It's the city that never stops! Welcome to Transverse City, where everything's for sale-if you're fast enough to take it!
Kenshiro "Zero" Cochrane was just your average keyboard cowboy until he shocked with the wrong people and got murdered-life's a glitch, ain't it?
Now, with a second chance from a higher power and an advanced weaponized automaton, Zero will punish those who have spilled innocent blood!

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 3, 2019

    As another 2099 standalone issue, I had fun with this story. It's low stakes since it doesn't require you read other 2099 stories and it essentially offers an origin story for a new kind of Ghost Rider. Who doesn't want a Terminator-style Ghost Rider complete with a flame saw? Nod your head and run tot he comic store because we all know the answer to that! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Dec 7, 2019

    A good issue that totally stands on its own, until it doesn't. This is good, but if it would've been self-contained, it would've been great. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Dec 4, 2019

    If you're looking for a Marvel comic to entertain you without needing background, I suggest this comic. It's a good new take on the Ghost Rider origin story with flairs of cyberpunk and retro action flicks. It's one of the best of the new 2099 books and may have built the coolest new character.

    GWW - Deron Generally Dec 4, 2019

    Damian Couceiro does some great things with the visuals in this issue and the brutality is perfectly suited for the type of story being told. Visually, this issue catches the eye with great looking details and a sense of movement that captures the tone and theme. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 21, 2019

    Ghost Rider 2099 gives us an idea of what we could expect from Marvel's spirit of vengeance in 80 years. It introduces a number of cool concepts that I'd love to see explored further. There's just enough here to sink your teeth into, but it's more of an appetizer than a main course. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Luke Corona Dec 8, 2019

    Ghost Rider 2099 is corny in all the best ways. If you are missing some classic Sci-Fi in your life, make sure to check it out Read Full Review

    The book deliver about as much as excitement as possible with its concept, though the premise is inherently flawed, likely only appealing to a certain subset of readers. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Dec 4, 2019

    Bites off too much in the first issue but the colorwork does help to add a sense of atmosphere. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Dec 4, 2019

    I continue to be unimpressed with these 2099 books and am confused with who the target audience is. Its certainly not me and while I had hopes for Ghost Rider 2099, that hope went unfulfilled. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 3, 2019

    If anything, one can only hope this series can inspire some readers to go through their dollar bins to find the truly incredible storytelling on display from Kaminski and Bachalo, because unfortunately they won't find it in the new modern take on Ghost Rider 2099. Read Full Review
