    Benson has so much momentum going into the "Death of Marc Spector" arc. This title is action-packed, perfectly balanced between characterization and mind-boggling plot, and so well-done that anyone not reading it is really missing out on one of Marvel's consistently outstanding books.

    So will this be the issue that turns things around for Moon Knight? I doubt it. No matter how well he's written, he's still a derivative character with a dull supporting cast and a lousy rogues gallery. But this issue, at least, is worth picking up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 16, 2008

    A huge draw of this issue is a guest stint by Mike Deodato, Jr. on art. I was admittedly worried about the actual quality of the pencils. Marvel has been throwing a lot of work at Deodato lately, despite the huge delays on Thunderbolts. The final issue of Thunderbolts felt rushed, and I was worried this issue would to. Luckily, Deodato is in fine form. His work is extremely moody and detailed – a perfect fit for Moon Knight all around. His rendition of Jack Russell in particular is amazing. I know Marvel has bigger plans for the artist these days, but I'd certainly welcome a longer tenure on the book. It would help me forgive a lot of the flaws that are sure to crop up as Benson returns to writing full-length arcs. You've come a long way, Moonie, but you're not there yet. Read Full Review

    This comic has a lot going on, and even if Benson's script falls short more often than not, there are a few Deodato images that make it worth a glance. If you decide to buy it, at least you get a lot of pages for your four bucks. Read Full Review
