This is an excitingly drawn comic that looks as spectacular as the rest of this series has up to this point. In the end, however, this story arc is pretty short (only 2 comics worth, with a one-shot mixed in) and doesn't really advance the plot of Ghost Rider or the World War Hulk plotline this story intersects with. The rest of the space is taken up with filler/reference material that comes off as a long advertisement for the movie.

Daniel Way's run on Ghost Rider was going okay. It wasn't great, sure, and was kind of sliding downward, but it was at least mediocre.

And then this happened.

Way, for some reason I certainly don't understand, decides to stop absolutely any momentum the title had going and insert Ghost Rider into Marvel's World War Hulk crossover event. Even characters in the story comment on how Blaze has absolutely no reason to be involved in the situation, but, hell, I guess Way just thought it would be cool to see a flame-skulled demon fight a big, strong, green guy.

And so that's exactly what happens. For two issues Ghost Rider fights the Hulk and then just sort of, you know, rides away. That's it. Nothing changes. Nothing is developed. Nothing is gained or learned. It's pretty much just an exercise in time wasting.

The annual also collected here is a decent, if unimportant, little issue. While not written by Way, it at least gets the story back on track after the World War Hulk tie-in/debacle.

Art this time is mainly handled by Javier Saltares (without his usual partner of Mark Texeira) and it's fine. Not bad, but certainly nothing to write home about.

Also, on a technical note, this trade is way too short. It collects issues 12, 13 and an annual. I understand Marvel is a business and that businesses exist to make money, but, a three issue trade? It's far too little bang for the buck.

This can be avoided.

Ultimately if you like Ghost Rider or the World war Hulk series you should definetly check it out I think its biggest flaw was that there wasnt enough Physical interaction between both contenders IT could have been better executed but as a ghost rider fan I am proud to own this because it has two really Nice Covers And some decently illustrated artwork overall not bad try it you might like it.

What happens when Johnny "Ghost Rider" Blaze gets caught in the middle of World War Hulk? A whole lot of nothing that's what. Apocalypse Soon finds our favorite flame-headed spirit of vengeance caught in a World War Hulk tie-in, which as you may very well guess, doesn't amount to a whole lot. While we do get a glimpse of Ghost Rider taking the Hulk on head-on, writer Daniel Way doesn't really do much with the match-up, which in itself could have been a real treat if handled correctly. In the meantime, we also meet the mysterious Mr. Eleven, who apparently will play a larger role in things yet to come. Maybe. Since the new ongoing Ghost Rider series launched with Daniel Way at the helm, the whole thing just comes off as a bore. Way has some moments of great ideas here and there, but it always seems like the guy is holding back, just like he did with Wolverine. There's more solid artwork from series vets Javier Saltares and Mark Texiera, but once again, Ghost Rider fails to do anything substancial. All in all, if for some reason you've enjoyed Way's run on Ghost Rider thus far, Apocalypse Soon will offer you more of the same, which for the rest of us, already informs us to leave it on the shelf.
