GHOST RIDER ANNUAL # 2

Written by SIMON SPURRIER
Pencils by MARK ROBINSON
Cover by MARK TEXEIRA

Mercy, Idaho: A small town in the hills with more than its fair share of secrets. A winged-terror that haunts the woods; an irresistible pull on the desperate and the suicidal; and now a stranger on a low-slung chopper, with fire in his eyes. For Johnny Blaze - searching for a way to wage war against heaven itself - the frozen forests of Mercy might just provide a path through the Pearly Gates…

Ballpit Alcoholism

video

Comicbook writers and techno-web-people, being Sensible and Sober.

Kieron Gillen (diving and breaching like a balding orca), Alasdair Watson (hiding in the corner and providing long range artillery support), Matt Jones (lurking behind the camera and laughing like a hyena on herbs), and me. Doing my Drunken Twat laugh (like an otter trying to eat a cobweb), and trying not to barf in the balls.

You may also catch a glimpse of Jamie McKelvie, watching through the window at the back. He was too beautiful to play.
