Comic Book Question of the Week: Favorite Moon Knight Artist

So many creative artists have made the Fist of Khonshu look awesome, but who's your favorite one?

Moon Knight Month continues! The Marvel anti-hero has been appearing in comics since 1975 and, since then, dozens of talented artists have brought the character to life in the pages of various volumes. This week, we want you to reflect on all of the talented people that have played a part in crafting Moon Knight's many adventures. We know it won't be an easy decision to make, but we want you to pick a favorite artist! Will you side with the talent behind a classic book or has one of the modern volumes won you over?

The poll will stay open until Thursday morning (ET), so that means there's no need to make up your mind just yet! Sure, you may have a favorite in mind, but if you haven't seen some of the work by the other artists on the list, we strongly encourage you to check out their work (click the names below to teleport to their pages). Once you've given it a proper amount of thought, click the link at the bottom to cast your vote and then tell us why a certain artist received your love. If you want to go the extra mile, post your favorite Moon Knight picture they made, too! So, who will it be, Viners? The winner will be announced on Thursday!

Here's the options on the poll. Again, you can click their names to see samples of their work.

Feel free to share future question ideas in the comments below or via Twitter! Want to continue celebrating Moon Knight? We've posted his Best Covers, Best Battles, he's currently fighting Black Canary (vote here!), and his Must Read Stories will be posted on Friday.

Never read a Moon Knight comic before in my life, but David Finch is by far my favorite artist on this list.

Spider-Man did receive this much attention. Maybe you just didn't see all of the features. Spider-Man's world was the subject of every Question of the Week, had a Battle every week, and received Best Battles/Covers/Stories.

David Finch then Bill Sienkiewicz, that's how it all played out for me

@k4tzm4n: I know part of the point is to encourage people (like me) who don't know much about Moon Knight to delve into his history and all that, but it'd be really nice if some of these had more of a guide to follow (i.e. an example of each, or for the villains one at least a picture of each). Yeah, part of me is being lazy, but I also know I'd be more likely to look up a run if I had one in my face saying "look how awesome I look!" like with the current run.

Just need to ask :) There are plenty of us Moon Knight fans willing to give advice on the goods. I'll save you some time and say that most will recommend The Bottom as a good starting block.

I like the "Character of the Month" concept (and loved Spidey's month), but I'm getting tired of this Moon Knight overload. I just think some features like "Best Battles" or asking about our Favorite Moon Knight artist don't work. the "Best Moon Knight Battles" article had way too many entries, "Moon Knight vs. Punk Ghosts", for example (I'm reading the current run by the way).

Many won't agree with me, but that's my opinion. I hope next month we get a classic character win again :)

I would say Sienkiewicz, 'nuff said- but David Finch did some awesome, smack-you-in-the-face-with-a-truncheon art.

It's not even a contest. Bill Sienkiewicz.

Thank you for the input. I see no harm in adding a lot of options with "Moon Knight's Best Battles" and, while vs. ghosts wasn't very long, it was most certainly memorable and unique.

"Must Read" stories is reserved for the end because, honestly, it's a very time consuming segment to write. It means diving back into their entire history and discussing with the staff which stories we should promote. Then of course comes the task of saying why these stories should be checked out. As for proving more information, I tried to do that this time by adding hyperlink names for each artist. That way you can see samples of their work with just 1-2 clicks. And, seeing as I use Microsoft Paint for my custom images, making an image of 15+ villains for just that poll would have been very time consuming.

@k4tzm4n: Thank you for the hard work. It would be cool next month the voting is between X-men or villians. A month dedicated to a team will be great too.

Thank you for the thanks! And yup, there will absolutely be a theme for X-Men and villains -- just a matter of when!
