    In other news, Grumpy's still going HAM on his mutant pill game, and "Hyde's paramilitary circus" is recruiting, all as we see this penultimate installment in one of my favorite arcs of the year shape up to set the All-New Ghost Rider against every enemy he's faced thus far all at once " as both personas. Smith and Moore are still working magic here, and whatever happens next can only be bigger and more badass. Read Full Review

    While this issue wasn't as action packed and visually stunning as I've come to expect, it isn't because the quality has fallen. Every story arch has a few issues that are heavier narratively and these have significantly less action. Since the majority of the really powerful and compelling art is dynamic and rooted in the action sequences I found myself missing them. Read Full Review

    If that last double-truck was any indication, it's all about hit the fan in the conclusion of the debut arc for this title. Read Full Review

    It's easy to ridicule this new take on Ghost Rider based on the hyper-stylized art and the fact that he doesn't drive a motorcycle, but the series is coming along nicely. Tradd Moore's art is easily the biggest draw still, packing enough energy and expressive character design to fill three or four normal comics. Read Full Review

    With so many things going for it you really should be reading this series. There might be some out there who are bothered by Moores art-style, but thankfully, Ive never met them. Smith is breathing life into a brand new character that well want to stick around for a long time. I think its safe to say that this series took most of us by surprise! Read Full Review

    ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER continues to be an incredibly fun book that has some brilliant art in it. Robbie Reyes is a very compelling character and the only real downside of the issue is that I wish they spent a little more time on Reyes and Morrow rather than going through the Grumpy and scientist story. Overall, though, this is still a top book and continues to impress me. I highly recommend it because it's a wild ride... pun intended. Read Full Review

    The first arc is nearing its end. The build up has reached an all-time high. I've caught myself on many occasions audibly cheering Robbie on to take out his foes. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Rob Thomas Jun 28, 2014

    Storyline pacing issues notwithstanding, All-New Ghost Rider #4 is a solid enough continuation of the Robbie Reyes origin story, but there are times where he almost feels like he's taking a back seat in his own narrative. So much of this arc's focus has been on the villains when we should still be getting to know him and his history. Maybe that will come during whatever follows "Engines of Vengeance," but for now, the Rider keeps on riding. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jun 25, 2014

    The action sequence and surprising way to open this issue saves it from being a bridge issue and nothing more. That said, the exposition is heavy and slogs things down considerably. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Gaumer Jun 26, 2014

    All-New Ghost Rider #4 is a good comic book overall, and a fun addition to the series in it's very brief run so far, but it's not a great book, and is the worst of the series so far. There's nothing particularly bad going on, it's just not on par with the work in issues 1-3. What we have is the classic “filler issue”, and it's really hard for me to blame the creators in this case, because despite 6-issue arcs being the current trend, this filler issue wasn't boring, had a few semi-important thing going on, and was still a blast to look at even if the art fell off a tad. Definitely still a book to read, but not the best example of the run so far. Read Full Review

    Smith tries to prop the book up on brotherly love schmaltz, but it's hollow at best. Read Full Review
