If you thought The Bottom was bad wait till you read this overlong piece of nonsense.

Once again it features all the problems of the first Moon Knight story arc plus a couple more. Dialogue is once again mindless drivel littered with the F-word. Marc Spector is still a jerk and now he's crazy apparently. I wish Huston would make it clear whether or not Spector is crazy because it really began to irk me in the issues of this arc. Once again an apparition of Bushman (one of the worst names for a vi...more

Well this is the first moonknight comic ive ever read, honestly i didnt think highly of it. The art was good but there wasnt much of a story to it, mainly your classic villain wanting revenge kind of a story. Some other marvel characters show up in a few parts, moonknight doesnt actually fight much crime, its mainly revolving around him and his villain. (i forgot the name of the villain) Ill admit, i thought it would be better. In a nutshell, moonknight and the villain hes facing fight and duke...more
I really like the character of Moon Knight and I love Charlie Huston's novels. But the two of them just don't go together. I get the sense that Huston just doesn't understand comics and how they work and how to write them. And his expletive-filled dialogue just looks funny with "####" filling in for the four-letter words. That said, this volume was at least a step up from the first one. And the art by David Finch is pretty good--lots of intricate detail, though it looks better in the first coupl...more

Meh. This second collection just kinda falls apart. The story is disjointed (yes, I know the author did that on purpose-- it just doesn't work very well). The first collection was cohesive and the theme of rebirth worked. We were given enough history to follow along. "Midnight Sun" (which is a play on words re: the bad guy) just feels jumbled. The author makes the assumption that the reader has been following the life of this character (who made his first appearance in the '70s) and doesn't give...more

I admit to Moon Knight being my favorite B-List hero, so I enjoyed this. The story line is unique and not always something you see from Marvel. So it was a good fun read. Recommend it, especially if you've been reading Marvel Civil War.
Surprisingly compelling.
second verse, same as the first...but with new/old characters. what i mean is new characters for the series, old characters for comic elite. spiderman, the punisher, captain america, and other heroes join moon knight in this volume. it makes things a little more interesting as they are involved. i still think that huston is being held back by marvel...he doesn't seem himself because of their influence...but that may just be me. i would love to see him create his own comic, one not based on old m...more
"Why don't you and Stark get a room and leave the rest of us out of it?"
When I'm reading this, I get a strong "Hellraiser" hit off the writing. The guy is totally tormented by inner demons who are trying to rip him apart. The way he strains against the inevitable pull of the dark, and swings wildly between violence and restraint, is a lot like whiplash. Even the final story in Huston's arc is still like a tug of war, even as it's turning a page towards a new chapter of Marc Spector.

Duane's annual was suitably chilling.
Sometimes you want Grim and Gritty. The art is amazing. New villain Midnight giving Moon Knight trouble, all the while guest starring Spidey, Punisher, CapA. Tony Stark. In a 'Casualties of War' Tie-in.
Last issue deals with a S.H.I.E.L.D psych test for Moon Knight. In a 'Initiative' Tie-in. Bad art. Great writing. Great issue overall.
An overall disappointing collection of the latest Moon Knight iteration. It was too violent and the writing was choppy. The only redeeming quality was the artwork of the earlier issues.
Jeff Raymond
So it's sort of a cosmic Batman? Without the hero being very redeeming (save the annual entry at the end)? I feel as if I've given this enough of a shot for the time being.
The Book Geek
Potty mouthed Batman like vigilante. Pretty good read. I liked the faceless ghost sidekick. The faux classic dot look in the last chapter was also nice.
I only give this one 3 stars for the last two stories in it. The main storyline was a bit boring.
Harrison Rip
Smart but a bit confusing if you haven't been following the reboot
Far too much flesh rotting off of cyborg faces.
