Check 'em out!

Oh, yeah, Groove-ophiles--if you're in the mood for more Ghost Rider splashes, you can see the fab first pages from each of GR's appearances in Marvel Spotlight (issues 5-11) right here!

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Here's a rare script by ace letterer Todd Klein for Secrets of Haunted House #25 (March 1980), "The Man Who Cheated Destiny!" Another cool and rare thing about this story is that Haunted House's host Destiny plays an active role. Also, it's got fabamundo art by Trevor Von Eeden and Dave Simons. What's not to love?
