Well, that was... interesting. Interesting in that it helps show the pleasantly stylistic that will be this book - not as literary praise of the content. It wasn't a bad adventure but it wasn't fulfilling either.
The sideways cover grabbed my attention - 'til closer examination had it make less sense. The MOON KNIGHT banner on it was fine for the premiere but it steals too much art space as a regular thing and the strip should be thinner. And the cresent of the moon is obvious but in relation to the skyline should not be eclipsed that way - unless it was MK's glider of which it didn't look like.
The prologue setup went on too, too long. Clever but, let's 6 victims, would've moved things along in 2/3 the time and pagespace. Heck, even less victims would have given us more meaningful Moon Knight seeing how this is only his 2nd issue to hook readers.
The fight was awesome and arguably saved the issue. The choreography was fast and furious with lots of neat POV imagery. Very little content though. And such an instant blabbering confession from a throwaway assassin and then a throwaway nobody character taking care of the problem did not do justice for Moon Knight as this series' superhero star.
MK's moon discs slice thru metal handguns. Not much else to say about this ish.
I miss Dad and Dan.
