You Don't Read ComicsMoon Knight works best in concert with himself. Back in the early 1980s, he was actually doing such a good job that he thought he didnt have a mental disorder. Here things have gotten so bad that he needs to have an intervention with himself. Hes struggling with himself on so many levels that shine a spotlight on the most interesting aspect of the character: himself. The villains. The confusion. The relentless combat. None of that has ever been as interesting as the character himself. MacKay takes the opportunity to really explore him, and it works beautifully.
ComicBook.comMarvel's recent Moon Knight series has done a phenomenal job of exploring the hero through a new lens while also effortlessly weaving in the character's history and complex foundations. That effort and attention to detail pays off tenfold in Moon Knight #14, an issue that brings answers to several compelling questions and brings back one of the best aspects of the previous run. One of the hallmarks of Max Bemis' Moon Knight run was in how it dealt with communication between the various identities of Marc Spector, and after laying all the groundwork for where this current iteration of Spector is, MacKay dips back into that fold with an issue that challenges the character on a foundational level and sets the stage for a welcome return to that previous arc's approach to Marc, Jake, and Steven while also keeping all of MacKay's outstanding work since the series started. It truly is the best of both worlds, and once again those worlds collide in stunning fashion because of the stellar work of artist Alessandro Cappuccio, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, and letterer Cory Petit. This has already been one of Moon Knight's all-time best runs, but it refuses to settle and instead continues to reach impressive new heights, and it seems to be only getting better from here.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: MacKay crafts an engaging and compelling psychology drama within a thrilling story about a battle Moon Knight is having against some formidable opponents. The story is incredibly interesting and entertaining for how it contrasts both struggles Marc is going through. The story has a very personal feel that works with the bigger themes the arc is exploring. The Art: Capuccio delivers some beautifully detailed art with a wonderful art style. The art brilliantly distinguishes the psychological elements of the story from the brutal action.
Comic WatchMoon Knight #14 is a great example of what a writer can achieve by playing the long game with established tropes and continuity. MacKays decision to split the issues focus between a villain battle and tensions with the personalities gives the script an uneven feeling but is made up for by powerful art and popping colors. If the future issues in the arc find their footing in the balance between internal and external, then this run of Moon Knight is shaping up to be one of the strongest yet.
RazorfineThe internal dialogue explains the agreement in place to give Marc control and cuts deep into Marc's fears of how others view his condition and that he's by far the least likable of Moon Knight's personalities. If he lets the others out, will anyone still love him? Although it takes him getting his ass handed to him by the assassins, it appears the words finally hit home. What now becomes of Moon Knight?
Weird Science Marvel ComicsMoon Knight #14 is half a step above a breather issue with an interesting conversation between Moon Knight's multiple personalities as they debate the merits of their relationship and decide on a new way to live. There's almost no progress on the plot, but there's enough potential for a new status quo to feel like this issue is leading you somewhere.
