Marvel Comics July 2017 Solicitations

With the cancellation of Ghost Rider in April, the solicitations for upcoming Marvel comics have been pretty sparse in regards to new Ghost Rider content.  June, for example, had no Ghost Rider related comics solicited at all, unless you count Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme (and based on the last few issues of that series, I'm not even considering it to be even tangentially related to Ghost Rider anymore).  July sees only one new release, the utterly bizarre Edge of Venomverse # 3, which features Robbie Reyes as the re-branded "Host Rider".  Reyes does also appear on the cover for Unbelievable Gwenpool # 18, but I have a feeling it's another case of Ghost Rider being on the cover and not in the actual comic (a la Thunderbolts # 10).

Isn't the Venom symbiote afraid of fire...?
