  1. Are you enjoying Moon Knight? I ordered the 5th issue because of the enticing description on the Diamond Preview, and, if you put in a good word for this series, I may buy the previous 4 issues on ebay.

    • I’d grade Moon Knight so far like this:
      Issue #1: 10/10
      Issue #2: 9/10
      Issue #3: 7/10

      The art has been fantastic but Issue #2 and #3 were rather quick reads consisting of very little dialogue. #2 pulled it off with a terrific concept throughout but #3 faltered. Each issue is self contained though so you won’t be missing any overall arc. I’d recommend tracking down Issue #1 and #2 for sure. I think it will rebound with the fourth issue, at least I hope. Regardless, Declan Shalvey is knocking it out of the park with the art each and every month.
