New ‘Ghost Rider’, ‘Spider-Man’ One-Shot For October (Plus ‘Marvel Zombies’ Title)

Marvel is announcing a couple of new titles for October and giving a name to a previously teased title. First up is a new Ghost Rider ongoing series. This time it won’t be featuring the car driving Roberto Reyes (or Carter Slade or Alejandra Jones), but the “brothers” Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch:

Johnny Blaze ain’t just the king of Hell—he’s the warden too. He’s the first line of defense between the demonic hordes trying to escape the joint and the lords of other hells making a play for his throne and all the power that comes with it—including a certain evil queen from his past! Meanwhile, Danny Ketch never wanted to be a Ghost Rider. Now that his brother’s in charge downstairs, Ketch must take on the duty of Earth’s Spirit of Vengeance full-time—no matter how much he’d rather be doing anything else…

Ghost Rider #1 is written by Ed Brisson with art by Aaron Kuder.

Another new title is what looks to be a new one-shot featuring who else, Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Full Circle guest stars Nick Fury, Wolverine, and Spider-Ham, and a cluster of writers and artists :

A summons from S.H.I.E.L.D. leads Peter Parker into a globe-spanning adventure that will test him as never before, one in which the future of all mankind lies in his gloved, webbed hands! Who is the mysterious prisoner in the steel box who keeps propelling the wall-crawler onward?

Spider-Man: Full Circle #1 is written by Nick Spencer, Jonathan Hickman, Gerry Duggan, Al Ewing, Chip Zdarsky, Kelly Thompson, and Jason Aaron. Art will be by Chris Bachalo, Chris Sprouse, Greg Smallwood, Michael Allred, Rachael Stott, Valerio Schiti, Cameron Stewart, and Mark Bagley, with a cover by Rod Reis.

Marvel also revealed the title for the previously teased Marvel Zombies title: Marvel Zombies: Respawns #1. The title is written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson with art by Leonard Kirk and a cover by Inhyuk Lee. Here’s the description:

When Galactus’ corpse appears at the edge of Earth’s solar system, the Avengers, X-Men, and Fantastic Four investigate. Too late, they discover that Galactus’ body is now the vessel of an interstellar terror, which one-by-one transforms Earth’s Mightiest Heroes into the universe’s most terrifying predators! As our heroes try to escape the super-powered, cannibalistic aberrations that were once their friends and family, will any survive? And even if they do, can they hope to protect Earth from the infestation that has already claimed half of the known universe?

The announcement also promoted Immortal Hulk #25 and Powers of X #6.
