    The Serpent's appearance seems more like a contractual requirement to the Fear Itself event than a necessary plot point, but the story manages to side-step the hiccup on its way through its satisfying narrative stride. Given its cohesive tone and enjoyable gait, it seems, in retrospect, that this is the story that should have been presented as the first issue, with the actual issue #1 being lumped in with issue #0.1.

    I'm not overly impressed with the compulsion to seat this title on the couch of "Fear Itself," but I can understand the marketing recommendations to do so. At this point, however, there are enough characters on display that I hope they are all given a chance to impact the story. Williams has his work cut out for him and he's done a good job making Johnny Blaze a character I want to read more of. Read Full Review

    I'm torn.I like Ghost Rider, and while I like many elements of this issue, I dislikejust as many. I'm sure as the story continues, more will be revealed, andhopefully, we'll get away from the Fear Itself madness, so this story can growon its own. Read Full Review

    This comic wasn't that bad. Rob Williams did a good job of laying out the story, as well as giving us the motivations of the two major players(Mephisto and Adam). Johnny wasn't written as some sort of brain-dead hick this time around(thank god...), and the art was solid. However, I'm still not sold on the new Ghost Rider. Read Full Review
