    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Dec 2, 2017

    Moon Knight is a brutal, unforgiving, truly terrifying, and unforgettable experience. Max Bemis, Jacen Burrows, Mat Lopes, Guillermo Ortego, and Cory Petit are an absolute dream team. Every way you slice it, this comic is one you cannot afford to miss. Read Full Review

    Moon Knight #189 follows up on the engaging and slow burn (haha! pun) of the previous issue with an action-heavy and brutal issue with a new villain and a surreal depiction of Marc Spectors current life. It was a great read, and I highly recommend it. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 30, 2017

    I am really liking how Bemis is dealing with Moon Knight's mental disorder for now. We had a 14-issue series that dealt with it in every issue, so I like that Bemis addresses it, but it is also not the sole focus of the book. I get that we can't completely ignore it, but I also like to see Moon Knight deal with other things besides that aspect of his character. It is nice to see him doing some superhero stuff and not letting the mental disorder completely define him. Hopefully, that trend continues throughout the series. The art in Moon Knight #189 continues to be fantastic and very unique. I am happy to say as a longtime fan of Moon Knight that I am really enjoying this new series. The story is taking some interesting turns and the art is fantastic. Read Full Review

    This issue goes a little overboard in terms of Khonshu's narration, but otherwise it showcases a confident, disturbing and darkly humorous take on the character. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Carlos Melendez Dec 3, 2017

    Not a bad issue by any stretch and certainly not devoid of merit and is not without entertainment value but that still doesn't change the fact that it is at it's core filler and nothing more. Still given the cliffhanger we're teased with at the end of the issue I am still eagerly awaiting and very excited to see where Bemis takes this series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Nov 30, 2017

    Bemis' writing is exactly what fans of his have come to expect. His voice for Khonshu works to frame the book and his alliterative, almost overly descriptive caption work is very on brand. But two issues in, we're still getting caught up with character and concept introductions and that's holding the book back for now. Read Full Review
