matkrenz's Moon Knight #4 review

Im finally getting BMB's comedy.

Review for Moon Knight #4. 
 
The Story: Echo and Mark eat some hotdogs but get attacked by Night Shift.  
 
The Good: Im finally starting to find the comedy Bendis writes very funny. All character interaction has some sort of comedy in this, from Echo talking to Carol Danvers and her not remembering her for being an Avenger for 12 seconds, to the Spidey, Cap and Logan talking about how Echo wont come. And even tough there hallucination's each of them are well characterized, Cap is full of advice, Spidey jokes a lot and is very optimistic and Logan is pessimistic. The fight with Night Shift shows how these forgettable villains can be dangerous. 
 
The Bad: Im not a fan of Maleev's art. I find the story is taking way to much time to advance. 
 
The Verdict: To me im finally warming up to Bendis, it took a while but I understand how he does story's but I just want him to speed it up a little. This is a buy.

    I've been away from comics for a long time and missed a lot of the talent development since, jeez, the 90s. Until I picked up Moon Knight #1 last week I'd never heard of Alex Maleev, but I'm a huge fan now. Wow.Maleev has a rough style that normally doesn't resonate with me, but unlike a lot of other rough styles, the lines are really tight and clean. I dunno how better to describe it, but Moon Knight is blessed with a style that is perfect for expressing the dark and gritty nature of the book, ...
