Johnny Blaze has been traveling with the brilliant hedge witch, Talia Warroad, but how well does he really know her? Now Talia’s messy past, her teenage loves and furious first spells, will pull into his lane. Just who is Talia Warroad and how was her life set on a collision course with the Spirit of Vengeance?
Guest starring DOCTOR STRANGE!
ComicBook.comGhost Rider steps aside so that the spotlight can shine on Talia Warroad, finally giving readers an origin to the enigmatic mystic. As with previous issues in this title, Benjamin Percy refuses to pull any punches with his storytelling, giving Talia a heartbreakingly brutal origin on how she came to be. While the eponymous character is thrown to the backburner this issue, giving readers plenty of exposition on one of Marvel's new favorites is a welcome (and needed) change of pace.
The Comicbook DispatchGhost Rider #18 is the perfect overview of Talia and her personality, showing what makes her tick and the demons she continually faces every day. For anyone who loves the character, this is a must buy. If you’re unfamiliar with the character but love horror stories, it’s also a must buy. There are several chilling scenes throughout the book and it’s a great set-up for the storyline kicking off next issue.
