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, cast your vote and then tell us below 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.

@jonny_anonymous: I just started reading volume 1, I have to say I am not extremely impressed with the interior art. Its ok, basic 80s like art.Of course I have only read three issues.Does it get better down the line?
The covers were amazing.

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

I did say "the covers were amazing", but the interior art at least were I am now isn't anything noteworthy.

>not voting for Sienkiewicz

I hope you guys don't do this.

At the time Bill was imitating Neal Adams' style, though later he started developing his own.

You post a cover, yet he said that the covers were amazing.

Finch, his art was gritty, dark, and at times down right brutal, perfect for Moon Knight. But Deodato, Texeira, and Sienkiewicz are all so great it was a tough choice.

#17 Posted by Owie (3743 posts) - - Show Bio

There have been many amazing artists, especially considering that Marvel has never put a huge priority on Moon Knight...I love Maleev and Finch and Shalvey...but Sienkiewicz for the win.

Tomm Coker, I only know of one issue he's on but I really dug his style.

Oh, Ok. Now that you mentioned I do see some similarities with Neal's Batman. I ended up buying the first essential volume because I found it very cheap, so I can see the art clearly :-)

I'm a David Finch guy myself

#21 Edited by dagmar_merrill (8735 posts) - - Show Bio

Easily Texeira. God and Country and The Death of Marc Spector are beautiful stories. The art was light but still brutal, which worked because some artists made it so shadowy and dark that I couldn't figure out what was going on.

Deodato Jr. for me. Best of the bunch.

Finch was the one who brought me into Moon Knight's world, and his gritty detail is second to none, but since going back and reading Moon Knight's earlier series, I've developed a certain fondness and appreciation for Sienkiewicz's work.

#28 Posted by webbcity (42 posts) - - Show Bio

Sienkiewicz for me. The first time I saw Finch's art it totally blew me away, but now a find it a bit overdone for my tastes.

#29 Posted by Danial79 (2351 posts) - - Show Bio

At 75 votes, Sienkiewicz is leading by 1%. Good work, people :)

#30 Posted by dontbelievethehyperion (50 posts) - - Show Bio

Finch was the easy pick for me. Moon Knight is his best work.

That said, hats off to Texeira, Opena, and Seinkiewicz... all produced great renditions of MK.

1.) DAVID FINCH

2.) FRANCESCO MATTINA

3.) CLAYTON CRAIN

4.) MIKE CHOI

#32 Posted by Jphu8414 (3764 posts) - - Show Bio

Lots of good choices here but I'll go with David Finch

#33 Posted by Spideysense44 (3467 posts) - - Show Bio

Finch by a little

#34 Edited by Hit_Monkey (890 posts) - - Show Bio

Bill Sienkiewicz all the way. Once he got into the swing of it. His Moon Knight art was stunning. I loved all of Finch, Texeira and Shalvey's work on MK but Sienkiewicz's was something else. Some of his pages could literally be quite beautiful to behold. Like the last page of vol 1 #23 -

Hard choose :(
