Issue by Issue – Moon Knight Volume 1 #18

Moon Knight’s international espionage adventure continues in this issue and he faces a tough time as he goes up against The Slayers Elite.  Not only that, he faces off against terrorists, Frenchie gets hurt and Marlene and Anna get put in harm’s way and he must save them without them getting hurt.  Nimrod Strange really has it out for Marc and he is not going to make easy in the slightest.  Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz continue to pour on the danger and misery for our hero, taking him out of his comfort zone and returning him to his roots, that of Marc Spector.  It is interesting to see as so often, Moon Knight is predominantly a city guy now and rarely at all does he ever revert back to his identity of Marc Spector.  Steven Grant is usually his go-to with Jake Lockley as a back-up, and with so many identities in play it is a wonder he has not gone mad yet or gotten confused as to which role he is playing at any one time.  What really makes this book fresh is taking the setting outside of New York and somewhere the reader has never been with our character.  It makes it exciting and offers up a whole other set of perils and obstacles our hero must overcome.  This was another really good offering from our creative team that leaves you looking forward to the next part and hopefully Nimrod’s defeat.
