The Rundown: Marc discovers who has been stalking him and his mission while also revealing some dark truths about himself.

Marc’s deal with the Avengers requires him to see a therapist regarding his issues including his D.I.D. In the midst of their session, she reveals to him that she knows that he is not being completely honest with her. When he returns to the Mission, he is told that an agitated Terry is waiting for him in his office. Terry gives Marc some unexpected news about the person who has been hunting him and reveals that person might be someone Marc already knows. Someone he thought was an ally.

Moon Knight and Terry track the location of the person who has been watching him and discovers his connection to something even darker. After going to visit his suspect’s mother, Marc makes a realization that forces him to abandon the Mission and when he returns, he discovers not only the truth about the man who has been hunting him, but more about himself as well.

The Story: Jed MacKay delivers a brilliant story in this issue. Aside from the intense and engaging mystery at the heart of it, MacKay delivers a compelling psychological journey of revelation for Marc as well. The story does an amazing job of cutting between Marc’s therapy sessions and his mission to discover the man hunting him. I was blown away by the story from start to finish and cannot wait to see what happens next.

The Art: Capuccio delivers some exciting and beautiful visuals throughout the issue. The therapy scenes are richly detailed and the action scenes are thrilling and visually engaging.
