Shalvey’s art is brilliant, and Ellis knows it, as it seems he perfectly plotted this issue to allow the art to shine when Moon Knight started dreaming. Like the one part stories, doesn’t happen to often with Marvel or DC, much less done well like this

This was a cool series. Loved Bendis’ unique take on Marc and the side characters like Buck and Maya shined. LA instead of somewhere like New York was cool too. Alex Maleev’s art is so gritty and fits perfectly. Too bad Age of Ultron sucked. It’s been so long since I read it that I can’t remember if Nefaria’s ultimate goal was ever revealed or not
