Moon Knight #17

Before his confrontation with the Tutor, Moon Knight must deal with the fallout from last issue's B-story and the murder of Hunter’s Moon at the hands of Grand Mal and Nemean. More of a horror comic than the previous issues, Moon Knight draws the two hired killers into the Midnight Mission to exact some vengeance on them. And after taking his pound of flesh, our hero turns his attention back on the Tutor and his cabal.

Along with suggesting that Fists of Khosnhu can't die, a statement we know to be a lie, Moon Knight #17 mostly reminds us about the darker side of Moon Knight, and the power at his disposal, when he's got a point or statement to make. The return of Hunter's Moon, rather than an appearance by Khonshu is a bit surprising, but the real surprise is that Moon Knight allows the two killers to live.
