The Rundown: Hunter’s Moon pays a visit to a friend of Moon Knight in order to get some help.
With things taking darker and darker turns for Moon Knight in his battle against Black Spectre, his fellow Fist of Khonshu seeks help from Dr. Sterman for a personal issue. His last resurrection has been strange and he finds himself connecting more and more to the previous iterations of the Fist.
In the tunnels beneath the city, the Moloids saved by Hunter’s Moon have brought him back because the men who enslaved them have returned. When a powerful enemy emerges to take down Moon Knight, Badr discovers the power he has is taking over him.
The Story: MacKay crafts an entertaining story for Badr in this issue. The dive into his personality is a welcome one after the intensity of the City of the Dead storyline and I like seeing the return of Sterman. I like that the story expands on the character a lot and seeing him outside the Hunter’s Moon aspect of his character makes me interested in seeing more of him. I also like that the story sets up some big battles as well for both Fists of Khonshu.
The Art: Sabbatini delivers fantastic action throughout the issue. I love the visual contrast between the Hunter’s Moon battle scenes and the therapy session. Both are visually compelling.
