SHADOWLAND TIE-IN! When the Spirit Of Vengeance is summoned to the front lines of the battle for the soul of New York, Ghost Rider finds himself a pawn in a larger game, and if he wants his freedom back he's going have to head for Japan and take on the might of The Hand where its power is strongest - in its home base. But in the far east, he’ll find everyone's afraid of something... even the Ghost Rider. Parental Advisory …$3.99

    This was a fantastic one-shot, and continues the trend of Shadowland mini-series/one-shots being surprisingly (in some cases) entertaining and enjoyable. Of some of the tie-ins thus far, I think this is probably one of the most important to read, given what Ghost Rider does here, and what other possible actions he might take in the rest of the main Shadowland mini-series. You should take a chance on this one, it's a fantastic read with gorgeous artwork, a truly entertaining and enjoyable one-shot. Highly Recommended! Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 16, 2010

    This is just a fantastic issue from page one. The art is the main attraction and this is easily the best work from Clayton Crain that I've seen yet. His Ghost Rider leaps from every page and is a moment in and of itself everytime he is on page. On top of the art, we get a great story showing insights into Ghost Rider's character and how he will not be a slave to anyone, even if it kills him. Great done in one story that nails the character in every way. Read Full Review

    If you, like me, had a slow week and have a spare $3.99 then here is a good place to spend that money. This issue succeeded as a fun tie-in, a great read and an awesome story for the character. Shadowland Ghost Rider is a must have for Ghost Rider fans and a great tie-in to what is an otherwise lack-luster event. I give this one a high recommendation to everyone, old fans and new, to discover one of my favorite Marvel heroes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Sep 20, 2010

    Overall, it's a reasonably decent issue, and an enjoyable outing for Ghost Rider. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it's cool enough and seems to know what it's doing. Decent script, decent art, and it's got Ghost Rider parked on a whale. If you want any more than that out of a Ghost Rider comic, you're probably backing the wrong horse. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Robert Tacopina Sep 20, 2010

    As a one-shot goes this issue served its purpose by actually providing the reader with some additional information. Though one must take into consideration that the only truly relevant bit pertains to the hows and whys of Ghost Rider's participation with Fisk. Otherwise this is definitely a stand alone, take it or leave it tie in book that for all intents and purposes that will mainly be enjoyed by completists or extreme Ghost Rider fanatics.

    The funny thing about Shadowland is that I've only gotten to read the tie-ins without getting the chance to read a single issue of the main storyline. Read Full Review
