    Moon Knight #12 is what happens when a book's creators are all working at the top of their game in a cohesive manner. Artists Greg Smallwood and Jordie Bellaire are fantastic visual storytellers, and writer Jeff Lemire's script presents many opportunities to show off their talents. At the same time, the narrative here continues to build upon previous chapters, and it's a pleasant surprise to see Spector's alternate personalities prove an aid to him in his time of need rather than a continued hindrance.

    This book is, without a doubt, my favorite book I'm reading from any publisher at the moment. I can't get enough of it. Each month while I'm waiting for the next issue to come out, I keep rereading the rest of the run and trying to predict what's coming next. Any fan of good storytelling that doesn't mind a slow burn will enjoy this book. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. Read Full Review

    To be frank, Jeff Lemire has a slow-paced writing style, which can be irritating yet rewarding. In the case of Moon Knight #12, it's rewarding. His stories are at their best when elements and characters from past issues return, but to do things like that, he has to pace the issues just right. Usually, he does a great job, but there can be times when the build seems redundant and goes on FOREVER. Fortunately, Lemire was on top of things this month, bringing back Marc's alternate personalities for a rescue and even sneaking in an appearance from Bushman. Hopefully, with Bushman's addition to the series, the next two parts of the "Death and Birth" story-arc will feature a clash between rivals in both the past and present, setting Marc up for his inevitable showdown with Khonshu.
