    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel May 3, 2023

    Moon Knight #23 is an example of the perfect crossover story, delivering an organic reason for the guest character to appear, and using it to progress the story while delivering a new spectacle. MacKays voice for this version of Venom feels in line with the character and tone of Moon Knight, and his narrative direction ensures the issue feels like a natural progression of the series. Not only does Venoms appearance progress the larger story, but it also allows Cappuccio to illustrate a strong, extended fight sequence and create a contrasting figure to Moon Knight. These depictions are bolstered thanks to Rosenbergs colors, which mold and adapt to the new addition and make it feel like a fun experiment. Fans of Venom will want to check out this issue, the story serving as a good gateway into the run as it heads to its landmark issue and upcoming spinoff series. Read Full Review

    I didn't have a Moon Knight and Venom team-up on my bingo card this year, but after what writer Jed MacKay, artist Alessandro Cappuccio, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, and letterer Cory Petit accomplished here, I'd sign up for more in a heartbeat. Read Full Review

    I wouldn't mind seeing Venom stick around for a little while longer, but a strong single-issue story is something I'll always be happy to receive. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 7, 2023

    Moon Knight #2 teams up the titular hero with Venom to stop a gang of mercenaries and to hunt down the audio-hypnotist causing havoc. The pacing and action are fun, and the art is stellar, but the story's lack of urgency and motivation makes this issue forgettable. Read Full Review
