    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Sep 3, 2014

    Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood are continuing the adventures of Moon Knight admirably. Moon Knight has long been an intriguing character that sometimes lacked the proper guidance with the right creative team. Fans can rejoice as the series gives us what weve grown to expect. We have another self-contained story but there is an interesting twist and tie to whats happened before. Smallwoods art along with Jordie Bellaires colors look great and you cant help but want more. Moon Knight is clearly in safe hands. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli Sep 3, 2014

    Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood's Moon Knight is a strong continuation of the Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey incarnation, one which adds their own unique characteristics, both aesthetically and thematically. It's delightful, refreshing, and just plain cool. I think that Wood may have finally found his home in the Marvel Universe, applying his outsider ethos and indie voice to a property with mainstream appeal and rich potential. Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey would have been a tough act for anyone to follow, but Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood have done it with grace and style. Read Full Review

    If I had one gripe about this issue, it would be Woods characterization of Spector. Perhaps Im just spoiled by Ellis sharp and pithy take on the character, but Woods Spector is just a bit too wordy for me. Perhaps Ill come around in time, but for now this is indeed a strong offering from this team. I had my reservations, but Moon Knight is still a great book, and one of my favorites on the shelf.

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Sep 8, 2014

    If you were nervous about a new creative team taking over the reins of this title, then rest assured that it seems to be in very capable hands. It's more of what came before and that's a good thing. Wood, Smallwood and Bellaire didn't try to re-invent Moon Knight yet again, or the storytelling process that made this new series a hit in the first place. They embraced what came before and worked within the framework and style that had been laid out for them. If you were a fan of the first six issues you should be happy to see that same theme continued here, and if you have yet to pick this book up, then jump on board with this new creative team and give it a try.

    All that means is that Moon Knight is under new management. Wood and Smallwood are not attempting to imitate Ellis and Shalvey, and that is a good thing. They are every bit as talented as the creators that worked on the book previously. Moon Knight #7 keeps what was working and uses it to show off the creative talents of everyone now involved. Moon Knight is in excellent hands and I am on board for wherever they take the story next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Big Phil Sep 7, 2014

    Definitely give this one a try if you liked the first six. I'm a little worried that the orders will drop more than they should because people write this one off early. This was a quality issue by Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood and I'm excited to see where theytake the story. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Thomas Crawford Sep 5, 2014

    This is a strong start for Moon Knight's new creative team. Wood, et al. sink their hooks in deep and don't let go. With a gripping story, dynamic art, and a clear creative vision, Moon Knight has a very bright future ahead of it. Read Full Review

    Moon Knight may have a mostly different creative team, but this new chapter doesn't offer a drastic shift in tone or style from the previous six issues. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - superiorchris Sep 8, 2014

    Overall, the new creative team is a welcoming change. The issue was action packed and filled with usual Moon Knight antics. Wood definitely has the voice down for the character but I am looking forward to see what new things he can bring to the series. Smallwood and Bellaire on art both bring a new and familiar feel to the book that is worth keeping the series on the pull list. Unfortunately I struggled a bit with the story as little was given but I am hoping the next issue has more answers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 4, 2014

    What appears to be a simple, straightforward adventure with some fists thrown and fancy technology flying around is actually an enjoyable, nearly definitive introduction to Moon Knight. Wood has a solid handle on the action that is necessary to keep this series rolling and he shows he can guide the character through a standard-issue adventure, so from here he just needs to dig a little deeper into the days and times, trials and tribulations of Moon Knight. Thankfully, he has a bedrock-solid trio of comic book masters to collaborate with, putting "Moon Knight" #7 in the same stratosphere as the work currently being done on "Daredevil." Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Sep 5, 2014

    Brain Wood and Greg Smallwood succeed in keeping Moon Knight one of the better Marvel titles on the rack. There is little difference in the writing and art, and an average reader would be unable to tell the difference. It's a success all around and regular readers of the book shouldn't be disappointed.

    This could be the start of another great arc, but needs Wood to let Smallwood do more of the heavy lifting to achieve a better read. Read Full Review

    Warren Ellis is out and Brian Wood is in! I loved Ellis' bare bones approach to Moon Knight, and I'm happy to say that Wood doesn't try and reinvent the wheel. This is the same Moon Knight, with the same look, roughly the same art and definitely the same style. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Roderick Ruth Sep 3, 2014

    Moon Knight #7 marks the second season of the All-New Marvel NOW! series, and is noticably riding on the coat tails that was left by it's former creative team. While it has noticably big shoes to fill, I would be hard-pressed to find anyone that could aptly step up to the challenge. With that being said, as a huge fan of the previous run, this has much more to go in order to genuinely capture that excitement I previously had for the series and much more to improve upon before one can say that this is a safe bet.
