Method Man Pens Special ‘Ghost Rider’ Christmas Comic for Marvel
Method Man has written a special Christmas edition of Ghost Rider for Marvel. The comic was released yesterday, and features by Anthony Piper and Balak, while the cover was created by Jamal Campbell.
The newest version of the comic features the character Roberto "Robbie" Reyes, a being capable of firing hellfire from his body. Meth took his alter-ego, "Johnny Blaze," from the character who shares the same nickname. The rapper is a huge fan of comics, most recently appearing in the Netflix breakout Marvel hit, Luke Cage.
"The conversation between hip-hop and Marvel continues as one of rap's most storied lyricists takes the Hell Charger our for a ride," Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso told Complex. "In Ghost Rider X-mas Special, the legendary Method Man sets up a classic conflict between Robbie Reyes, the current Ghost Rider, and Krampus, a mythic creature who's perhaps best described as the anti-Santa. Will it be a merry Christmas? Read and find out."
