I have been meaning to try Marvel Comics’ new Epic Collection format, and I finally saw one at a decent price on Amazon, so I picked this one up to see how it compared to both the Essentials and the Masterworks series. The Epic Collections are definitely better than the Essentials, and are on a par with the Masterworks in terms of production values and the amount of material included, at least in this one, featuring Moon Knight.
I had been a fan of the character when it was created in the pages of Werewolf By Night, and subscribed to his first series for a year or so, before moving on to other things; I think it was the parody in Cerebus (Moon Roach) that caused me to drop MK and start reading Cerebus regularly instead. The issues reprinted in this volume are handled quite well, feature all of MK’s early appearances around the Marvel Universe and the first four issues of his original series. Great reproduction, color, and a massive amount of good comic book reading!
