Method Man Wrote a ‘Ghost Rider’ Christmas Story For Marvel
Wu-Tang Clan co-founder Method Man has made no secret of his love for Marvel Comics. After all, he already adapted “Johnny Blaze” as his alias on “The Purple Tape” and he made an extended cameo appearance on Marvel’s Luke Cage series in which he even dropped a new song for the soundtrack. But now, Method Man is trading in Johnny Blaze for the All-New Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes in a new comic story!
Complex broke the news about Marvel’s All-New Ghost Rider X-Mas Special, which was released today through the company’s digital outlets. For the story, Method Man teamed up with co-writer and artist, Anthony Piper on a tale that will pit Reyes’ Spirit of Vengeance against none other than Krampus himself in the heart of East Los Angeles!
Piper told Complex that “the fact that this was one of first projects with Marvel was already insane, but then when my Editor, Chris, hit me with the info that this would be a creative collaboration with Method Man, my hype level doubled from 10 to 20!”
Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso added that “the conversation between hip-hop and Marvel continues as one of rap’s most storied lyricists takes the Hell Charger out for a ride. In Ghost Rider X-mas Special, the legendary Method Man sets up a classic conflict between Robbie Reyes, the current Ghost Rider, and Krampus, a mythical creature who’s perhaps best described as the anti-Santa. Will it be a merry Christmas? Read and find out.”
