SEGMENT: MOONSHINE- NEW COMIC REVIEW
Moon Knight Annual Vol. 9 #17 (2022)
BARE BONES: (Written by Wiki)
Finding Hunter's Moon's body, Tigra verifies his death and Moon Knight knows this is a message from Nemean and Grand Mal aiming to deal with him before the Tutor's conclave. Moon Knight plans to deal with them but asks Tigra step back, certain she will not like what comes next, and chains Nemean to drag him along the road, baiting a pursuant Grand Mal, riding into the Midnight Mission headquarters. As they bested him before and don't fear him like the other criminals he's fought, Moon Knight leads them into the House of Shadows where he will teach them why they should fear him. Commencing the fight, Moon Knight admits that he knew nothing about them and just treated them like any other super villains, but realized they were hired killers so he did his research and now has the advantage: he knows how to take them apart.
Grand Mal pontificates her upbringing in Carnelia made her strong, berating the American Moon Knight for not understanding, and Moon Knight has the House of Shadows send Grand Mal into a personalized Hell. Nemean's caterwauling for Moon Knight to face him has the hero, and while they could overpower Moon Knight outside in a fight, they were instead having a burial inside the House of Shadows. As hellish corpses piled upon Grand Mal and Nemean buried under rubble with scarabs eating his innards, Moon Knight elaborates the Midnight Mission is a safe place to the protected and a punishment for his enemies. Welcoming the supplicants to his seated station, Nemean swearing to surrender their pay in exchange for never returning, but Moon Knight has no say in the matter. Reminding them that he did his research while they did not, as they killed Hunter's Moon they wrongly deemed him a "sidekick" when he is a brother. And the a Fists of Khonshu never die, revealing Hunter's Moon alive once more behind him, his brother's turn to enact justice upon the criminal pair.
The next night, The Tutor welcomes various vampire delegations, especially the Chernobyl delegation, who bring Dracula's regards and regrets. The Tutor continues his speech about The Structure's claiming New York City as their territory as (one of) the First 21st Century Postmodern vampiric organizations. With planted cells across the United States and in Canada, and elaborates his conclave is a two-fold plan: showcase their success within the practice from personnel to locations and to illustrate how other vampire groups can incorporate the hierarchical model. However, they are interrupted when Nemean and Grand Mal crash through the skylight as Mr. Knight announces they are a present from the Midnight Mission, a customary gift when arriving at a party. With style, Mr. Knight and Tigra arrive on the scene in their best evening attire, with Mr. Knight stating that they start partying
