    Moon Knight #28 is a pitch-perfect story for the character, taking the best elements of the run and elevating them thanks to heightened stakes and continued practice. McKay begins to pay off the investment of characters over the last few years, as he allows the characters to thrive in their quiet moments before battle. Sabbatini’s art is at its apex, working in bits of Cappuccio’s style for a striking one-two punch of bittersweet emotion and cascading action. The coloring choices from Rosenberg work as the glue that binds the issue together and makes the final product strong on the page. This is an issue that rewards long-time readers while showing what is possible when a creative team is given the time and space to build up a run and tell a sweeping story that remains firmly planted in character.

    The Story: MacKay packs this story with tension, thrills and fantastic action. There is a level of suspense in this arc that continues to keep me engaged and I love not knowing what will happen next. There is an ominous tone to the story as well and I love where all the characters find themselves as it careens into its bloody, action packed cliffhanger finale. I look forward to seeing what happens in the next issue.

    The Art: Sabbatini delivers fantastic art throughout the issue. There is a frenetic pace to the action throughout and that comes through in imagery that is bloody, violent and beautifully detailed.

    Moon Knight #28 kicks off “The Last Days of Moon Knight” storyline, paying off two years’ worth of work from its creative team. This has been one of the best Moon Knight runs I’ve ever read, and I’m glad that MacKay will continue to steer Moon Knight’s adventures in Vengeance of the Moon Knight. Khonshu himself would be proud.

    The final days of Moon Knight are coming into focus in Moon Knight #28, and the last few pieces seem to have fallen into place. Writer Jed MacKay raises the sense of intrigue and desperation with each and every page, while the team of artist Federico Sabbatini, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, and letterer Cory Petit convey both in stellar fashion throughout. Every fight crackles with force and energy, and if this is anything to go by, the fight with Black Spectre is shaping up to be something truly special. It’s unfortunate that we don’t get to see more of this delightful makeshift team together, especially in regards to 8-Ball, who has become one of the unexpected stars of the series. The issue’s frenzied pace allowed the ending to sneak up a bit unexpectedly, but that’s credit to the story and the final collision that the arc has been building towards. All I know is Moon Knight #29 can’t get here soon enough.

    Intense delivery with dizzying sequences where everyone can perish in this battle.

    The art is full of dynamic sequences full of speed, with many textures.

    Moon Knight #28 ticks all the boxes moving Moon Knight and his companions one step closer to issue #30. There’s plenty of action for fans with the heroes fighting their way through the obstacles the Black Spectre has put in their paths, and some nice little character moments between the heroes as they journey into what could be their last adventure together. With the outcome all but assured, the journey continues.

    Moon Knight #28 infuses the meandering series with big stakes, energy, and urgency in the penultimate issue, leading to the showdown with Black Spectre (and maybe Moon Knight’s death). MacKay’s script gets all the heroes and villains in place for maximum impact, and the art has plenty of engaging panel angles, but the villain is forgettable, and the pencils/inks look rushed.
