REVIEW: One-Two Punch in Moon Knight #3
In Moon Knight #3 by Jed MacKay, Alessandro Cappuccio, Rachelle Rosenberg, and Cory Petit, with a main cover by Steve McNiven and Frank D’Armata, we see the foil for Moon Knight (the very same one who was established back in the very first issue) go mano-a-mano with Marc Spector… and the showdown is well worth the wait!
Marvel’s Moon Knight #3 pulls out all the stops to deliver a story that builds on the two issues that have come before. Not only do we get payoff for the character development that has been done so far (for everyone: Moon Knight himself and his associates, especially Reese the brand-new vampire), but we also get to see the various storylines that have been laid begin to pick up.
This means development for Moon Knight’s mission, where he is attempting to build a sort of religion, as well as with his hitherto unknown arch-nemesis, Dr. Badr, and the conclusion to the conflict is not at all what I was expecting, but it makes me even more excited to read the next issue!
In addition to all this, there is a scene that hints that we’ll be seeing more of his relationship with his therapist (although she only appears briefly in this issue).
I also have to shout-out the art!
The battles between Dr. Badr and Moon Knight are very cool to look at, with both of the spectral costumes well-rendered and interesting throughout the issue.
