Ghost Rider's bony, bony feet don't fail him now

Hello there Mid-Day pals 'n' gals! (Which is not to say gals can't be pals.) Usually in this noontime spot we'd have another thrilling installment of Mid-Day Matinee—this week, all week: Atlas/Seaboard Week! But I forgot the first rule of blogging the Mid-Day Matinee: K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stuffedbull)! I've been leading your through the World o' Atlas with so many scans that my prep time, like Batman's has skyrocketed!

So, for the rest of the week (all week), let's do a temporary switcharoo: Atlas/Seaboard Week entries will move to the evening, so look for one later tonight!

In the meantime, to keep you giggling through your lunch hour (please do not choke on your tuna sammich, though), here's

The Time That Ghost Rider Ran Away!

Panels from Marvel Spotlight #11 (August 1973), script by Gary Friedrich, pencils by Tom Sutton, inks by Syd Shores, colors by Glynis Wein, letters by John Costanza

So remember: when your freakin' head is on fire because you sold your soul to Satan and you need to get away from Satan's minions...just run away, okay? Take a clue from Ghost Rider! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY! He's escaping as covertly as a flaming skulled guy in motorcycle leathers can escape.
