Moon Knight #24 (1982)

Another solid crime-in-the-city story.  This time, it’s a chick dressed in red, named Stained Glass Scarlet, who uses a crossbow to kill mobsters.  It’s an issue that wrestles with the ambivalence of stopping a fellow vigilante—much as Daredevil often has issues with Punisher, except that Moon Knight walks the line of hardcore violence and deadly outcomes much more often than DD.

The art continues to be the biggest selling point of this book.

The cover of this one is a classic–much reproduced, much admired.

But check out the uncolored version, because it’s even better.
