Marvel Spotlight #8 / Ghost Rider - Mike Ploog art & cover

Marvel Spotlight v1 #8 Ghost Rider marvel comic book cover art by Mike Ploog
Mike Ploog
Marvel Spotlight v1 #8 on Ghost Rider, 1973 - A canyon in the Southwestern desert beckons Johnny Blaze, leading him to attempt a death-defying motorcycle jump. Mike Ploog's pencils are hopelessly mismatched with Jim Mooney's conservative inking. The darker mood of previous issues gives way to a lighter, more sanitized look. Although Ploog emerges in certain panels, his style is largely suppressed. By contrast, the artist's cover showcases his distinctive, fluid approach. This is number 7 of 8 Marvel Spotlight issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog, Marvel Spotlight or Ghost Rider issues.
