Benson's run so far

Moon Knight - Eyes
So...Benson's first arc is finally wrapping up.

I think Benson is finally getting the hang of writing for comics, which has made the end a lit better than the beginning. Carson's return was handled well, playing a long-term foil to Marc. Something another reviewer noticed that I hadn't is the gradual disappearance of Khonshu as Marc gets more and more actively violent. The diner scene with Marlene is a perfect setup for Khonshu to appear, yet he doesn't. Instead we get the constant reflection of Moon Knight over Marc. There's a lot of ways to speculate and fanwank that, but I'm going to hold off until #18.

Overall the quality is getting stronger with each issue, though I am not a fan of the current artist (especially his inability to draw more than two faces).

I'm also not really a fan of Texiera. It's too scratchy for me and things are exagerated in a way I don't like. I'm thinking of dropping it, but I really like Moon Knight.

I do think Texiera is improving the longer he stays on the book. However, I don't think I'll every find it a perfect fit for Benson's writing.

What do you mean by that?

What would the perfect artist be like?
