    Moon Knight is Marvel's "unsung title." Since Benson took the reins, it has become one of the best written books that is on the shelves today. Benson knows these characters, and it really seems as though he is a natural when it comes to writing comics. This story-arc has been nothing short of phenomenal. While I love his work on Moon Knight, I really hope he gets the opportunity to work with other characters in the Marvel Universe. However, he won't be taking any breathers as Moon Knight goes up again Werewolf by Night next issue, followed by a six-part battle with the Thunderbolts. Seriously, if you aren't reading this book, start doing so and get the back issues, it's well worth the money. This is my advance Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    Still, it must be said that Moon Knight is in a better place than it was prior to this arc. Benson is well-suited to the series, channeling Charlie Huston's noir-flavored dialogue without its sillier aspects. And the art from Mark Texeira and Javier Saltares has grown on me with each issue. Though the series really should have fallen into its groove by now, I think the potential is still there. One of these days we'll find out for sure. Read Full Review
