At least the series won't be delayed due to late art.

Although not an avid Ghost Rider fan, I'm not sure about the new look of character.

Tradd Moore is MURDERING these pages. I haven't checked out Luther Strode yet, but i really liked Moore's art in the issue of Zero he penciled. Can't wait for this book to come out.

I'm a fan of Tradd Moore's art, but he can't draw fire. This Ghost Rider looks like it has plumes of orange and yellow hair.

Still not sure about this one? art is great (huge strode fan) but I can't stop thinking that the new GR look is a little too meh

I'm not feeling the helmet look. The fact that he's driving a car is cool though. The motorcycles were really Johnny and Danny's thing.

I'm with Jonny on this one. It may not be the most realistic depiction of flames, but Moore's art is highly stylized. I would say the "flames" convey the right feel and add to the overall aesthetic.

New Ghost Rider, different Person

I like it except the faces are far too comedic, might need to put my finger over them while I read important stuff

I do not like that design...whats so wrong with just a burning skull? And why get rid of the motorcycle just to get a car? If they wanted to do something alot different they should do like a western where ghost rider has a horse...that would make more sense to his character.

Because Johny Blaze is already out there driving a bike, what's the point in doing it again? Also a cowboy Ghost Rider has been done.

All the Ghost Rider I need is in Thunderbolts. Maybe someday Johnny will get another shot at his own series. This is way too soon after the last attempt to make another Ghost Rider work bombed.

I've liked the look of this Ghost Rider in every artistic style I've seen him... Except for the main cover/interiors. Which is a shame, because I immensely enjoyed the Luthor Strode art.

I wish they would write a story where Ketch becomes a rider again and other then Blaze there are no more Ghost Riders. It kind of cheepin' Danny and Johnny's character to make controlling a ghost rider no big deal all over the world with each country having it's own rider.
