    Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #2continues to surprise me by blending the lowest forms of comedy with a heartfelt tale of redemption and atonement. Read Full Review

    This title knows exactly what it needs to be and it executes it perfectly. While it continues to be void of substance, it's damn entertaining at the very least. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Apr 3, 2019

    That professionalism, unfortunately, doesnt save what is ultimately a meaningless exercise. At the end of the day, this book doesnt so much destroy Marvel history as it does dilute the Marvel brand. If youre jonesing for the adventures of Cosmic Ghost Rider, skip this one and check out the current run of Guardians of the Galaxy instead. Read Full Review

    Maybe a bit more 'Cosmic Ghost Rider' and less 'Marvel History' next time... Read Full Review

    While I still have some problems with why this series exists, I did think Giovannetti and Scheer did I great job of retelling some key events in Spider Man’s story, especially the airport scene from JMS’s Amazing Spider Man. Some of the jokes were funny and the art was ok, but honestly a solid retelling.

    I appear to be the sole occupant of the bit of the Venn diagram where "Cosmic Ghost Rider irreverence" meets "obsessive 20th-century Marvel continuity wanking." I'm a fan of Todd Nauck's art, too. But even I can see the premises beginning to fall apart here; the writers have spun up too many plates and the ones further away from the core "CGR cracks wise in historical flashbacks" mission are wobbling in a way that probably can't be fixed.

    This has probably been the biggest disappointment this year so far.
    The story is terrible, u literally have him going back in time, and he just visits relatives and tells stories? What a joke

    What bothers me most about this issue is that the majority of the stories it is referencing happen after Frank Castle's family is killed. How Cosmic Ghost Rider apparently knows all this intimately without actually being able to experience it yet is a big question that I don't think is going to be answered. I know this will all just be undone somehow by the end of this story, but at least have some consistency. I mean, the same thing happened last issue but it wasn't nearly as apparent to me as this was because the Punisher is directly tied with Spider-Man. He first appeared in Spider-Man. You're flying too close to the sun with this one. This series is basically the equivalent of talking about old comics with your friends and joking about more
