THE BOTTOM PART 5 They promised Taskmaster that Marc Spector would be a sitting duck. When Taskmaster was done with his work, Spector would be battered, bruised, friendless and, most important, alone. Only one problem: Spector is not alone.

    Moon Knight #5 was an awesome read. Huston just keeps getting better and better. Huston's strong writing is perfectly complimented by Finch's art. Moon Knight is certainly one of Marvel's best titles. I hope Marvel locks up Huston to a long term contract to write this title. I fear that without Huston, this title becomes a much weaker read. Definitely check out Moon Knight. If you like dark, brooding and violent then it doesn't get any better than this. Read Full Review

    This is a book which doesn't quite seem to be getting the amount of attention that Marvel wanted, and I'm not really sure why. It's definitely adult-oriented (this gory, graphic book isn't for young kids), and it's definitely something which is at least a little bit different in a marketplace full of the generic and derivative, so you'd think it would appeal to the core comics audience pretty easily. However, as I stated at the top of the review, this is a story that won't really feel complete until the end of this first arc, so it's perhaps more likely to succeed in a collected edition. Whatever the reason, Huston & Finch's Moon Knight is worth a punt if you're on the fence about whether to invest in yet another superhero series - but most will probably wait for the TPB to check it out.

    Overall, there are several comics out this week that are far more worthy of your three bucks. But, as I said, Finchs art makes the book a solid buy despite the agonizingly slow-developing plot. The arts only going to take this series so far, though; Huston has to get the Moon Knight back in the fight for real at some point. Read Full Review
