Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars XXXIII (Ghost Racers Edition)

ghost_racers_1

Like many back in the day I was a huge Ghost Rider fan.  I grew up with the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider, but also read a lot of Johnny Blaze and the original incarnation from the 1970’s.  I lost touch with Danny and Johnny at some point after the Midnight Sons days.  I did pick up some of the “recent” mini-series written by Devin Grayson and Garth Ennis that saw Blaze return as Ghost Rider.  But that’s still like 10 years ago.  The look of the All-New All-Different Ghost Rider never grabbed me so I haven’t read any of the adventures of Robbie Reyes.  Which puts me at kind of a disadvantage as he is the main character of this book.

But in all honesty, all you really need to know is that all the Ghost Riders from across time and the multiverse have been brought to Doom’s Killiseum to entertain the masses in a kind of twisted, demonic chariot races.

After the cut I’ll look at Ghost Racers #1, Ghost Racers #2, Ghost Racers #3 and Ghost Racers #4.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Five

planet-hulk-1

I’m trying to read all the Secret Wars issues in the order they come out, but unlike what I’ve done with Convergence, I haven’t pigeon-holed myself.  Hence the title of these posts is not “Week Two, Part Two” or something similar.  Sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to jump ahead.  Out of pure curiosity, or to avoid spoilers.  It’s for that reason that this post sees a bit of a mish-mash between some of the first releases and some of the more recent.

Spoilers after the break for Planet Hulk #1, Loki: Agent of Asgard #14,  Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1 and Secret Wars: Battleworld #2.

Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com.  The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.

And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four
