Characters Appearing: Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze)
Ghost Rider #16
Issue(s): Ghost Rider #16
Also, the Man Who Hates Dolphins.
Blaze is in Baja California, trying to take a vacation from his movie studio job. He had to bribe his way past the border guard, who didn't want any naked druggy hippy motorcycle gang guys in his country.
Yet another person who isn't at all phased by Johnny Blaze turning into a demonic flaming skull head ("unless you want me to").
As for next issue, who can say?
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: This takes place between Champions #3-4. Thanks to my Champions comics being bundled in a trade, i have it in the general vicinity of those issues.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Yet another Jaws cash-in. It was the biggest movie money-maker in the world until "Star Wars", so a huge number of comics(and b&w mags)stuck a shark at least on the cover in hope of jacking up sales. DC also jumped on this really big(unlike Marvel, they ignored the previous incredibly popular film, "the Exorcist"). I have no idea if it really worked saleswise, and creatively it got utterly bizarre at times(especially that one cover with Superman getting chomped by Jaws).

That's a pretty great "next issue" blurb, I must admit
