    Collecting MK 7-12 AND the Devil's Reign tie-in! This was so good omg! I freaking loved this one! So we have MK on the hunt for Zodiac and we see him fight different villains trying to get to the villain and then the event of DR hit in and he is in prison but he is there because of a promise he made to some woman to prevent her husband whose in prison from attacking them and it turns out to be MAN MOUNTAIN MARKO and we see MK vs Marko and its brutal in the best ways, I loved it!

And one of the best issues when Hunter's moon protects the mission and takes on Stained Glass scarlet and the art there is just phenomenal and looks lovely! And then the coming of MK and him trying to find where Dr Sterman is (his psychologist) and the battle with Waxman (clayface?) and then Jigsaw until finally we get the big battle between Zodiac and MK and a big cost he had to pay to save his close ones from his new arch-nemesis which sets up the next arc so well! This volume was amazing! It has so many stories in a way but also continues the larger story with Zodiac and he truly is MK's Joker, so twisted and all, wanting to make MK better and believes his team-thing and whatever this mission is.. is weakening him and then the way you contrast that with MK and his mission and action and what he is doing, it makes for some great reading plus that epic ending was awesome! So yeah a definite recommend from me! Its awesome and is thrilling with amazing art, each page is a *chefs kiss*! One of the best series from marvel atm!

    I lived this book. It really took me by surprise. I would really advise the watching the Moon Kinght series it enhances my enjoyment of this series. This is an awesome action packed series with surprises around every corner. Is you think Moon Knight does not have any powers think again. This is Moon Knight at his butt kicking best. Issue 7 is set just before Devil's Reign when Moon Knight starts jus quest for Zodiac. Issue 8 and 9 are during Devil's Reign. Issues 10 to 12 is the main event. This se I lived this book.

    "Looking for the next atrocity to fill my belly. Chewing on my own soul to feel something. Exalted in my own self-hatred." Jed MacKay never misses, when it comes to Moon Knight! I'll admit, I found this second volume a little more convoluted than the first, which was the only thing that was really keeping my from giving this one five stars. I've never been a huge fan of vast, storied, ungraspable concepts in graphic novels and comic books, so certain volumes in Too Tough To Die were a little more "Looking for the next atrocity to fill my belly.

I've never been a huge fan of vast, storied, ungraspable concepts in graphic novels and comic books, so certain volumes in Too Tough To Die were a little more swampy to get through. It was the same sort of feeling I had after reading the Loki: Agents of Asgard collection, where it's all well and good to have some high concept stuff, but at some point, it just becomes pretentious at a point. If I want to read about self-actualization and the importance of stories in cultural context, I wouldn't pick up a Moon Knight comic, y'know? Aside from that, this was a really fun collection. No spoilers, of course, but you know I loved that last-page plot twist. I also loved that this version of Moon Knight was a lot more anti-hero, a lot more outwardly violent, and a lot more morally grey than other iterations. Moon Knight is a dark hero, yeah, but it's nice to see him just... not be the good guy, sometimes. To be petty, or angry, and just to do what he thinks is right even if it's objectively wrong. It makes Marc feel like a real person instead of a comic book character, because there isn't a single person in real life that just naturally knows to make all of the 'correct,' heroic decisions. All in all, Too Tough To Die was great, but to me, not quite as good as The Midnight Mission - though, I'll say that that might just be the case because I really love exploring Marc's religious traumas, which the first volume of this series did a lot more than the second. Too Tough To Die felt much more like a classic superhero comic, and was filled with good fights and action sequences. Already have the next MacKay Moon Knight on preorder!

    This run has been so absolutely stellar. The tie-in (which are usually hit and miss) was incredible and the whole arc is really fabulous. I can't praise it enough.

    Moon Knight telling a goon who doesn't feel pain that he's missing out, threatening to drop a minor supervillain into an industrial car shredder, getting himself imprisoned because there's someone in there he needs to fuck up, or bonding with a malign supernatural entity after carrying large quantities of high explosives into its innards (said bonding being over how they both keep coming back even though nobody wants them to, which feels a bit Millwall) - even before the spectacular final fight, Moon Knight telling a goon who doesn't feel pain that he's missing out, threatening to drop a minor supervillain into an industrial car shredder, getting himself imprisoned because there's someone in there he needs to fuck up, or bonding with a malign supernatural entity after carrying large quantities of high explosives into its innards (said bonding being over how they both keep coming back even though nobody wants them to, which feels a bit Millwall) - even before the spectacular final fight, this volume sometimes feels like an exercise in producing panels which look like Moon Knight-Core has been at them. But there's a solid grasp of the character underpinning the larks; as he says to some understandably wary villains, with Spidey or the Punisher, you know what you're going to get, but with him you really don't, which in some ways makes for better leverage. Something which also comes through in the way the jagged art on the action sequences settles down in the quieter stretches. Granted, the villain who wants to 'help' the hero by stripping away their support network remains a motivation that almost never convinces me, so I'm less into Zodiac than some - and the way the concluding pages flip the glorious finale of the TV show was deeply unwelcome (if certainly not implausible). But for the most part I can see exactly why this run is going down so well.

    The Batman/Joker parallels are soooooo strong in this series. Zodiac believes that only by breaking down Moon Knight to his core values can he be rebuilt and grow beyond his limits. Joker is always trying to get Batman to see that their dance is eternal and they are more similar than they are different. ..this... Is grimy. It's ugly. These are the tough choices that nobody wants to make. These are the rules that get pushed aside because SOMEONE has to.

Moon Knight takes on some twisted characters and the real thing to come away with is that he's probably more twisted than they are. This character is broken. Broken, but never surrendering to it. He says it himself. He always comes back. Bonus: There's always a price... Bonus Bonus: of course they pull from Dr. Strange lore (and a shoutout to Vegas, 'Midnight Sons')

    3.5 Stars. This title is SO Moon Knight. Reminded me why I didn't read it for a long time. Not that it's bad. Just that I don't always know which characters are Marc's personalities in a different costume, and which are a completely different person. Highlights: - After a failed attempt to shut down Zodiac, Marc gets arrested and joins the "Devil's Reign" crossover story (read that for more info) - While Marc is gone, another (apparently more loyal) Fist of Khonshu, Hunter's Moon takes over the Midn 3.5 Stars.

His main battle is against the spirit who wants to shut down the Mission, Stained Glass Scarlet. - After "Devil's Reign", Marc returns and makes a deal with the House of Shadows to use that living entity as a new home for the Midnight Mission. - Marc has an issue with his therapist, Dr. Andrea Sterman. She has been replaced by Waxman. The advice given out had set another patient, Rutherford Winner against Moon Knight. They ended up working together to save her. - Zodiac makes his move and it takes Marc and all the extra characters he's got working for him to take him out and keep the neighborhood safe. At the end, we see that Stephen Grant has now made an appearance! I'll be interested to see where this comic goes next. Hopefully giving a bit more ease and less confusion. Recommend, with slight reservation.

    This isn't yet complete but I've read all the available comics (up to #11) and I don't like leaving books on currently reading (unlike some of my friends cough cough). I'll probably reread the whole thing again once it comes out but this run is ace. There are some things I don't like but then there is a lot I really like so it manages to even out. Plus I just love having new Moon Knight content that doesn't suck ass so that really does it for me.

He continues to tell one and done stories that build a much bigger tapestry around Moon Knight, so each issue stands alone perfectly while crafting a cohesive story at the same time. It's masterful storytelling, which I throw around a lot, but I really mean it. I wanted to single out a few issues above the others, but they're all so good it's impossible. The Stained-Glass Scarlet issue, the return of Clayman, the "Midnight Mission" issue, and the Zodiac two-parter that makes up the finale of the volume are all fantastic for different reasons, this volume really is a treat on every level. Also wonderful is the artwork, of course. Series artist Alessandro Cappuccio handles five of the six issues, while Fernando Sabbatini, who's been showing up over on Amazing Spider-Man and drew the Moon Knight Devil's Reign one-shot, handles issue 7. Cappuccio has already proven a perfect fit for this series, while Sabbatini's sketchy, dynamic style fits in just as well - it's no surprise he's coming back to draw the Annual later this year as well. Mackay + Cappuccio + Moon Knight still = excellence. For anyone looking to check out Moon Knight after his recent D+ series, this is going to spoil you, it really is.

    This series definitely starts to get to its feet in this collected volume. I've been reading the single issues, week to week, and while MK is one of my favorite Marvel characters, the first volume was... Well, not a slog, but slow to start, if that makes sense. By the time we get to volume 2, the pace is definitely picking up, the thematic elements of Marc's emotional arc is starting to land a little heavier, and Hunter's Moon is definitely becoming more of a beloved character.

Mackay does such a great job with the moral ambiguity of Marc's character. He very much IS ambiguous; though he does good things, heroic things, and the Midnight Mission is very much an excuse for absolution, it is also clearly... a selfish attempt at depersonalizing himself from his own past. Which makes for some very petty, violent, and human actions on his part. Mackay's Marc is a shattered man larping something far more put together than he is, and it's IN this performance that we really see Mackay's characterization shine. This on-going (as of November 2022) is one of the best things Marvel has put out in a few years.

    I read this a little too fast to grasp everything but I'm still liking Mackay's version of MK. The psychoanalysis is always fun and an excellent way to help the reader understand a character. He's blending previous versions together into something new, still with shades of Batman, but perhaps more complex, and maybe even morally questionable. The art is still unique to me and for the most part appealing.

    Druhý book využíva všetko čo bolo vystavané v úvode série a posúva to ešte o niečo ďalej. Zodiac je skvelý záporák. Vedľajšie postavy nie sú len do počtu. Moon Knight je nemilosrdný a surový a jeho komunikácia s mesačným bohom je síce potlačená na minimum, ale stále funguje. A nápad s prerobením Midnight Mission ma úplne dostal.

    Getting to realise why I don't like this run. The art's good (there's a couple staggering setpieces in here), but basically there's too much going on. Too many characters, too many plots and subplots and switcheroos. Who is Zodiac? Why is he obsessed with Marc? Does it matter in the slightest? Moon Knight, like basically all comic characters, works best when the story focuses on him and doesn't try to fit into a 'universe'. Makes you long for the days of Ellis' self-contained issues, or Lemire se Getting to realise why I don't like this run.

    Really dark and insightful Moon Knight collection and continuation of the previous volume. Zodiac is still causing havoc but you also have Marc working to help those in need and embracing the full darkness that comes with the mantle of moon knight.

    This series continues to entertain me so freaking much, and that's all I ask for. But the ways Mackay builds on previous Moon Knight stories respectfully while also adding his own flavor and always keeping things fresh are just so much icing on the cake.

    Mismatched collection. The stained glass woman, the bare knuckle combat club are awesome, great Moon Knight stories. The fists of khonshu storyline never felt as deep as it should have for me- I never connected with them, even Moon Knight feels distant in these issues

    The main story gets a bit confusing with its many new characters and their motivations. I surprisingly liked the Devil's Reign tie-in with Moon Knight in prison; it was a clever twist on the trope. The main story gets a bit confusing with its many new characters and their motivations.

    I thought some of the art here was abysmal. The series regular artist, Alessandro Cappuccio, is way more than capable. I found this volume a bit more convoluted and difficult to follow and I wish MacKay would actually do a bit more with the supporting characters but I appreciate having a writer on the book who actually knows the character's continuity, including where other writers messed things up, and puts the whole thing together into a coherent continuation of Moon Knight's story.
