Not everyone is thrilled that Marc Spector is using his alter ego Moon Knight as fodder for a television show, especially Marc's ex Marlene!

    The book isn't entirely flawless. The pacing in this issue is a bit slow and a few of the scenes redundant, though at least the ending suggests there won't be a long wait until the next big showdown. And there are always continuity quibbles to be had, whether it's the presence of functioning vibranium in the story or the unorthodox depiction of Moon Knight's mental disorder. But quibbles they remain. Moon Knight is a welcome dose of classic Bendis and Maleev, and one that is successfully carving its own little place in Marvel's catalog. Read Full Review

    Moon Knight and Echo's dialogue is the highlight of the issue, but there are some other moments worth mention including Marc Spector's surreal conversation with his assistant why the werewolves in his TV-show can't look more real, and Detective Hall's immediate reluctance to help a vigilante. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    Everything about "Moon Knight" #8 seems like an improvement over the previous seven issues. The level of ease and comfort is noticeably higher, as is the strong sense of direction. It's not just Maleev that looks like he's hitting his stride on this title, it's Bendis as well. There's always a period of getting to know characters and becoming comfortable with them and their world, and it seems like Bendis and Maleev have passed that point. This is a tight, entertaining issue, possibly the best of the series to date. Read Full Review
