"Welcome to the Midnight Mission. My name is Doctor Moon. How can I help?" Moon Knight may be indisposed in the wake of the DEVIL'S REIGN, but the mission continues.

    Moon Knight #8 despite being a spotlight on someone other than Moon Knightstill continues the great story building since issue one. It really is a great done-in-one issue that you dont have to have read the previous 7 issues to follow. Especially if you want to read a story with a character that is still new and a little back story that you need to know before going in. Also, I want to call out my favorite line in the issue that actually made me chuckle: MY GOD HAS NO ANGELS. ONLY FISTS Read Full Review

    Giving Hunter Moon an issue to develop while Moon Knights occupied with one of the monthly Marvel events, was a nice treat. Giving MacKay the chance to scrape below what weve seen, and make him a more well rounded and complex character. It also adds potential for future conflict with the two fists of Khonshu, and the difference in how they serve him as his avatars on the earthly realm. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Feb 9, 2022

    Moon Knight #8 takes a novel approach to event tie-ins by not connecting to the event and keeping the hero out of his own title. Dishonest marketing aside, the old/new villains is now a high concept reboot that takes more than a little brainpower to figure out, and the art is excellent. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 16, 2022

    Moon Knight #8 is a weird issue, but one that focuses on the positive relationship between Khonshu and this Fist. This is certainly a contrast to Moon Knight's relationship to his god. Hunter's Moon summons his god, one of the oldest stories, to battle one of the newest (who is apparently a godling?). The art is the real highlight here, providing some fun moments even if the story is a bit hit-and-miss and ends without offering any resolution. Read Full Review
