Synopsis for "The Big Blackmail!"
With Moon Knight continuing trying to track down the stolen Horus statue, he finds that it is now in the possession of terrorists who seek to sell it to fund their goals. Unknown to Moon Knight, the terrorists are being funded by a criminal named Lupinar, who has orchestrated the whole run of events in the hopes of eliminating Moon Knight, whom he sees as a threat to future operations.
When learning that the terrorists are planning on transporting a nuclear weapon, Moon Knight decides to infiltrate their ranks in his guise as mercenary Marc Spector and is welcomed into their ranks. However, as Marc helps the terrorists ship their lethal cargo, they are suddenly stopped by someone posing as Moon Knight.

Synopsis for "Countdown to Dark"
Continued from last issue...
Infiltrating a group of terrorists armed with a nuclear weapon, Marc Spector is shocked when they are stopped by somebody posing as Moon Knight. During the altercation, Marc and the Moon Knight imposer are seemingly slain. However, Marc survives and confirms what he suspected: He isn't losing his mind, the Moon Knight was an imposer. He dawns his own costume and chases after the terrorists.
Learning that the terrorists have set the bomb to explode, he sends Frenchie to get a bomb squad to defuse it as he chases after the terrorists. Led to Lupinar's base, Moon Knight faces Lupinar alone, learning of Lupinar's scheme and that if that even if the ransom to deactivate the bomb is paid, he still intends on detonating the bomb and burning the money.
In a sword fight, Moon Knight manages to hold his own, however, when Lupinar jumps at him, Moon Knight is forced to impale Lupinar, seemingly killing him in the process. In the aftermath of everything, Frenchie manages to get the bomb squad to the bomb in time to defuse it, and after all is said and done, Moon Knight takes Marlene out in his Steve Grant persona.
It's hard to believe, after more than thirty issues of the Jet and Silver Crusader's adventures, that there was a time when Moon Knight did not have his own book! Now Marvel re-presents, for your viewing pleasure, the original Moon Knight epics that Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz created for the Hulk Magazine. These are stories that inspired fandom to demand that Moon Knight have a solo series. Kicking off this three-issue Baxter-paper series is "The Big Blackmail" from Hulk #13 and "Countdown to Dark" from #14. All this plus a portfolio of new artwork and a gorgeous color painting by Bill Sienkiewicz!
