If you want to be spoiled on the big reveal in Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 this Wednesday, which will set up what the series is actually about, you are in the right place.
If you want something slightly less spoilery, you can try here.
In that article, we talk about the Cosmic Ghost Rider, who as you may recall is the future Frank Castle, the Punisher, made the Spirit of Vengeance after his death by Mephisto, then the Herald of Galactus and who then meets Thanos.
He has decided that Thanos is at the root of all evil. And since he is back from the dead one more time and now has a time machine, he is doing the killing-Hitler-as-a-child thing.
Which, for a man whose vengeance is based on the slaughter of his own children, is quite the step.
But he can't do it. Thanos may be handy even at that age, but he is still a child. And so Frank Castle does the only thing he can…
Welcome to what Cosmic Ghost Rider will actually be about. A reworking of Lone Wolf and Cub, but with Cosmic Ghost Rider and Hitler-as-a-Baby Thanos.
Just the kind of thing you can enjoy reading after you've wept those tears for Donny Cates's other comic out this week, Death of the Inhumans. I don't think you've had two quite so disparate comics out on the same day from the same writer since Alex De Campi's Grindhouse shipped on the same day as her My Little Pony book.

EXPLODING FROM THE PAGES OF THANOS!
Frank Castle was the Punisher. A deal with the devil made him Ghost Rider. A deal with Galactus made him cosmic. A deal with Thanos made him…DEAD?!? Not to worry, he's coming back, and he's got a plan to make the universe a better place that's going to lead him into an even CRAZIER adventure than he's ever been in! Join hot new comic (and cosmic?) writer Donny Cates (THANOS, DOCTOR STRANGE) as he pushes his wildest creation past the breaking point!
