MOON KNIGHT #2 (1980)

moon knight crawley

Part of Doug Moench’s brilliance was his detailed, believable cast of side characters.  In this issue, we meet Crowley. 

Also, Moon Knight takes out a Jack the Ripper type.

Great cover!

And the inside is pretty graphic for a code-approved Marvel title. 1980 is the early beginning of grittier books.

I liked 1970s and ’80s Marvel street heroes because they really took on street villains.  Hoods.  Robbers.  Rapists.  Nowadays, you don’t see this stuff anymore.  It’s all big bad enemies and world-breakers.

Also, Bill S. snuck in a nipple shot.  Look closely at Marlene, Steven Grant’s girlfriend.
