3.0 out of 5 stars A new attitude 12 Aug 2010
This book finds Moon Knight trying to become a proper hero. It'll be interesting to see how long it will last (I'm hoping not too long). There are some really good fight scenes and the art suits the storytelling. It's a good set up for the new series. Hopefully he will get new and interesting villains to take on or else it could go stale very quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Strong Start but Ultimately a Let Down 22 Dec 2013
By Sylvester Krapa - Published on
I was fully on board with Hurwitz' new portrayal of the Moon Knight and I even enjoyed it for the first issue or so. I liked the idea of Moon Knight striving to be more traditional hero without all the brutality. I didn't even mind the idea of Moon Knight being more gadget oriented because the character has had many different interpretations at this point that it didn't matter to me as long as it had a strong story. I enjoyed Huston's and Benson's runs on the series and I was looking forward to seeing the story continue but Hurwitz's run is a steep drop in quality from the previous series. Everything just happens with no impact in this story. Moon Knight heals the old wounds with his supporting cast almost instantly and there isn't much to his dynamic with them to make the reunions very interesting. Long stretches of mindless action go on without a single line of meaningful dialog or inner monolog. The final fight between Moon Knight and his archnemesis occurs with barely any comment from the two of them. There is more focus on showing an ultimately pointless villain named Scarecrow giving lobotomies to insane patients in a subplot that feels like it could have been cut out without much impact to the main conflict. I do give it a halfway decent score for having a strong start, some interesting ideas, and even some decent character moments dealing with Moon Knight and Frenchie's violent pasts. At least it's better then Vol 2., which doesn't even have the hook of a potentially interesting story and ultimately feels completely pointless.

3.0 out of 5 stars What the...? 29 Dec 2010
By Danial Carroll - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Moon Knight's gone for a little while and comes back as some Iron Man/Batman hybrid? Why? It's never really explained. Gone are the thrown crescents (now fired from a wrist launcher), gone is the truncheon, and I don't remember seeing the nunchucks now that I think about it either. His suit is even robotic now, able to support the weight of a building without MK even being in it! Why? WHY?

I have loved all of Moon Knight's past titles, but this one seems to have really lost the "essence" of the character. Here's hoping Brian Michael Bendis can pick up the pieces in his upcoming MK title...

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't know who this hero is, but he isn't Moon Knight 1 July 2011

*spoilers ahead*

I was hesitant to pick this up because I heard that they were going in a new direction with my favorite hero. I was right to feel hesitant. This isn't the Moon Knight I grew to love, he's now half batman - half iron man. Part of Moon Knights charm was the fact that he could (and usually was) hurt pretty bad during his fights, relying on pretty basic weapons and pure insanity. Now he has bullet proof armor, and seems to have a gadget or vehicle for every possible scenario.

All the main characters of the book are shallow.

Marlene, his girlfriend, VERY casually just takes him back like nothing ever happened. Even though last thing she knew he was DEAD and one of the last times she saw him he was wearing the skinned face of a man he killed. Speaking of which, they also casually bring his arch enemy Bushman back from the dead, the fact that Moon Knight killed Bushman in the first place, pushed him over the edge of sanity - then in one page of this they have a guy do a random mumbo jumbo chant, Bushman hops out of the grave ready to go, and all that history is flushed down the toilet.

It makes me wonder if Greg Hurwitz even bothered to do his homework on the characters before agreeing to write this book.

The art is probably the best thing about this book, although I'm not a huge fan, Jerome Opena makes everyone look like they have a pot belly.

Unless you collect Moon Knight just for the sake of collecting - don't waste your money here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasted Potential 19 Oct 2010
By Mr. E - Published on
(Minimal Spoilers)
I love Moon Knight. Love him. And I also love the writer of this book, Gregg Hurwitz. His "FoolKiller" mini-series were amazing and got me hooked on his writing. Here though, it's a mixed bag. Gregg Hurwitz, either doesn't do super-heroes, or has only half an idea of what they are. I think because this is his first "super-hero" book, he tried to combine stuff from the 2 most popular heroes right now, Iron-Man and Batman. Read the comic and you'll see how MK's costume looks alot like Batman's in "The Dark Knight". Or how his armor floats and assembles itself like Iron-Man's Extremis armor. I get why he did it, but I wish he hadn't. The other stuff is good though. MK is a damaged man, like psycho damaged. And Hurwitz uses that in the story as Jake Lockley becomes the main personality while at the same time tries to redeem himself from his past. As Moon Knight tries to be more heroic, Khonshu keeps trying to get him to relapse to his violent and bloody ways. Also, Jake tries to reconnect with all his past friends who have taken some hits while he's been gone. That's the stuff that makes the story good, the whole redeemption angle works because it tyes into MK's insanity. But it doesn't compensate for the rest of the stains that go with the "rebooted" Moon Knight. I still can't decide if I love or hate this book, but I do know I like the previous run better. The art is decent, I have no compliants with it, but I wish Khonshu's new look was more egyptian, instead He looks kinda fake and less intimadating. One more gripe with the book though: "Vengeance of the Moon Knight". It's an awesome title, I love it. But it's kinda misleading since MK doesn't really do anything proactive about the guy that ran him out of New York, Norman Osborn. He does alittle, throws a minor wrench in his operation, but that's it. I would've thought the main focus would be MK going all out against Norman, but I think Deadpool poses more of a threat than Moon Knight, which makes sense but come on. This series only lasted 10 issues, not the shortest MK series, but second shortest. If you like the "Marc Specter: Moon Knight" series, this might be up your alley since they're similar in tone I think. But if you like the deranged Moon Knight, with the creepy stories and dark attitude, look for the older series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another go at Moon Knight? 7 Sep 2010
By David S. Wendel - Published on
I have always been a fan of Moon Knight and have read his titles for years. I have always waited patiently for him to get the credit he deserves and I hope this series does just that. I love the character and the idea and the last series was good but to me it got out of control really quickly. Marc Specter went from a reborn hero to a nutjob in only 50 issues and I did not think that was the path this character was destined to go. I hope this series lasts and the former Avenger and recent Secret Avenger gets the credit he deserves.
