Bendis takes Moon Knight to Los Angeles and sets him up as the crimefighter there. And that’s about it. The apparent hook of this series is Moon Knights multiple personality disorder. Where, before, he had invented identities, he’s now apparently taking on the identities of his fellow Avengers, and having conversations with them in his head.

Other then the conversations in his head, there is nothing that sets this book apart from anything else. It’s actually pretty bland overall. The center sequance with the two thugs talking is a waste of space. The fight with Hyde is hard to follow.

And is that really Hyde? He looks alot thinner and smaller then normal.

I don’t know quite what was wrong with this story. But there was definately something wrong with it. Not up to Bendis’ normal standards.

The art was hard to follow during the fight sequances. I usually like Maleev’s work but this issue wasn’t one of his best efforts.

Moon Knight #1 receives
2.5 out of 5

Not a good start to this new series.
