    But Why Tho?

    Murderworld: Moon Knight #1 proves that this series can still pack a gut punch. After breaking out of the game, perhaps it felt like the murders may cease slightly and the participants were on the road to some form of freedom. This issue is a reality check and carries with it some of the hardest moments to read. But I would also argue it’s one of the most beautifully illustrated books of the series too. One issue remains and I don’t think the test will get any easier.

    The penultimate issue of Murderworld maintains a sense of danger, even with only four contestants remaining, as each escape from the frying pan leads into fire. While the first half of the issue re-situates the story as the remaining quartet begin to collaborate against Arcade, the titular “hero” Moon Knight arrives in the second half in the series’ most effective guest appearance thus far. Not only does a single Moon Knight LMD deliver the terrifying level of violence fans have come to anticipate from any Moon Knight title, but there’s an added layer of humor that manages to quickly shift the tone from outright hilarious to bone-chilling. It’s the best gag since a horde of “Bub”-shouting Wolverines arrived, and it marks another entertaining installment of a concept that, while ultimately reading like a trifle, never outstays its welcome.
