Issue by Issue – Moon Knight Volume 1 #8

Moon Knight is still in Chicago dealing with the poisoned water supply, his poisoned girlfriend and himself, also having been affected by the tainted water and hallucinating.  Good issue by Moench and Sienkiewicz with quite a bit of action and melodrama.  Moon Knight facing off against a maddened Marlene was exciting to see.  It is hard to say if she was spouting her true feelings about him or not as the poison had a different effect on everybody.  In Moon Knight’s case he believed he was actually on the moon and fighting various martians when in fact they were just regular people.  As the book goes on, it seems as if our hero either relies too much upon his helpers and informants or not enough and because of it, either he or they are always getting into trouble because of it.  It would be nice if he could ride that middle line and find the perfect balance to be more effective in his tasks.  At least Moon Knight will get a new helicopter out of everything that happened as his was totalled in the adventure.
