    The fact that the ending to this issue created a lot of questions about Robbie's character and Eli's true purpose with very little answers and a lot of mystery about not knowing where the story will go next is a surprisingly welcomed sensation. The idea of not knowing and being faced with the unknown is sometimes unsettling but in this case it is fairly exciting. I am eager to see what else Smith, Moore, and Staples have in store for us and what other stories Robbie Reyes will be going through. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 30, 2014

    All-New Ghost Rider #5 was a fantastic conclusion for the first arc of the series. It wrapped up the story very well, had tons of excitement and energy, wonderful writing, and top-notch artwork with a unique style. I'm really hoping the next arc is just as good, because the book really has won me over. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Aug 4, 2014

    Tradd Moore is leaving the series to continue his sage of Luther Strode, and while he will be sorely missed I am confident Smith's direction will keep the series strong. Moore's art is kinetic and powerful, but it's the way it locks up with the story and script that has made this my favorite book from All-New Marvel Now. I gave the book the slimmest of chances and every month it kicks my butt for ever doubting it. Read Full Review

    That being said, as much as I want to stick with this series, Moore's departure is definitely going to be noticeable, but I still think that Smith's own development of Robbie through five issues alone has established a very signature and likeable young Ghost Rider. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Henry Varona Aug 1, 2014

    On art, Tradd Moore has made his mark on Ghost Rider. No other artist has ever interpreted the character in this way. There is so much style and energy in his art, but it never does too much. Moore puts in layers of details of that surpass most other monthly books. Granted, I don't necessarily always like this for some of his muscular characters, who grow a bit gargantuan for my taste. But in the moments where we see Ghost Rider power up, or Mister Hyde overdose on muscle stimulants, his work is in a class of it's own. I'll be sad to see Moore leave this book because he has defined Ghost Rider for me. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jul 30, 2014

    The first arc wraps up in an action-packed finale that is an incredibly fun read. While there is some frustration with knowing where this series is headed and what's going on with Eli, the overall issue provides some beautifully crafted art and a non-stop action thrill ride. I'm really glad that the new Ghost Rider book took this direction. It feels fresh and so different from previous incarnations. This is a series you should check out. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 31, 2014

    All-New Ghost Rider's first story arc wraps up with a finale that focuses more on action and spectacle than providing firm answers or explaining the new hero's true connection to the Ghost Rider mantle. But with an artist like Tradd Moore rendering the book, would you want something different? Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Jonathan Schultz Jul 30, 2014

    Yes, the art is disproportionate and super cartoony at some points, but I really enjoy it. It brings a lighter feel to what could be a very dark book and makes it a really fun read. I really like the flames and the ghost Rider design, its quite different from the actual flaming skull we are used to. I really like the new legacy heroes that Marvel is introducing lately with Ms. Marvel and All-New Ghost Rider; they are fun new spins on existing characters while bringing something new and fresh. I cant wait until Robbie gets to meet Johnny Blaze! Read Full Review
