Moon Knight #3-4 Review

Posted by Spiderfan001 17 August 2011

Moon Knight and Echo team up to take down the kingpin of L.A.!
Issue #3

Marc Spector phones Maya Lopez (Echo) and asks her to meet him to discuss potentially working together. After giving her the location, he hangs up and visits his weapons consultant; Buck Lime. Spector shows the Ultron head to Buck, who confirms that it's the real deal.

Flashback to three months ago; Marc Spector interviews Buck Lime to be a "consultant" for his television series. Spector reveals to Buck that he is Moon Knight and that he knows that Buck used to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. Buck reluctantly accepts Spector's offer to work with him, though Spector still isn't sure he can trust him.

Later that night Buck is attacked by Bullseye in his apartment. Bullseye ties Buck up and demands that he tell him everything he knows about Marc Spector. Although scared at first, Buck quickly realizes that "Bullseye" is actually Marc Spector, and that the whole thing was a loyalty test. Despite being mad at Marc, Buck decides to continue working for him.
In the present, Snapdragon assembles a group of supervillains called the Night Shift to take down Moon Knight.

Issue #4

Echo phones the New Avengers to find out if Moon Knight can be trusted. They vouch that Moon Knight is on the Secret Avengers and that Captain America trusts him.

That night, Marc Spector sits on a park bench, talking to his Spider-Man, Wolverine and Captain America personalities while waiting for Echo to show up. Echo arrives and the two of them compare notes before being confronted by the Night Shift. Working together, Moon Knight and Echo easily beat the Night Shift, but are then surrounded by the police...


Four issues in, Bendis continues to impress with Moon Knight. Moon Knight's interactions with both his supporting cast and his other personalities are great fun to read. Bendis has taken everything I found interesting about the character and put it in this comic, portraying Moon Knight as a highly intelligent but extremely eccentric superhero. He and Echo make a surprisingly great pair and I'm looking forward to reading more of their partnership.

Then there's Alex Maleev, who is kicking ass on this book. Scenes like "Bullseye" breaking into Buck's apartment and the fight with the Night Shift are crafted beautifully. Moon Knight is a great solo superhero series that you should definitely check out.
