Moon Knight #30

And so we come to the end. More of an extended epilogue (with a couple additional epilogues thrown in at the end) than a final issue, we get the gloating and reasoning of the Black Spectre and the death of Moon Knight to prevent the former friend turned super-villain's attack on New York City. We also get Zodiac making a deal with the Midnight Mission, a Leverage-style tease for Marc's former comrades continuing on without him, and a final word from writer Jed MacKay who promises the journey isn't over just yet.

While it's not my favorite volume of the character, MacKay had led us on an interesting, and often quite enjoyable, exploration of Marc with the lasting impression of boosting his various sidekicks into more that just roleplayers. It will be interesting to see how they continue their work without Marc. And as for Moon Knight, there are two obvious suggestions as to who the new one might be, but we'll just have to wait and see And for Marc, despite "no more resurrections," I'd bet this isn't the last time we see him.
