    Moon Knight #26 is a gripping look at Hunter’s Moon’s handling of his incomplete resurrection. MacKay uses that as an opportunity to take the established tropes of his run and transpose them to a new character as a cipher into the character of Badr. Sabbatini’s art builds on the divergence of perspective to showcase action that brings the holy avatar into the dirt of the earth. Compounded by a new stream of colors, basking in the sickly yellows of the underground and the exalted golds of Hunter’s Moon costume. The art and coloring use these to unearth the emotion buried underneath logic and belief and establish a strong path forward for the rest of MacKay’s run.

    As time goes on, Hunter’s Moon continues to step out of Marc’s shadow and become his own character, and Moon Knight #26 moves Dr. Badr into more vulnerable territory. Writer Jed MacKay pulls back the curtain on how Badr sees himself and his role in Khonshu’s mission, but when the truth is learned about his most recent resurrection, the intrigue soars off the charts. Artist Federico Sabbatini and colorist Rachelle Rosenberg further highlight the differences between Badr from Marc, both in terms of how they approach a situation and simply in how they carry themselves. There’s a level of confidence Badr projects the Marc simply doesn’t have, with Marc substituting anger and vengeance in its place. And as for the big revelation, it opens up so many doors for Badr and instantly gives him a fresh angle that immediately makes him stand apart from Moon Knight both as a person and in terms of power set. Moon Knight #26 delivers a fantastic hook but also a deep dive into one of the best Moon Knight additions in ages, and the series looks to only get better from here.

    The Story: MacKay crafts an entertaining story for Badr in this issue. The dive into his personality is a welcome one after the intensity of the City of the Dead storyline and I like seeing the return of Sterman. I like that the story expands on the character a lot and seeing him outside the Hunter’s Moon aspect of his character makes me interested in seeing more of him. I also like that the story sets up some big battles as well for both Fists of Khonshu.

    The Art: Sabbatini delivers fantastic action throughout the issue. I love the visual contrast between the Hunter’s Moon battle scenes and the therapy session. Both are visually compelling.

    Art is full of fast-paced, dynamic sequences, with lots of textures and blurring of images and colors to create moments of natural lighting.

    Hunter’s Moon finding himself overwhelmed by the spirit of an earlier Fist, and a reminder that Hunter’s Moon will not be resurrected again, seems to be dark foreshadowing for the still yet unexplained arc both he and Marc Spector have found themselves in. While not a necessary read to the larger storyline, it does work to provide more perspective of the character headed into whatever comes next.

    Moon Knight #26 takes a break from the Black Spectre arc, deflating the arc’s momentum in the process, to catch up with Hunter’s Moon and his struggles since his last resurrection. Hunter’s Moon’s update is interesting, and the art is solid, but this update didn’t need a whole issue.
