    As a big Moon Knight fan, I've been waiting for the opening issue of this series for a long time. This is Moon Knight being elevated to the level where he should have always been. It takes the brilliance of Huston and Benson's run and incorporates it into creating a confident and stronger Moon Knight. This issue is a must read, a must bag and board, not only for Moon Knight fans, but for those who want to see the beginning of the next chapter in Norman Osborn's reign as the great protector. Could you imagine if Steve Rogers commands a team of heroes to take down Osborn with this reborn Moon Knight in his ranks alongside Bucky-Cap? Osborn wouldn't stand a chance. Read Full Review

    This first issue also contains a reprint of Moon Knight #1 from 1980. The story, titled The Macabre Moon Knight, by Doug Moench and artist Bill Sienkiewicz, tells the origin of The Moon Knight, Marc Spectors many alter egos, and his battle with his arch-nemesis, The Bushman. Its an interesting reprint of an old tale that will help new readers understand some of the history behind the character. Read Full Review

    So, how did I feel about the first issue of Vengeance of the Moon Knight? Surprisingly good; I picked it up to get a nice cover and was surprised to get a solid beginning to an intriguing story. Good art, good writing, and just enough suspense to make me curious about the future. The whole multiple personality thing still throws me a little, but I can overlook that, the story grabbed me that much. If you have not had the time to pick this title up, grab a copy, it'll surprise you. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    To be honest, after reading this I'm still not convinced there's any need for a Moon Knight title. Given the utter lack of interest there's been in the character over the last 30 issues of this series' predecessor, I'll be surprised if a relaunch makes any difference in the long term. If anything, repositioning Moon Knight as a more generic superhero seems to do away with the one thing that made him stand out. It's not a badly executed read, but it can't get over the question of why it exists in the first place. Read Full Review

    The art is worthy of a look-see alone, but wait for issue #2 to see where the story is heading. Read Full Review
