    I absolutely love this series. Jeff Lemire is weaving an amazing story with Moon Knight. Even though I miss Greg Smallwood's art, the story more than makes up for it. Sure, I have no clue what exactly is going on, but I can't wait to find out. Read Full Review

    With all the talent involved in this book it isn't a surprise that it's so good, but it's tantalizing to think of the greatness that hopefully lies ahead. Read Full Review

    If you're not caught up with Moon Knight yet, stop reading this, turn your computer off, run to your local comic book store and purchase all six issues immediately. That's an order. Read Full Review

    If you haven’t picked this series up I highly recommend you go grab all the back issues and get caught up. This is one of the most interesting and well written stories I have read in a long time. Such a new and refreshing take on a superhero book it is definitely a must read. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, Moon Knight #6 is a solid entry that furthers the story of a psychologically broken protagonist. While it doesn't quite invite new readers in the way that one might hope a new story arc would, writer Jeff Lemire, and the talented artists still deliver a story that continues to find new ways to show a hero lost in his own mind. Moon Knight might have escaped the confines of his mental hospital, but it appears his journey is only going to get more mind-bending from here. Read Full Review

    All in all, the series has not failed to keep interest. Readers are constantly challenged to think of how each part of the story intertwines and to look for the bigger picture. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 8, 2016

    Although the unique structure of the book has limited our chance to see our hero in full costume (this issue does give us “actor” Marc Spector dressed on the movie set, but not connected to either the Lockley or Grant), Moon Knight continues to offer one of Marvel's more unique offerings. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Sep 7, 2016

    Moon Knight is a weird book, but it's a wonderfully nice break from the current Civil War II storyline happening throughout the majority of Marvel's monthly books. It's different. It tells its own story without being roped into whatever else is going on. It's has a unique voice as a comic that tells a story in ways we've never seen before at Marvel. It's not perfect, but it's one of the coolest series of 2016, right up there with Tom King's Vision. Lemire and companies take on Marc Spector isn't traditional, but don't let that scare you away from this fantastic book. Read Full Review
