The Rundown: A powerful vampire calls in a trained killer to get insight about Moon Knight.
In the aftermath of his confrontation with Zodiac, Moon Knight has a new mission. One that will bring him to the attention of the enigmatic vampire leader known as The Tutor. As Moon Knight goes after his operations, the Tutor brings in Taskmaster to get insight on his new enemy. A conversation that will reveal exactly what the mercenary thinks of Moon Knight and why going after him is a bad idea.
As Marc gets closer to the Tutor’s operations, he takes the time to deal with the loss of Soldier as well as the new circumstances he finds himself in while Reese has questions about Steven Grant. As Tutor decides to launch a new plan against Moon Knight, Marc decides that it’s time to have a talk with some familiar faces.
The Story: MacKay brilliantly transitions Marc from one arc to another without losing any of the intensity or humanity of the previous story. I continue to love the progression and evolution of Marc as a character and the story does a brilliant job of showcasing how dangerous and unpredictable Moon Knight is by having Taskmaster show real fear of him. Marc’s struggles continue to be compelling and his interactions with the people in his life make those struggles more engaging. I also really love seeing Moon Knight be a terrifying badass.
The Art: Sabbatini delivers some beautifully detailed panels and pages throughout the issue. The action is visually thrilling and the look of Taskmaster is fantastic. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look scarier.
