Old School Review 


Moon Knight: Resurrection War 

Moon Knight: Resurrection War is a four-part mini-series that was released in early 1998. Moon Knight, having died at the end of Marc Spector: Moon Knight, is resurrected by Khonshu once again. Khonshu's nemesis, the Egyptian god, Set, is using Morpheus to do his bidding and bring darkness upon the world. To do so, Morpheus enlists the help of Moon Knight's enemies, Bushman and Black Spectre, to blow up the United Nations Building during an important conference. Moon Knight, with the help of his regular allies, and that of Khonshu, has to stop them before it is too late. 
Doug Moench, Moon Knight's creator, takes the reins on this one again, and writes an interesting story using several of Moon Knight's past enemies and allies. At its heart, Resurrection War is a battle of the gods, each using their respective human pawns, but thankfully limits the spiritual aspect to the realm of dreams, keeping the story grounded. Tommy Edwards art is a little scratchy for my tastes, but it does seem to fit the story rather well, and most of the time I didn't even notice. 
Overall, I think this series is worth the read, and would recommend it to any Moon Knight fans that have yet to do so. However, I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is not already familiar with Moon Knight's allies and enemies. 
Writing: 4/5
Art: 3/5

Oh wow, I wrote a story totally similar to this without even realizing it. Good review though!
