Dumb. But what i like about the story is that it begins with Moon Knight and Spider-Man having already made an arrangement where Spidey will try to stop Moon Knight, and fail, to help lend legitimacy to his supposed heel turn.
In the end, Spidey and Moon Knight get the microfiche that the Secretary is responsible for, and then they beat up the bad guys. Moon Knight invites Spider-Man out for "a quart of caviar and a few bottles of vintage wine" after the work is done, and then realizes he's committed a faux pas.
I also like Bob McLeod's art.
In a silly back-up story, a band of punk rockers play Aunt May's retirement home, and someone robs the till box, but it turns out to be someone's nogoodnik nephew, not the punk rockers

i couldn't get past the idea that the Maggia decides their leadership based on a gameshow contest.

This I liked, sure it felt more like Spidey was guest starring in his own title but I liked the end bit with Moon Knight putting his foot in his mouth. Superheroes don't know a thing about each other and that certainly includes finance.

You'd think MK could have cleared the mistake up by amending it to "caviar and wine, my treat."

I always wondered what motivated Moon Knight, and now I know. It's Happy Hour! *toast*

Moon Knight should really be carrying a flask that he swigs when exchanging amusing ethereal absurdities
