Marvel Spotlight v1 #7 on Ghost Rider, 1972 - Continuing the satanic storyline, Mike Ploog displays his unique style on both the cover and interiors. A few of the opening pages are lackluster in design, then pick up momentum as the story progresses. As with previous issues, Ploog's best panels center around the Ghost Rider. The graveyard scene (see interior page below), the confrontation with a motorcycle gang (page 13) and the climactic final two pages are all worthy highlights. The story was later reprinted in Original Ghost Rider #3. This is number 6 of 8 Marvel Spotlight issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog, Marvel Spotlight or Ghost Rider issues. See also this blog's Mike Ploog checklist or Top 10 Mike Ploog comics.
