Unlike Batman, he isn't perfect, sometimes he loses a fight & sometimes the bad guy gets the upper hand. I thought that made him more interesting & the stories better. He has way too many secret identities but that's part of his journey to define himself. He fights all sorts of random villains: terrorists, mercenaries, street criminals & a few costumed guys. I liked his first moon-copter better than the 2nd one.

You really got your money's worth back then, individual issues were longe

The first 30 issues of Moon Knight were among the best that was published in comics. The stories by Doug Moench were generally not groundbreaking but offered solid action-adventure/pulp entertainment, with the occasional gem (such as "Hit It," which is included in this collection). What raised the series far beyond the norm was the incredible art by Bill Sienkiewicz, which was far ahead of its time.

As with all of Marvel's Essential collections, the 20 comics collected in this volume are in black

Unfortunately I came in on Volume 2 and not Volume 1, but it was an interesting read nonetheless-Moon Knight goes back and forth from more supernatural/super powered threats and things like terrorists, but I enjoyed how he never seems to have a real handle on the superhero game, unlike, say, someone like Batman, who ALWAYS at least thinks he knows what he's doing. The multiple identity thing is also and interesting feature. I can't say I loved the character or the books, which suffer from some ...more

Perhaps the only Bronze Age Marvel Essentials book to suffer from lack of color. The draw of Moon Knight (this period) was definitely Bill Sienkiewicz's art. Moon Knight's bottom of the totem pole status and relatively mature readership gave its art department a lot of room to experiment. It is disheartening to see Sienkiewicz's beautiful water colors and oils rendered as black and white line drawings. What we're left with is a Bronze Age Batman deconstruction that doesn't quite leave the reader ...more
