Before Robbie Reyes became Ghost Rider on the pages of Marvel Comics, he was created through concept art.
A photo from Felipe Smith's early art of the character which would take the cover of All-New Ghost Rider #1 under the newly launched Marvel Now! brand has been revealed, showcasing the earliest designs of the new Ghost Rider character. The tweet from Wednesday Comix accompanies a photo with a caption reading, "Felipe Smith's pre-lim for Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider from 2013," with various hashtags including Agents of SHIELD.
Check out the tweet and photo below.
Smith, who also worked on a Captain Marvel series at Marvel, would lend himself to five issues of the All-New Ghost Rider series which quickly became a fan-favorite title. The Robbie Reyes design featured in the books would go on to be adapted into live-action when the character debuted on Marvel's ABC series Agents of SHIELD, played by Gabriel Luna.
The All-New Ghost Rider title would print 12 issues through March of 2015. The character would return on Agents of SHIELD for its Season 4 finale this past spring..
Additional guest stars in the "World's End" finale of SHIELD included Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, Mallory Jansen as Aida, Adrian Pasdar as Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, Jordan Rivera as Hope Mackenzie, Patrick Cavanaugh as Burrows, Zach McGowan as The Superior, Joris Jarsky as Sergei, Zibby Allen as Lt. Evans, Joel Stoffer as silhouetted man and Karole Foreman as waitress.
”World’s End” was written by Jeffrey Bell and directed by Billy Gierhart.
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on ABC and will return for its fifth season in the fall.
