    This issue is a great jumping on point for anyone who may have missed the previous 5 issues, but wants to get in on the series. Felipe Smith and Damion Scott have created a story that should familiarize new readers with this world while still keeping the attention of regular readers. Smith & Scott were able to progress the over-all story of Robbie and Gabe's relationship while introducing some new story elements that new and regular readers can grab on to and make them want to dig in for the rest of the ride. I'm letting them drive me along for more issues of this series. Read Full Review

    Scottcartooning is fun and expressive, and work best in the quiet moments in Robbies life. Unfortunately it doesnt seem suited to the high energy supernatural flavours needed to create a Ghost Rider book. His interpretation of the All-New Ghost Rider design is particularly bad, and his Mr. Hyde monsters are a far cry from the over-the-top mastery of Tradd Moore. Read Full Review

    Felipe Smith's second story arc sees Robbie settling into his role as a supernatural avenger. And everything is coming up Robbie lately. He's making good money by using his Ghost Rider powers to win races. He's able to spend more time with his brother. The only one not happy in this equation is his spectral partner Eli. Above all, this issue is great at building a sense of dread. Everything in Robbie's life is so positive that it's obviously going to collapse on him sooner rather than later. The question is how badly. Robbie is still very early in his hero's journey, and he has yet to learn the important lesson about power and responsibility (something Smith acknowledges in a very direct way here). The conflict Smith begins building isn't all that memorable aside from a purely visual standpoint, but clearly bigger things are brewing underneath. Read Full Review

    While I know for a fact that Moore's departure from the series has (inevitably) led to a surprising amount of drops, Smith's narrative is still going strong and Reyes remains one of my favorite inductions into the Marvel-616. Scott's art is a bold attempt to fill the void created by Moore's unique style of hyper-kinetic "Western-Manga-esque" brand of graphic detailing, but sadly falls short of bringing the same dynamic and appeal brought by Moore. In any case, I must admit that I plan on dropping this series following this issue, but that Smith is a far more capable writer than I had initially given him credit for. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills Aug 22, 2014

    All-New Ghost Rider still has potential. Marvel has tried again and again to make this character stick, to no avail. I personally love the car angle, and I'd love to see that last. But writer Felipe Smith seems too focused on his Mr. Hyde plot, when he should be shifting the Robbie Reyes storyline into high gear. That's who I want to read about. Who cares about Mr. Hyde?
