I don't think I appreciated these enough at the time:

The lead story in 1992's Moon Knight Special #1 was "Explosion at the Center of a Madman's Crown." (Written by Doug Moench, pencils by Art Nichols, inks by Chris Ivy.) It guest-starred Master of Kung Fu Shang-Chi and featured villains and settings from that book, so it felt more like it than an issue of Moon Knight. But, this was about midway through the run of Marc Spector: Moon Knight; I had mis-remembered it as being between the short 1985 Fist of Khonshu and 1989's Marc Spector.

But although there's a not-terribly-funny "Moon Blight" the movie spoof that wastes Marie Severin art, there's also some fun retro covers from Ron Frenz, John Romita, Don Heck, Ty Templeton, and Gene Colan! Those are pretty great.

Man, I would've read the hell out of Gene Colan's Moon Knight. Or Ty Templeton's, for that matter!

yeah, who wouldn't have loved to see an SA and GA version of MK just off the covers alone...

Not to mention yet another example for people that say MK's just a another Batman rip-off.
