THE LAST GHOSTRIDER, A Novel of the Vietnam War
One of the cleverest tricks here is using Mark Bagley as artist, who instantly brings back a post-McFarlane nineties Spider-Man — and Ultimate Spider-Man — flavour to the comic book, makingvthis reinvention of Spider-Man fit right in line with other stabs in that direction. As Iron Man also gets involved with the war….
Vietnam being the original source of tension that created Iron Man back in the day. And even a cynical stab at Captain America — which gets a lot more cynical by the end of the first issue. We also see Flash Thompson going to Vietnam play out rather differently than the original version too…. This is looking like it may turn out to be one of my favourte Spider-Man stories ever. Because if, with great power comes great responsibility, there should always be great consequences as well. Fifty-seven years have passed in the real world since that event — so what would have happened if the same amount of time passed for Peter as well?
In this first oversized issue, when Flash Thompson is drafted to serve during the Vietnam War, Spidey must weigh the question of where his responsibility truly lies! Chief writer and founder of Bleeding Cool. Father of two. Comic book clairvoyant. Political cartoonist. Skip to content.
As Iron Man also gets involved with the war… Vietnam being the original source of tension that created Iron Man back in the day. But what about my money?
My disability money… and my meds. It was during the only time in his life he ever took a real vacation and went to Hawaii via some half-ass fly-by-night travel agency five-day package deal. The encounter took place at a luau after he had consumed a few drinks in the form of three tall Mai Tais and a Blue Hawaii. He was a year-old virgin and she was a year-old retired medical therapist from Missouri.
The second experience changed his life, leaving him to believe he had become an empowered man of the world and one of the beautiful people he had always heard about and seen on TV and in the movies, so he purchased the snow globe to commemorate the occasion.
Leroy touched his hand to his head anticipating yet another of his recurring migraines, a stress headache being brought on by yet another day of frustration resulting from yet another trip through the looking glass of the VA bureaucracy in an effort to obtain his disability payments, medications to combat the residual pain of his combat wounds, and the subsequent medications he needed to combat the migraine headaches resulting from his visits to the VA. It seemed to be a never-ending vicious cycle of having, each month, to convince the VA he was still alive and still in need of medical treatment.
Each month a different clerk, each month a different doctor, each month a new migraine that seemed to last all month. How the hell can I get ugly? He was a black guy from Detroit and he went home in a box. I saw him get his head blown off. Smith, you stupid shit.
Who the hell were you when you were born? I was too young at the time. Is she a communist? The thought was as confusing to him as their conversation.

Smith is MIA, the other L. Jesus Christ man, where do they find you fuckin' people anyway? An official functionary of the federal government, and as such I am not required to take verbal abuse. So you admit it! You called me, Mr. Not even if I kill a fully qualified civil servant and functionary of the government. Because according to you I'm already dead so I should fuckin' know, right? It shattered sending the snowy liquid spilling out in all directions with the little hula girl's head popping off and shooting across the floor.
