    There's a lot going on in this book. It is intense, it is edge-of-your-seat type stuff, and Benson continues to deliver. There's a lot of psychological stuff happening here, especially with the constant back and forth as to whether or not Marc is really crazy. It's rather compelling actually, and Benson does a great job keeping every relationship as tense as the next. This is a book that you should be reading. Huston and Benson are putting together one of the best runs on Moon Knight in a really long time, and I hope this trend continues. Read Full Review

    Basically, everything good about this book stems from the main character himself. As such, my problems with the book pertain mostly to the supporting cast. Take ex-girlfriend Marlene, for instance. She was present for Marc's face-wearing dance party, and understandably ran off screaming into the night. Now she comes crawling back hoping she can "patch things up" with her psycho boyfriend. Then there's that one mysterious guy who looks like Dale from King of the Hill. Why is he still around? What was his purpose in the first place? I've never been able to figure that out. I'm also not too big on the current villain. Between this arc and the recent "Midnight Sun," I fear the writers are resurrecting old villains for no other reason than because they can. Moon Knight is great and all, but when he doesn't have two worthy supporting characters to rub together, the book becomes stagnant pretty quickly. Read Full Review
