The Rundown: Moon Knight begins the hunt for Zodiac, but his prey might be one step ahead of him.
In the aftermath of a series of personal attacks, Moon Knight decides to carry on his mission. A mission that will require him to take a trip to The Bar With No Name to leave a message with those assembled. One that he hopes will get back to the man he’s looking for, Zodiac. After leaving his message with those assembled, he has a meeting with his therapist to talk about recent events. At the same time, Tigra calls some contacts to see if they know anything about Zodiac.
Unfortunately, Tigra’s motives for helping Marc aren’t exactly pure and she goes out with Moon Knight that night to shakedown a D-List villain that might have information. His mission will lead him to others who have pieces of the puzzle, but the man who might have the final piece winds up dead.
The Story: MacKay does a great job with the mystery elements of this arc and I love the buildup of both Zodiac as a villain and Moon Knight’s determination to find him. The story has some great character elements throughout and the Tigra side story is interesting as well. I really enjoyed the reveals in the issue and, even though they were a little expected on my part, I was still on board for each of them. I love how the issue builds and how it comes to an end. The ending made me excited for what comes next.
The Art: Sabbatini delivers some great art throughout the story. The action is bold and beautifully detailed. The style of the art is visually exciting and filled with energy.
