Marc Spector is a funny man. Aside from the split personalities brought about by his clear mental impairments, he lives a dual life as the vigilante Moon Knight. But last issue we didn’t get introduced to Moon Knight – we met Mr. Night, NYPD liaison specializing in “strange crime.” This issue, we get reacquainted with the actual Moon Knight that we all know and love (once again dappered out in new apparel, if I might add).

Once again hinging on Spector’s newfound mission of protecting “those who travel at night,” we are introduced to several remarkably underwhelming individuals. Their only aim is to get home after a long day at the office, but of course this without a doubt goes ass end up. The tantalizing part about this issue is the initial draw – you will have little to no clue what is going on based upon the opening narrative, just that these are normal people trying to go about their lives. It’s here that Shalvey’s art plays a strong role in conveying the series of events unfolding as the story progresses, seeing as how dialogue is relatively minimal in this one. This issue also showcases the diversity in “cases” that they plan on Moon Knight handling throughout the series, as we see a drastic shift from the nature and execution of this mission from the first issue.

This series steadily gaining steam, even two issues in, and despite the episodic nature of the first two issues already foreshadows to the potential of a larger overarching plot to come. This is truly great stuff y’all, don’t miss out.
