I always enjoy an Orb story, and I was happy to see Luke McDonnell on the art. He’s an unsung legend of the 1980s, and this issue looks much better for his participation.
Otherwise, this is a standard issue. Orb robs a truck on a lone desert highway, and Ghost Rider goes after him.
Orb gets a new costume and tech upgrade with these exploding, guided eye bombs. But of course they’re no match for Ghost Rider…
McDonnell does a great job with that sequence. Very, very cool. Sadly, he’s just stopping by for one issue.
Also, Brent Anderson is doing the covers these days, and he’s doing a great job. The cover to this issue is one of my all-time favorites. I’d love to own the actual art.
Just in case any of you want to go buy me a present.
