CBR Review: Vengeance of the Moon Knight #7

I recently reviewed Vengeance of the Moon Knight #7 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Deadpool’s purpose in the story isn’t clear beyond him acting as a reminder of what Moon Knight used to be, but without ever really saying that. I’m not one to criticize subtle storytelling, but when more time is spent on the boring, clichéd backstory of the comatose criminal than the contrast between Deadpool and Moon Knight, maybe it’s time to be a tad more obvious about the point of the story. And, if the point isn’t to contrast the differences between these two similar characters, but just to have a wacky killer appear in a straight-laced Batman-esque comic, I’m left wondering why I should care, because the execution is mediocre and dull."
