A Great Start--Moon Knight #1
I have been eagerly looking forward to this series since it was announced, building up my expectations to a level that could not possibly be achieved. Therefore, before reading this comic I made sure to tell myself to just expect something good. Needless to say, this comic did definitely deliver on a fun time.
Marc Spector has sold his story about how he became Moon Knight to television and is out living in Los Angeles, when some of his Avenger friends come to him and ask him to figure out which villains are starting to set up shop on the West Coast. What follows is some good dialogue between mafia toughs, a well-illustrated fight scene, and a mysterious kingpin we don't see causing trouble. Yeah, nothing too amazing, basically just a fun action comic that could star any hero...until that awesome last page reveal that could only work with someone like Moon Knight. Bendis, I knew you would bring some of that "Daredevil" magic to this comic.
4 out of 5 stars.
