Rating: 4 out of 5.

After finishing the Moon Knight TV series, as I do with most superheroes I learn about or discover, I must read one of the comics. Now the history of Moon Knight has been complicated a bit, basically the Moon Knight we see in the TV show isn’t what the character originally started out as.

When I’m meeting a new hero in the comics, it’s often overwhelming for me because I don’t know where to start. So I am glad I discovered the Marvel-Verse series. I feel like with the Marvel-Verse series that I get a good sampling of stories and get a general sense of the character when it comes to the comics.

My favorite story in this collection was from the Moon Knight Annual from 2019. It’s the final story in the collection, and it is fantastic. It’s dimension-twisting, time-turning, adventure between an ultimate villain and an unlikely hero.

Overall, I would recommend this collection. Seeing Moon Knight’s beginnings and seeing how he’s written now is fascinating. I’m hoping to explore more of the comics as we’re getting more comic-based movies and TV shows.
