•  Marc Spector is in an asylum full of faces: haughty doctor, hostile orderlies, vacant-eyed patients. Or maybe those faces are actually just masks...
•  If some of those masks hide friends, others may hide enemies, or worse...GODS and MONSTERS.
•  The moon is out, the mask is on: it's time to escape-will Marc find a city full of sand, or something truly horrifying?
Rated T+

    I'm oozing with joy and excitement over this current Moon Knight series. I feel a slight tremble inside when I reach the end and am filled with the anticipation of the next issue. I need my Moon Knight fix and Lemire, Smallwood, and Bellaire are doing a phenomenal job. Two issues in, I am completely sold on this volume. It's going to be another epic run. It's a great time to be a Moon Knight fan. This book is so dang good. I need and want more. Read Full Review

    Moon Knight #2 moves our tale forward in a bold and invigorating fashion. Not only does it continue to explore what is real and what is not real, but it yet again gives us a fascinating look into Marc Spector's psyche, with the story and character developments bound to draw in fans, new and old.

    Moon Knight #2 is another great entry from Jeff Lemire and Greg Smallwood. While only on issue two, it is becoming one of the best Moon Knight series in a long time. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed May 9, 2016

    Moon Knight #2 is a stunning piece of work that plays well into the titular hero's muddied history. While Marc's sanity has been played with throughout the character's history, it's never been brought to the forefront in such fashion as it is here. Lemire's script allows for Marc and his supporting cast to come through as characters, while the artwork by Greg Smallwood and Jordie Bellaire creates the mystery of Marc's circumstances. In some ways, Moon Knight #2 feels reminiscent of a story readers have read before, but the craftsmanship and presentation of the issue make it a haunting read. Read Full Review

    The rest of the series was good, especially the last page, but me being me, I'm sitting there like, nah, man. Don't you try and win me back with that good ass looking art and Easter egg reveal. You know what you did. Greg Smallwood does an excellent job with the characters be they human, deity, or otherwordly environment. I'll probably keep reviewing Moon Knight in the grand scheme of things, but I'm really feeling some type of way about it. With this reveal from Khonshu, my excitement has taken a hit.

    The art is great, and the ideas presented in this second issue are even more interesting and exciting than what came in an already good first issue. Color us intrigued. Read Full Review

    Is Marc Spector crazy? Absolutely. Is he a mental patient or a prisoner? That's the real question, and it's what makes issue #2 so enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 10, 2016

    A mercenary turned champion of an Egyptian god, Moon Knight's origins have always been a bit odd. Writer Jeff Lemire continues to play with the concepts of Marc's fragile mental state as well as an extra-terrestrial being taking advantage of it for its own ends with interesting results. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Richard Morris May 9, 2016

    Either way, Moon Knight #2 is nothing short of a successful addition to the story, even without offering any definitive answers. The reader sees Marcs story and situation furthered in a pleasing way. Artist Greg Smallwood guides the readers eyes and takes enough care tovaryhis style for different situations. Best of all, Marc appears to be on the rise, ready to suit up as the protector of nighttime travelers, the one and only Moon Knight. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz May 8, 2016

    Moon Knight is a great example of how Marvel can still have great offbeat stories about non-conventional super heroes. So, if you are not on the Moon Knight train, there is still time to get on board because the train has not fully left the station yet. This run is looking to be epic and one of the best Moon Knight runs of recent times thanks to the awesome creative team behind this book. Read Full Review
