Ghost Rider continues it’s strong run of strong standalone stories with this creepy tale set in a swamp. Rob Williams crafts a strong story here, that develops Alejandra as a character and also packs a punch with it’s (sort of) twist ending. I was really quite shocked when Ghost Rider decapitated Earl. Williams really is tackling the Ghost Rider’s role as ‘The Spirit Of Vengeance’ head on, and is examining what Vengeance means, and what it costs, both in this issue and the previous one. It’s annoying that this book is going to end soon, but I do hope that Alejandra sticks around as GR beyond the ending, she’s an interesting character, and one that complements Johnny Blaze in some ways. Speaking of Blaze, where is he? In the first arc of this book he was probably even more of a protagonist than Alejandra, but now he’s just disappeared. I should also mention Dalibor Talajic’s artwork, which was suitably atmospheric, I’ve liked his work since he filled in on Immortal Iron Fist, so good to see him again.
