    With some strong character dynamics, memorable fight scenes, and an unexpected plot twist at the end this issue cements Bendis and Maleev's run as one of the more shining points in Moon Knight's career. The question now is whether that run is already drawing to a close, or if the creators plan to stick around for more than one year. Read Full Review

    Aside for one panel with Echo where things get real very quickly (and which better be a tease!), I thoroughly enjoyed myself from cover to cover. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Bendis is cranking up the crazy level with Moon Knight and it's just in time as he faces off against the insanely powerful Count Nefaria. The entire series has been building up to this battle as now the cover to the first issue perfectly makes sense. Moon Knight's relationship with Echo continues to thrive and where the two will go after this is strongly alluded to. Moon Knight is a fighting machine and Maleev's art sets the tone and vibe for the battle. There is the feeling of isolation during the fight as you don't see any bystanders around. Despite this, the action heats up and the unexpected ending could change the direction of the series in a big way. I may have minor issues with the super-crazy Moon Knight but Bendis and Maleev know how to deliver a whopping issue. Read Full Review
