Moon Knight #18

Moon Knight's battle with the Tutor comes to a close as he and Tigra crash the vampire's party to bring a few presents of their own in violence and death. We get some great back-and-forth dialogue between Moon Knight and Tutor, as our hero stalls a bit for time allowing his back-up to arrange the first-half of his surprise in setting off the ball room's sprinkler system. With the Tutor still oblivious to the dangers his entire network is in, the priest of Khonshu blesses the water.

A smart and fun issue that also gives Hunter's Moon a chance to work off some of his rage and get back into the field as Moon Knight makes a definitive statement to the vampires about whose city New York is. My only real complaint is the epilogue which seems to be setting up the return of Zodiac a bit too early for my tastes.
