GHOST RIDER FINALE (NOV062296)

Written by IVAN VELEZ

Art by JAVIER SALTARES & MARK TEXEIRA

Cover by JAVIER SALTARES

The original creative team unites to complete an issue eight years in the making! In early 1998, GHOST RIDER #93 ended with a shocking cliffhanger: the death of Dan Ketch, the Ghost Rider's human host! But the book was canceled prematurely, prior to the release of the series finale in GHOST RIDER #94 – which had already been written and was almost entirely penciled. Now, the final fate of Dan Ketch is revealed at last! With Blackheart deposed, the Ghost Rider is now lord of the Nether Realm. What does he intend to do with his power? And will the other Dark Lords – like Belasco, Pluto and Hela – allow him to keep it? This special edition also includes GHOST RIDER #93 and other bonus material!

WHITE TIGER #3 (of 6)

Written by TAMORA PIERCE & TIMOTHY LIEBE

Penciled by PHILIPPE BRIONES

Cover by DAVID MACK

After putting a beating on Sano and his bloodthirsty Yakuza warriors, White Tiger and Daredevil face the long arm of the NYPD---and its crosshairs. Being a wanted vigilante is a newsflash for Del Toro as she realizes becoming an enemy of the state isn't easy. On top of a visit by everyone's favorite Webslinger, a cold hard rejection by Matt Murdock, and a bruising punch fest with Cobra, Angela learns that divorcing her real-life identity from masked crusading is not as simple as just removing a mask, nor is it all that realistic. And to add it all, Chaeyi and its shadowy activities keep running unchecked with no leads in sight.

The only thing that seems to be constant is the indecision, violence, and frustration following White Tiger without pause….welcome to her world. It's about to get much rougher!
