Moon Knight is Hiding Free Comics in Each Episode

The first two episodes of Disney+’s Moon Knight series have hidden QR codes that link to free digital copies of original Moon Knight comics.


The following contains spoilers for Moon Knight, Episode 2, “Summon the Suit,” now streaming on Disney+.

Marvel’s Moon Knight is taking Easter eggs to the next level by placing QR codes within the episodes, which lead eagle-eyed fans to free digital comics. Internet sleuths and Easter egg hunters revealed that both Episode 1 and 2 of Moon Knight contain QR codes that, when scanned, lead to a website hosting various comics that feature the titular hero himself.

So far it seems that only one code will appear in each episode if the show runners continue this trend in future episodes of Moon Knight. The first QR code can be seen on the wall to the left of the sarcophagus case when Steven Grant is speaking to the young girl in the museum during Episode 1. The second QR code is seen in Episode 2 when Steven finds Marc Spector’s storage locker where the code is neatly placed next to the locker number.

After spotting the first QR code during Episode 1, curious fans decided to give the code a scan and, low and behold, the code actually works. After being scanned, the code links to a page on Marvel’s website that hosts different Moon Knight comics that inspired the Disney+ series. The comics currently on the page are Werewolf by Night #32 and #33, which feature the first ever appearance of Moon Knight. The two-issue arc features Moon Knight being tricked into trying to capture Jack Russell (aka Werewolf by Night) by the villainous Committee.


This is a pretty significant, and generous, Easter egg given that a Werewolf by Night series is on the horizon and is currently slated for a Fall 2022 release. The titular wolf-man may not end up appearing in the first season of Moon Knightbut it is clear that lead writer Jeremy Slater and director Mohamed Diab are taking heavy influence from the supernatural side of Moon Knight. These comics could also be hinting at future villains for the series, such as the previously mentioned Committee.

It will be very interesting to see what other comics get added to this page as the show continues. By dropping these codes within the episodes, the Moon Knight creators are adding in an intriguing and delightful ARG-like element that gives fans a unique way to speculate about where the series is headed. Hopefully the codes will be a recurring feature throughout the remaining four episodes.


To add a little cherry to these already sweet Easter eggs, Marvel offers a promo code, “KHONSHU,” for 80% off a new subscriber’s first month of Marvel Unlimited. It definitely seems like Marvel wants Moon Knight fans and newcomers to have their cake, eat it… and then have another cake. Offering these codes and free comics is a great way to appeal to all kinds of fans that just cannot get enough Moon Knight or want to learn more about the character before the next episode debuts. With only four episodes left, fans are surely keeping their eyes peeled for more coded treasures.
