Much like Way's run to start this series, Aaron's run is much stronger in the middle than either the beginning or end. Still very good.

This is the first run of a relatively prominent Marvel character Jason Aaron was ever given, and it seems like they gave him free reign to do whatever the hell he wanted. Turns out, I really enjoy "whatever the hell Jason Aaron wants." There's so much packed into this book: Gun Nuns, a dude with an eyeball for a face, a lunatic chaos magician who I think is supposed to be making fun of Grant Morrison, massive end-of-days action violence, a sentient bulldozer, demonic truckers, cannibal ghosts.

This was ok, nothing spectacular.

Basically at the end of he Daniel way run on ghost rider he finds out his origins, who made him. He thought it was satan, turns out it's an [spolier]. He's not too happy about it and goes to defeat this person.

Cut a long story short the ghost rider isn't alone and he enlists the help of his brother and all the other ghost riders (which is pretty cool) and some nuns with guns (yep nuns) and kicks his/her's ass.

The end.

Most people think ghost rider is stupid. I th

A little background: I never understood why the devil/demon that gave Ghost Rider his powers, would want/allow him to use it for good. That just never made sense to me. Sometime before this volume, that was changed and revealed that it was actually the power of God passed through an angel. It was this angel's, Zadkiel's, responsibility to run the GR's like a "CIA black ops" team.

Well, Zadkiel turns bad and wants to take over heaven which is the basic plot thread running through the whol

Hell Bent and Heaven Bound

“You know how many people God kills in the Bible? I mean, if you add up all the floods and plagues and fire ‘n’ brimstone. All the ‘God Smote’ this, ‘God Smote’ that… you know how many people he kills? Millions. And what about the Devil? The big scary Devil. What do you think his body count comes to? A paltry TEN. The seven sons and three daughters of Job. And that’s on

I really wanted to like this volume and rate it higher, because Jason Aaron's story is the kind bizarro ride through horror and humor that fits the Ghost Rider to a T. However, the art on these issues is just horrid. Roland Boschi and Tony Moore were alright, but both have a style that is somewhat flat and bland. The real crime was Tan Eng Huat's pencils, which were exaggerated in all the wrong ways, and he kept forgetting to draw the eyes on the characters. He would draw them in one panel, but ...more

I've been reading comic books for about twenty years and I've always thought Ghost Rider was sort of stupid. I wouldn't exactly say that Jason Aaron's take on the character has dissuaded me of that notion, but the way that he glories in what's goofy about the character with a serious face is a fun read. I wish Tony Moore had done more than two issues in this collection; his cracked character designs are a highlight.

This is a brilliant take on an old character that never made a lot of sense. Given the 21st century make-over, though, with a little bit of re-definition, Aaron and con spin a yarn that's true to the character's peculiar roots while doing something new and interesting. Aaron is particularly good at developing GR's biker-exploitation roots into a brilliant millieu of weird wide-spot-in-the-road towns, haunted roads, spectral truckers and demonic gun nuts. Great fun and highly recommended!

A wild ride, from start to finish. I've heard people dismiss this as unremarkable, or just "meh," but I had a lot of fun with it. A cool story that goes throughout the entire arc (though, admittedly, the arc isn't that long). Perfectly contained in a smaller-than-average omnibus, but I think it works well. Adds a lot of ramifications for the futures of Danny Ketch, Johnny Blaze and co. Overall, lots of fun, so if you can't find the Omni go grab the complete collections!

Such a great, fun series. Aaron's run on Ghost Rider was easily the best it's ever been. There's a great grimy, grindhouse feel to it, where you can feel the DNA of John Carpenter and Robert Rodriguez and trashy late-night horror movies in there. Aaron does a great job of finally giving Blaze a personality, and he introduces some great characters, like Kid Blackheart, The Deacon, and The Orb.

Very fast read. A fun mix of supernatural, horror, and humor. The only real negative is I didn't love the art. The artists involved were plenty talented, but none of them felt quite right for the project. The writing is great though.

Around 500 pages of pure ownage in the form of a guy with a flaming skull head and his haunted motorcycle.

This is the craziest, weirdest grindhouse movie that was never made. The story is great, but the art is inconsistent.

Great story! I've always been partial to the horse-riding Ghost Rider, but this is about the best there could be with the Spirit of Vengeance.

Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama. His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi-autobiographical novel The Short-Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron. Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where h ...more
