Day 2. Ghost Rider and Ghost/Night Rider Ghost Rider #50 August 1980
This one came in after my response. I actually bought this off the spinner rack. The only issue of Ghost Rider I ever bought it was purchased mostly for the Ghost/Night Rider appearance and marginally because it was an anniversary issue. I'd honestly forgotten about it until now.

Hawkman is in the midst of a multi-issue run when Deadman shows up. Reading this as a stand alone comic there’s a few “what the hell is going on here?” moments, but over all things are readable, so thumbs up here. The comic starts off with Hawkman and Hawklady in the middle a big old zombie fight & they’re being attacked by the reanimated corpse of a murdered ex-girlfriend, along with other deadies. Deadman shows up and with a practiced ease takes over the zombie Ex. Some zombies get capped, they find the bad guy behind the whole thing & turn off his zombie machine (but allowing him to escape), and Deadman helps Hawkman get some closure with his dead ex. Pretty pictures too - whoop whoop!
Great pic. I enjoyed Palmiotti and Gray's Hawkman run.
It was the year of fire… the year of destruction… the year we took back what was ours. It was the year of rebirth… the year of great sadness… the year of pain… and the year of joy. It was a new age. It was the end of history. It was the year everything changed.
