First off, let me say that Jacen Burrows is supplying amazing artwork and should only receive praise for how great a job he is doing illustrating the current, "Moon Knight," comic. His drawing is as crisp, clear, and high-quality as ever. In other words, Bemis basically gets the full blame for this comic really being mediocre. It started-out pretty strong, with the debut issue #188 (yeah, Marvel's stupid Legacy renumbering is a pain), but has gone downhill from there. The comic seemed like it might be clever and moody, but then it just started doing weird little jokes, confusing plot-points, and otherwise just feels...off. When I see Spector's arch-nemesis of Bushman I expect to be scared, not find him like comic-relief. The random introduction of Spector having a child with his longtime flame Marlene that he doesn't know about because it was his Jake Lockely side is just a weird plot twist as well that doesn't jell with how the concept of Spector, "Being," different people usually goes. It just all feels like a bad first draft of a, "Moon Knight," comic with some good bits but a whole lot of terrible stuff too.
