An official preview for the first issue of Marvel Comics’ new Ghost Rider series reveals a massive status quo shift for Johnny Blaze.

Ghost Rider #1 is set to hit comic shops this coming Wednesday, Feb. 23, from writer Benjamin Percy, artist Cory Smith, colorist Bryan Valenza and letterer Travis Lanham. The House of Ideas promises that Johnny Blaze’s new solo series takes a “back to basics” approach in its portrayal of the Spirit of Vengeance.

Johnny Blaze’s life has often been tragic, with the one-time professional stunt rider and recent King of Hell having lost his parents, his wife and his own children. In Percy and Smith’s Ghost Rider #1, however, Johnny has “the perfect life: a wife and two kids, a job at an auto repair shop and a small-town community that supports him.” However, Johnny also sports a large scar on his head, with something frightening and dangerous lurking beneath the surface. Notably, Percy himself recently told CBR that in this new series, “Johnny Blaze no longer has control over the Spirit of Vengeance, and when possessed, he has no memory of what’s transpired,” further shaking things up.
