About my first issues of GHOST RIDER and WOLVERINE:
So I expected (Jason Aaron's) take on Ghost Rider to be worth reading. But I was wrong. It's far more than just "worth reading." With Ghost Rider #20, Jason Aaron has planted his flag in the Marvel Universe and said, "I will kick your ass with greatness."
Jason Aaron has recast Ghost Rider into what it always promised to be: a badass southern grindhouse rock opera with a demonic angel on a flaming chopper. He's thrown in switchblade nurses and ghouls on the road. He's escalating the comic into something great. And you should start reading it, now.
– Timothy Callahan, author of GRANT MORRISON: THE EARLY YEARS
This isn’t so much a review as it is a public service announcement: for everyone, like me, that thinks Jason Aaron’s The Other Side and Scalped have identified him as one of the best new writers in comics today… and who were just appalled by the idea of him wasting his time on Ghost Rider… well, the plain and simple fact is that we didn’t know what the #@$! we were talking about...(The) plotting is intriguing, the dialog is whip-smart, the supporting cast expertly drawn, and the humor ghoulishly funny... Whether you like Ghost Rider or not is irrelevant here: if you like black-hued supernatural adventure, or if you love Scalped, or if you just want to read the best new voice in mainstream comics today, you’ve got to check out Ghost Rider.

Until a few minutes ago, I had never, in my entire life, read a good Ghost Rider comics... (Jason Aaron's Blaze is) basically Howard Beale by way of Sonny Barger. If that doesn't sound like a pretty amazing subject for a story, well I can't do nothing for you... It's just a great read and look, it got me all pumped up. About friggin' Ghost Rider.

"An overwrought exercise in pomp and pyrotechnics..."
-- Entertainment Weekly
My editor pointed out that I shouldn't be bummed about the Entertainment Weekly review, since "pomp and pyrotechnics" were pretty much exactly what we were going for.
Scalped creator Jason Aaron returns to Wolverine with issue #62, and it really, really caught me off guard. I absolutely did not expect to like this issue as much as I did... If there's a tinge of the negative in Wolverine #62, it's only that Jason Aaron isn't the new regular writer for the book. He displays a fundamental understanding of the characters and really tells a great opening part to his arc.
Aaron writes the crap out of Wolverine and his Mystique isn’t just an off-again, on-again X-Man, but a viable threat and a crafty killer that can get the better of a guy who can smell her a mile off! The issue has a great self-contained mystery written for smart readers and a cliffhanger that’ll guarantee your purchase of the next, and still features the amazing visuals that the clawed X-Man is known for with Ron Garney doing his best work to date.
– Wizard Universe
Add Jason Aaron to the list of X-writers returning these characters to what they do best as individuals and ensembles. Garney's artwork serves the story well depicting world hopping action and stark violence in clean story-telling style.
