But Why Tho?Moon Knight: Black, White & Blood #3features a trio of tales that showcase the range of stories the lunar vigilante can be a part of. With only one more issue to go, I hope the best was saved for last. And I also hope this isn't the end of the Black, White & Blood anthologies because there are plenty of Marvel characters who fit the format.
RazorfineIn “Wrong Turn” three bank robbers pick the wrong cab to hijack as they get taken for a ride they will never forget by Jake Lockley. Poor fools. And Moon Knight fights off a cult in an attempt to save a young woman from becoming their sacrifice in “No Empty Sky” which also features a discussion between the hero and Khonshu about Marc Spector's role as his vessel (and what should happen if he should fall).
The Newest Rant
ComicBook.comBlack, White & Blood #3 delivers the weakest collection of Moon Knight short stories in the series thus far, which isn't to say it's a weak inclusion overall. "Wrong Turn" delivers the strongest entry with a tight focus on a getaway sequence from a bank robbery that plays with Marc Spector's interacting personalities and Jake Lockley's cab driving profession to outstanding effect. The action and humor throughout the story detail a bright side of Moon Knight accessible to any superhero reader. "No Empty Sky" provides a darker tone with Khonshu's looming form and evil cults highlighting the fragility of life. The bittersweet ending utilizes the series' color scheme well and vertical perspectives make for an exciting collection of action panels. "Astronauts" fails to provide the specific delights that make the first two entries worthwhile, though. A confused and often confusing narrative overfills the few pages provided to it so that even the seemingly simple dynamics between a mere three characters are barely clarified. Overstuffed pages and loose lines in a zero-G environment make for a read with only one quality takeaway on the note of blushing. However, if this is the low bar for Moon Knight: Black, White & Blood, then fans of the character have every reason to keep coming back.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsMoon Knight: Black, White, & Blood #3 delivers three tales of adventure starring the fist of Khonshe. Unfortunately, the shorts are more miss than hit, leaving you with a sour reading experience.
