The acclaimed GHOST RIDER run of writer Jason Aaron reaches its fever-pitched conclusion with six more issues of insanity, all jam-packed with new villains, old allies and the same old grindhouse action that Flamehead fans have come to know and love. The renegade angel Zadkiel is out to thwart Biblical prophecy by assassinating a young boy bred by Satanists to rule the world, so if Ghost Riders Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch are going to save the world, they'll first have to save the Anti-Christ. Guest-starring Hellstorm, the Son of Satan. Parental Advisory …$3.99

    Overall, after a few months without some great Aaron helmed Ghost Rider action, humor, and horror, it's great to see him back in the saddle again. This series has the promise of being the pinnacle of Aaron's Ghost Rider run. Read Full Review

    It's a nice addition to Heaven's On Fire with some actual relevance to the story at hand, so I approve of its inclusion to help defray the extra dollar being charged for this issue. I guess if they're going to up the price, the least they can do is give us more, and appropriate, content. Read Full Review

    So issue #1 is fun, most certainly, but not wholly satisfying given how long we've been waiting. I also picture a bit of righteous anger when readers realize they're now paying $3.99 for what is still really a $2.99 story. Heaven's On Fire can get by on sheer kinetic energy for now, but if Aaron really wants to hammer home the idea that this is Johnny Blaze's final stand, he'll need to turn up the character drama in issue #2.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 6, 2009

    I'm hesitant to call it a Must Read as this does deal with a lot of fringe characters and the more mystical sides of the Marvel Universe, but this is a very good read and, my complaints about the useless recap page at the start aside, fairly reader friendly, all things considered.
