Marvel has given us a look at Moon Knight for next Wednesday.  It's always a little weird getting used to a new artist on a book.  I haven't really decided how I feel about Jefte Palo's work.

Moon Knight #26
“DOWN SOUTH,” PART 1

Out of the frying pan…into the inferno. Marc Spector may be dead, but Moon Knight is very much alive. Hiding out in the dark underbelly of Mexico City, trouble quickly finds the fugitive vigilante when a mysterious millionaire begs him to ensure the safe return of his kidnapped daughter. Problem is, the girl is in the clutches of corrupt cops that are currently in the crosshairs of a vigilante whose methods make even Khonshu blink. The Punisher has come down to Mexico, and God help anyone who gets between him and his prey.

The art is pretty good.Not to excited about the appearance of the Punisher.

I just want my old kick-ass Moon Knight back.  Even before the Charlie Huston stuff.  He used to be one of my fav's back then.  I wasn't a fan of the whole Khonshu talking to him thing.  Weird that it never really happened like that before.  Guess Marc really did go bonkers while he was injured.

I'd recommend people pick up the Moon Knight Essential books for some good reading.

Yeah.  It's classic stuff.  Good to see where he came from and what he was capable of.  When he wasn't as crazy as he is now.

I don't mind Moon Knight being crazy but he's not really doing anything with it.He basically does what the Punisher does.It takes someone to be schizophrenic..to kill for justice like Frank Castle?

Maybe the book has to sell terribly before the writer gets it.

I don't think he is a moron..I think he is lazy.I think he doesn't even bother to read over everything even being the editor and chief.He can't possibly be thinking Moon Knight is going well.
