I believe that Bendis and Maleev's Moon Knight would be a LOT more well-received if they kept the premise of the book more hush-hush before it came out. Bendis naysayers and Moon Knight purists alike were swearing off this book before Maleev had finished his pencils.
The book itself isn't bad, and it surprisingly does not contradict any Moon Knight continuity or reimagine things in any outlandish way, which sort of surprised me.
The biggest problem in the book is the presence of a character that we know is in prison, as he was spotted in the last issue of Thunderbolts, and even that might be explained later in the arc, considering Moonie's state of mind.
Basically, this issue introduces the teaser: who is the new Kingpin of the West Coast, and what does he want with an Ultron body? The twist at the end, which has been teased for the past month, is that Moon Knight is working alone on this case. The Captain America, Wolverine, and Spider-Man that he's been briefed by are figments of his imagination.
If you disliked Maleev before, you might like him now. The photorealism is no longer there, and the action is much more dynamic than before.
Continue to bash Bendis, but this book didn't have any of the 'pitfalls' that he's usually condemned for. Not the strongest #1, but a decent issue. 7/10.
