The Rundown: Moon Knight finds himself facing an enemy that is hard to kill.

A series of missing persons in the area prompt a man to seek help from Moon Knight at the mission. After everything Marc had been dealing with, he figures this case will be an easy one. He finds out quickly that he was wrong. What he discovers is a twisted, living maze that he has been trapped in. A maze with a consciousness at the center of it. A consciousness that wants Marc Spector.

As Marc looks for a way to escape, he discovers quickly that the maze doesn’t want him to die quickly. As Marc continues to question everything around him, the entity behind the maze attempts to enter Marc’s mind. In the aftermath, Marc pays a visit to an old friend to get something he needs. Something that will not only free the people the entity took, but could also help with his housing situation.

The Story: MacKay crafts a dark, disturbing and deeply enjoyable story in this issue. There are some great character moments for Marc in this issue and I love seeing the twists and turns that this story took as well as the thematic chances that it takes. The story does a wonderful job of engaging the reader as well as reminding them of the dangers that Moon Knight still faces close to him. I really enjoyed the humor in this issue as well and I look forward to seeing what comes next.

The Art: Cappuccio has a wonderful artistic style and the art has great energy and details throughout. I love the dark, nightmarish imagery a lot and how the character beautifully blends into that darkness.
