His name could have been Amlah6 and this still would have been an enjoyable issue.

This isn't so much a review but I just wanted to talk about the book.

amlah it's neat that you compared it to grindhouse movies cause I just did the same over at 'rama. Here's that post:

This issue was FREAKING FANTASTIC. Tony Moore's art was perfectly creepy and sick and Jason Aaron's writing was an engaging romp through the horrors of Americana. This is pretty much everything a Ghost Rider book SHOULD be; an exploitative, grindhouse-style action/horror movie. Aaron has been masterfully reveling in absurdity, while eschewing the pitfalls of 'lol-it's-a-comic-book' irony.

And again, Tony Moore's art was mind blowing. As soon as I saw Danny I was hoping for a face-melting transformation and this dude FuCKING DELIVERED big time; it was like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark but more awesome. The Highwayman's rig looked like a Cronenberg effect and my fingers felt sticky with the blood of his victims.

It is too damn bad that this book has failed to find a wide enough audience. If I were Marvel I'd just start throwing bags of money and hookers at Jason Aaron and beg him stay.

I'll do my best to get a review in this week. I've actually read teh last couple of picks but have been so distracted that I keep forgetting to post a review. Look forward to this week's book, and being a bit of a britpop hipster douche, I can't wait for next week's book. Suck it, Yoni.

... so I read Phonogram #1 Pull Shapes. Ehhh, I loved the art, but the the content was not my thing... I think this is the first time a comic made me feel very uncool (not that I am that cool to begin with). Lots of indie-rock references that went over my head. Maybe #2 will be different.
