Marvel Comics Cancels Ghost Rider – Missing In Action Update

Ghost Rider was one of the comic books that had its comics issues delayed but not deleted, and Ghost Rider #7 was finally published ending on a cliffhanger. However, subsequent issues never came to be rescheduled and its Empyre crossover was also cancelled. Now it seems Ghost Rider #8 – and the planned Ghost rider annual will not be published, physically or digitally.

Writer Ed Brisson tweets: "As many have assumed, GHOST RIDER #7 was the last issue of the series. I loved writing it; had a hell of a time telling Danny and Johnny's stories; & introducing the Spirit of Corruption. As far as their continued adventures, that will continue elsewhere in the Marvel Universe. I should have done this sooner, but I wanted to also thank @AaronKuder, @juanmfrigeri and @bam_jason. The book would have been nothing without them.

Here are the solicitations for what once was:
