Moon Knight #7

The series' first arc comes to a close with Moon Knight setting a trap and exposing Count Nefaria as the Kingpin of Los Angeles. Although the issue is extremely light on the one relationship that has made the previous issues so good (Echo barely makes an appearance here) we get plenty of Moon Knight dealing with his multiple personalities before putting his insane plan into action.

Despite having questions about his sanity, and having already turned him into the Avengers, Buck agrees to help Moon Knight sell a fake Ultron head to lure our the Los Angeles kingpin. Their plan, thanks to decomissioned S.H.I.E.L.D. toxin to slow down mutants, is somewhat successful.

Moon Knight is able to capture Snapdragon, but the victory is somewhat hollow with the knowledge that Count Nefaria has escaped and Moon Knight just may have missed his one opportunity to take down a villain far outside his power level.

A good end to the series first story arc. It will be interesting to see where things go from here. Worth a look.
