You know, I had never read Moon Knight in its previous incarnations and I had no trouble following the new Huston story. I'm really digging it. The backstory is deftly woven in. Those very familiar with MK's past probably know much more than I do, but I know just enough for the present story's purpose. That's sometimes a tough order to fill, but Huston and the artists do it damn well. My only caveat is that individual issues are so short that a little story is spread over several months. I would have been much happier to read it in one collected format. Too late now, though, as I'm too hooked to wait.
