    Solid start to a new book! While I'm a little bummed it's a Fear Itself tie-in, this issue actually works pretty well in that story, even if I don't know why Ghost Rider is there. I'm excited to see that Johnny Blaze is still a part of the book and who he will be teaming up with, and for once, I actually loved the back-up story explaining the origin of the new rider. However, the costume was something I was truly not digging and I have no clue why a skeleton body has breasts. Minor complaints aside, this is a great start to a new series. It's the perfect place to jump on and I highly recommend the issue. Read Full Review

    Fantastic ideas and solid artwork hampered by Fear Itself and some at times sketchy writing. Read Full Review

    What do you want me to say? I despise the idea of a female Ghost Rider. We already had TWO perfectly fine Ghost Riders in Johnny Blaze, or the WAY superior Danny Ketch. Was this a bad comic book? No, not at all. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed the main story a lot, although I didn't get the origin story in the least... But seriously, what is Marvel's obsession with taking established male characters and turning them female? Read Full Review
