REVIEW: ‘All-New Ghost Rider’ #5

(Marvel Comics, 2014)

Written by Felipe Smith
Artwork by Tradd Moore
Color Artwork by Val Staples
Lettering by Joe Caramagna

The latest issue of All New Ghost Rider not only brings an end to the Engines of Vengeance story arc but sadly it is also the final issue to be penciled by the dynamic and innovative, Tradd Moore. Moore is leaving to focus on his incredible (and incredibly violent) creator owned Luther Strode series with writer/ co-creator Justin Jordan. This is a crushing blow for Continue reading

Greetings from the Wasteland,

I’ve loved westerns since I was ten and Young Guns came out.  The next year Young Riders premiered on ABC and I sat rapt as Stephen Baldwin and Josh Brolin shot it out and carried the mail from town to town.  Naturally I would be drawn to cowboy comics as well, right?  Not so.  Until recently (pre-Shaolin Cowboy) it seemed to me, that most cowboy-themed comics were lame compared to the exploits of everyone’s favorite mutants and the wall-crawling exploits of Spider-Man.
