    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 6, 2016

    It's no secret how much I love Moon Knight as a character. While he's placed in a situation that calls his sanity into question, you can't help but get pulled into Jeff Lemire's story. The feeling of mystery amps up the tension of the story. Greg Smallwood's art and Jordie Bellaire's colors are absolutely gorgeous. This is what I want my Moon Knight comics to look and feel like. I can't get enough of this series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Jul 11, 2016

    Moon Knight #4 is another fantastic issue in the young series. Jeff Lemire, Greg Smallwood, and Jordie Bellaire allow the book to question at every level whether what Marc sees or the Marvel Universe is real, or if it even matters. The creative team is clicking on all cylinders, with the art and words complimenting each other to serve the issue. And just when it seems that the story might be getting repetitive, a final-page reveal calls everything into question. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Richard Bishop Jul 14, 2016

    For a book outside the "mainstream" Marvel Universe of mega-crossovers and Deadpool guest appearances, this one is incredibly satisfying, and I'm more impressed by this title month after month. Jeff Lemire continues to work the "is Knight insane or not" angle masterfully, giving glimpses that either side of the argument might be the right answer, and Greg Smallwood's art is appropriately dark and foreboding, mirroring the sense of despair that Mr. Knight and his fellow escapees are feeling. Dialogue is kept to a minimum, as Lemire lets Smallwood's pencils tell the story, but what is spoken, particularly from Khonshu, propels the story forward nicely. Lastly, the gorgeous cover, showing an embracing Marc and Marlene, is worth the price of the book alone. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jul 7, 2016

    Moon Knight #4 takes an already enjoyable story about subjective reality and cranks the dial, resulting in an issue that, by its close, will leave youanxiously waiting for the next instalment. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 11, 2016

    After how much I loved the first three issues, this one took a step back, but it was a miniscule step. There were some awesome moments, but the stuff in between those moments was a little dull. The cliffhanger brought it back up for me, and I can't wait for #5. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 11, 2016

    While shocking to longtime fans, Frenchie's death does raise the stakes of Spector's current predicament as well as take away another key resource to help keep Moon Knight grounded and reign him in when necessary. It will be interesting to see what becomes of Marlene now as she could be the last anchor point for Marc outside of Khonshu's influence. Killing her would leave Marc untethered leading the comic into several possible stories involving Marc's inability to differentiate visions and reality. Or does writer Jeff Lemire plan to increase the woman's importance by having Marlene step into Frenchie's shoes as more of Margo Lane type sidekick for all the crazy action yet to come? I guess we'll have to wait and see. Worth a look. Read Full Review
