After literally not being able to ginish the last issue because of how bad it was, this is definitely a step up. Bemis started his run on fire and it continued the great moon knight quality we've been getting for a while. The issue where Bemis gave his secret origin story of Marc is where this series took a downward spiral. Moon knight is a character with mental health issues but thats not all he more
