Ghost Rider and Evel Knievel in: "Hell on Wheels!"



This was one of my favorite offbeat pairings back in issue #74, so I thought I would give them another go 'round.  The last time I had a painted cover, so for this one I went for a more traditional Bronze Age comic vibe.  I used to love playing with the Evel Knievel wind-up stunt cycle (the ad from which this Knievel image came) when I was a kid - how cool would a Ghost Rider version of that toy have been?

That's pretty cool!
Evil Knievel was so cool growing up! How amazing that he was able to become a brand and household name! What was so great was that he tried great things. Okay, so most of his stunts ended with him breaking nearly every bone in his body - he at least tried. I will never forget the bio picture starring George Hamilton! In his day he would have been a great Ghost Rider!

If only Ponch and Jon from "CHiPs" could make a cameo in this it would be 70's heaven.

If Marvel's Scourge showed up in the DC Universe they'd make him an editor.

Oh, it was easy to get a Ghost Rider toy back in the day; all you needed was you Knievel toy set, a little accelerant applied strategically, and a match...

This almost happened in a weird sort of way - Team America was a spin-off from Evel Knievel, and Ghost Rider appeared in #11 of the Marvel comic-book series based on that property.
