Years ago, Moon Knight lost his mind and killed a man, cut off his face and brayed at the moon. That man was his nemesis: Raoul Bushman. Now Bushman is back and looking for payback. He’s laid a trap for Moon Knight, emptying Ravenscar Asylum and the lunatics are running wild down Broadway. For Moon Knight to defeat them – and Bushman – he’ll need the full arsenal of his wits and weaponry. Because nothing can prepare him for the madness of Herman the German and the Great Wall.

    What Hurwitz and Opena have created here has all the makings of a great superhero book, but one with great horror elements as well. Hurwitz has once again upped the ante for this series and he's building a lot of momentum as Moon Knight continues to make his way to the forefront of the Marvel Universe. If you arent reading this book yet, you're making a big mistake. Moon Knight is indeed back with a vengeance, and so is his archenemy! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Joe Lopez Nov 12, 2009

    Despite distracting similarities to DC's own nighttime avenger, Hurwitz and Opena make Vengeance of the Moon Knight #3 work thanks to this month's spotlight on wonderfully wicked baddie Bushman. A particularly affective last page left me wanting to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    But if you're willing to do a bit of Google legwork (or just happen to be one of the two dozen diehard Moon Knight fans out there), Vengeance offers a really great horror story in its best moments. Opea's dark, creepy artwork and Hurwitz's solid crafting of the antagonistic forces result in the first issue of a Moon Knight book that I've actually enjoyed in quite some time. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Robert Tacopina Nov 14, 2009

    Artistically this book excels under the steady guidance of Jerome Opena who uses his pencils to give the world a gritty edge. Much like Texeira and Saltares before him Mr. Opena seems like a perfect fit for this particular hero. Paul Mounts does a fantastic job of coloring the pencil work in equal fashion. All the pieces finally seem to have fallen into place and I think if the team just stays the course while continuing to add new elements than maybe Moon Knight may finally be able to kick that darn ball.
