After getting to know main characters from 'Essential MK' book (Marc, Frenchie, Marc's girlfriend, Bushman, Khonshu) first four trades of ongoing series were good for me because they were kinda homage to earlier stories.
What happens in fifth trade? We got different writer and illustrator and change of direction. Main guy is in Mexico, Frenchie, gang and copter are nowhere to be seen. There is lot of humor and two great new characters, lucha libre style hitmen. Art is good, although much different than Texeira's.
Book has an amount of gore that is unnecessary, but also has good dynamics and decent story. If you were fan of Ennis' Hitman, get this.
This final volume doesn't give much in terms of closure but it's a decent ending to the series. Marc is dead and it's up to Jake and Moon Knight to save an innocent girl from her father's killer intent. Jake meets some colorful characters on the way and runs into Toltec as well. The writing's gritty as is the art and the story's not vital to the overall Moon Knight world but it's a good one to read. Definitely not the best the 2006 series has to offer but a good one to get in to if you're reading the series at all.
Moon Knight is one of the most complex anti-heroes out there. Is he crazy? Is he truly the Avatar of a god? Is he the dupe of an alien? One thing is for sure, he tries to do the right thing, and he suffers hell for it.
This is the comic that made me return to comics as an adult.
You want raw ? This book is it.
