Reading Room: HELL-RIDER "introducing...the Hell Rider" Part 1

He's the hard-riding NOW Super-Hero of 1971...
...who, while he had his own 2-issue title, never appeared in a comic book!
Confused, true believer?
Read on...
Home is the (Super)Hero!
As we mentioned earlier, Hell-Rider had his own title, but it was a b/w magazine, not a comic book!
As a result, it wasn't censored by the Comics Code Authority, so things like drug use, extreme violence and near-nudity show up in the story from Skywald's Hell-Rider #1 (1971) written by Gary Friedrich and illustrated by Ross Andru (pencils), Mike Esposito (inks) and Bill Everett (greytones).
We'll be presenting additional information as we go through both issues of the "Now Super-Hero's" saga!
