Okay, I am sold on this.

As much as I bemoaned, I am really enjoying the wit and report Marc is having in this book with the other characters. Great to see .... SPOILER .... Echo again and love the interaction there especially.

I certainly hope this new crop of villains can give MOON KNIGHT a proper rouges gallery. He certainly deserves it, as honestly, he only has WERE-WOLF BY NIGHT (Russel) ... and that is not really even a rouge.

Ironically - I'm kind of bored with it already.  It didn't make my pull list for October.

the book is certainly "talk" heavy, especially the most recent issue...but I too am enjoying this version of the character.  I love how he's never sure if the people he's talking to are real or imaginary and while he is still in the deep end he seems to be reigning it in a bit.  I like my MK on the edge but not full-on crazy and this seems to be striking that balance.  Love the spidey comments this issue as well.

This book does show a good balance of lunacy.  Grin

I am also really enjoying this book, but looking at the sales numbers, I am sure this will end like most MK books, canceled.

hopefully this one will stick around just because Bendis is writing it.  Also...looking at the sales charts, MK placed at 90 with 28k estimated sales...this is not horrible in todays standards as there are a lot of Marvel books that are performing below this one, including one of my favs X-Factor.  see below for details (I took out minis):
Rank       Title                           Issue#            Est Sales    +/-%

144   Deadpoolmax                            12          14,507   -0.82%


So I have hope both will stick around for a while
