Ghost Rider #3 (1973)

Ghost Rider was the highest of high concepts for the 1970s. A motorcycle stunt rider who is possessed by the devil and forced to fight crime, huh? Just how many cliches does that grant plot contain? And yet the concept worked, and this comic ran for a long, long time.
 
Why did it run so long? It wasn’t the stories, it was the awesomely cool image of the Ghost Rider himself. Just look at the piece of art attached to this posting and tell me there’s not something immediately exciting about this character. Fucking a. The Ghost Rider kicked some serious supernatural ass.
