Item DescriptionHere's a glimpse back to the early 1970s and the early days of Marvel's best-known 'Tryout Title': MARVEL SPOTLIGHT!
In the Fall of 1971 Stan Lee and Roy Thomas both thought it would be great to re-introduce a Western comic into their line-up, but they needed an inexpensive way to test fan reaction and the viability of an ongoing title. They dreamed up MARVEL SPOTLIGHT, and kicked it off with the mysterious Old West hero, RED WOLF. Soon after, Roy Thomas shifted into a higher gear and presented WEREWOLF BY NIGHT, with the able assistance of new and exciting artist Mike Ploog and writer Gerry Conway!
After WEREWOLF got it's own title, next up on the tryout spot was GHOST RIDER - another creation of Thomas and Ploog's , and eventually, the longest running series that was birthed in MARVEL SPOTLIGHT.
Johnny Blaze/GHOST RIDER makes his second appearance here in "Angels From Hell!", written by Gary Friedrich. While roaming the streets at night, GHOST RIDER is confronted by a group of bikers called Satan's Saints. With no option but to fight them, GHOST RIDER easily defeats them, however their leader offers him membership in the club, Needing a place to stay for the night, GHOST RIDER agrees.
At the gang's headquarters, GHOST RIDER/JOHNNY BLAZE narrowly avoids becoming a sacrifice to the devil! He manages to reunite with his girlfriend Roxanne, and saves her from the gang's fury. But after deciding he is putting her in jeopardy with his alter ego, he leaves her . . . at which time the gang is able to kidnap her to be used as a sacrifice herself!!
Wondeful artwork by Mike Ploog early in his career! After 6 appearances here in MARVEL SPOTLIGHT, GHOST RIDER got his own title in September 1973 and continued to issue #81 in June 1983.
