Moon Knight #22

Moon Knight #22 offers a Tigra-centric issue (which I'm totally onboard for, even if she answers an important question incorrectly), with a supporting appearance by her son (whose true paternity is revealed), as she works through a new version of one of Moon Knight's old enemies hitting rich gangsters around town. Although we get plenty of Tigra as mother, hunter, and detective, it's her role as friend and her relationship to Marc Spector that is central to the issue.

Tigra guesses the truth about the Midnight Man long before she catches up with him, is hurt by the truth Marc has kept from her, and yet finds forgiveness in her heart when he apologizes leading to a shift in their dynamic that will be interesting to see explored not just between the two of them but between Tigra and his various other personalities as well. While not part of a larger arc, and centered on someone other than the comic's main character, there's quite a bit to enjoy here. Let's see where this goes.
