    Because of that, this issue is a bit of a letdown, though it's setting the foundation for future issues. I expect things will pick up considerably next time around. Read Full Review

    Moon Knight #3 continues to be an engaging new look at a revamped Marc Spector, but it also begins to show signs of having multiple personalities akin to its titular character. As long as issue #4 is able to find some sort of balance between everything going on, the series will continue to engage old and new fans of Moon Knight alike. Read Full Review

    If you liked the first two issues, you won't be disappointed by this one in spite of the lack of actual Moon Knight action. If you were one of those shaking your head in dismay, though, this issue will not be changing your mind. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 6, 2011

    This series is delivering a lot of questions. The main ones are is Moon Knight crazy and who is the new Kingpin of LA? Bendis shows us some flashback sequences with Marc setting himself up in LA and it's great getting some more information on those around him. Mysteries are fun and this issue continues to set up the story. We do get some action scenes but there isn't as much as in past issues. Fans of Bullseye will either get a kick out of his appearance here or be slightly disappointed. Maleev's art firmly establishes the mood for Moon Knight's wacky world but I can't say I'm crazy about Snapdragon being the other baddie in this issue. How long will we have to wait for the reveal of the Kingpin and what will the payoff be like? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Danial Jul 9, 2011

    Moon Knight #3 falls short of Moon Knight's prior glory. The story itself is running along just fine, but Bendis' wordiness--which works fine in team titles--is really dragging it down. Not to mention the ever-pointless cosplay aspect and the cheap dig at Moon Knight's previous life. If Bendis could just tighten up his writing and get over this "a character has to have mental problems to be interesting" mindset, I feel that this title could still have potential. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jul 10, 2011

    It's hard to believe that a Bendis and Maleev comic is this bland, but "Moon Knight" #3 practically drowns in it, mostly because of its leading man. Marc Spector doesn't seem to have any character except a little bit of craziness and a stereotypical TV producer personality that's probably a sad little act. While many comics have managed to be great without a strong, compelling lead, this issue shows just how much of a problem that could be heading forward. Read Full Review
