The 90's were a crazy time for comics. Poplarity and speculation were at an all time high and comic companies were doing whatever they could to keep up with the demand. The Spectre and Ghost Rider were two characters that benefited from the influx of new titles. Once a C-Lister, the Ghost Rider got a second chance and hit a chord with readers, going on to support multiple titles and becoming one of Marvel's star players for a while. The 1990's Spectre series by John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake was one of the best (and most overlooked) titles from the decade. It's an almost perfect 60-issue run and it's a shame that more people dod not get a chance to catch it. Hopefully now that Jim Corrigan has been reinstated as The Spectre in the New 52, DC will consider reprinting the series in trade paperback form..
