Story wise I’m enjoying this:

Great first issue. I love the idea of Tony writing his autobiography. The first couple of pages is giving you a rundown of everything you need to know about Tony’s past. This narrative device makes you feel the weight of Tony’s history. He’s been through a ton of shit over his 60 years that isn’t acknowledged enough. Also using the CliffNotes style where he’s editing, deleting and re-wor more

It annoys me to no end that Danny was stripped off his powers and reduced to “the guy from the subway” just to make way for a new “Asian Iron Fist”.

A new arc begins as Moon Knight goes to war with the vampires of the Structure, but he finds it a battle on two fronts - one on the midnight streets, and the other within his own mind!

Thus the finale to the long drawn out Korvac arc.

I have to say, I like that Tony and Korvac didn’t have a massive brawl and he was able to defeat him with words, to the point Korvac killed himself. That’s good subversion.

Really like the voices for Tony and Cap, especially for Cap, much better than what Cantwell or Coates did with him recently. I could do with less Veronica Eden, who I still have a hard time caring about. And yes, enough with the self-hate from Tony, if only Cantwell would get the message.
