Issue Review
   March 31, 2016
While still flawed, this is a fun read and easily the best issue in this dismal period in the character's life. Great twist ending.
I wasn't taken with Stuntmaster's appearance, but - to be honest - the rest of the issue was okay.

  Dues ex machina much? Probably the most annoying way to end a comic, and it happens SO DAMN OFTEN.

  Ha! I loved the ending. A zodiacal year! This is why you don't make a deal with the devil!

  I predicted that the bad guy was Stunt-Master last issue. Kind of a coincidence that he appeared here.

  I was actually thinking that it was the crazy son from last issue. That made a deal with the devil (or whomever) to take revenge on the group that broke him, and to do it while wearing their faces.
I had fun with this issue, but the end was really weak. How was that a zodiac year just because he used the forms of people that call themselves the zodiak? So if he died without using one of their forms the demon would have not got his soul?

  Well, this one was just weird, but it still beat out all other Ghost Rider stories in the Order so far. And I thought it was pretty cool to see the Stunt-Master again; not very many D-listers I can say that about.

That ending though? I can see how it would annoy some people, but I thought it was a diabolical twist! Nothing was specified about how that year in question passed, and as @TheAmazingGatorMan said, you gotta spell it out explicitly when you're dealing with demons; they love those legal loopholes!

3 stars. So much for the Age of Aquarius.

  If you were going to sell your soul for super powers to get your revenge, why the hell would you go with the Zodiac? I'd want Avenger powers, or the Fantastic Four. You know, someone good.
