Moving Forward. . .

I would rarely choose a piece that has speed lines but Lee doesn't solely rely on them in this piece. I've always admired the moment caught in this great Ghost Rider cover where ol' flame head runs Punisher over while fighting with him. There are few Ghost Rider covers that sell me on picking up the book but Tex usually catches my attention, reels me in, and keeps me staring. Jim Lee's Ghost Rider covers are sporadic throughout the beginning of the series and he holds his own very well.

Lee's earlier work had so much energy and wasn't stiffened up like his later work. Works like his X-men run were the best and moving out from there.

Here is my cover pick of the week for "Moving Forward".
