    At this point, the multiple-personalities-are-Avengers shtick is still teetering into gimmick territory, but if Bendis plays up the character commentary angle and genuinely uses them to good effect, we could be looking at a definitive -- if different – take on Moon Knight. Read Full Review

    Well written a beautifully drawn, but I'm not a fan of how Bendis executed this (admittedly very creative) take on Spector's multiple personalities. I have a feeling this is only a slight hiccup however (at least I hope that's the case) and will be back on track shortly. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jun 5, 2011

    Maleev conveys the several-heroes-in-one-form premise pretty well. The coloring motif struck me as a little odd. When the action unfolds, Spider-Man and the main antagonist in this issue, a woman named Snapdragon (am I supposed to recognize her?), are bathed in shades of red while others around them. I don't really get the effect. It doesn't really add to the mood of the scene, and when other characters are cast in darkness, it makes it a little difficult to follow the action. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed the first issue of "Moon Knight," which had a lot of potential and was taking a distinctly different route than most superhero books. Different setting, a fun twist, and a nice layer of subtlety. "Moon Knight" #2 just feels like an average superhero comic that brings nothing new to the table. If at all possible, let's go back to the former rather than the latter, please. Read Full Review

    Part of the appeal for Moon Knight, to me at least, was his established supporting cast, his base of operations, the touch of mysticism from the god Khonshu. None of that is here, and he's apparently crazier than ever, which perceptive people like Steve Rogers, Sharon Carter, and the Black Widow don't notice. Ok. Whatever. Two issues is, I think, the shortest run I've ever given a book about a character I like, but I'm just not interested in this take on things. Not wild about the art, either- the strippers are plotting their evil in front of a background of random green and white swirly something or others, what they are? Dunno. Don't care. I'm done.
