How The Punisher Became The Cosmic Ghost Rider And Why He's Road-Tripping With A Baby Thanos

Anyone browsing the newer solicitations of Marvel Comics might find themselves asking an important question: “Who is the Cosmic Ghost Rider?” It’s a question with a surprisingly complex answer that begins in an epic arc titled "Thanos Wins" and carries right into the mysterious character's series. 

The short answer is the Cosmic Ghost Rider is a perished Punisher resurrected as a Ghost Rider and then made a Herald of Galactus before teaming up with King Thanos - but even that awesome description fails to capture the true majesty of the character. Like all great comic book concepts, the sum of Cosmic Ghost Rider is greater than his parts.
