    As a die-hard Moon Knight fan, you wont find any complaints here from me. As a die-hard action fan, you wont find any complaints either. And finally as someone who appreciates a great story, still no complaints. Since taking over this title, Mike Benson has completely changed the quality and depiction of the character. Each issue brings a new dynamic to the table and keeps this book's pulse pounding. Read Full Review

    While this arc offers a compelling, if not terribly creative tale, the real selling point for me is the art. I absolutely love Jefte Palo's style. It carries a stronger superhero flair than might be immediately apparent. Characters display a fluid sense of motion, and detail is sacrificed to generate mood. I do dislike some of Palo's figure work, particularly with the overly masculine lead female character, but on the whole I think he's a great fit for this book and its new surroundings. If you've forgotten all about Moon Knight in recent months, now would be a good time to jump back on and see what the current creative team has to offer. Read Full Review

    The recent "Death of Marc Spector" arc cleared the way for a new kind of "Moon Knight" comic, and Mike Benson has started to take advantage of the opportunity to tell stories that feel different from the ones that came before. Unfortunately, they are just generic crime stories, and that's barely an improvement. Read Full Review
