    Again if this is the road to the end of Moon Knight, we are speeding down there fast. I don't want this comic to end. I don't want another reboot, I just want to stay on this ride forever. Read Full Review

    While this issue isn't the best in the series (that title belongs to theGarth Ennis penned issue #5), it is still a brilliant comic that requires no knowledge of previous issues to enjoy it. Treat yourself toMoon Knight #17. It's agood read with some excellent artwork. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Russ Whiting Jul 16, 2015

    Bunn's most interesting narrative on the title to date; combined with last issue, he's really starting to hit his stride with the character. Moon Knight #17 doesn't require too much prior knowledge of Moon Knight beforehand, so it serves as a good jumping on point. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Marvel has yet to reveal the plans for Moon Knight post "Secret Wars", if any, but here's hoping this series doesn't go away, as it has set an excellent example for comics. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jul 16, 2015

    The execution of the story, as has been the case in most chapters of this volume, is almost entirely on the shoulders of the art team. Ron Ackins delivers some impactful action scenes in this book, and the continuing motif of the smiles works well. Unfortunately, the colors just haven't been the same since Jordie Bellaire left and this is perhaps the least distinctive use of color since she left. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Jul 19, 2015

    Moon Knight #17 is at best a well-intentioned misfire. Theres still enough of the great series in it to be enjoyed but its not the same kind of dynamite storytelling that marked the previous issues. Overall the central takeaway from it is that Moon Knight was better served as an exploration of mood and atmosphere more than anything else; trying to tell stories that rose or fell on their otherworldly genre-bending artifice rather than deeper meaning or characterization. Not a horrible issue, but not one to judge the entire series on either. Read Full Review
