Moon Knight #8 Review

Posted by Spiderfan001 17 December 2011

Moon Knight continues to wage war with the kingpin of L.A. but is he in over his head?

The Story

Moon Knight drops off Snapdragon with former NYPD Detective Hall and gives him the evidence that proves the new kingpin of L.A. is Count Nefaria.

The next day while working on his TV series, Marc Spector's Captain America and Wolverine personalities urge him to take the fight to Nefaria before he has a chance to regroup.  That night, Echo walks in on Moon Knight preparing to go out on patrol and meets Buck Lime, who took the liberty of outfitting Echo's staff with a sliver of vibranium.

Detective Hall shows the evidence Moon Knight gave him to his captain.  Reluctant to get into a situation involving superpowered beings, the captain insists on calling in the FBI, much to Hall's chagrin.  Despite the captain's orders, Hall decides to interview Snapdragon and manages to convince her to testify and tell him where Nefaria's hideout is.  When Hall tells the captain, he is still reluctant to get involved.

Moon Knight and Echo attack many of Nefaria's operations throughout L.A.  Stopping to catch their breath on a rooftop, Moon Knight kisses her (at Spider-Man's urging).  Nefaria then appears right behind them!


This issue marks the start of Brian Michael Bendis' second Moon Knight arc, and so far so good.  It looks like Bendis is going to form a relationship between Detective Hall and Moon Knight that is akin to Batman and Jim Gordon.  Hopefully Bendis will find a way to make their relationship more unique going forward.  I'm liking the romance between Moon Knight and Echo, who I think are my favourite comic book couple of 2011.

I should also mention that Moon Knight is one gorgeous book. Watching Moon Knight and Echo take down thugs was like poetry in motion; Alex Maleev is kicking ass on this book.
