Issue by Issue – Moon Knight Volume 1 #11

There has been an increase of cocaine into the city and Moon Knight is going to get to the bottom of it.  Coincidentally, a woman from Frenchie’s past returns and when she is killed, it is found that she was investigating the drugs as well.  Moench finally gives us a little history about Moon Knight’s right-hand man Frenchie, and it is a touching bit of storytelling.  Not much is known about the man and having a bit of emotionally charged drama amidst the action, and taking the focus away from our hero, helped the book by strengthening up his supporting cast much like it did last issue for Marlene.  Moon Knight is great, but making his compatriots stronger and more relatable with a look at their background and motivations lets us get to know them better and understand why Moon Knight keeps them around.  Another really strong issue by Moench and Sienkiewicz.
