    Mackie's plot does take a little bit too long to get going but once it starts lurching forward, the title is quickly off to the races with exciting action set pieces to boot. Read Full Review

    It's been awhile since I have been THIS excited about comics! A scrumptious little treat for any 90s Ghost Rider fan while being an effective re-introduction to the character, something both new and older fans will enjoy. Feels more than good to see Noble Kale blazing the Brooklyn streets once more, Danny and him are the perfect team it's exciting to see the boys back together even if it's a flashback mini.

    The art is solid and does a good enough job at capturing classic horror feel the 90s run originally had.

    I was really looking forward to this. Danny Ketch was MY Ghost Rider. Just like Wally West was MY Flash and Tim Drake was MY Robin. When I first learned about buying comics at comic book shops instead of gas stations, the Mackie run of Ghost Rider had just started and it was one of THE top books every month. I highly enjoyed it and I highly enjoyed this as well. Nostalgia is one of the reasons for the higher score and I don't know if people who weren't around to experience this early 90's boom and Ghost Rider phenomenon would get it, but it's not the only reason. The book is fun to read and we get to find out about a mystery I've wondered about for years. The art even has a retro 90's feel to it. The new Broker does have a very simil more

    This is "just" an average comic, but it's the kind of average I respect…maybe even admire. The story may not be inventive, but it's thoroughly clear. The storytelling may not be spectacular, but it's consistently competent.

    The backstory recap might slow down the pace for fans of the character, but as a newcomer to the Danny Ketch years, I appreciate it.

    Whenever people talk about bad dialogue and bad writing in comics, they could always do with a shift in perspective that one can only gain by reading a comic written by Howard Mackie.
