    Moon Knight #16 is an excellent set-up issue, reaffirming the stakes of the run while giving more insight into the current antagonist's plans. It also expands the supernatural underworld of New York, establishing a new subset of vampires and linking to various plots of other Marvel books. The true hero of the issue is Cappuccios art and Rosenbergs colors, the two elevating the story through strong visuals and two opposed palettes that give distinct but similar aesthetics that speak to the cohesion of the two plotlines. This book is an excellent place for new fans to jump on, thanks to the excellent contextualizing MacKays script does. Its also rewarding for continued readers, deepening everything thats made the run so strong over the last 15 issues. Read Full Review

    Cappuccino delivers some beautiful art in the issue. The action is thrilling and wonderfully detailed and I love the level of tension that is exhibited visually from just a conversation.  Read Full Review

    Moon Knight #16 journeys to the heart of Chinatown to uncover a secret Cold War between rival vampire gangs and a closer look into Tutor's grand plan. The art is outstanding, the exposition (though lengthy) sets the stage and raises the stakes, and the last page will have consequences for several issues to come. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 1, 2022

    A very talky issue, the conversation is intercut with action sequences featuring Hunter's Moon battling, and losing, a fight against Grand Mal, Nemean, and some vampires which suggests the other Fist of Khonshu is killed (or at the very least paralyzed) by the villains leaving Moon Knight down a man heading into the fight with the Tutor.
