Moon Knight 008
Another terrible cover but the inside story was much better than last month's restart. So many story seeds planted throughout this most mundane of hostage rescues. What salvaged the heroics somewhat was the creative panelling of the news crisis covered live - with text script next to 4 types of camera angles: public cellphone, news digicam, underwhelming suicide kidnapper's recorder and Scarab Drone sensors. Why MK was bragging about his drones, who knows, as it was clear rip off of SpOck's spider-bots.
This news-report style of story telling was alright in an all-new, all-different vain. However, this method was also staggered pacing and does not lend itself well to the flow of typical comic book action which, if oft-used, could jeopardize receptiveness and sales. This one-time all-issue camera POV was fine -but also enough- and the final 2 pages of classic comicbook layout was welcome relief.
The intriguing story seeds include MK's methods/resources of crimebusting now, his flippant misuse of secret identity or costume standard, his developing working relation with Flint, his changing public image, his pending psychiatric evaluation, and his last page reunion with that freaky Khonshu bird-man avatar/vision from the previous volume.
Overall: it could be much better but it was much better than last issue.
