Buy This Comic

I realize it's been quite a long time since I've posted anything of note here on the blog, that will hopefully change soon.  In the meantime, I want to point out that all Ghost Rider fans should pick up Thanos # 13 by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw that came out this week.  You absolutely will not regret it.

SERIOUSLY, READ THIS COMIC.

Podcast Update

Just to update everyone who's waiting for the next episode, there won't be a new one released this week.  Personal lives have intruded on our recording schedule, so we're forced to push back the next release by a week or two.  So sorry everybody, thanks so much for all your support for the show!

Inner Demons Episode 15: "Canadian Bacon"



After a bit of a delay, Inner Demons is back with a brand new attack!  This episode Chris and Brian take a look at two new Ghost Rider related comic releases, namely Marvel Legacy # 1 and Spirits of Vengeance # 1!  Then, in place of our regular classic reviews, we take a fond look back at a Very Special Issue from Ghost Rider history, Amazing Spider-Man: Hit and Run # 3.  Remember to always wear your helmets when riding your bicycles, kiddos!

Bad Timing

This morning I posted the newest episode of Inner Demons for everyone to download and listen to, and in that episode Brian and I discussed Ghost Rider # 5 from 1973.  That issue featured a villain named Roulette attacking Las Vegas and destroying a casino, killing lots of people in the process.  We recorded this episode over a week ago, and I had it scheduled in advance for today's release.  The episode went live this morning, and I thought nothing else about it when I announced the release here and on the Vengeance Unbound Facebook page.

Obviously, I wasn't considering that Las Vegas had just experienced a mass shooting at a concert on Sunday night that claimed 59 innocent lives.  Had we recorded this episode after that incident, our conversation would have certainly been a lot different.  When creating material for entertainment, in this instance discussing a comic book that was published 40 years ago, we have no way of accounting for a real life tragedy.

So, if listening to the episode this morning with no warning of the content has made you upset, I absolutely understand.  It wasn't until a listener sent me a message saying that it was a little too early to be talking about mass murder in Las Vegas that I even realized how our content was now being viewed a hell of a lot different than normal.  If you don't want to listen to that section, skip ahead about 45 minutes to completely bypass our review of Ghost Rider # 5.

Thanks to Jason Hall for pointing this out to me, it certainly wasn't my intention to upset anyone with the content. 

Inner Demons Episode 14: "Ms. Jemima Catmint: Spirit of Vengeance"



Do you get frustrated when the villain you're trying to give your Penance Stare to turns out to be a robot?  Do you hold the popular belief that all motorcyclists should be lined up against a wall and shot?  Do you ever become angry when you realize your freedom from Hell was all just an elaborate game where you were the witless pawn? Then welcome to our magic floating castle everyone, Inner Demons is back with another new episode!  Brian and Chris take a look back at Ghost Rider (1973) # 5, Ghost Rider (1990) # 10, Ghost Rider (2005) # 6, and Ghost Rider 2099 # 8!  

Warning: This episode contains talk about a scene of mass death and destruction in Las Vegas, which was recorded before the Las Vegas shooting on 10/1/17.  If you do not wish to listen to that section, please skip ahead 37 minutes.

You can listen to the episode at the Vengeance Unbound page on blogspot, or you can download it from either Stitcher or iTunes .  You can also find us on Facebook, just search  for "Vengeance Unbound" and on Twitter under @InnerDemonsGR.  Thanks for listening!

Inner Demons Episode 13: "Edge of Orbverse"



We've got Spider-Man to the left of us, Spider-Man 2099 to the right, and now we're stuck in the middle with Thor!  Inner Demons is back with unlucky episode # 13, and this episode we look at Marvel Team-Up (1972) # 15, The Mighty Thor # 429-430, Ghost Rider (2005) # 5, and Ghost Rider 2099 # 7!  This episode was recorded before the news broke of Len Wein's passing, an unfortunate coincidence that this episode featured us looking back at his one time writing Ghost Rider.  R.I.P. Mr. Wein.
