Flashback Product of the Week: 1992 Comic Images Ghost Rider II Spirit of Vengeance


This Friday Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will be released in theaters.  Its been five years since we’ve seen that famous Marvel Comics flaming skull on the big screen.  Ghost Rider has to be one of the darkest antiheroes comic book fans have ever seen.  From a visual perspective, he is one of the coolest looking characters.  This new film looks to be a lot darker than the first.  I look forward to seeing it this weekend.

In 1992, Comic Images released an 80-card set based on Ghost Rider.  There are also 10 glow-in-the-dark inserts for you to look for.  During the 90’s, comic book cards were on fire.  I’m sure there are collectors reading this that remember trading in some of their favorite sports cards for products like this.  Most of those cards have tanked, but a few still hold some value.  Sealed boxes can be found for under $10.00.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Trailer 2 Released By Marvel

Marvel has released the second trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance due out in February.  This is one bad-ass superhero.  Looks awesome!!!


Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

He looks like a bad guy, but he’s really one of Marvel’s darkest bad-ass superheros.  Ghost Rider will return to the big screen in February 2012 in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.  Judging by the trailer, this movie looks to be even darker than the first one.  I enjoyed the first film and I remember it did well when it was released.  I believe it was #1 for two weeks in a row.  This will make for a nice holdover until The Avengers come in May.  Superhero films make tons of money, and I don’t see them slowing down anytime soon.
