Spectacular Spider-Man 22

Mike Zeck Was One Of Marvel's Hottest Artists And This Issue Proves It!

I'm not too impressed with the cover but was I happy about this issue!

First of all, this is one of the few issues that presents the Moon Knight in a satisfying manner.

Moon Knight, in the opinion of many, has one of the best costumes in the Marvel Universe. I agree, this character is visually stunning - particularly in night scenes. The thing about Moon Knight is that he doesn't have  a very good background/origin story. Many writers have delved too deeply into the character and ruined their stories by doing so. Bill Mantlo does it just right in this issue. He just sticks with the mystery and leans on Mick Zeck's visuals.

And Mike Zeck's art is another reason why this issue is a winner. It is jut plain beautiful to look at. Just check out this panel.
