    Moon Knight #4 was another extraordinary issue by Huston and Finch. These two gentlemen make an excellent team. I hope that Marvel keeps these two guys together on Moon Knight for a good long time. Right now, Moon Knight is one of the Top 5 books that Marvel is publishing. If you don't mind a dark and violent comic then give Moon Knight a try. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, Huston and Finch have used this book to succesfully reclaim the character of Moon Knight from near-obscurity, providing a rebuttal to those who have unfairly pegged him as little more than Marvel's rip-off of Batman, and giving him a compelling backstory which promises to add some much-needed depth to a book which needs such a streak of originality if it's to succeed in an already overcrowded marketplace. If you can stomach the relentless seriousness of the writer's take on the character (the recap page is almost laughably po-faced and "gritty"), this is quite a decent dark superhero book. I just can't help but feel that it's time we saw a little more of Moon Knight in action. Read Full Review

    In The End: Not the worst story I've ever read, but I wish Huston would pick things up a bit. Still, the dialogue was fun and there was a certain mind screw element to the issue that was kind of fun. I'm certain that once this story arc is finished, and I go back and read it all at once, my opinion of the pace will change. On a month to month basis though, and this is a monthly book, it feels like I'm not getting my money's worth and unlike some other comics, there isn't enough to make me go, "Wow, I can't wait for that next issue." Still, there is something to be said for someone willing to take a chance and make Moon Knight cool, and as soon as this first story is over, I have a feeling I'll be less uptight with my feelings towards the writing.
