> Have the Black Panther and Moon Knight ever teamed up or even interacted at all in any Marvel comics? I imagine they must have at least shared in some sort of every Avenger ever group shot at some point. I’ve got the germ of a story idea that requires knowing their previous history together.
My all-time favorite BP issues are 21 and 22. They guest star Moon Knight. Here's the plot from Priest's site:
BLACK PANTHER #21-22
In an effort to save Panther's life, Ross makes a terrible blunder, placing the future of the Wakandan kingdom in the hands of... KILLMONGER?! Meanwhile, MOON KNIGHT leads The Panther on a spiritual journey to seek healing from the fatal wounds inflicted by Killmonger.
Black Panther's spiritual journey is hijacked by Nightmare, who seizes the opportunity to replenish his power after his defeat by Captain America by grabbing Panther, MOON KNIGHT, and BROTHER VOODOO while the three are in their trance-like state. Meanwhile, Ross struggles with life and death choices as the fate of Wakanda has been placed in his trembling hands. He ultimately decides to release Hunter, the White Wolf, from prison to help him maintain order in a country whose king is apparently dead. A good deal of issue #22 is in gray wash tones, with only Nightmare's evil power brought out in green. Also, look for a fabulous Batman parody, with Ross as Robin and Achebe as The Joker!

That two-part story is a masterpiece of Afrocentric mythology and great post-modern storytelling. I hope you read and enjoy them.
Thanks takufan. That pretty well blows my story idea to hell, at least for regular Marvel continuity. I haven't gotten around to reading Priest's run on Panther yet, and sadly I'll probably never get past the first two trades being a trades only guy myself. Yet, you and Priest certainly make that arc sound fascinating.
