Moon Knight has been an eyesore to the Initiative, and he's about to pay the price. With Tony Stark forced onto the sidelines, Norman Osborn has been tapped to bring in the fugitive super hero -- by all means necessary.

    Artwork: Mark Texiera's artwork and painted style continues to impress. Of course, after last issue I hope Mike Deodato takes over when Texiera moves on, but you will not find me complaining one bit regarding Tex's art. It's consistent, detailed, keeps perfectly in line with the tone of the story and Benson's style of writing. I'm really excited to see Tex's interpretation of the Thunderbolts and given the way he highlights the action during fight scenes, I can't wait for Moon Knight to do battle with the Thunderbolts.This is yet another fantastic installment of this series, the writing is top notch, the artwork fits perfectly in line with what is taking place and the coming storm should prove to make one hell of a great read. "The Death of Marc Spector" may be just that: he'll have to do what he has to do in order to continue his crusade as Moon Knight. Read Full Review

    Now that I'm caught up on Moon Knight, I find myself looking forward to this arc. I never considered myself to be a fan of the character, but, depending on how things turn out, I just might need to change my mind. I know Moon Knight and the Thunderbolts are pretty low on the Marvel totem pole, but give this one a shot. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Read Full Review

    If you were also suckered into Moon Knight #21 by the high-profile guest stars and loaded title, you might be a little upset to find that most of the action is being held for a later date. However, you're still treated to a dark, gritty crime-flavored story that holds the promise of much better days ahead for the book. Read Full Review

    Just like metal, Moon Knight is a harsh experience but it can also be exhilarating and cathartic. I'm giving this heavy metal book 3.5 bullets. I'd give it four but I can't get past the mullet. (10 points if you get that joke.) Read Full Review

    If that's the level of wit we can expect from even an "Entourage" writer, then I'm not looking forward to more. Read Full Review
