Number 1523: No animals were harmed in the making of this comic book

Two stories from ME’s Ghost Rider #8 (1952). The longer story, featuring the Ghost Rider, has a panel where a dog gets killed. This is not to rile up any animal lovers who read this blog, but the dog is not real. Nor is his hunchback owner, nor the villain of the piece, nor the Ghost Rider. And while we’re at it, how can you be sure I’m real?


For real, more Ghost Rider. Just click on the thumbnail.

Ayers art always reminded me a bit of Mike Ploog, and I suspect Ayers was an influence on Ploog. Great art, very expressive.

The Ghost Rider story is just dumb as a box of rocks. So Ghost Rider was just walking around outside of the woman's house and the exact right time a supernatural crime was happening? Or was he peeping?

I'd go with peeping because, honestly, if you want to keep the moral authorities away, well defined nipples isn't the best way to do it!

Love these GR tales, a complete hardcover collection would be super!
