The Rundown: Moon Knight continues to fight the Avengers to save the world, but does he still serve the same master.

Moon Knight is starting to come to the realization that something is wrong both with his current mission and his devotion to Khonshu. His suspicions one grow when he is confronted on the moon by someone he believed to be gone. Someone watching events closely and who has a different perspective on what the emotionally damaged hero should be doing next.

At the same time, the moon god continues to manipulate events including flooding Marc’s mind with images of Mephisto as Khonshu is confronted by Black Panther. When the moon god discovers he might not have as much control over the items he stole from the heroes as he thinks, he immediately escapes to look for his next target, the baby Starbrand.

The Story: Jason Aaron turns the story on its head and not only moves it forward effectively, but also allows for a surprise or two for the reader. There are some great twists in this story and as well as the story moves the events and characters forward, it does a great job of concentrating on Moon Knight’s journey. I liked following this part of the story to its surprising conclusion and cannot wait to see what happens next.

The Art: Javier Garron delivers some beautiful, bright and energetic art to this issue. The fight between Black Panther and Moon Knight is definitely a highlight, but the Iron Man and Captain Marvel moments are just as visually interesting.
