Vengeance of the Moon Knight: Killed, Not Dead (Marvel Comics, 2009; #7-10)

Vengeance of Moon Knight 2.jpeg
  • Moon Knight continues his mission to be a hero—which means no killing.
  • That’s easier said that done when he cross paths with Deadpool, who has been hired to kill a scumbag child-murderer.
  • But it’s pretty easy while teaming up with Spider-Man to fight Sandman!
  • It’s also pretty easy when you join Steve Rogers’s clandestine Avengers strike team.
  • Seeing Moon Knight teamed up with other Marvel heroes while he tries to be heroic—and questions whether he is doing more good playing by the rules or not—is a fun change of pace.
  • Hurwitz makes the moral debate feel natural rather than ham-fisted.
  • Huat, Ryp, Brown, and Mossa’s art is energetic and well-suited to the book’s many fight sequences.

This may not be a typical Moon Knight, but it’s a fun, interesting take that’s worth reading.
