Moonknight arrives in time to save his girlfriend from getting shot by the museum curator that originally stole the Horus statuette from the museum. The only clue to who has the statuette leads Moonknight to Alponse Lecroix, the Chilean ambassador to the UN. Posing as his real persona of millionaire Steven Grant, Moonknight makes a deal to buy the statuette.
Another enjoyable issue in the new Marvel Color format. Once again the storyline deals with more down to Earth topics like racial tension. Something still relevant today. The Lou Ferrigno interview was interesting and informative. The Moonknight story is getting more interesting. This ambassador is a shady guy using his diplomatic immunity to shield him from his criminal enterprises. A growing mystery that hints at terrorist involvement. I eagerly await the next installment.
