Not only is it great to have Tony Moore back drawing Venom, but he’s also back in the world of the Ghost Rider! Moore drew 3 excellent issues of Jason Aaron’s run and he’s a perfect fit for a story like this which is all about Hell. This crossover looks like being a lot of fun, mainly because it’s featuring characters who are at best B-Listers, so it has more freedom to change things up. I’ve personally been following 3 of the 4 characters in Venom, Rulk and Ghost Rider, so all of that was familiar to me. X-23 was the only one that I came to with very little knowledge, but her scenes were really strong too. These characters may not seem to be an obvious fit for a team-up but Remender does well to bring them all together in Las Vegas in a way that makes sense and draws some interesting connections between them all. So we get stuff like Venom and Rulk both following military rankings, and, most interestingly, the story focuses on souls, Ghost Rider of course has the ability to remove souls, and X-23 is worried about whether she, as a clone even has one. Blackheart is a villain I don’t have much experience with, but he’s certainly a threat that should challenge these characters. If you turned your nose up at this, think again, yes these characters may be some of modern comics’ worst excesses, but they’re a lot of fun.
