Ghost Rider motorcycle hero…

Sneakin’ round round round in a blue jumpsuit…

Seriously, Ghost Rider might be one of the coolest looking superheroes EVER. A flaming skull in a jumpsuit, who rides a motorcycle. So cool. Or hot. Whichever.

Just look at this cover. The guy was cool from the jump.

His series reboot in the 90s? Grim and gritty, sure, but not so grim and gritty that it doesn’t hold up 10+ years later.

And don’t tell me you wouldn’t wear this.

Seriously, there’s no way to make Ghost Rider not cool.

Nope, not even that. Dude even has his very own song.

Suicide- Ghost Rider.

Sure, it’s weird synthesizer music from the late 70s NY punk scene, and doesn’t seem all that hard. But learn your history. Alan Vega used to swing a motorcycle chain around on stage, and their shows used to end in full blown riots. And if that’s not hard enough for you, Henry Rollins used to cover it in the early days of the Rollins Band.

Rollins Band, 1988.

So yeah, that song is cool as hell. Just like the Ghost Rider.

All hail the king, baby.

Kick Ass kicks ass.

Since a new Kick Ass movie poster was just released (and does that movie look like it’s going to be awesome or what? Nicolas Cage alone is worth price of admission.), I thought it would be appropriate to showcase a few auctions featuring Kick Ass the actual comic.

For the autograph hound: issue #1, signed by writer Mark Millar, artist John Romita Jr, and… Jane Goldman? Yeah, I went “who?” too, then I googled her. She’s one of the writers for the movie, and she’s British and hot and usually has pink hair, and she hosts a paranormal investigation show… yeah, you kind of need her autograph.

For the art collector: A Romita sketch of Kick Ass… done on the back of a baseball jersey? Hey, whatever.

And for the uninitiated: all 7 issues of the comic. Yes, that’s right, an ongoing comic series that has only gone 7 issues has a full length motion picture coming out already. But it’s one that looks really, REALLY good, and the comic itself is really, REALLY good (when it actually comes out), so let’s give it a pass on getting a little big for it’s britches, shall we?
