Moon Knight #8

With Marc Spector having been beat up and incarcerated by the Thunderbolts as part of the ongoing Devil's Reign crossover, Hunter’s Moon has set up shop in the ruins of the Midnight Mission. On a tip from Detective Flint, our stand-in goes in search of the presumably resurrected Stained Glass Scarlet who has returned with some strange new powers and begun a murder spree.

Moon Knight #8 is a weird issue, but one that focuses on the positive relationship between Khonshu and this Fist. This is certainly a contrast to Moon Knight's relationship to his god. Hunter's Moon summons his god, one of the oldest stories, to battle one of the newest (who is apparently a godling?). The art is the real highlight here, providing some fun moments even if the story is a bit hit-and-miss and ends without offering any resolution.
