Moon Knight #6

After breaking out of the mental hospital and preventing Khonshu from taking over his body it appears things aren't going to get any easier for Moon Knight. Awaking from the trauma as movie producer Stephen Grant with the institution a hazy half-forgotten memory, Grant begins work producing a new blockbuster summer movie. A movie about... Moon Knight.

Keeping the readers on our toes, Jeff Lemire isn't willing to let Moon Knight slip completely into one of his old personas when two can do. Without warning, Moon Knight switches from the millionaire producer to the lowly cab driver Jake Lockley who seems equally confused about recent events and the agents of Seth.

Although the unique structure of the book has limited our chance to see our hero in full costume (this issue does give us "actor" Marc Spector dressed on the movie set, but not connected to either the Lockley or Grant), Moon Knight continues to offer one of Marvel's more unique offerings. Worth a look.
