    Overall, Cosmic Ghost Rider‘s debut feels like a space western, something we have never seen Frank Castle in, and it is off to a good start. The stories by Phillips are action packed and astounding. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story which shows a Frank that we are not used to, and a welcome change.

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 1, 2023

    I'm reading for more Cosmic Ghost Rider, and given the pieces put in place, Cabal and Phillips have a surefire hit on their hands here. While the main story is a bit slow to the punch, the twist is compelling, and it'll be interesting to see how this future Frank Castle continues to evolve and grow. Read Full Review

    Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 resurrects one of the weirder characters of the Marvel Universe with a promising start to a mystery about a killer who may or may not be Frank Castle. Juann Cabal's art is fantastic, and Phillips lays a solid foundation for an intriguing story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Mar 2, 2023

    COSMIC GHOST RIDER #1is a promising start to a new Marvel ongoing that promises mystery and the ever enticing setting of a 'Western Space Opera'. However, it is skimpy on character history details that may be difficult for any new readers jumping into the character for the first time. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 1, 2023

    Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 isn't a bad start but the issue feels a little short and could have used some more pages. Where the main story cuts off and where it leaves readers is a little frustrating and jarring. Hopefully, it smooths out with the second issue but as a whole, while there's potential here, the comic overall doesn't quite have the hook it could have. Read Full Review

    Readers need to know the point and purpose of the series (or at least the vague idea) in the first issue. We get nothing but dream after dream. Whos after Frank and why? Is it Kral and if so who is he? Did the Cosmic Ghost Rider actually do something to the Sakaarans or not? Is someone really using a magical gem to attack his dreams or not? The issue is too vague to affirm anything. I love the Cosmic Ghost Rider. I wanted to like this. And part of me still kind of does. However, I dont know if my desire for the Comic to do well mixed with my appeal for the character is outweighing what is actually on the pages this week. Read Full Review
