Moon Knight continues his midnight mission to aid those in need.

This was such a fantastic issue. I was unsure with the first issue if I was on board with this new direction. After reading this issue I am now fully on board. There was such a sophistication to this issue that I really enjoyed. While it featured Mr. Knight, what I loved about that is it really gave us a look at how different Mr. Knight handles things versus how Moon Knight does. There wasn’t the brutalness like we’ve seen before. Mr. Knight handled things in such a different way that I was just captivated by it. Such a cool scene and I hope we get more like it.

I also really like the characters that Mr. Knight is surrounding himself with. I think they really bring an interesting element to the story. Reese was featured more in this issue, and I think her struggles will bring something exciting and some challenges for Mr. Knight and his team.

The Midnight Mission is also a fantastic idea. I love how this is going and it gives us something new and different that we haven’t really seen before. Even just getting to see Mr. Knight and Reese during downtime was just as engaging and really brought more to the book than just Moon Knight out kicking ass.

The artwork in this issue is outstanding. The final scene was breathtaking and really managed to enhance the story. Even the slower moments were laid out in such a way that they really brought the story together and were just as engaging as the more exciting moments in the book.

Overall Moon Knight issue two delivers an exceptional installment that makes this a must-read series. It’s so fun and different that even the slower moments were just as engaging as the action. The level of creativity and sophistication in this series is off the charts. I can’t recommend this book enough.
