Moon Knight: Fist of Khonshu #0

Bridging the events of Blood Hunt and the new series Moon Knight: Fist of Khonshu, this zero issue works basically resets the stage for both old and new users reintroducing all the characters of the Midnight Mission from the perspective of Khonshu. The perspective is interesting, giving us the god's disapproval, but often grudging respect, for so many of the characters that have made up the supporting cast previous Moon Knight series saving the resurrected Moon Knight for last.

I'm not a huge fan of zero issues (especially those sold at full price rather than heavily discounted or free issue) but Moon Knight: Fist of Khonshu #0 does serve purpose especially for new readers in explaining the core characters and their relationship to the Midnight Mission and Moon Knight (although we don't actually get much story here). The comic also features a backup story featuring Khonshu which felt mostly like filler.
