Books like this are awesome for fans due to their comprehensive nature. Moon Knight is an odd character and as a teen I found him really compelling. I've read about 95% of the material contained here, but having long since sold the bulk of my collection find these omnibus volumes a real treat.
Great book with a very underrated character. No one draws a better Moon Knight that Bill Sienkiewicz (maybe David Finch) and here you get to see the evolution of his art becoming eventually the Bill Sienkiewicz we all know.
Brilliant book, this collection has the essential stories you have to read if you're a fan of moon knight. From his debut in werewolf by night, specials, guest appearances and finally his own original comic. There is a fair amount of extra artwork at the back of the book as well. The book is well put together as with other books in the marvel omnibus series. If you are a fan of moon knight then buy this book you won't regret it
Moon Knight has always been a tough character for Marvel to know how to write, but this omnibus collects his first appearances and team-ups, giving us the incredible beginnings of this awesome character. He was first brought in as an antagonist for Werewolf by Night, but soon got his own solo stories as back-ups to Hulk magazines and then became a regular in team-up books before getting his own series.
When Marvel had a good writer for him, he was incredible. Collected here is not only his first appearances in Werewolf and others, but the complete back-up story from the old Rampaging Hulk magazines that gave us our first look at how dark the character could be (and really upped that Batman feel they were trying to go for). We also get the first few issues of his first solo series, when Marvel was truly getting a feel for the character. Of course, he really shines in team-ups and there is no shortage of them here with him appearing alongside Spider-Man, the Thing, Daredevil, and the Defenders.
This collection is a solid one of great Moon Knight stories. If you love the character, you will absolutely enjoy this look at who he was before the rotating writers collection from today got to him and kept trying to make him crazier and crazier. He's still got some issues in here, but it doesn't overshadow the stories inside.
Moon Knight is my favorite superhero of all time (depending on who is writing him). The concept is very original: Marc Spector is left to die in the Egyptian desert but comes across a temple housing a statue of the Egyptian god of the moon Khonshu. Khonshu heals Spector (and possibly grants him superhuman powers) in return for his vow to serve as his avatar of vengeance on Earth. The problem is that Spector might have hallucinated all of this and is actually clinically insane as he suffers from disassociative personality disorder. So is he Khonshu's hand of vengeance? Or is he just a former soldier of fortune who likes to beat up criminals while dressed up in a bright white costume that attracts bullets? Again, it's a great character with great supporting players such as Moon Knight's pilot "Frenchie." You get a great hardbound copy of Moon Knight's first appearances (before he evolved into the character we know today) but more importantly, you also get the greatest Moon Knight stories published which includes the original Moon Knight series written by Doug Moench and illustrated by the great Bill Sienkiewicz (he develops his great experimental style here). This edition only goes up to issue 20 of the 1980-1984 series, so I really hope there's a second edition that includes the rest of the series, but this is the cheapest you are going to get this issues as Marvel's Epic Collection covering these issues goes for hundreds per copy (so look to spend at least over $200.00 if you get those copies used).
