed Brisson and Aaron Kuder bring Danny Ketch and Johnny Blaze together for a new title.

Danny Ketch and Johnny Blaze will once again helm their own title, as Marvel prepares to launch Beware the Ghost Rider in October.

For some bonkers reason, Johnny Blaze is currently the king of Hell in the Marvel universe, so the role of Earth’s Spirit of Vengeance falls back to Danny Ketch. Ed Brisson and Aaron Kuder will team up on the new title.
