“Monsters, Mayhem and Marvel Horror in Rise of the Midnight Sons

Friend of the Gutter Sara Century has some things to say about Ghost Rider, horror and Marvel’s Rise of the Midnight Sons at Comic Book Herald! “With an influx of scary villains, extreme action sequences, and earnest looks into a reluctant hero’s tortured inner world, the early days of the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider era infused contemporary superhero comics with a sort of hyper-violent neo-noir sensibility. This created a series that suited the overall vibe of Marvel Comics while featuring a uniquely sensitive and conflicted hero. Leading into Rise of the Midnight Sons, we’re following the path carved out by Danny Ketch’s earlier appearances, making this a rare crossover that successfully juggles the introduction of many new premises while remaining entrenched in a sense of undeniable history.”
