    David Finch's art is just fantastic. Absolutely beautiful. Finch perfectly captures the proper feel of Moon Knight. Finch's art creates a wonderful darkness and a gorgeous somber tone. Finch does a great job shouldering the burden of Huston not using much dialogue. That puts a lot of pressure on the artist to convey the words and emotions through their art. And Finch comes through in a huge way. Then last 6 pages, Finch's art sucks the reader into Marc Spector's emotionally unstable universe. Well done. Read Full Review

    As you can tell, I didnt reveal details of the story. And I did so on purpose. I am not going to ruin anything about this issue. This is an issue that needs to be read to be enjoyed and not have key points spoiled. You can tell that everyone involved has put their all into this book. They also have me doing something that I havent done in a very long time: Buying a brand new Marvel comic AND recommending it highly! Read Full Review

    The brilliance of this issues setup is that the story can go anywhere from here: the reader knows Moon Knight will don the cowl again, but how he gets there, and what challenges await, are a complete mystery. Moon Knight #1 is a solid introduction to the character, and more importantly, leaves a reader begging to learn what happens next. Read Full Review

    Its a very promising start for a comic which I had absolutely no interest in before, but this first issue has ensured that Ill be back for more in future. Read Full Review

    So the series gets off to a good start. There could have been more to it. Its basically a long fight scene and Moon Knight crawling around his home. But in these days of multi-part stories, well have to accept this as the norm. Its a good starting point. Hopefully the second issue can carry the ball. Read Full Review

    Theres potential here, but the overwhelming feeling I get from this comic is that the creators either dont see that potential, or dont care to explore it, content instead to just play up the least distinct and most obvious aspects of the character. When youre launching a new title featuring a C-list character, youve got to do more than merely depend on similarities to other, more popular, characters, and the residual affection earned by a better series published years ago. House of Ideas, my bottom. Read Full Review

    Final Thoughts: "But please, let me be a hero again." It's great to see Moon Knight back in publication, but this just doesn't work. The lack of an introduction to the character, as well as the lack of a central plot leaves a lot missing. However, Finch's art more then makes up for it. Still, I recommend this only for the most devout fans of the character. I'll stick around another issue, but I have my doubts over the quality of it. Read Full Review
