There Was A Ghost Rider In Conan's Time Too… On A Giant Spider

Today's Marvel Comics July 2021 solicitations has, as ever, much to reveal. In the case of Savage Avengers #22, the news that Conan The Barbarian, currently visiting the modern-day Marvel Universe, has known other Ghost Riders. Recent Avengers comic books have seen Ghost Riders going back to one million BC, riding on woolly mammoths. Well, in the Hyborean Age, apparently the Spirit Of Vengeance rode a giant spider across the lands. No sign of him in the main Conan comic yet – but he's part of the Marvel canon now…or he will be in July.
