Magazine Enterprises' Ghost Rider has a rather labyrinthine history which I don't wish to rehash in detail here. What interests me for the moment is the original stories illustrated by Dick Ayers.
Or rather, the stories not published.
When Mark Cannon exchanged some emails with Dick Ayers c.2000, he mentioned reading Second Thunder Valley, a Tales of the Ghost Rider story that didn't appear to have been published in the US during the original Ghost Rider run. Ayers told him that a number of Ghost Rider stories were completed but weren't published in the US as the series was cancelled due to the Comics Code. He recalled ME publisher Vin Sullivan once mentioned licensing a lot of ME material for publication in Australia, some of which may have been inventory stories 'leaked' onto the Australian market.
Bill Black's Best of the West: Golden-Age Greats Vol. 7 contains a checklist of Dick Ayers' work for ME which lists the following Ghost Rider inventory stories:
The Small Green Snake
Warrior From The Dead
Scream in the Night
Vigilantes of Hate
Second Thunder Valley
Man of Gold
The Vanishing Herd
To date I have found four of these stories in K.G. Murray issues published c.August 1967:
The Scream in the Night!: All Star Adventure Comic #46
Vigilantes of Hate!: All Favourites Comic #61
The Vanishing Herd!: All Favourites Comic #62
Second Thunder Valley: Bumper Western Comic #32
Ghost Rider was also published in Australia by Apache Comics in King Size Comic, so it is possible some of the missing stories appeared in this series.
And so, for your edification, here's The Scream in the Night! as it appeared in All Star Adventure Comic #46:
I will post the other inventory Ghost Rider stories I have in my collection over the next few days and update the links.
I began this post by saying I didn't want to rehash the publishing history of Ghost Rider. That's my way of inviting Mark Cannon to fill in the details in the comments section. Mark knows more about Ghost Rider and ME than I do, and was invaluable in providing much of the information above, spurred by my query when I couldn't locate a source for The Scream in the Night! For ages now I've been urging Mark to run his own blog on Australian reprint comics. I've even suggested a title: Shots from the Cannon - but to date he has resisted the temptation, preferring to lie low as one of my operatives. So consider this a proxy Shots from the Cannon post.
