    Solid start to a new book! While I'm a little bummed it's a Fear Itself tie-in, this issue actually works pretty well in that story, even if I don't know why Ghost Rider is there. I'm excited to see that Johnny Blaze is still a part of the book and who he will be teaming up with, and for once, I actually loved the back-up story explaining the origin of the new rider. However, the costume was something I was truly not digging and I have no clue why a skeleton body has breasts. Minor complaints aside, this is a great start to a new series. It's the perfect place to jump on and I highly recommend the issue. Read Full Review

    What do you want me to say? I despise the idea of a female Ghost Rider. We already had TWO perfectly fine Ghost Riders in Johnny Blaze, or the WAY superior Danny Ketch. Was this a bad comic book? No, not at all. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed the main story a lot, although I didn't get the origin story in the least... But seriously, what is Marvel's obsession with taking established male characters and turning them female? Read Full Review
