After reading it, I was relieved to see that the scene with Marlene and Frenchie was just a vision from his being beaten into a coma. I don't think Bendis will rewrite Moon Knight's entire history as a crazed hallucination. I think he's got some crazy stuff planned, but I doubt it involves disregarding the Moench run on the series, which is arguably the best one.
As for the rest of the issue, it wasn't bad. I like the use of Madam Masque (I'm an Iron Man fan too) and they seem to be building to a pretty epic finale. I was also glad to see that up against a villain like Count Nefaria, Moon Knight held his own. All I know is: there's only a few issues left, so I plan to stick it out and read this thing to the finish.
: Mixed feelings after...
: Moon Knight #10
: The opening page would have been nice if it
: wasnt identical to the cliffhanger page.
: The berserker vignette panels were TOO
: vague. Yeah, they explain what happened
: later and having readers use their
: imagination for violent scenes is usually an
: effective way - but this still felt TOO much
: onus on the readers.
: The 3pages of hallucination seemed just
: that. More of the same swiss cheese
: mindscape of Marc. REALLY hope everything
: hasnt been a Pam Ewingesque dream all along
: as this thread speculates. THAT WOULD BE
: Det.Hall had a good scene even if his force
: are bumblebutts to not notify the Avengers
: or have better security to stop a lone
: "IMAGINE HOW SHE FEELS" seemed
: like the most tasteless wisecrack in some
: time. Bad karma for Buck there.
: We see what happened to the Count and a
: surprising/cool intro of Masque into the
: storyline. [Need to be reminded how things
: ended with The Hood and where she went.]
: More psycho Marc hallucinating and cashing
: in on Wolverine images. Crazy redundant.
: Wow. Looks like Echo is really dead. Good to
: get meaningful change - not so much in a
: series slated for cancellation. Not sure why
: Masque went to the morgue - it seems just
: for clues in which case her methods seemed
: TOO extreme. Bad Ass even. If it turns out
: she takes the body then am skeptical this is
: Echo's meaningful final fate.
: Snapdragon is becoming a dark horse good
: character. Liked her interrogation scene.
: See Buck, there's that bad karma. If
: Editorial did not give the okay to kill an
: Avenger then this minor player is doomed -
: especially if Masque was the sniper. He is a
: bumblebutt too for the poor security of
: holding onto Ultron. The drama of this last
: scene fizzles with the
: underwhelming/uninspiring last panel of Marc
: picking off lint from his tshirt.
