About this deal

Gain an expansive catalog of 30,000+ comics spanning Marvel Comics history, plus access your entire digital library including comics redeemed from print. I just loved Jed Mackay’s recent job on Marvel’s Black Cat, so this debut on Moon Knight is not surprisingly at all a real solid and good one, taking the good parts from wonderful previous run by Warren Ellis who relaunched the character a few years ago, introducing his new Mr Knight’s identity and much more, and then taking his own path with strong classic vibes, homaging good old times when Marc Spector used to battle every sort of criminal mastermind and supernatural creature instead of struggling between his multiple personalities.

Freed of his twisted mental programming by Leonard Hawley, the no-nonsense enforcer and former Hydra agent Soldier became another fixture within the Midnight Mission, going as far as to pose as Mister Knight when the mission was threatened. while another Fist of Khonshu appears (“Hunter’s Moon” which sounds like a cheap aftershave) only for Moon Knight to defeat him with a baseball bat to the head. Alessandro Cappuccio’s art was pretty good too, but with another more horror-oriented artist from the Fist of Konshu’s past like Sienkiewicz, Finch or Burrows, this could have been a five stars review from me. Alessandro Cappuccio’s art isn’t bad, though it’s not as striking as Steve McNiven’s covers unfortunately, and I suppose the stories are varied enough to not make for a relentlessly tedious read. Mackay is fast becoming a name for me to watch at Marvel - his Moon Knight already looks set to stand next to his Black Cat as one of my favourite Marvel titles in recent years.So the issue starts with MK on a mission to save people at night and he meets Reese and all there and the drama there as another fist of Khonshu aka the Hunters moon is here and he fights MK and it's it's a fun fight and all. The Moon Knight stalks the rooftops and alleys marked with his crescent moon tag, bringing violence to any who would harm his people.

Accompanied by Tigra and the undead Fists of Khonshu, Moon Knight was victorious with the Midnight Mission and neighborhood safe.Reese then became the Midnight Mission receptionist and Moon Knight's right hand, the only job she could keep due to her imposed lifestyle change. Daredevil has Hell's Kitchen, Luke Cage has Harlem, but Moon Knight doesn't define his community by traditional neighborhood lines.

The Moon Knight stalks the rooftops and alleys marked with his crescent moon tag, bringing violence to any who would harm his flock. It's not hyper-violent like Huston, or a trippy space war being fought in the mindscape like Lemire.I don't know why this took me so long to start this comic, i loved the first volume and the characters in it so much: Reese, dr. After deciding to reject the influence of Khonshu, the Ancient Egyptian God of Vengeance and source of his powers, Moon Knight decided to help travelers of the night in his own way. This isn't an Immortal Hulk-esque system of alters so much as a group of people working towards a common goal that all happen to be living in the same body, and the subtle changes when the dominant personality shifts are wonderful to behold. In this first volume of this well-hyped series Moon Knight's therapy sessions are interspersed with the work of his Midnight Mission protecting his night-time neighbourhood from the likes of vampires and supervillains.
