I decided to buy this book, mainly so I could be caught up to read Jason Aaron's run on Ghost Rider. I figure it would be a decent buy considering that I rather like Daniel Way as a writer, usually, even though I'm kinda indifferent about Ghost Rider on average. What I can tell you is that this book didn't really disappoint in terms of writing. OK so the art is pretty inconsistent, but the writing is solid, and I found it rather amusing the way they portray Ghost Rider as a dirt stupid who thinks he can quip, but utterly fails.

Normally, I don't give a summary of the story in these, but with the product description not saying much, I'll just add a little extra. Basically, Johnny Blaze sold his soul, ages ago, became Ghost Rider, went on adventures, and now you enter this book with Blaze stuck in hell. He makes his way out of hell, only to find that the. somehow, devil hitched a ride along with him, and has big plans for what he will do on earth, and only Ghost Rider can stop him.

Simple enough of a story, but it works. As I said before, the writing is solid, despite the simple premise, and the delivery makes up for alot. So yeah, the book for the most part is pretty good. Not perfect but certainly worth it's price.

There are some drawbacks to the book itself, beyond artwork and storytelling. I found it a tad disappointing that I was unable to find this book in a hardcover, because as I said, I bought it to catch up on the series and read Jason Aaron's work on Ghost Rider.

Vengece is Upon You May 25 2012
By Frest Humphrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My introduction to Ghost Rider came via the two films starring Nicolas Cage, which fall squarely into `love it or hate it territory'. Though they are by no means groundbreaking films, I found myself awestruck by just how awesome Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider is as a character. He's quite different from most other superheroes; instead of flying around in spandex fighting other people in spandex, he blazes (forgive the pun) around on a flaming motorcycle dishing out pain to demons, and is easily one of the most powerful characters in the `mystical/magical' realm of Marvel's Pantheon. This series was begun about the time the first film was released, providing incoming fans like myself with the perfect way to get into the meat of the Rider and his mythos. This proves a very fun book, and succeeds in its purpose quite nicely. Johnny Blaze is well characterized here, and Daniel Way has a firm grasp on the Jekyll and Hyde dynamic of the Rider and Blaze. Blaze's past is also layed out quite well for people who have either A. (Never read Ghost Rider before)or B. (May be more familiar with the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider from the 90's than Johnny Blaze).

The overarching story is simple, but effective, which is harder to pull off than one might think. Most of the time `simple' translates to `shallow and boring' and is thus anything but effective. Daniel Way however, kept the story alive with solid delivery, great dynamic action and a few really nice twists. Some of the support characters are done well also, such as the Sheriff in the `Sleepy Hollow' story. Others however are not so well executed, such as the brief and flatly characterized Angels, and I feel the character of Dixie had potential that was wasted (in more ways than her possible character development). When other Marvel heroes show up however, the characterization is spot on. Ghost Rider is not the most `cross over' friendly character, given that he can wipe the floor with most of the Marvel Universe. However, getting into scuffles with Dr. Strange and The Hulk was both feasible and really neat. Blaze is usually off in his own little corner and is rarely involved with others, so these encounters were great.

The art is mostly handled by Javier Saltares, and it is a perfect fit. The art has this grimy, gritty look that while I usually don't like, I honestly can't picture a character like this looking any other way. Issues 6-7 however are done by Richard Corben, and the art takes a dramatic nose dive during these two issues, with cartoony visuals that look very silly and clashed with the feel of the book in the most dramatic way possible. Ghost Rider is supposed to look creepy and horrific, and Corben did not seem to get that. However this is for only 2 issues and Saltares remains on art duties for the duration of the book afterwards.

One thing though, this book is NOT for kids. This is a very dark and violent character; Ghost Rider is for mature audiences only.

In spite of some minor problems, this is a great book, and quite a bargain (doorstopper sized omnibuses like this are usually twice the asking price here). Whether you are looking for a way to dive into Ghost Rider for the first time, or are a longtime fan of old Flame-head, this book comes highly recommended

Wild, wacky, scary, good plot arc June 8 2013
By Surferofromantica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've hardly read Ghost Rider at all since the mid-seventies when the first series was in full swing (I had a friend who was an obsessive fan and collected the entire series).

This one is pretty good, although it starts off fairly slowly. That is, it starts with a bang, but also in a way that's quite hard to follow - Ghost Rider is in Hell, he escapes with Satan, who showers the earth with 666 shards of his character, which possess that number of followers (Satan is, of course, the typical cloven-hoofed beast that has jumped right out of the Ridley Scott film Legend). There are also two silly encounters with other beings from the Marvel Universe, Doctor Strange and The Incredible Hulk (what is it about hero vs hero comics that makes them soooooo lame?), but then things pick up nicely when we see that Ghostie is getting good at out-thinking the ghouls, and he whittles them down to one. There's a useless appearance by two angels, who bring themselves into this world via immaculate conception.

Some of the stories are very good, including the one drawn by Richard Corben that has Johnny Blaze in jail with a creepy kid who's actually a senior figure in the Hell's Angels (get it) organization, and another tale recreates the legend of Sleepy Hollow with another headless horseman, this time a guy who replaces his own head with a flaming pumpkin (yes, so there are two flame-heads now). Ghost Rider destroys all of the bad guys, learns a little bit about his nature, and then rushes off to battle another rebel angel.

I like the older stuff better than the new, but I've followed Ghost Rider since the beginning so I'm not stopping now.

I found it a tad disappointing that I was unable to find this book in a hardcover, because as I said, I bought it to catch up on the series and read Jason Aaron's work on Ghost Rider. So it would have been nice if I could get a hardcover to match the book that directly follows this one. That or to be able to get Jason Aaron's Omnibus in paperback. Still, all in all that's a very minor complaint.

If you are new to Ghost Rider and want a place to start, you can certainly do alot worse than this book, here. If you like Ghost Rider, or are just considering something to read before you start on the Jason Aaron Omnibus, then either way, this is a great buy. If you're into action/horror, or occult fiction, this is for you. However if you are easily offended, or not wanting to read anything too violent, you might wanna steer clear.
