Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore bring this arc to a fiery close. Though we’ve been building up to this point, Issue #5 takes the cake as my favorite thus far.
As Grumpy deals with the abandonment of his own crew, Dr. Zabbos and his militia find him. Dr. Zabbos unleashes Mr. Hyde and now Hillrock Heights is the warzone for these two monsters. Robbie has every opportunity to be the hero, but how far will he go with his power?
Since we have the point of views for this arc from three different sides, it’s hard to see the amount of character development we usually crave, but what Smith’s main strength is in writing Robbie is emphasizing the kind of person he is with his brother in comparison to the person he turns into when he changes. Robbie is still trying to make sense of what’s happening to him, but we still get a strong, meaningful bond and balance between the elements of innocence in his life and the elements of corruption.
Tradd Moore continues to do amazing art with Val Staples and Ester Sanz, coloring. This issue wasn’t only action-packed, but beautifully gruesome. Ghost Rider is so visually stylistic, it’s easily formed its own identity in the current run of comic books. Fire, monsters, and East LA. This art team has definitely got it locked down.
Its a great all-encompassing issue that helps define this current run on Ghost Rider as it carries both this dark temptation to power and a great sense of heroism. With just the right amount of sweetness, this arc finale proved to be something both entertaining and fun.

All-New Ghost Rider 05
Let me tell you about this panel. I fucking flipped shit when I saw this because Goddam the little details in this comic are amazing. I was overwhelmed with nostalgia of Mexican corn on the cob. Its been years since I have had it.
For readers who don’t know, it is common in parts of California to see Mexican push carts along the streets of neighborhoods selling foods like these. For about a dollar you can buy a Mexican corn on the cob. What they are, is a steamed ear of corn covered in mayo, dried cheese (usually parmesan), butter or margarine spray, and salt and chili. They are amazing and simple to make! Thank you Felipe Smith for including this. You made my day.
Had to do it! Gotta represent LA! Glad you appreciate the elotes!
