Moon Knight #9 - Frank Miller cover

Moon Knight v1 #9, 1981 - Moon Knight's first appearance in Werewolf by Night #32 led to subsequent solo stories in Marvel Spotlight #28-29. By the early 1980s, he premiered in his own self-titled series drawn by Bill Sienkiewicz. This ninth issue benefits from an attractive Frank Miller cover. As Moon Knight battles his foe, intersecting ropes divide the picture plane and add dynamic diagonal lines. The artist uses fine ink splatters to the background, increasing depth and contrast. The cover blurbs appear tacked on, but the layout is nonetheless one of Miller's more interesting efforts. This is number 1 of 4 Moon Knight issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Moon Knight issues. See also this blog's Frank Miller checklist.
