Moon Knight #23

Moon Knight #23 offers the unexpected pairing of Moon Knight and Venom as the pair help each other out when Dylan Brock arrives at the Midnight Mission looking for help with the mercenary enforcers sent after him. The first-half of the comic is the mercenaries being just stupid enough to follow the new Venom into the Midnight Mission despite Moon Knight's warnings and the pair working well together taking them all down one by one.

The second-half of the comic shifts back to the larger story as Venom's keen sense to sound help Moon Knight locate Sidney Sarnak, although the villain finds a way to keep himself out of the clutches of our hero while letting it slip he's not the mastermind of whatever the ultimate plans are involving his work. I wouldn't mind seeing Venom stick around for a little while longer, but a strong single-issue story is something I'll always be happy to receive.
