The Ghost Rider of the 1990's could not have fit better in the decade that made Doc Martins, plaid shirts and Nirvana popular. Unlike the version in the 1970's this version exploded on the scene so fiercely that Ghost Rider instantly became a top tier antihero up there with the currently popular Punisher, Grey Hulk and Wolverine.In fact, those three (along with Spiderman) became the Fantastic Four for a few issues not long thereafter. Texeira's art complemented the dark mood, tone, and inking of the book. This issue was such a surprise that just a month later a second print was issued, one that I bought even though I owned the first print.
Ghost Rider's popularity has ebbed and flowed over the years, but he'll remain a constant in the Marvel universe, and if the rumor's are to be believed he should be featuring in the MCU at some time in the not too distant future. High grades of this book are rare because of the black cover which notoriously highlights imperfections. As of this writing there are only 433 copies of this book that hold the CGC 9.8 grade, which is undeniably low.
This book has only been owned by one person, and likewise the only person to have ever ready the inside has been me; a person who bought the book at Comic's Inc. In Knoxville, TN thirty-one years ago. You'll be the second owner of this book, which by any standard is a nice key-issue which would make a wonderful addition to any collection. I will be certifying my packing by recording the cocooning of the book within bubble wrap and then sealing it inside a 200 lb. The mailer box will then be taped shut with tamper proof holographic stickers, each of which has been stamped with a unique 8 digit serial number.
The only thing that you will have to do is sign for the package when it arrives. If the seals are broken, or the box damaged, simply don't accept it. Otherwise, thank you for your consideration.
