Cosmic Ghost Rider is back, baby! But with a reputation like his, it’s only a matter of time before the law catches up to the future Frank Castle and tries to put him in chains – too bad for the law, chains are Castle’s weapons of choice these days. Now in an intergalactic prison, the Rider is going to turn his cage into an all-out cage match! Who’s going to be the last alien standing?! Find out in this all new miniseries from Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum (MARVEL’S SPIDERMAN: CITY AT WAR) and Scott Hepburn (DEADPOOL)! Plus – Don’t miss out on a brand new short story from the guys who started it all, Donny Cates (ABSOLUTE CARNAGE) and Geoff Shaw (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY)!
AIPTThis is a great fresh start for the character after a wild ride of miniseries have been taking up the brunt of his last year of storytelling. It’s nice to see the character move on from his previous missions for something new and it’s in good hands with Hallum and Hepburn. Add to this a backup by Cates and Shaw that seems to be putting a period on the character and this is an excellent new direction for the character.
Comics: The GatheringDonny Cates' bonus story at the end makes this worth the price of admission. It's fortunate then that Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider is a great story, helped by stunning art. I look forward to the next part of this story. Following the initial Cosmic Ghost Rider run we’ve needed a good solo story featuring him and I think this could be it.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsREVENGE OF THE COSMIC GHOST RIDER #1 does a good job of catching up old fans of the Frank Castle spin on Ghost Rider as well as introducing him to new readers. Dennis Hopeless Hallum tells a fun introductory tale to the mini, and Scott Hepburns art style absolutely fits. Even the backup story doesnt detract from the issue. Aficionados of Punisher, Ghost Rider, and the combination of both should feel anything but hopeless about this series after issue number one.
ComicBook.comRevenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider knows it has a lot of history behind this version of Frank Castle and leans heavily into that background superbly. Pretty much all of Ghost Rider's quips land well as his actions and words feel true to character, and the punishments he doles out come frequently enough that there's hardly a dull moment. The powers of the Cosmic Ghost Rider and the hero's spectacular transformations lend themselves to impressive displays already, and Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider thankfully didn't squander those—or any—opportunities.
