  • 22:42 For some reason a lot of superhero fans & Marvel zombies seem to look down on Ghost Rider like it's somehow beneath them. I don't get it. #
  • 22:45 Is a motorcyclist with a flaming skull for a head really that much more outrageous than any of the other stuff out there? #
  • 22:46 All I know is, Ghost Rider is the most fun I've ever had as a writer. #

Last night I went down to the river


Me and Ande Parks (writer of the terrific UNION STATION and CAPOTE IN KANSAS) saw Springsteen and the E Street Band at the Sprint Center here in Kansas City last night. As big a Springsteen fan as I am (and I'm a big one, in case you didn't know) this was actually the first time I'd ever seen The Boss live. Why the hell did I wait so long? I got to hear some of my all-time favorite songs, like "Born to Run," "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," "Youngstown" and "Candy's Room," as well as tour firsts like "Devils and Dust" and "Cynthia." Bruce played for over 3 hours and looked like he could've played for 3 more when he finally ducked back into the darkness with the crowd still roaring (no way is that man 60 years old). And eventhough there were about 20,000 people there, it was an incredibly intimate show, with Bruce shaking hands with pretty much the entire front rows and even crawling atop the crowd at a couple points. It was unquestionably one of the best shows I've ever seen and probably as close to a religious experience as I've ever come at a concert. Definitely got inspiration for at least another 30 issues of SCALPED just being there. Thanks, Bruce.

Preview of GHOST RIDER #26

It's in stores today, along with SCALPED #20. Ask for them by name. And also check out the first issue of G. Willow Wilson's excellent new Vertigo series, AIR. You won't regret it.
