Fifteen years ago, The Ride roared to life. An original concept from 12-Gauge Comics, the action-packed noir anthology series focused on a 1968 Camaro and the lives of those that come into contact with it. And now The Ride roars back to life with a new miniseries that celebrates the title’s storied history and kicks things into high gear– this is The Ride: Burning Desire.

Last month, we met The Ride: Burning Desire‘s lead character, Samantha Vega. A former detective, Samantha ended up in prison for fifteen years on a murder plea. After getting out, she became a bouncer at an exotic dance club. However, with threats from her former colleagues on the force and the sudden reappearance of the Camaro hanging over her head, Samantha’s life is about to get turned upside down again.

Samantha Vega learns that her old friends on the police force are just waiting for her to screw up and get sent back to prison. And with that added pressure, her regret-filled nightmares of what put her in prison to begin with only grow stronger. In this issue’s backup feature, artists CHRIS BRUNNER and RICO RENZI (LOOSE ENDS, Spider-Gwen) reveal the tragic backstory of a dancer with a leather fetish.
