Issue by Issue – Moon Knight Volume 1 #7

Moon Knight heads to Shy Town as his informant Crawley has heard something is going down in the city, something big and bad. Once there, he faces a foe he has never had to face as of yet – madness! Interesting concept and execution by Doug Moench having our hero fight an intangible foe. The most intriguing part of it is that Moon Knight seems to be headed down that road himself with his constant changing of identities and his belief that they are almost real each time he dons one. Seven issues in, the idea behind the identities seems a little unnecessary as he has various people that inform for him and pass along information. If he needs more info, then why not just recruit more people? Why does he have to keep dressing up?  Another moment that is quite humourous in the book is the fact that Marlene has stopped calling Steven by his various names and only refers to him by the one, even when he insists that she refer to him by them. A good issue though not as strong as some previous ones, but still a fun read by Moench and Sienkiewicz.
