Anyone else trying the new Moon Knight series? Thoughts?
- Spoiler: show
I am a Jed MacKay fan; I think he is one of the better rising new talents at Marvel. Unfortunately however I must say his Moon Knight is doing nothing for me. Moon Knight is a title that can sometimes become derivative across volumes (see obligatory ambiguous therapist scenes), but MacKay is doing some new things. The problem is those new things aren't terribly interesting. He did do a good job of making Hunter's Moon seem like a serious and formidable foe...only to then have the villain defeated by a baseball bat, deflating everything he had just built up. Cappuccio's art is fine but nothing special, and really that is how I would sum up this first arc as a whole.
