    I hope their cousin Jennifer Kale shows up and I hope we see some of the old nineties villains again (with some updates).
    Jennifer Kale is a favorite character of mine, but I don't dig the retcon that established her as a cousin of them.

    I saw she(Alejandra Blaze) was in that one shot when I flipped through it and look forward to reading it over the weekend!
    I really like the art in the book, need to see who that is.

    Regarding the carnage story, yes, we know that the spirits of vengeance lore is contradictory, but it is kind of odd that all the ghost riders of the past are in hell and not heaven if they are in fact "angels" and equally as odd that they're in hell right next to Mephisto if they are demonic in origin. That would mean there is an army of Ghost Riders in hell, with their own spot, doing what? Why wouldn't they just team up against Mephisto? Yeah Mephisto's realm etc, but they clearly carved out and niche in his realm which is impressive enough, and what's the worse case scenario? Mephisto ends their eternal torment by truly wiping their already tortured souls from existence? Mephisto sends them back to Earth? It's just weird to me. It's like if the guy that killed Bruce's parents lived next to a mansion full of Batmen.

    I really don't like multiple Ghost Riders. I don't mind if former Ghost Riders are around in other ways just not as Ghost Rider. The more they get the weaker the property becomes to me. I liked it in the 90's when Dan was Ghost Rider and Blaze showed up but he was not Ghost Rider anymore. Being the Rider did leave a mark on Blaze and he had his hellfire shotgun, and I wish they would do that more instead of just having multiple Riders running around at once. To me that is a better way to go in you can escape the Ghost Rider curse, but you are never 100% free of it.

    That was kind of what happened with Alejandra; even with Johnny taking back the Spirit of Vengeance at the end of her series, she was still scarred by hellfire and, as seen in Symbiote of Vengeance, she still retained some power from it.

    QFT, I totally agree. Those were good times.

    Beyond that, we're trying to tell an epic story that not only uses existing Ghost Rider lore, but also adds to it. We're going to be building to a giant story involving Earth and Hell and a couple other dimensions that will leave the fate of every soul in the hands of the two brothers. Things are going to get crazy, loud and very dangerous.

    Always glad to see Johnny back in action. I'll pick it up as a TP if it ends up being worth a purchase.

    I love Dan Ketch, but this didn't do much for me.

    I'm a '90s Ghost Rider kid, so I had to check this out. Maybe I'll check out the trade and see what's what then.

    I know they've stated this is going to focus on Johnny and Danny, which is great. Huge Danny fan, he was my first and still default go to Ghost Rider. Glad to see him back in action. That said I also want to eventually get Alejandra back in the mix. Given how Symbiote of Vengeance ended it is clear there are possible paths to get her back. Hopefully the series last long enough to make that happen! The three of them make a great trio for this Ghost Rider fan!

    Leave Robbie off doing his own thing, he's not even directly tied to GR lore as stated in the books. He's honorary at best with Johnny's blessing.

    I enjoyed this. Looks like Danny's gonna have to save his brother from himself.

    Looks like we are preparing for a Hell event.

    Hmmm....the Ghost Rider TV show just got canned because Feige had plans for the character. Will Robbie still be the TV Ghost Rider going forward or will Feige opt for Blaze or Ketch? He can still use Reyes but the character is more associated with Loeb due to Agents of Shield and Feige wants to deny both Loeb and his television division's existence.

    Please some help: What events led to Blaze taking over as king of hell ? What run did that happen in ? What's the last we saw of him prior to his appearance on the recent Avengers issues and this new book ?

    I want to get caught up before reading this book.

    Thanks.

    Pretty sure Blaze took over Hell in the Damnation mini.
