Moon Knight #5 (Just say the name Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Sep 07, 2011 12:45 pm

I’m used to the rhythm of this book now, and I’m loving it. You can tell Bendis is having the time of his life writing Moon Knight’s psychotic hallucinatory versions of Cap, Spider-Man and Wolverine, and Maleev is equalling him in the different ways he chooses to display the personalities. Whilst this issue was light on stuff actually happening, that’s just Bendis, there was still a lot of cool business, like Moon Knight kissing Echo and then her kicking the crap out of him. The scene with Tick Tock and the Policeman who hates superheroes was also fantastic, and it looks like there’s a deeper conspiracy at work here. Oh, and I continue to love how ridiculous Buck Lime’s name is. Buck. Lime.

Hopefully the art doesn't suck as bad as the writing this month.

Both the art and the writing in this title are great, Bendis and Maleev are a fantastic team.

They are a great team. I particularly loved that short-lived Spider-Woman series they did. But for some reason I just haven't been able to really "get into" this series yet. But I have enough faith in this team that I plan on sticking with it for a while.

I liked their Spider-Woman series too. I was sad to see it go. I'm really digging what Bendis and Maleev are doing with Moon Knight.

Maleev has done some really good stuff. This book, so far, has not been one of them.

Bendis is good for what he does. Sadly, his MK is almost like a parody of his other work.

If I have to pay the premium cost of buying a Bendis book, I would like it to be of better quality than this, which just seems like something they are both just hacking out.

I agree with you about the policeman. His parts were some of my favourites this issue.

Both are good on a series they fit with. I think Bendis is doing a good job and Maleev is passable here. It's too much of an action oriented series though. I've always found Maleev's action scenes to be too static for my tastes.
