    Jason Aaron's "Ghost Rider" has always been an entertaining read. But as he and Tony Moore expand its mythology even further while simultaneously bringing it back down to the "real" world (well, realer than monasteries and the gates of heaven at least), this book has transformed itself into not just one of the Marvel Universe's better titles, but quite possibly its best.

    This is an excellent point to hop on-board if you've been thinking about giving Ghost Rider a shot. Most of what you need to know in order to get caught up is on the recap page, and from there you can just dive right in to the Ghost Rider Legacy Goodness. Surely I'm not the only one craving a Tales of the Ghost Riders anthology series, am I? Read Full Review

    In the end, with its Sara-centered story, Ghost Rider #33 properly fulfills its promise to cast the series into a new and interesting direction. And with the status quo shaken to its core, the fallout from last month's climax is indisputably more interesting than the event itself. Not only is this a good jumping on point for new readers, but also a fantastic follow up for longtime fans, as Aaron continues to showcase his ability to keep a book consistently readable.

    Overall, we get a pretty decent tale setting us up for some more angels vs. demons/wars in heaven and hell tales that could prove to be worth the read, at least for its escapist fun. Milton might frown on his readers and admirers for reading such trifles but, hey, hes the one who go us hooked on Satan, his rebel angels and their wars in the first place. Tony Moores pencils are definitely not Gustave Dores woodcarvings, but they are incredibly detailed as far as the Ghost Riders of different time periods go, but hes better at conjuring images of fancy than true to life human faces. For a series thats all about the fanciful, he pulls off the fancy, but leaves the rest lacking. A decent if not literary loaded read, but all comics cant be Watchmen can they? Or Paradise Lost for that matter. Read Full Review
