Ghost Rider 2099
The camera ready paste up art of this story is for sale on eBay now, here.
In 1995 Joey Cavalieri at Marvel Comics commissioned me to do a file issue of Ghost Rider 2099.
Great news to me as I really enjoyed drawing the big guy! This issue, titled ‘Horrorshow’, was scripted by another, not nearly as well know then as now, UK writer. Mr Warren Ellis. On this page is the inked art for that story with letters by Richard Starkings. Colour guides [Pre-digital era!] were done by Bernie Mireault, but have been lost as far as I know. About 6 months latter Joey also commissioned me and Scott Andrews to do another file issue of Ghost Rider 2099 that we co-wrote, titled ‘Daddy Dearest’.
Sadly, both these 2 books remain unpublished, the title having been canceled shortly after the second story was completed and before either of the file stories were needed. Horrorshow I think, represents some of the best, tightest work I did at the time in the graphic Sci-Fi style i had been trying to refine at the time. The pages seen here are still some of my all time personal favorites for the line quality and general consistency of style that was achieved.
