Review – Moon Knight #3

Submitted by on July 26, 2011 – 12:11 amNo Comment

Moon Knight #3
Marvel Comics
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artists: Alex Maleev (pencils, inks), Matthew Wilson (colorist)

When I first heard about the gimmick for the new relaunch I was a little skeptical. Schizophrenic Marc Spector would not only have his Jake Lockley and Steven Grant alter egos, he would also add three new personalities: Spider-Man, Captain America and Wolverine. Yes, that’s right, he would be an Avengers team of one. Truth be told it has been pretty interesting. After intercepting an illegal Ultron body, he meets up with Snapdragon and by accident blows the cover of Echo. Issue #3 basically follows up on some of the Echo stuff, while also showing how Buck Lime (an ex-Shield agent) was recruited as Moon Knight’s assistant.

The issue was a very smooth read. Bendis furthered the story along at decent pace with some good dialogue bits….of course that’s kind of what he’s known for. I also love the fact that it takes place on the West Coast, harkening back to memories of the West Coast Avengers. The cover hints at a major villain showing up in the issue…..which he does…….kind of.

Maleev’s art still seems a little rushed, compared to his and Bendis’ Spider-Woman series in which he seemed to be firing on all cylinders. Still, the panels are easy to follow and for the most part the art is on target.

Moon Knight has had some rough spots in the past, hopefully this is the start of a long run of new tales for the avatar of Khonshu.
