Moon Knight #12
Chalk up another “W” for author Jed MacKay. This issue is truly a collaboration between him and artist Alessandro Cappuccio because, without one, this issue wouldn’t work at all. They’ve been working together for a year now on this title and it shows. They’ve finished their rookie year and are headed to heights that we can’t even imagine. I mean, if the book has been this good so far, what does the future hold? Really can’t wait to see. But back to this issue, it’s a got that big fight feel and that’s probably because it’s one big fight. Some very surprising developments come out of this fight, as well as taking place during the fight itself. Again, we should all give color artist Rachelle Rosenberg a huge round of applause for her excellent work on this issue. The “problem” with any issue of Moon Knight is that there is a lot of white and black. This issue takes that amount and triples it, at least. While this is a very serious issue, with a lot on the line, the creative team also gives it a sense of fun that can’t be overlooked. The whole issue is just SO cool and engrossing you almost forget to breathe for about 12 pages.
A year ago, I told you excited I was for this book, and after a year of reading and reviewing it, I have to say that I have NOT been disappointed at all. I’m a big fan of Jed MacKay, I think he’s underestimated and needs more eyes on his work, and honestly, I think the same could be said for Alessandro Cappuccio. I really encourage you to enjoy this book, to go back and read the past 12 issues, and allow yourself to get caught-up in the story. I have really enjoyed it and I know that you will, too. I deserves a second look.
A great big fighting issue that also includes a healthy dose of story in it, making this an overall fantastic issue! You need this one!!
