  1. The visual effects of Moon Knight’s finale were spectacular. I also realized that live action has made Moon Knight’s traditional costume look significantly better than I think the comics could ever convey. It certainly lacked the definition to depict the ‘mummy’ mask in the comics before modern times, and it’d be too much art work to do it regularly today. I also loved how Khonshu and his kin looked. (Also, called it!)

    Are we planning a review of the Season 2 finale of Picard?

      I was– busy with current writing and other projects. However, I could probably post a discussion with some strong thoughts. It rather resembled Trek‘s attempt to do a Marvel series, complete with mid-credit sequence– except that they inserted it into the show itself, near the end.
