Ghost Rider Review

    When Ghost Rider stories go wrong, they go savagely wrong, and this volume simply does not work. Editorially shoehorned into the world because the character was on ABC's Agents of SHIELD show (I'm assuming), this incarnation is not even the one most fans will know - and that could be one of two; Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch. This is Robbie Reyes, who somehow has an onboard consciousness riding shotgun of a dead uncle (Firestorm?) and who really has no character depth.

Editorially shoehorned into the world because the character was on ABC's Agents of SHIELD show (I'm assuming), this incarnation is not even the one most fans will know - and that could be one of two; Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch. This is Robbie Reyes, who somehow has an onboard consciousness riding shotgun of a dead uncle (Firestorm?) and who really has no character depth. The story hinges on a big purple DNA draining monster (who is NOT the Super-Adaptoid) and leaves an unresolved cliffhanger. It also features so many guest stars - Amadeus Cho's Hulk, Laura Linney Wolverine, Gabby, her clone, Agents Coulson and May of SHIELD, Silk, one of the alternate Spider-people, and so on to the point that this should have touted as a team book, because GR's time on the page is super limited by comparison to his guest stars, supporting cast, and villains. The art's pretty.

    If I gave this book an unbiased review, it might be more favorable than I am willing to give. Unfortunately, I read some other opinions and must agreed with what I read. A series like this appears to have been quickly drawn up to take advantage of the Ghost Rider character being played on in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I hear the earlier works of Robbie Reyes were more fascinating. With this volume, it felt like Ghost Rider was only a supporting character in a book with his name on the cover.

I hear the earlier works of Robbie Reyes were more fascinating. With this volume, it felt like Ghost Rider was only a supporting character in a book with his name on the cover. The story focused more on the eventual team up with Amadeus Cho Hulk, X-23 Wolverine, and Silk. I guess the sales were not good enough to keep the book beyond a one and done. It is pretty understandable. The overall bad guy of this volume was pretty disturbing by most standards.

    sorely disappointed, especially with the promise of team up

    This feels much more like a team-up book than a Ghost Rider book.Some plot things "just happen" making the story not work well for me.

    The main problem here is the titular character here, Ghost Rider is a guest star in his own book. That wouldn't be so bad if everything else was good however it isn't. What we have is a generic monster on the loose tale. The story is so slow that it becomes frustrating which is made worse by the fact that the final issue is very rushed. The artwork is not great but it mostly works. Its a shame as this series had potential but this opening arc fell flat.
